A warm welcome awaits all who drop in the traditional Railway Inn. It’s a quintessentially British village pub offering relaxed drinking and dining, both in the snug bar and in the recently updated beamed restaurant. The pub can be found in the village of Ripple and plays a prominent part in the community. On the evening we dined, choices were displayed on a blackboard and I couldn’t say no to the battered cod (made to a special recipe using real ale) with mushy peas and chips, while my partner opted for the hearty mushroom and pepper lasagne from the six vegetarian and vegan choices available. On Sunday, you can enjoy the traditional roast with three choices of meat and all the trimmings. Look out for special themed nights – the extremely popular monthly pie night isn’t to be missed. All in all, The Railway Inn ticks every box.
