We came to this pub for the first time this evening. What a surprising evening! Friendly, lively, great crowd, the Karaoke was super fun. Definitely a place to recommend. Beer is well kept and staff helpful and friendly. ...in ten years of owning a place here I ask myself, why didn't I come before? We will return. Fab!

We called into this pub whilst visiting Aldeburgh. It wasn't very impressive compared to other pubs that we visited locally and they served a very poor pint of Adnams Broadside. Although this was the nearest pub to our accommodation, we weren't tempted to go back.

Very friendly folk and a good pint. Real locals pub. Cribbage. Quizes. Dartboard. Pool table. Juke box (free on Thursdays!). Well kept Adnams ales. Probably a very lively place on a Friday or Saturday night. We where there on a Thursday! Pretty quiet, just us and the crib players plus one or two locals. They don't serve food though, so... More

Only reviewing the pub as never stayed in the accommodations of the Railway inn. Very nice pub with a great selection of ales, lberta and spirits. Very nice bar staff and very nice atmosphere. Pool table and Jude box makes this pub a very nice place to come and have a drink with friends

Breakfast was superb and set us up for the day, top class produce. Went in the bar in the evening and... More

Only just leaving our comments after staying last February, we enjoyed our two night stay. Our double room was furnished nicely and provided what we needed. The ensuite was looking a little tired but was perfectly ok to use. Now regarding noise, yes, it's a pub... The best way to handle the noise is to go downstairs and join in!... More

The Railway Inn is a great place to stay. We were made very welcome and were pleased to be asked if we wanted veggie sausages for our breakfast, as we are vegetarians. Nice pub, decent room, excellent beer from Adnams and a very thoughtful host, Aldeburgh is a very good place to visit and we hope when we come back... More

This is my second visit to The Railway and I was as pleased as the first time I visited. I had to stay in the twin room as the single was booked which was completely fine. The room was spacious, tidy and very clean, and so was the bathroom. You could hear some noise from downstairs which is what you... More
