Wow. Fabulous food and faultless hospitality. If looking for somewhere to share special times ; look no further. Everything homemade, beautifully presented and delicious. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you .

Chose the railway inn as it was fairly close to Alton Towers, the accommodation is very basic, the room we were given is in need of a deep clean, were surprised to only be given two towels for a family of four (I know I could have asked for more), there was no coffee tea making facilities in the room...

Lovely food and staff. A real shame the renovations not complete yet, felt unfinished. perhaps they should have completed works before re-opening. We will certainly come back and hope the renovations are completed to a high standard ASAP. Massive potential to be one of the nicest pubs in the area. Great location next to Churnet Valley railway.

A family friendly pub with fantastic food and service. We visited the railway on 22/04/2017 and we were looked after from the moment we walked through the door. The food was absolutely fantastic, the staff polite and friendly, and a good selection of drinks. Looking forward to our next visit.
