The Railway


The Railway opposite Putney Station made its debut as a tavern in the year 1889, and we're thrilled to reintroduce it by its original name. Whether you're a local resident or just passing through, join them for an array of sensational seasonal dishes and traditional pub favourites. They offer a diverse selection of delightful beverages, spanning from expertly crafted cocktails to artisanal beers, all served with a hearty dose of genuine hospitality.

At The Railway, there's always something happening, including their weekly trivia night and an indulgent bottomless brunch. As the very place where The Police headlined their inaugural performance back in 1997, The Railway are excited to revive live music with their Loft Sessions. So, please take a seat, make yourself comfortable, and let's embark on this journey together. Just a short walk from Putney Heath and the River Thames.
