Back Room Private Room 60 85 - - £1000

The Railway is the perfect spot for your booking, be it a family Sunday Lunch or a Birthday celebration with your mates. Or you can even hire out our back room privately if you have at least 45 guests attending!

The room comes with its own toilet facilities and direct access to the beer garden and we offer a free bottle of prosecco (or a cocktail jug if preferred) every 10 customers booked!

Back room private bookings need to be discussed and agreed with one of the managers. In principle we are happy to provide the room privately for parties or functions of at least 45 people. There is no cost to hire out the room, but at the weekend we ask for a minimum spend of £1,000 to be met. We can provide buffets, access to our sound system to play your own music or you can even bring in someone to play live music. Tables can be removed if requested in order to create a standing/dancing area.


* The minimum spends are a guideline only and vary according to the day and time of the year.
