The space hire was excellent and easy. For a party of 50 people they only designated 1 full time bartender to our party which was a bit disappointing, there was on occasion a 2nd bar man but he wasn't dedicated to our party. This was a work drinks event to send off one of our senior executives. The music was a little too loud which conversations eventually drowned out but we had a short presentation and asked for the music to be turned down a bit but the staff didn't have control of the volume so I think about half of our party missed out on the speeches because they couldn't hear. If you don't plan to have speeches then it's fine. Other than that it was a classy place ideal for after work drinks Sherma visited Rail House Cafe on 30 Aug 2017

Great venue for a birthday dinner. Food was delicious as ever and service was great. Dining on the upper level was much more private and spacious. Only slight surprise was the "cake charge"! visited Rail House Cafe on 11 Aug 2017

I booked the upstairs area for a hen do of 10 people. Booking and pre-ordering was made really easy. The food was excellent and Feast menu offered a great experience. The location at Victoria means a Saturday evening wasn't very busy so it lacked a bit of atmosphere and the skeleton staff made it seem that one waiting staff member was on his own, and the dessert had to be chased.

Organised my birthday celebration which was great. The staff all really helpful with the organising and on the night were very efficient. I found it so refreshing going somewhere where the music is not played so loud that you can't have a conversation. Please keep it that way! Will definitely go back. visited Rail House Cafe on 23 Aug 2017

Very helpful staff - willing to accommodate a very tame hen lunch and they let us decorate the area (which was a great private area) and helped me set up the iPad with the TV which was really lovely as I am not technical at all. Very good service and helped us spilt the bill at the end which again was very nice of them. Good waiter too! visited Rail House Cafe on 20 Aug 2017

My Team had a great breakfast here, about 18 of them in total. They enjoyed the food and the selection although not as keen on the chia seed pots, but thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the food when it came out. Thanks again for a great venue visited Rail House Cafe on 04 Aug 2017

A 60th birthday family lunch with the feast menu. The bill for food alone was £495. Two of us didn't eat much due to chemo treatment, two were children under 10 years, leaving seven adults eating a full meal. The food was lovely but insufficient to go around. We were all quite hungry afterwards. The starters were very nice but only a small amount of each. For example, two small plates of baby squid which divided 11 ways, didn't go far. However, I was particularly disappointed with the main courses. There was a small piece of lamb each. It looked more on the plate because large pieces of aubergine were on the platter too. Four dessert plates of chicken & rice and a few small plates of vegetables and salad.. this food wouldn't have equated to a dinner plate of food per person? There was meant to be English asparagus as a main dish but no one remembers it at all, just plates of charred sweet corn. Unfortunately, I was distracted because I was unwell and had to keep leaving the table, so didn't notice this until it was discussed later. I only noticed that there was nothing much left when I came to eat. The dessert of apple crumble turned out to bed individual apple pies and the creme brûlée were panna cotta but we could live with that. The venue was great and the staff were friendly and appeared fairly efficient. They did not hurry us from the table after two hours so that works well for our group. It was pretty quiet there. I just felt that the term Feast was ambiguous and this should be clarified. This was the second family meal that I had arranged for my husbands birthday and this was the least satisfactory. visited Rail House Cafe on 08 Jul 2017

Had a great birthday night out for drinks in the bar upstairs. The staff were all really friendly and attentive. Only downside was the temperature - it was pretty warm inside, but it was a hot day! visited Rail House Cafe on 08 Apr 2017

The staff were really attentative to our group. A great selection of drinks especially beers and lagers. My only reason for giving 4 stars is that it was a little warm in the upstairs bar. visited Rail House Cafe on 06 Apr 2017

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Rail House Cafe on Thursday 16th March. Everyone thought the food was delicious and that the restaurant was beautifully decorated. A variety of the menu was ordered and the only compliant by guests was that they wanted to sample every dish as each meal was so well presented. We preordered as we were a group of 20 people and the customer service in advance of our booking was appreciated. The wait staff were also great on the day and were attentive and had provided name cards with the preorders in order to make the service smoother. This was also appreciated by the group. One small criticism was that the food was slightly slow in arriving to the table particularly in circumstances where we had preordered. It would have been an acceptable waiting time for a dinner service however for lunch we were under time constraints to return to the office and the delay at the beginning caused several attendees to leave once they had finished their meal i.e. no time for dessert or coffee. I queried this with the head waiter and he promptly passed my message to the kitchen and the food arrived shortly after. I understand this was to allow the party to enjoy their first drink and to possibly order wine but as mentioned, we needed a quicker turn around for lunch. Overall our lunch at the Rail House was a success and we look forward to dining there again. visited Rail House Cafe on 16 Mar 2017
