The Railway Description

The Railway is a dark and atmospheric pub, attracting a local cool and trendy clientele. The furnishings are an eclectic mix of 60s retro and modern chic with dark brown sofas and stools.

Relics of a bygone railway age are dotted around the pub and the open fire and stained glass windows create an intimate atmosphere.

The pub serves a variety of wines, spirits and Belgian beers and offers an extensive British influenced menu with tempting dishes such as Welsh Rarebit on Toasted Ciabatta, Lamb Shank with Mash and Gravy and Fish Pie with Green Beans and Mange Tout .

Blackheath is just

five minutes away from The Railway and is a haven for Londoners to walk their dogs. Contrary to local belief, the name of Blackheath has nothing to do with the plague or Black Death. It is so called because it appeared a darker colour than the green fields beside the Thames. The main development of Blackheath Village took place after 1803 when John Castor built the Castor Estate. Nowadays, Blackheath Village is known for high quality shops and restaurants. more

“The bar staff at this pub are have a particular issue with serving women which i and my female friends have encountered on many occassions. I have stood at the bar for 15/20 mins and the female bar tender asked the man to my left what he wanted. Thank goodness he said; "she's been waiting ages" to me, because I was able to buy a drink.”
