About the Pub

A friendly local community pub built in 1867 as the Shorncliffe Arms, and was renamed the Railway Hotel in 1887.

It quickly became the last watering hole for many soldiers billeted in nearby Shorncliffe barracks before they boarded trains for overseas missions.

The pub was unofficially known as the Nailbox for many years because of a nearby woodworking shop. Employees there said they were going to ‘fetch something from the nailbox’ - a euphemism for nipping out for pint! The nickname was recognised in 1971 when the pub was renamed.

Darts, pool and crib as well as monthly quiz nights are organised for those who like a sporting chance in this friendly local community pub with a tradition of support for various charities.
