About the Pub

The Railway was acquired by Fuller's in 2012. Re-opened 27th Sept 2013 after a major refurbishment and name change. The pub is located right on the tube line's eastbound platform, although you can't access it from the platform. The yellow brick building forms part of the original station complex, which was built in the 1860’s and was originally the station's Timber Steaming Hall, then later; it became the Station's buffet room before it was finally converted into a pub. It's an attractive old building with oak beamed ceilings which are around 25 feet high. The main features include a huge arched ornate conservatory atrium (now used as a dining area) and floor-to-ceiling picture windows looking directly onto the platform of the station. There is an outside seating area at the front.
