Wow!! Thankyou so much for the most amazing food!! Your Sunday roast was gorgeous, most definitely the best food locally , it tasted home cooked, great flavour to the meat and choice of veggies .. the staff are exceptional, nothing too much trouble for us bunch of fuss pots. In a relaxed family environment.. Perfect ending to a lovely weekend.. Thankyou all

We love the Railway Inn. Staff are attentive and the food is fabulous and always comes out hot. The roasts are an absolute must!
They have a great pub quiz on a monday night which is very popular with the locals. Prices i think are very reasonable for the quality of food.

Thank you Trudy for an amazing and very fair review!

Just for your info, we won't be hosting the pub quiz during December for obvious reasons, too busy with Christmas parties haha! But should be returning in January please check on our website for dates.

Thank you thank you once again....

Warmest regards,

Kay, :)

Last night we visited the Flag and Ragged Staff in Romsey as a family rather than for a working lunch as I had done every day last week and it was excellent in every respect. This evening we went to the Railway Inn which had been recommended to us.
The place is lovely, the people friendly but the food nowhere close to being the standard of last night. Really unfortunate. Not bad, just not as good as it could have been for the price.

Hi,

So so sorry you did not enjoy your experience here with us!

Wow, you had a busy week visiting The Flag every day last week!

I cannot imagine how awful the food must have been for you as we have an extremely high standard. We offer completely fresh food and all homemade. How your evening could have been so bad is baffeling but I apologise frofusely for the let down!

I do hope you may return to try us again as I am confident we offer the highest quality pub food possible!

I wonder if you aired your dissatisfaction on the night and wonder how this was resolved. I do apologise that I have no recollection of this evening.

I am saddened by your review but will be taking action.

Warmest regards,

Kay :)

Staying at the Hilton Ageas Bowl 3 miles away so came here for dinner having read tripadvisor for tips. Staff (Dan M), food & beer made for the perfect evening. Just what we were looking for. There were so many lovely choices on the menu and coupled with the specials board it took 15 minutes just to narrow down our choices. We shared tempura vegetables in a subtle wasabi dressing for starter. Enough for the 3 of us to have a few pieces each - asparagus, courgette, mushrooms. Mains were burger, supreme of chicken and duck in apple and calvados sauce. All perfectly cooked. Great veg. Great sauces. Prices good. Service good. Shame. If I lived closer I would definitely return.
