A Taste of Hampshire

A family run gastro pub nestled in the heart of rural Hampshire.

Country Dining


The pride of The Railway is the dining experience we offer. Whether it's a quick bite before the train, an evening meal for two or a tasty Sunday roast with the family, our first class kitchen will always leave you feeling satisfied.   


New & Improved

The Railway Inn

2018 has been another big year for The Railway: an all new, state of the art kitchen now couples the recent bar upgrade. We took the closing time to renovate our entire restaurant too. Come and see what all the fuss is about.


Function Hire

Weddings at The Railway Inn Botley

The Railway is the perfect venue for every celebration. We offer completely bespoke planning to accommodate all of your needs, and will work with you to make sure your function is everything you want it to be.


Please Note: To deter commuters from using our car park we have installed a new car park system. Please be sure to register your car registration plate at the terminal at the bar when you visit to avoid receiving a notice. If you have visited and received a notice in error, please call us so we can arrange for this to be removed.
