The Railway on Glovers Row is a fantastic pub by Kirkby train station that offers a decent range of beers and spirits at affordable prices. An excellent pub with a multi-roomed interior with many interesting fixtures and features relating to a bygone era of train...travel. With lots of good seating options throughout this pubs interior it is the ideal pub to start or end the night or have a quick beer before you catch your train. We have been coming here for many years and I for one was pleased when it re-opened.On entry we gave our track and trace details and took our seat in one of the side rooms.As its still only table service one of the staff took our order of a pint of Guinness each which where perfectly served and well priced. The Railway is a superb pub and very easy to find from Kirkby train station it's a minute walk.(This is my second review of the Railway). Opening Hours. Monday-Sunday-12.00-23.30. Hours May Differ From Above Due To The Covid 19 Restrictions. Nearest Bus Stop. Kirkby train station bus stop. Nearest Train Station. Kirkby train station.More

My twin brother Stephen and I dropped into this pub on a Friday night and what a very pleasant time we had. This is a traditional pub ,multi roomed ,nice decor and furnishings, tv's to enjoy the sport, an island style serving bar and plenty...of seating options spread throughout this pub both inside and outside, its a classic British pub. We track and traced and sanitised our hands and we were allocated a table were we ordered a guinness each, guinness was poured in the correct manner even allowing time for the all important settle, we just kicked back, chilled out and soaked up the great vibe in this busy and popular pub. My guinness was absolutely superb, a thick, creamy and most importantly iced cold guinness bursting with taste, it was just so good being in such a lovely pub enjoying a quality brew and to be honest socialising again albeit socially distanced. We really enjoyed our guinness in here and the great vibe so much so that we ended up staying for another guinness each before moving on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time. The Railway Pub is easy to locate along Glovers Brow ,a one minute walk from Kirkby Railway Station. Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday, Midday till Midnight. A wonderful pub,if your in the area most definitely well worth checking out.More
