Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Someone suggested we ate here as food was very good. Its a typical local pub with a bar and separate eating area. Staff were very attentive. We had the generous portion of blue cod and were not dissapointed as it was so fresh and tasty....We will certainly revisitMore

We ate at the Railway Tavern as it was the only restaurant open on a Monday night. We found the service really friendly and helpful, however the meals we had were on the large size, think 2 dozen mussels in 1 dish! We enjoyed our...food and the friendly atmosphere.More

So not much to look at. It’s dated inside. But your only concerned if you are superficial. Because the food is great pub food. Friendly staff and very nice people. Great value for money with a garden area for a beer or three. I recommend.

This is a great local and very popular among the locals. We had to book a table and it was worth it. The ambience is typical of a small town pub/restaurant. The staff were excellent and very friendly. They kept on top of drink and...food orders and were happy to have a yarn when they could afford the time. However, being a Friday night, it was busy. The food was great and there was plenty to choose from on the menu. Next time I'm visiting Amberley, I will definitely be back!More

Busy place, we found out a group of 30 had just gone thru ahead of us, so not surprised the ribs were off the menu. Lots to choose from, our group mostly went after the burgers. I enjoyed the salmon with a lovely lemon maple...syrup, my partner the ribeye with pepper sauce. Everyone struggled with the generous food servings, we had nibbled on wedges & fires prior, so there was enough of the criss cross caps left we did a doggy bag. Great option, reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere.More

Traveling back from a trip in the mountains we arrived at The Railway Tavern quite hungry. It had a vibrant atmosphere full of families who seemed to be neighbours and expressed friendliness. The food was great and well worth the wait.
