Welcome to the Railway Inn at Sandford.


We will be shut until the New Year.

Thank you for your patience and support as we awaited an update from the government on tiers. We pride ourselves in providing our guests with the best possible experience and offering. This entails time to set up, order fresh produce, prepare the dishes, and of course then deliver a standard of offering we are delighted and proud to share with you. Sadly the late timing of yesterday’s announcement does not allow sufficient opportunity for us to do this justice for you before and around Christmas Day. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to remain shut until the New Year. We will have more details when this may be after the festive period.

To those booked in with us in the coming days and weeks, we are sorry to have let you down but we will be in touch to amend your reservation and hopefully rearrange your visit with us in the New Year.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


We are currently unable to sell gift vouchers directly from The Railway Inn as we are shut. You can purchase vouchers for The Railway Inn in the Thatchers Cider shop.

A picturesque pub in heart of Sandford that offers unique fresh foods and our complete range of ciders as well as local ales and a selection of quality wines, spirits and minerals.
Our bar area and terraces are dog friendly, however the resturant is not.
You are also welcome to use our free wifi.

Come to the heart of the village and enjoy this traditional country pub, with its welcoming bar area and open fireplace. Natural stone features, comfortable surroundings and a traditional oak-framed dining room create a fantastic space in which to relax, eat and drink.

Eat in the informal bar area or in the dining room. Expert food and cider pairings come highly recommended and all dishes, created in the new kitchen, shine with their expert execution, taste and flavour.

In the landscaped pub gardens you’ll find plenty of outdoor seating, a children’s play area and an outdoor pizza oven and BBQ.
