Pub - Restaurant - Beer Garden



The Railway Inn is one of very few independently owned traditional village pubs in Edinburgh. Originally established as a public house in 1891, The Railway Inn was the closest pub to the Railway Station and quickly became a firm favourite with both locals and visitors to the area. Nearly fifty years later, the trains might have gone, but The Railway Inn remains a local institution. New landlords Darren & Corinne took control of the venue in 2018, after Darren’s uncle, Alistair, decided to sell following 27 years behind the bar.

Darren & Corinne have over 30 years of experience between them in the licensed trade and are keen to keep the feel of The Railway Inn as the family run bar at the heart of the local community. Under their management, The Railway Inn will offer a family friendly atmosphere, welcoming kids from as young as five until 8PM.

Our Restaurant

At The Railway Inn

As a family run restaurant we have a huge passion for food. We believe it is a key ingredient to the long term success of our business. With this in mind, food wise, you’ll find an variety of locally sourced ingredients to accompany everything from an afternoon tea to an evening with friends. Food is served Monday to Friday 12.00 – 2.45pm.

In the summer, take in the sunshine and enjoy our dishes in our private & fully seated outdoor garden, a rarity within the city of Edinburgh. Have food cooked fresh from our bbq whilst you sip on some cider with friends.

If you’re a fan of live sport then why not enjoy your food whilst taking in a game of either football or rugby on one of our big screens. Whether it’s the 6 Nations, Champions League or the Scottish Cup final we’re pleased to show live games on both Sky & BT Sports for you to enjoy at The Railway Inn
