The Railway Inn


At The Railway Inn, Sandford, a warm welcome awaits you. Treat yourself to a delicious meal in our restaurant, have a bar snack in our cosy bar, or simply enjoy a pint of Thatchers Somerset Cider.

The food we proudly serve features regional and seasonal ingredients from local producers, with a strong emphasis on great quality, great taste and sensible prices.

Our drinks menu is carefully chosen, with of course the full range of ciders from Thatchers; beers, wines and soft drinks.

Our team of enthusiastic front of house staff love to share their knowledge and appetite for products with guests, and are proud to go that extra mile in making visits a memorable one.

The Railway Inn has been at the hub of Sandford village for over 140 years. As a reminder of its long tradition, the original signals from the old Sandford railway line take pride of place outside, together with two authentic oak vats.

The Railway Inn Cider House and Kitchen is decorated with artefacts and pictures reflecting the cidermaking heritage of Thatchers. Keen to represent local craftsmanship at its best, the bar and restaurant has been given extra special interest with hand carvings in English oak describing the story of the cidermaking year.

A short walk along the road and you’ll come to the Thatchers Cider Shop. Here the shelves are packed with our ciders, alongside produce such as local cheeses and chutneys, and gifts including books and clothing. Our draught ciders are available straight from the barrel so you can try before you buy.
