After being closed for a long time, and having received a sympathetic refurbishment which has preserved the original features the Railway in Broadheath has re-opened as an Irish themed pub
Inside has been cleaned and re-painted. The original seating has been retained and re-covered. Some missing arms have been wonderfully reproduced and replaced. The lounge has had the carpeting removed to reveal original oak parquet flooring. The fireplace is as was with the mirror and a real fire. There are now TVs for sport.
The kitchen has been replaced and food will be available soon. The toilets have been tiled and painted
Outside additional seating has been provided with six picnic tables and umbrellas along the side of the building.
Jerry the landlord says he plans is to have two Real Ales, one from Brakespears range and Marstons Pedigree.
So its good to have positive news about one of the branches oldest pubs, especially one thats on the Camra National Herritage Pubs list.
