The Railway Inn
Opposite St. George Hotel and halfway up Grivas Diginis Street, is one of my favourite pubs and now that Amy from Leicester and Chris from North London are the new landlady and landlord, they’re continuing where Anna left off and added a few ideas and the locals, ex pats and a few tourists who don’t mind straying off the beaten track are loving it !
This is as traditional an English pub as you’ll find in Cyprus. It’s on a corner for starters, with wooden decking and comfy seating outside on the shaded beer terrace, inside its cosy, with lots of dark wooden beams, pictures and railway memorabilia and a gorgeous open fire in the winter, to warm your brandy on …
Amy and the crew are out front serving your drinks, over a gorgeous, busy, fully stocked bar, boasting Carling, Marston’s Ale, Oyster Stout, John Smiths, Becks, Keo, Carlesberg and Leon on Draught . with bottled beers, ciders and all your fav tipples . plus a good selection of wines that Amy serves from 11 am 😉
Is traditional English pub food, with self made master chef, Chris in the kitchen, must be the Cypriot in him . There’s such a nice variety, including home made Steak & Kidney and Chicken & Mushroom Pies served with proper chips or Chilli con Carne, Omelettes, Grills and loads more and they always have special offers at lunch time and on theme nights …
Fish & Chips Night
Freshly Frozen North Atlantic Cod, cooked in a proper fish range, home cut chips, with yummy mushy peas, for only €13 per couple, and it don’t have to be Friday coz they serve it all week …
Burger & Beers
Delicious home made beef burgers, flambé grilled over real charcoal, served with pint of beer or a glass of wine for only € 6.50 . Brilliant !
Look out for their excellent BBQ Nights … Chris is a master on the BBQ, selecting only succulent Chicken or Pork Souvla cuts, slow cooked over real charcoal and served with jacket potato, salad, dips and Pitta for only €5.00 . Mad huh ???

OMG ! you’d better leave some room for dessert . my faves are the Home made Apple Pie, and the Chocolate Fudge is to die for . and The Pancakes with orange and brandy sauce served with ice cream are so mooorish you’ll be back the next day …
You must check out their entertainment program with live Soul, Motown and Reggae Nights and regular visits from the brilliant Chris Andre, Dru Chapman and loads more . and I’ll let you into a little secret, Chris is a well tuned musician, so if you can get him out of the kitchen tell him Tony said play us a tune !
I once asked Chris and Amy why everything is so special and they said, it because we do the things we’re good at … makes sense !
