The Railway Inn

The Railway Inn is a large community pub in Portslade best known for our great food, friendly staff, and welcoming atmosphere. We are a family & dog friendly pub with a large beer garden out the back and we serve tasty food & drinks 7 days a week. We’ve got plenty of space for friends, family, colleagues, and the whole gang to come and relax or celebrate a special occasion with us.

We welcome you all to come and enjoy our fantastic selection of draught beers & ales, wines & spirits and much more. With our popular Mexican street food menu, daily specials, kids’ menu, and traditional roasts on Sundays, we’ve got something for everyone to enjoy.

Our beer garden wraps around the back of the pub and has recently been renovated to make even more space. We also have a cosy side garden with booths.

There’s also our dedicated function venue, The Platform. With its own private bar, professional grade sound-system and party lighting, and mezzanine level, it’s the perfect place to hold your next special event or private function.

The Railway Inn is part of the Good Times Pubs & Bars family. You may be familiar with some of our other pubs in Brighton & Hove and we are proud to bring the same welcoming atmosphere to the Portslade community.

Come pop in for a pint and say hello.
