New landlords John Murphy and Susan George reopened the doors of the Railway Hotel in August, following a lengthy period of restoration. The village pub has undergone a complete transformation, with extensive works being carried out both inside and out, offering guests every luxury on their doorstep.
The modifications were designed to provide all the warmth and cosiness of a traditional village pub alongside all the modern creature comforts that you would hope for. All the renovations have been carried out to be sympathetic towards the age and feel of the building, whilst still feeling fresh and modern – hopefully catering for everyone!
Catering for everyone is certainly the Railway Hotel’s motto. Located right in the centre of the village, John and Susan are keen to make sure that locals continue to feel welcome. They are keen for the pub to become the hub for village life once again, and are doing everything possible to get the Railway Hotel involved in community life. With village pubs closing fast and frequently, they are determined to make sure that the residents of West Horndon always have somewhere to come together.
