Of all the Crouch End pubs to have gone gastro, the Railway's makeover is arguably the most extreme. Under new management since early 2008, the satellite televisions and pool tables that were the mainstay of the old pub have gone and the interior has been extensively refurbished, making the area around the single bar look much more open plan. The furnishings are leather and dark wood, with tasteful floral displays and theatrical memorabilia. Food served Mon - Fri 12.00 - 15.00 and 17.00 - 21.30, Sat/Sun 1 2.00 - 21.30. Menu includes the pub's'pie of the day' and an eclectic range of sandwiches, including the wittily named 'Railway Club'. Roasts are available on Sundays, and there is also a children's menu. Despite the changes, the pub's range of real ales has doubled in the process. Outdoor seating at both front and rear of pub. Underground: Archway. Buses: 41, 91.
