SquareMeal Review of Railway Tavern

Back in the day, this was Old Henry’s Freehouse, but it has moved on, smartened up its act and now trades as the Railway Tavern (or the Railway Tavern Ale House, if you prefer). Located in the district of Mildmay – the hinterland between Islington and Dalston – the modest corner site mixes some rather sedate Victorian features and grey walls with 1950s panelling, film posters and a few comfy armchairs. Serious beer drinking is the main business here, with up to nine ales on tap including the likes of Brewdog, Adnams, Redemption’s Trinity (produced in Tottenham) and tipples from Purity Brewing Co in Warwickshire, plus Meantime lager, a couple of European representatives and ciders too – not forgetting a host of bottled stuff. Food looks to the Far East for slow-cooked Thai curries, stir-fries and noodles.
