Railway on the right lines

The Railway Hotel in Birtley, Tyne & Wear, is on the lookout for a new engine driver. Current tenant Alan Lynn is moving on and owner John Brearley is inviting talented, passionate and committed teams or individuals to continue its forward momentum.

John Brearley says: “The Railway Hotel has been splendidly refurbished, from the garden with its quoits to a proper catering kitchen with the interior refreshed and the flat above renovated. It’s all physically ready to go offering quality traditional ales and great craft beers with a difference.

“What it needs now is someone with real passion and drive to really get hold of it. It’s a good moment to be involved and a very attractive proposition for an enthusiastic tenant.”

The Railway Hotel sparkles from its Ionic pillars to the deep-buttoned upholstery, impressive island counter, domed stained glass skylight and original mirrors.

Another attraction is a workshop at the rear of the pub that could easily house a microbrewery, tapping into the emerging trend of provenance and individuality.
