Atmospheric recreation of a refreshment room on a GWR terminus station modelled on Ross-on-Wye, gateway to the Severn Valley Railway, and next to the main line station. In winter a warming log burner adds to the ambiance. Eight hand pumps dispense regular beers from Hobsons, Bewdley, Wye Valley and Bathams, with changing guest beers from regional and national breweries. The latest guest ales are often on Facebook, and those coming up are displayed at the back of the bar. Up to three still ciders are also available. The bar can get busy when trains arrive but the rush soon subsides. Breakfasts are served daily until 11am, good value pub meals are available until 4pm with basket meals thereafter until 10pm, cobs and snacks are also available. Meal deals including a drink are usually available for a tenner. It won local CAMRA Gold Pub of the Year 2019 for its ambiance, friendly welcome and excellent beers. Bottled beers from Bewdley Brewery are served on trains. Real ale pubs near stations along the line and at Bridgnorth are an attraction for locals and visitors using the railway. The Railwayman's Arms on Bridgnorth Station is an attractive watering hole after a trip up the line.
