The Attic

The Attic is the newest offering from The Railway Inn and is the new name for what was the upstairs bar. Anyone who remembers the place from old will remember when a hole was cut in the ceiling and a balcony put in on the floor above. Now, the hole has been filled in, and The Attic has been born.

Kitted out with a hi-spec Nexo PA, The Attic has a cabaret feel about it and is a very comfortable place to see the quieter side of what we do with a mixed up selection of furniture, and old lamps.

Already, names such as Martin Carthy, Dave Swarbrick, Martin Simpson, Chris Wood, Miles Hunt, Martin Stephenson, Lau, Simone Felice, Robyn Hitchcock, Mark Morriss and many others have played on The Attic stage.
