The Railway Inn is a white and wood-panel boozer a few goose-steps from Leam’s railway bridge.
The pub dates back to 1841.
Brothers Lon and Liam have been its licensees for over 18 years – a duration beaten only by Joseph Hartopp’s 40 year stint from 1912 to 1952.
The pub’s central bar services two rooms filled with pub entertainment essentials, such as: a TV, a jukebox, slot machines, darts and a pool table.
I told Lon about  Pockets of [Leamington Spa] and he gave the assemblage a plastic shot glass.
I asked him what drink he’d put in the shot and he told me that he favours sambuca. He then gave me a shot of sambuca on the house.
Lon told me to next visit Mr Murphy at Murphy’s.
