The Railway Hotel is a real community local in the large village of Walmer, near the east Kent coast. Local bands play once a month and a group holds regular book readings there.
The former coaching inn, built in 1815, also sponsors a local rugby team, the Deal and Betteshanger Lions. Its own two football teams play in the Deal and District League. Visitors are, of course, warmly welcomed to the pub, which also offers pool and darts. Birthdays, christenings and other events can be celebrated in its separate function room.
