"Cheap and cheerful"

The Railway Hotel in Lytham is a branch of Wetherspoons, it is quite a new pub and only opened in July 2012. It was previously another pub.

My husband and I first went here in January, on a rare us only night out.
We went for something to eat and drink. We travelled through Lytham centre to get there and the pub is quite near the railway station.

It is very bright in the Railway (like all Wetherspoons).
As we entered the bar was to the right and went all the way round that side so it is quite big. There wasn't a big queue and we ordered a bottle of house red and went and found a table. The bottle of wine cost just £7.09 which I was impressed with.

We found a table and looked at the menu, again I was quite impressed as it seemed to have quite a few vegetarian meals which you don't normally get such a variety in a pub.

My husband chose the all day vege brunch which consisted of 3 quorn sausages, 2 eggs, chips and beans - that was huge for my hubby and he didn't quite finish it off.
I opted for the vege burger and chips, i found the burger a bit spicy but I am a bit of a wuss. When we took our daughters another time my eldest had the vege burger and didn't find it in the slightest bit spicy.
I decided after going the second time where I had the brunch I would try the vege sausage and mash or be boring and have a pannini.

There are other options available for vegetarians such as 5 bean chilli a vegetarian roast which I didn't like the sound of (Mushroom, Chickpea & Pumpkin Seed Roast served with potatoes, vegetables yorkshire puds and gravy), jacket potatoes and pasta.

For meat eaters there was ribs, burgers, gammon, steak, chicken and all day brunch. I must say that this isn't the full menu (for the mains) and there was plenty of sides and starters such as chips, onion rings, garlic bread and nachos etc.
There was plenty of ice creams, pancakes and cheesecakes for afters.
There is a range of drinks like you would expect in a pub including some cocktails and coffee.
The menu is often changed so will differ from time to time.

There are 2 entrances, at the front there are some table and chairs outside. The second time we went we sat at the back of the pub but were too close to the door there and it was very drafty as people kept coming and going through it, and even going out to smoke. So best not to sit at the table next to the door.

The place is spacious and family friendly (meaning they allow children in).
The toilets are towards the back of the pub and were clean and bright with plenty of mirrors (well the female ones were I didn't check out the male ones).
Each meal cost us around £5.

A nice pub with good cheap food and alcohol was cheap.
