Sausage and mash. A staple British comfort food.
The Railway in Cheltenham are well known for their epic sausage and mash dishes, varying in meats and flavours. I’ve wanted to visit for a while now.
There are over 10 variations of their award winning sausages and a choice of either, stilton, wholegrain mustard, plain, garlic and sweet potato mash.
A traditional pub with a modern twist set in the centre of town, but down a quiet street: you’d probably miss it if it wasn’t for the buzz around their food. You’ll be warmly welcomed whether you’re there for food, drink or both.
On what felt like the sunniest day in a long time we opted for a seat in the garden. Still with a Spring chilly edge a large plate of comfort food went hand-in-hand.
Before our food came out, an impressive selection of mustards appeared on our table.
Not before long, the main features were placed in front of us. James went for the lamb sausages with stilton mash and beef and red wine gravy, Steph stuck to tradition and had the pork sausages with mustard mash and cider gravy, I went a little off-piste with spicy mexican sausages and sweet potato fries.
James claimed the sweet potato fries as the best he’d ever had – and it takes a lot to impress him! My sausages had a great amount of heat to them and the other dishes were given high praises all round.
But fear not, if bangers and mash aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other options on the menu.
