Railway Hightown

Charming Village Pub

The Railway is located in Hightown, a small village near Congleton. The pub is situated next to the Macclesfield Canal and is adjacent the Congleton Train Station. Within half a mile radius there are nearly 5,000 adults and only 2 other pubs, meaning the The Railway is in a prime location.

Trading Area & Facilities

The interior of the Railway in Hightown consists of lively mix of colours and aesthetics that range from purple tartan seating and walls to abstract artwork. One lounge boasts a log burner that is surrounded by exposed brickwork. There is an unused fireplace that can be used as a display area. Multiple windows throughout the trading areas increase the level of natural light in the pub, creating a friendlier and more welcoming atmosphere.

Externally, there are multiple outdoor trading areas including a large grass lawn with a children's play area and fixed bench seating which is accessed by going through the large car park to the rear. From this area, patrons can catch a match of bowls on the Bowling Green next to the pub if they time their visit right! At the entrance there is additional benched seating with various flower pots to liven up the aesthetic to passers-by.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of bedrooms, kitchen & bathroom and a lounge and where required there will be appropriate works carried out in line with the Star Pubs & Bars Ready to Trade Promise.
