The Railway Pub under new management
One of Southend's most iconic pubs is under new management after an eleventh-house fund raiser saved it last year.
Popular pub, The Railway Hotel, will be managed by James Vessey-Miller & Reece Learmouth from July.
Yesterday, current Owners of the pub Fi & Dave Dulake took to social media to welcome the new manager's on board:
Just last year, the pub was threatened with closure, but a surprising fund raising campaign was launched and after amazing donations by the public thought to be around the £12,000 mark, the venue was saved from closure.
New Manager's James and Reece are keen to extend reassurance in that the pub will remain a live music venue, serving vegan food and proudly play host to the town's artistic and cultural scene.
