Railway Inn Framlingham - Head Chef Aaron Minx
The Railway Inn has been totally revamped and
Initially food was re-introduced to the pub with a reduced menu, however such was the feedback and demand that the Railway now offers a full table menu serving traditional pub classics that are homemade on site using fresh, local and seasonal produce. In fact, the reputation that the Railway has already established for superb food has allowed Aaron and David to look at introducing a specials menu. It is clear that Aaron is passionate about the food he produces and this can only be good news for the diner! Aaron is joined in the kitchen by sous chef Paul who has been a crucial factor in the success of the kitchen.
