I'm Sue Perkins, the owner of The Railway Inn, and I would like to welcome you. The last train may have passed the Railway Inn back in 1964, but our family business is still going as strong as ever with our three generations at the helm.
I embarked upon a challenging journey in the spring of 1999 when I bought the derelict Railway Inn. I dreamt of following in my mother, Edith’s footsteps and working hard to support my two young girls. I am proud to say that my mother was somewhat of a pioneer for women.
Anyone who had met and known her would agree she was a force to be reckoned with. Edith was one of the very first landladies in Hull who ran the Punchbowl on James Reckitt Avenue and the Blue Bell in Sproatley for many successful years. Combined with my mother’s determination and the strength of my family now 17 years since the start of this adventure, I am proud to be working hard as a team with both my daughters, Michelle and Lydia. Lydia has just welcomed her first child into our family and named her Lily Edith in memory of her nana who sadly passed away in September 2015.
Together we are extremely proud of our homely country pub and we continue to pride ourselves on our homemade pies with the recipe remaining the same over 3 generations.
