Severn Bridge & Railway Hotel


My husband, Peter, and I ran the Railway as it was known in 1976 for 6 1/2 years we have many happy tales to tell as the Dockers Club opened in the old Sharpness Hotel and a lot of the trade was taken up by them.  We did keep a lot of the locals but the main part of the trade was from off the docks which coming from the Midlands was all very new to us but how interesting it was. Our two teenage daughters say it was one of the best upbringings you could have.
We went to another pub in Swindon.  Whitbreads put a relief manager in for a few weeks then a couple from Cashes Green took over but they did't last very long. It was then sold to a man from over the Forrest of Dean who did a lot of work on it and it turned into a Nursing Home.  It is now been used as offices for a Water Company.
