Pub-goers said their final goodbyes as The Railway closed for the final time last Sunday after nearly 24 years of service.

Located on the corners of Upper Richmond Road and Putney High Street, the gastropub announced on Facebook that September 10 would be their last day after first opening on December 21, 1993.

The site which the JD Wetherspoon branch occupied is said to have now been sublet to Revolution Bars.

Kyle Knight, a postgraduate student at Roehampton University, was “surprised and shocked” when he found out it was being closed.

He said: “My best memories would be those Wednesday nights I would visit before going to Fez Club [in Upper Richmond Road], or something similar, for cheap drinks.

“Especially when they used that toy train to deliver shots around the bar.”

When asked what it meant to see it close, the 23-year-old added: “[I am] kind of glad as a Revolution is going to pop up there, which is better in my opinion.”
