Where can I find an evening menu for the hotel, or is the recommendation to eat out locally?
Not sure about the menu but their are plenty of options locally, there are some pubs within walking distance, the john Gilbert, the Bridgewater or the Barton Arms or the newly refurbished Worsley Old Hall. Or for restaurants there is the Tung Fong for Chinese, Ambiente tapas restaurant (quite pricey) or the new Georges restaurant (formally known as the Milan) all within walking distance. I would skip the Novotel restaurant if I were you, plenty of great option there.
Thank you for the update. Really appreciate it. It is so much better to know that a hotel is not the only place to eat locally.
