This hotel has gone into receivership and is closed. It is a great shame as it is a beautiful building and housed the Rugby league museum. It would take a huge amount to bring it up to standard as it has been long neglected.

We came here for the Sunday 3 course menu, which is a bargain on the face of it at £10.95

When we arrived there were no staff in the dining room, and we had to go and collar someone in order to be seated and sadly the service didn't improve once we had a table. Although orders were taken briskly, our drinks took ages to arrive. Although this did give us plenty of time to pick our starters and mains, so not a crisis, just a bit annoying.

The menu was really promising - plenty of options and variety in all three courses, and able to cater for vegetarians and meat-eaters. The starters were pretty good - I had a really tasty warm black pudding & bacon salad, the soup looked and smelled good, as did the garlic mushrooms. The main courses were more average - the roast beef was a little dry around the ages, and turned up on a plate with a very stodgy yorkshire pudding and a small puddle of gravy. The plates themselves were also not brilliantly clean, with one of us having to send the plate back to be changed. The veggies had a mushroom and spinach frittata which looked quite heavy going, and the dishes of vegetables and roast potatoes were not particularly generous. As well as dirty plates, we also had to wait over 10 minutes before a waitress passed by that we could ask for condiments - it's not much good getting a big pot of horseradish or mustard when you've pretty much finished eating!
Like the starters, the puddings were actually quite good, especially the warm chocolate brownie, but at the end of the meal there was another let down as we had to hunt down a waitress to get the bill and pay.

Overall, for the price it's not bad but don't pop in if you're dashing for a train! I also couldn't recommend for a date or special occasion - partly due to service, which is basic; partly due to the food, which is inexpensive but nothing exceptional; mostly however to the state of the dining room. The ceiling is in a bad state, with evidence of leaking pipes form the accommodation above tracking across the whole room and the whole hotel looked a little tired to be honest.

I wouldn't go back until I've tried the Sunday dinner in a couple of the other local places first, as it certainly wasn't the best Sunday roast I've ever had, but at the same time you can't really argue with 3 courses for £10.95

Six of us called Sunday afternoon for late Sunday lunch, had a drink in the bar first and should have taken it as a sign when the barman said they had run out of ice and had to go to the cellar to restock one of the beers we wanted. We went through to the restaurant to find the barman was also the restaurant waiter - we jokingly hoped he wasn't also the chef! He was very friendly and helpful and looked slightly embarrased when he told us one of the things we ordered wasn't available. When the food eventually came (around 35 minutes for the starters and even longer between courses) it was fine. It tasted fresh but there was no bread with the prawn cocktail and the promised bread basket never arrived. Our mains were very nice and the vegetables cooked to perfection as were the deserts. The meal was excellent value - 3 courses for around £10 just much too slow.

Staff are very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent. Would highly recommend. Yes the building is old but that's part of the charm and onbience.
