Our History

The Railway Hotel is the third oldest hotel in Peterborough, having been built in 1891, opening on the 24th December. W Britten, Licensee. The building was described at the time as palatial, with the Copula Tower on the roof being a feature. The hotel has played host to Governors and high ranking officials during its 125 year history. In 1949 a murder/suicide in the hotel was big news at the time.

      Proper pub with better than average pub food. Steak cooked as requested with good chips and fresh salad. My wife ate the chicken schnitzel which was good. Worth the stop.

  •   Stopped here overnight. Was given a tip to eat at the hotel. We both had chicken schnitzel with salad bar. The best meal we have had in a very long time. Great service and food was amazing.

      Schnitzel with green peppercorn sauce was one of the best I’ve had. Panko crumb shinty, plus a supreme pizza came in at $36, extremely good value! Ambience is old school charm. Nice bar staff too
