Seemed a decent JDW pub and better than what I was expecting. Good choice of ales and both staff and customers warm and welcoming. Wasn't looking forward to going in but will definately do so next time I'm in Rotherham.

jdw comment :
"Clifton Park Museum, Rotherham, has a fine collection of locally produced ‘Rockingham ware’. The centrepiece of the display is the magnificent Rhinoceros Vase, the first-ever porcelain vase cast in one piece, which gives this Wetherspoon pub its name".
The Rhino is a modern looking town centre pub, just off all saints square. The main entrance is deceptively small, and leads into a single large room which spreads back a surprisingly long way. The long bar on the left. All the floor area has table seating, for about 150+ at a guess.
We called for lunch this saturday. Whilst not overflowing, the place had a brisk trade. Many elderly folk quietly watching the sports on TV. There were also a few families dining. No rowdies.
We ordered from the 2-for-£6.20 menu, along with a pint of Abbot.
A quick count showed there were 12 cask ales on. This surprised me, as it jdws often have 10 pumps, with some not on. The Abbot was in good form.
I got served quite quickly, and the meals arrived in 20-25 mins, which wasn't too bad considering how bust it was. Food was basic but quite acceptable for the price.
verdict :
pleasant spot for a quick, cheap lunch and good ale. All at a very good price.
a 7 from me, which is quite good as I tend to reserve further points for historic pubs,etc.

Went in to watch the FA cup semi and because of the Spring Beer Festival.

Not all of the pumps had Real Ale on although the choices were quite good. Unfortunately whoever is in charge doesn't seem to appreciate that Real Ales have different tastes and flavours; they don't need to be served chilled as this destroys the tastes.

I tried to let my pint 'warm' a little but this didn't really make the taste improve so I took my custom elsewhere.

So all in all, if you're after Real Ale give this place a swerve. If however, your preference is for industrially produced, fizzy, tasteless cheap alcohol then this 'spoons will tick your boxes.
