Lovely place. It's a pub, but with great food and offering additional touches such as free home made bread and butter, a salad bar, and separate bowls of homemade chips and vegies that sets it apart from others. I had the mussels in cider (which were drowned in about half a pint of double cream) whilst others on my table...

I have eaten here twice in the past month, and both times have been amazing. I had the gammon on the first visit - definitely recommend, best gammon I've ever had. There was plenty of veg and chips for my partner and I to share. I had a brownie for pudding, which was delicious. Salad bar is a nice touch,...

Pub was very full, but they were keen to accommodate us. The pub had a lovely feel to it. The meal was excellent value, particularly as it included a free salad bar. We will definitely be back again. Can't believe I haven't been here before!

I live around 20 miles from the Rose & Crown, it is always well worth the trip to go and eat in this pub. I have never stayed, but if (as I expect ) the experience is as good as their food and cheerful service l would have no hesitation in recommending a stay there.

Fairly good pub grub with good choice of menu and specials. Place was very busy at lunch time. The lady serving food was also serving at the bar as I think they were one short on staff. She was rushed but we were in no hurry. I read a previous review on TA that said the staff were not polite,...

We love going to the Rose and Crown. The food is just wonderful, and the portions are very generous; so much so that on our last two visits we only had a main course. Last time we went, my partner went for the traditional steak and chips meal and I had the Stilton chicken. Both were excellent. My chicken was...

A real pub with real ale, and real food. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort. Good selection of home cooked food from the extensive menu, all washed down with a selection of beers and ales. Would definitely visit again.

This was always the little gem that we would drive out to for lunch as a treat. Always dependable - good food with VERY good portions and a very reasonably priced. However, something has changed. We visited a month ago and detected that things were different. Today we returned and found it was certainly different. Still VERY big portions -...

We were attending a wedding at Old Oak Farm, around 6 miles away. Taxis are rare and quite expensive, so I phoned asking if we could check in after it had finished at around 11.30pm which he was absolutely fine about. The taxi driver ended up taking us to the wrong Rose and Crown - 30 mins away from this...

The food is to die for. A little on the expensive side, but definitely worth it. Would recommend to anyone for a special meal. There is a nice outside area, the décor is good and the staff are very friendly.
