Four of us enjoyed a delicious meal in relaxed surroundings, the food came in separate containers so it wasn't piled up on the plate, as we were two coupled, the atmosphere was relaxed with a good balance of attention from the waiter/waitress!

Stayed overnight for a local event. Lovely welcome and nice room let down by an extractor fan completely blocked. This was causing lots of condensation when showering (no bathroom windows) resulting in mould around bath.

We spent one night here and loved it. The room was modern, comfortable, and clean with all the amenities including some biscuits. The pub offers good food for a good price. The staff was very family friendly; they allowed us to take our food to our room, had a high chair set up for breakfast, etc. These things are so... More

Booked Sunday lunch here following a recommendation to celebrate a family birthday. We were disappointed. We waited a long time for main meals and desserts to arrive. For main course a few of us had the beef which was tough, although the roasties and Yorkshire puds were very nice. Vegetables were ok, carrots, cabbage and broccoli which were a little... More

We stayed here on a Friday after a long coastal walk enjoying a well kept pint of Reverend James before an early evening dinner. Dining before 19:00 we qualified for a free bottle of a nice Prosecco. The menu wasn't special but provided a reasonable level of choice, we both had the Smoked Salmon starter followed by a rare fillet... More

Very pleasant two night stay from Thursday to Saturday. Staff very helpful. Bedrooms were fresh and clean. Lovely walk down to coast which is approximately one mile. Breakfast and dinner both excellent with great service by friendly and chatty staff.

We have visited the Rose and Crown a number of times, and when friends recently visited us we booked Sunday lunch for 4. Whilst the meat was of the usual high standard the same could not be said for the vegetables. Whilst I fully understand the rationale in serving "al dente" on this occasion they had most definitely taking this... More

We had dinner there and enjoyed it so much we returned the next evening. Service was very friendly and quick. Prices were reasonable and a very pleasant atmosphere. A good choice of beer and wine. Hope to return sometime.
