Visited with my family on Saturday evening for dinner. The menu was varied, large and pretty well priced. We opted not to have starters and went straight in for mains. We were brought some bread and butter whilst we waited which was a nice touch. I had a steak which was tender and tasty, I ordered medium rare which it... More

We have not eaten here for a long time. The pub was dark and you stuck to the tables. Visited last night to find a huge transformation. The place has undergone some renovations which leaves the pub open and airy, lighter decor brightens up the room. The menu is just gorgeous with so many choices. Excellent staff, quick service really... More

On a special birthday weekend, we had a warm welcome at the Rose &Crown. More importantly, the meals were up their appetising best. As so often in the past, I found the steak and ale pie very tasty, with an ample helping. The accompanying chips owed nothing to a plastic bag, and everything to good home cooking. My wife thoroughly... More

A little out of the way from our B&B, but definitely worth the trip. The food was delicious, the people working there were great, the bill very reasonable. If you are visiting the area, don't hesitate to try the Rose and Crown, there is something for every taste from great seafood dishes to fantastic vegetables!

My wife and I called in here on the way back from a local flying experience we had been to. We called here purely by chance and had a very tasty meal of Hunters Chicken with some excellent beer ,lager and wine. The landlord was very chatty, courteous and welcoming and the place itself was very comfortable and clean including... More
