We decided on the Rose and Crown for Sunday lunch on the off chance - neither of had been there before so we weren't entirely sure what we were going to expect when we got there...
The interior is traditional pub with a good selection of real ales and a fire place - it was busy in both the bar area and the restaurant areas and it was nice to see there were 4 dogs in the bar (very well behaved) as many don't allow dogs inside.
There was a choice of starters and several main courses including roast dinners.
There were the usual soup, tempura prawns but I had an amazing pheasant pate with a homemade cumberland sauce - it came with a warm bread and was lovely.
It was a shame to see the ubiquitous homemade burger on menu - they are becoming boring and I think (hope) they are to the end of their time - but I came out specifically for a roast so I knew exactly what I wanted... and I have to admit it was wonderful. I hate well done beef with a passion, so I was so happy to have a large portion of pink roast beef, lashings of thick meaty gravy, (so thin stingy drizzle here) roast parsnips & potatoes, carrots broccoli & cauliflower cheese - oh & don't forget the yorkshire - I struggled to finish it, in fact my son had the yorkshire pud because I couldn't physically finish it. although how he managed it when he had just finished his huge burger or in this instance pulled pork bap and fries.
My partner had the beef stroganoff - which came with mashed potatoes and veg and finished with sticky toffee pud and custard.
All in all it was a delicious meal. Food and drinks, (3 starters, 3 mains and two desserts) came to just shy of £75 - so well priced too.
What stopped it being 5*s - paper slips on the tables, and it would have been nice to not to see tempura prawns and burgers on the menu - they are too commonplace..
Great food, great service - well recommended and we hope to be back!
