We stayed in the village and visited the pub on 2 separate occasions for dinner and wererent disappointed. The rose and crown is a very traditional Yorkshire pub serving good food and drink with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and seemed genuinely happy to serve us. The pub itself is very old with a roaring... More

It was one of those days I think, I did OK with my meal, but the others in our group were a little miffed, it seems that they had no stock, run out of this that and the other, worse still was the time it took to find out, some time after we'd ordered and then again further choices weren't... More

I went with my family for a relaxing Christmas getaway in the glorious Yorkshire Dales, and that's exactly what I got. Let's be clear - this is a rural country PUB with a hotel. That said, the bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, the beds comfortable, the food FANTASTIC, and the staff super. Yes, the owner is a bit Basil Fawlty-esque,... More

Had dinner here and was amazed at the portion sizes - huge much to my delight. Very well cooked steak with all the trimmings and masses of belly pork with mash and veg. Sticky toffee pudding was delightful also!

We have been to the Rose & Crown for several years and quite like the fact that it has not changed. It is a traditional pub with a great atmosphere and excellent friendly staff. We dont want it to become a trendy modernised bolt hole for individuals who dont appreciate traditional Yorkshire fayre.

Having visited this hotel many years ago, I didn't check Trip advisor before booking as I usually do - and thank goodness as I might not have been so keen to book if I had, which would have meant missing out on one of the best New Year's we've had for some time. From the very beginning (booking over the... More

Hotel is an old coaching inn dating from 15th century. Unfortunately it is extremely tired and decor has not changed from 70's. Bedroom doors didn't fit properly, windows were old sash type that hadn't been cleaned or painted in years. Carpets were all worn and mismatched. Saving grace was the good food and good company. The hotel is in a... More

We had booked a night in one of Yorkshire's oldest inns, the Rose and Crown Inn for late August 2014. Despite, initial expectations, we quickly rated this place very lowly. The Rose and Crown is a potentially wonderful old pub with its sloped floors and traditional log fire and is located in the small village of Bainbridge, in the heart... More

My mother offered to treat her family to Christmas away but didn't want a big hotel with lots of forced entertainment. She chose the Rose and Crown in Bainbridge but after reading some of the previous reviews we wondered if she had made a mistake. However we were made very welcome by the owner and his staff and nothing was... More
