After checking into our holiday home, we were looking for a nearby restaurant that could fit in a party of four on Saturday night of the May Bank Holiday weekend. After a couple of "sorry, fully booked" phone calls, a helpful lady at the Rose and Crown said that she could fit us in at 8:15. We drove over without... More

We spent three nights at the Rose & Crown and dined in each evening. Danny (the chef) and Henri were the most amazing hosts. They were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Danny's cooking is way above the standard pub fare and at a very reasonable price. The accommodation was fine and, for the price, excellent value. It... More

A great location to meet with family and so much to do in the locality. Very friendly hosts who own this family orientated pub restaurant with good value BnB. Extensive quality menu at terrific value, and wide range of drinks. Polite staff and comfortable rooms. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and look forward to the next time, already booked.

This was a trip to Derbyshire with no prior knowledge of The Rose and Crown. What a treat! It's more of a "Restaurant with Rooms" - the food is the absolute highlight of this place. But the rooms are good - warm, well supplied with drinks and biscuits - and the welcome from Danny was excellent. We'd definitely like to... More

We have stayed at The Rose and Crown umpteen times - each time has been pure pleasure for lots of reasons! The rooms are warm and welcoming with tea/coffee facilities and biscuits, lovely crisp white bedding and towels, a hairdryer, television ...... everything you may require for a night or two away. We were made most welcome and nothing was... More

We don't live near the Rose Crown in Middle Mayfield but this is becoming an annual Anniversary now...just can't get better food anywhere...all made fresh the same day by Danny and Henrietta. We dropped in from Warrington Cheshire and stopped over on our way to Dorchester...bit of a detour but worth it. Scrumptious food and great company yum yum !... More

We attempted to book a night here and were pleased there was availability. However when they discovered we had a child, a 10 month old to be precise, we were advised they would not accept our booking. I was told that in case our baby woke up the other guests they could not accommodate us. I am so upset by... More
