We stayed here on the way from the South Coast to Wales. We were late arriving (m25 traffic!) but the staff couldn't have been more accommodating and prepared lovely food and didn't make us feel rushed to move up to our room. We stayed in room 7 (king) and it was spacious, clean and comfortable. Bathroom was 1st class and... More

A lovely pub at reasonable rates for staying overnight. Very helpful staff who couldn't have been more helpful with our dog and baby. Great walks nearby and nice quiet village. Lovely dinner including moules marinieres with chips - delicious. (Seafood night on Fridays) Very reasonable overall and charming pub

Just back from an overnight stay at the Rose and Crown, we had our evening meal there with a party of 10 although only we were staying over. Our meals were excellent, can recommend the steak and pepper sauce! One of our party was disappointed in the soup and on mentioning this the management said we would not be charged... More

We have visited for food and drinks three times in the last few months. These were our first visits for several years - going back 15 years this was an excellent pub/restaurant but I understand the management has changed a number of times over the last few years. Each of our visits followed a similar pattern - the food and... More

We were passing looking for a nice pub to have a nice Sunday lunch. This appeared to fit the bill, and the staff were very obliging in booking us in. We both ordered the £12 roast, one beef and one turkey. The food came within a reasonable time, but without the promised Yorkshire Puddings. We asked and were told that... More

The helpful and friendly waiting staff and very good chef here seem to be dealing with the lack of effective management from above. The evening meal was excellent but the breakfast was paltry with only some packets of cereal and some toast with tea/coffee, and some fruit juice when we asked for it. The packed lunch, which we had ordered... More

I stayed 1 night with a friend at Rose and Crown. The bartender was really nice and helpful and went above and beyond for us. The room was neat and clean and had an attached bathroom. Breakfast was set up and very nice, toast and cereal... we were the only guests on a Monday night. The only constructive things I... More

First time back here after new ownership. First impressions ok. Taken to our table and seated however waited 10minutes for a menu and drinks order. Starter delivered which was nice but missing a key ingredient which was part of the dish. Main course also very nice. I would certainly recommend the chef. Service on the other hand, what an absolute... More

This was my third visit after the recent change of management. The first visit was just after the opening, so a bit if ineptness was to be expected. Everything was new and processes clearly not sorted out yet. Fair enough. The second visit was much better. Older, efficient serving staff, really good food with one of the better steaks I've...
