We went to the Rose and Crown for dinner with friends one weekday evening. There appeared to be only two waiting staff, at least one of whom spoke little or no English, and the landlady-cum-manager seemed just plain 'off'. We weren't shown to our table, but told, 'You can sit over there', which really set the tone. Waited about 15... More

We were given a Gift Meal Voucher for our wedding Aniversary by some good friends. My wife liked the advert for The Rose and Crown, The Pub is a bit out in the sticks but easily found by Sat Nav. We decided to take advantage of the B and B offered at this place. What a great decision the room... More

I stayed for one night whilst on business. It is a bit rural but as it was hot and sunny when I arrived so after booking in, the lovely lady gave me directions to the wetlands centre and I had a pleasant walk. The restuarant starts serving food at 6.30pm until 9pm and it was honestly the best food I... More

I booked last minute via late rooms. After driving what seemed to be an absolute age through what I can only describe as a rally cross stage I found the Rose and Crown. From the outside I thought " oh god what have I booked in too" (it was raining and fairly drab weather wise) but on walking in I... More

Stayed in the Rose & Crown on Saturday night-had stayed several times before. 7 of us had dinner on Sat eve & it was excellent- huge quantities, plenty of choice & capable & friendly service. Breakfast next morning was excellent. I stayed in room 1, which has a bathroom with bath. Good standard of accommodation & comfy bed. All told,... More

We hadn't visited this pub since it was gutted by fire approximately eight years ago....prior to that we had visited on a number of occasions. The transformation is a delight and the use of mismatched chairs (they look great) and beautiful light beams adds a touch of warmth to a lovely interior. What made it particularly inviting was the charm... More

Been here before . Difficult to find with a 62 year old brain and no sat nav. Glad I did because room is the same as before and very acceptable. Food as room is still good. However the servings are too large for me. Snake hips alas I am not; but the very good veg were largely wasted. I think... More

We stopped here for a night to break a long journey - the pub is approx 15 mins from the M5 and well worth the drive. The bar was bustling and busy with a mixture of locals and visitors. Welcoming staff quickly showed us to our connecting two bedrooms which were well presented, nicely decorated and equipped (free WiFi). Carpet... More

Booked in for two nights on business. Was allocated a downstairs room that had a kitchen. Overall the staff were helpful and friendly and the fish was the best I have tasted for a long time. The room was the issue, It had the impression that it was a working part of the catering side with a bed. Shelves with... More

MrRickyTaunton, Owner at The Rose and Crown, responded to this review

We are sorry that you had an uncomfortable stay with us. You where staying in our ground room only because we where full upstairs, so we don't normally offer this to guests, but your booking was short notice and your other colleagues where already booked in, I hope you can feel you can stay with us again and we will...
