We had an excellent birthday lunch here today. A lovely warm and welcoming place on a cold January day. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had seabass with beer battered king prawns and a steak pie for mains followed by a very light lemon panacotta and a sticky toffe pudding. Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented

Another birthday long weekend at the Rose and Crown. It's our favourite place to stay anywhere. Lovely rooms, outstanding food, wonderful staff and service. It's a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. The wood paneling, roaring fire, low beams, the peace and quiet. It's just so lovely. We visit about 3 times a year and love it every time! Can't recommend... More

We booked two nights including evening meals on the back of Trip Advisor comments and other search engines. The location was a small but typical old English village. We arrived late afternoon to a firendly lady who showed us to our room which was situated outside the main hotel although only a 2 minute walk. Accomodation was very nice, clean... More

we realised on checking diaries that we have been enjoying annual short breaks at the Rose and Crown since 2004, after having initially found it when walking in the area. Once again it was superb, the staff are warm and friendly and the setting is, as commented by a fellow guest 'just perfect' - we have always loved the cosy... More

I reviewed having lunch at this hotel a year ago and all I can say a year on is that the food was again perfect and the efficiency and friendliness of the staff sets a standard that all others should seek to achieve. This is a wonderful little country hotel which is a delight to visit.

Just got back from a most enjoyable evening out at the Rose & Crown. Fabulous restaurant, great menu, very good friendly service. All the courses well cooked with great presentation, good wine list to compliment for all courses. Good selection of malts. Only complaint........they don't crumb down between courses as they used to. Would recommend to go and not just... More

Lovely hotel, good location for walkers and visitors to the area. Very friendly staff, always willing to help and go that extra mile. Cosy bar, great food in both the bar and restaurant. Really comfortable rooms.

We booked a room at the Rose and Crown as a stopover on our way to Scotland. It was slightly more expensive than others in the area but the reviews were great and we were celebrating our wedding anniversary so we booked. The location is beautiful and very quiet. Check in was quick and easy and the room was warm... More

Just a one night stay on the way to Scotland - but so good we will have to return for longer stay. Rooms in courtyard were excellent and parking easy but the real highlight was the "Bar meal" we had in the evening. A chef who understands flavour and balance and produces exceptional courses leading to the best deserts we... More

My wife and I stayed here for a short break, Sunday through to Wednesday. We've stayed several times, and we consider it our bolt hole. The village is picture perfect, quiet, lovely walks and nice people. The rose and crown remains one of our favourite hotels. It's understated, but does great service, great food (most locally sourced), wonderfully comfortable rooms... More
