Had another excellent short stay last evening, including dinner. Staff were friendly and efficient, as usual. I would certainly recommend the Rose and Crown. Breakfast was first class, efficiently served by friendly staff.

My wife and I dined here last Friday. We have been before and the chef always ensures that there is something new on the menu. My hake was cooked perfectly and although I could have done with a slightly bigger portion it was excellent. The good lady went for the ribs in a whisky based glaze. The ribs were huge... More

Very pleasant visit for lunch despite our starters being forgotten and mains being served instead! However apologies accepted, and dishes eaten. The feather steak was cooked well and very tender with no waste, the turkey paupiette again was very appealing and tasted as well as it looked. Both dishes were sufficient in quantity and quality, leaving no regrets as to... More

I booked this hotel for myself and friends for a rugby tour and overall a really good trip. Great welcome, rooms were clean, tidy, great shower and a building with character. Evening meal was good, breakfast similarly. Only blip was being overcharged for each room despite going over this, painstakingly, with the hotel beforehand re room rates only have to... More

This restaurant has always had a good reputation but after our visit this time, it had clearly gone down hill. Food only ok, service dreadful and price over the top expensive. Such a shame that a pub with so much character is losing it's appeal.

Business trip which coincided (unbelievably) with the filming of a wretched programme called TOWIE at the pub. It was packed with orange people. The room was ok but the lights did not work (looked like the previous guest had pinched the bulbs because there were none). The food was expensive (£6 for 4 small calamari rings) and not that good.... More

Poor food (when it eventually arrived - cold and bland), poor service, poor staff attitude, overpriced and, generally a sorry excuse for a "restaurant". Do not bother to waste your time and money, there are other places in Porthcawl where you can get better meals and service

Had a one night stay. The rooms were a little in need of refurbishment, but clean and still perfectly serviceable. Breakfast was excellent. There's quite a pleasant bar and, although real ale is served, it is not to my personal liking, ie Braines which I find to be generally too bland or too dark. Nevertheless, a perfectly good place for... More

My wife booked this location for our brief stay in Wales. The location is just outside Porthcawl, but its quaint as its on a small green. Limited parking, but you can park around the green. There are a small number of rooms, think around 10-11 in total. Despite being over the pub its very quiet The room is quite compact... More
