The Rose n a Bowl has always been a firm family favourite. Excellent cavery and great value for money, what more can you ask for. It knocks the socks off the carvery chains!

This is a carvery with buffet style accompaniments. Limited, simple choice, usually roast turkey, beef, ham etc with vegetables, potatoes & yorkshire puddings. Comprehensive choice of desserts. Inclusive, competitive pricing structure, friendly service with good 'pub' atmosphere. Excellent value for money, well worth a visit.

I visit this place regularly with friends and family and to be quite honest it is the best carvery I have ever been to. Always a warm welcome from Jon and meats so tender and juicy it really does beat every roast lunch/dinner place I have ever been. And the only place in Rossendale with good draught largers.

We had friends visiting and planning to go out for lunch so as it is our nearest place, we suggested the Rose n Bowl. Again service was lovely and friendly. The chef, John was happy and helpful. Food was delicious. Had to rate it again.
