The Rose and Crown is probably one of the loveliest pub/restaurants we have visited. The owners have done an amazing job and it is a pleasure just being in the building. We went for lunch and surprisingly it was fairly quiet. The menu is quite limited but something for most tastes. The steak pie I am told was delicious but... More

Staff, service and food were all fantastic! Hubby ordered a steak which was cooked to perfection and I had the Salmon special which was delicious also, served... More

Went a walk and found this place, didn't expect this at all, absolutely gorgeous place, loads of candles and quirky items and lanterns, heaven for me. Chose the Duck dish, beautifully presented with fresh veg. Ate outside in the gazebo on a warm balmy evening. Unforgettable first evening in Sutton on the Forest. X

This place is a must visit,called in for food on the Friday night. We could have sat down to eat in the beautifully decorated restaurant and chosen food from the fantastic menu on offer, but it was really warm and there was a BBQ out side cooked by 1 of the 6 chefs they have there and the burgers, chips...

I had the mackerel for a starter, followed by the meat pie, which was very filling, but done to perfection, along with carrots,cauliflower and green beans. My wife settled for the chicken, which once again was done to perfection. We did not have a dessert because the main course was so filling.

The place is quirky with a lovely atmosphere. They have a dining area, a bar and lovely outside facilities which on a nice day would be perfect and ideal for families. Staff are polite, friendly and attentive. The Sunday Lunch is delicious, decent portion size and reasonably priced. I highly recommend its a brilliant find and shall be returning.

An excellent evening in late June: as always the welcome was warm and the service was efficient. The menu was interesting and the food itself cooked beautifully. This is high quality dining in a wonderful atmosphere, as good as any of the top class restaurants I have encountered across Europe.

Stayed in Sutton on the Forest at a nearby Inn but they did not do an evening meal on Thursdays. The Rose & Crown was recommended and we were delightfully surprised on entering to find a beautiful and unusual interior, thoughtfully furnished and laid out, and were greeted with enthusiasm by a young charming waitress. The selection of food on... More
