At one point, several years ago, the Rose and Crown in Sutton was one of our favourite restaurants. We'd not been back for a while after a couple of reasonable but expensive meals. When we heard they had a new chef, we thought we'd give it another try, and are delighted that we did. The lunch menu is a good... More

Only negative was fish batter was slightly under cooked. Had to leave part. Staff friendly. Don't forget to mention lunch discount advertised on their website at the start. 15 %... More

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon just after 3pm wanting a nice meal before heading home. The manager informed us that they in fact stopped serving food at 3pm but immediately said they could accommodate us no problem and let the kitchen know that we were there. The food was beautiful, the atmosphere perfect and the staff spot on. A... More

I don't know what's happened at the rose and crown but I have been disappointed the last two times I have been. My fish and chips were overcooked and were very dry the time before my monkfish was overcooked and cold. This is such a shame as we have been numerous times and the food was fantastic .

I'm so sorry to hear you were disappointed with your meal on the 18th, however we always make a point of asking our customers 5 minutes into the meal, whether or not they are satisfied, this giving the customer then the option of complaining if they happen to be disappointed. As I explained on the day, if any customer has... More

We were on our way to Helmsley and as we drove by, thought we would see if this place had any room for Sunday Lunch and would allow us to take the dogs in. Refreshingly they were more than happy for us to take the dogs in and eat in the bar area. We parked the cars and went into... More

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews and needed somewhere not too far away we thought we would book Sunday lunch at the Rose and Crown. Are we glad we did......a beautiful Sunday lunch.

Came here on a Friday evening for a meal. Service was excellent. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere and feel of the place was just lovely. Nice and quiet, great decor, candles and cushioned seats. Prices are very reasonable for the overall experience. We received complimentary soup and homemade bread before out meal.
