This is the only pub/eating place that we saw in the centre of the small but perfectly formed village of Stelling Minnis. A choice of 3 well kept real ales was available on the nights we visited, and the meals the four of us had were good and reasonably priced. There is an outdoor area for the good weather, and...

We visited this pub twice whilst staying in the area. Both times we were very impressed by the service and the lovely food we had. The menu is extensive and the food beautifully prepared. Very generous portions too. The second night there was an excellent jazz band which really made our evening very special. The landlord and the waitresses were... More

A warm welcome and good food make this pub a real favourite of mine. On our last visit I had the chicken and leek pie. The food comes in generous portions and the landlord cheerfully wrapped my new potatoes in silver foil to take home as the size of the portions had defeated me. The Rose and Crown is a... More

After an 8 mile walk I was gasping for a beer and some lunch, the pub was able to satisfy one of these requirements however I was most disappointed Sunday lunch was not being served after 2.30 on Sunday lunchtime!

We travelled out here today for a birthday lunch for 4 of us. We were welcomed by Stuart the owner who we had not seen for a few months due to work commitments. We sat in the conservatory and ordered 4 roast dinners , the quantity and quality of the food as always was fantastic . We had a pudding... More

We had reserved a table for sunday lunch. We arrived very early but it wasnt a problem. We were served quickly and the food came quickly. A good meat portion and plenty of fresh vegetables, all nice and hot. A home made crumble and custard followed. Good value for money

Went today with a group of Ramblers. When we arrived the pub was very busy but they had reserved a table for us and the food arrived promptly, was well-presented and well-received. The atmosphere with the fire, good beer and such friendly, helpful service made it very difficult to leave to continue the walk. Would definitely recommend this pub.

Great beer. Great food. Welcoming landlord and staff. Table reserved for 7 of us just a day after New Year. Everything on menu available. Fresh cooked and well served. Very busy pub - that is a clue. Not a cold empty barn. Have been once before. Will be going more often now.

For the last 2 years we have held a family meal at the Rose & Crown for around 30 people. The food is fantastic, the service brilliant and the atmosphere really lovely. The whole family had a great evening no moans and no complaints. I can't recommend this family pub highly enough. Thanks again from the Redfearn Family
