The staff were very welcoming and helpful. My friend and I spent several hours here discussing work and we were never made to feel that we had to rush off. We ordered several drinks and some food. The food was very nicely presented and tasted delicious; I just felt the portion size was a little on the small size for... More

I have been to the Rose and Crown on a couple of occasions over the last few months. Each time the service has been great and the staff are very helpful. The food has been absolutely lovely and it is by far my favourite place to eat in Knutsford.

We visited here on Saturday and to say I was starving was an understatement. There was nothing else for it but a huge steak and they don't come more tasty and succulent than this. Followed by creme brûlée, job done. the service was the right balance between attentive and not mythering you every two minutes. Good honest food served right,... More

I have been here a few times and every time has been spot on. After a friendly welcome we sat in the window and immediately had our drinks order taken by our waitress. Shortly after we ordered a few items off the menu both starters and mains. The ribs were succulent and I could have kept eating them all night!... More

A group of friends had a great day out in Knutsford recently, the highlight being lunch on the terrace at the Rose & Crown. Starting with Prosecco (on draft!), we enjoyed the afternoon sunshine, then tucked into some very tender Porterhouse steaks....magnificent.

Visted with my girlfriend for a Sunday lunch as we've been in for a few drinks and seems quite cosy, also we "heard the food was good" Well on arriving we orderd drinks at the bar then took a seat with a waiter who seemed very shy and possibly hungover! As we sat down a young girl with obviously no... More

A 17th century pub setting in a rural village. I tried the ham hock and black pudding pie with mash and carrots. It was possibly the best pub pie I have had with excellent pastry and beautiful mash. The carrots were spot on. Everything was seasoned well. Other dishes included a ribs and a pulled pork burger both with excellent... More

It scored only 2 out of 5 and that was due to the great staff that work there. The food from the start was a non starter. We got the bread which was stodgy, not warm like most places and then it got worse. I got the chicken skewers which was presented in such a way you could tell the... More

Never having been to Knutsford before, I thought I would try out a few ale houses. After a pint in the Cross Keys (excellent pub) I ventured in here. I had to wait ages as the barman was serving some girls a jug of Pimms, and he took forever, had to change bottles as he finished one, was asking the... More
