I was going to write a good review, until after visiting on the 25th January when both myself and my partner heard a conversation between your staff and customers at the next table regarding how they would receive 50% discount on there meal even though they hadn't pre booked a table completely to the shock of the customers themselves ??...

A group of friends met here for dinner on Wednesday and it was perfect. The atmosphere was really bouncing and in an old characterful building like this it just makes the evening. We went because lots of the group were steak lovers and the were simply superb. The Porterhouse that had been recommended, was a prime piece of meat that... More

Went here for my birthday. Firstly let me say that we had a great time. But why don't the management take notice of online reviews?. All the negative reviews are similar and so easy to rectify with good management. First the food. Beautiful lamb shank, menu says it comes with root veg. All I could find were one small piece...

Well I had a fantastic black pudding eggs Benedict starter. .then enjoyed little else. My Porterhouse steak, allegedly their premium steak, was almost inedible. Full of fat, gristle, coveted in thick black charcoal (it was cooked RARE!)...what meat there was was very VERY chewy and with little flavour. Hugely disappointed given how the menu/staff bug this dish up. The service... More

First and last time! I group of eight of us went for late lunch and every single dish was disappointing. Can't understand how a pub hasn't got any salad in the kitchen or a salad on the menu. The service is very slow and we waited almost an hour to get our food. Half of tge the table ordered burgers... More

During Jan the Rose and Crown are running a 50% discount on food promotion. 50% off some of the beat steaks that I have ever had...is......AMAZING Great service, excellent wine advice. / selection and exquisitely cook steaks make this one of my favourite restaurants in Knutsford. Go, let the staff pamper you and enjoy. Can't wait to go back.

The food at this pub really is excellent. We have eaten here a number of times both as a couple and with large groups of friends. The service is always impeccable and food delicious. The cosy atmosphere adds to the experience especially in winter. Would highly recommend.

The traction control on your car started life as a cutting edge piece of kit in the Williams Formula 1 car that Nigel Mansell won his 1992 World Championship in. And then, as in fashion, and sadly, food, the bespoke innovation moves off the F1 paddock, or the Paris catwalk, or out from the Michelin starred kitchens to be distributed... More
