We called in for a beer and bite to eat after a cold and blustery walk in Tatton Park. They happily receive dogs, the staff were welcoming, the food delicious and the beers well selected for the time of year.

The staff are very good and have saved my review having only one star. The bar area is very nice,open fires rustic look - but after that it's down hill. £95 is not cheap, especially when there is no heating in the bathroom, thin walls, and one small bottle of shower get to share. In the morning you will be... More

After a dog walk in the nearby Tatton park, I met with some friends for a pub lunch. My friends are local and decided on The Rose N Crown Chophouse as we could bring the dog. What a great idea it was too. We sat in the bar area beside the roaring fire. Our black lab kali was made to... More

I think someone might have forgotten to order supplies the day before we visited. I ordered a beer at the bar, only to find it had run out. I then tried to order some food, only to find that a number of items on the menu had also run out. It seemed almost unbelievable that, at 3pm in the afternoon,... More

The Rose and Crown is a beautiful old pub that has been lovingly restored and conscientiously updated. The vibe is exactly what you're looking for if you're wanting a quick lunch, having a special party or meeting a certain someone. There is a warm and friendly atmosphere and very attentive staff. The farm-fresh, primarily local food is delicious and innovative... More

Stayed here a few months ago. I have family who live near by and after them having a full house I decided a warm bed was better than a cold floor. Warm welcome and still go in for drinks and food. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area

We have been to the Rose and Crown many times over many years. Matthew Mooney's stewardship of this wonderful ancient hostelry has enhanced its rich history with a sensitive respect for tradition and a modern appreciation of the discriminating taste of the present day customer. Friday's meal was a birthday celebration made even better by the substantial seasonal discount! We... More

The stay was ok but that was about it. The room was very basic and I could not get hot water in the shower. Food was ok but nothing special. The staff were friendly and helpful but I did leave feeling a little underwhelmed.

Fabulous day in Knutsford walking through Tatton Park working up an appetite for Sunday Lunch at The Rose and Crown. We were not disappointed. Staff were friendly, smart and efficient. We ordered a gorgeous bottle of red wine to compliment the very tasty Roast Beef lunch. The beef was beautifully moist and cooked to perfection. The roast potatoes were crunchy... More
