Good food and service in a relaxed atmosphere

We found the quality of the Rose and Crown's steaks to be very good, there is a decent choice of wines and the service was fine. By Knutsford standards the prices are not over-cooked but "par" for the town. We found service a little slow at first but by the time dessert arrived normal speed had... read more

I went to the Rose & Crown with some colleagues for a meal, we had a wonderful time! The ham-hock pie and fillet steaks brought our table to silence which really takes some doing! Everything was cooked to perfection, beautifully seasoned, and all the staff were very friendly. The service was attentive without being intrusive. A perfect evening thanks to... More

We stayed here for one night for a wedding, and was not overly impressed. Although the room was lovely and clean it was also very noisy as we were at the back. Also we was above the kitchen and the door banged non stop with the waitresses going in and out constantly with food which made an afternoon nap impossible.... More

When arriving today i thought it would be a good idea to try the lunch menu. Upon arrival i was stood at the front desk for 10 minutes before being seen too even though plenty of staff were walking around and even past us! Once seated i was handed 3 piece of A4 paper which was supposively a menu, once... More

Went last night for a regular meal with friends, the place was buzzing from the off. Fortunately we had pre booked a table in one of the booth. All being meat eaters we were spoilt for choice, but as usual choice one of their gorgeous steaks. You could have cut it with a folk. Kicking back and enjoying the very... More

Came off the motorway to grab a bite to eat, and finding this gastropub was definitely worth it. My other half had, I quote, his "best pie of the year", and my hanging skewers were delicious. It was a shame we needed to get back on the road, so only had mains. Also to note, a lovely house pinot grigio... More

Came across this place while staying at cottons spa hotel, decided to go into knutsford for a meal for a birthday treat. We hadn't booked anywhere prior so was just hoping to see availability. We called in to the rose and crown thinking it was just a bar and decided to dine as well. The food was amazing, for starters... More

My manager arranged for us to have a dinner meeting here and I must say I was very impressed. Nothing was too much trouble, we weren't even rushed to take our table. The waitress was very good and delivered our food promptly. The food was obviously all freshly cooked and to a very high standard. I would definitely recommend anyone... More

Lovely setting and terrace in a convenient part of the town. The beer on offer is good and varied, and the 'happy hour's' from 4-7pm see the prices go to a reasonable level. Food was farily average, and despite us only having the lunch menu it wasnt as good as we expected. There seems to be a bit more organisation... More
