Nice food but needs updating

But it is standard pub grup..fish and chips, sausage and mash etc...ok for informal dining do not expect high end. Staff are excellent.

We visited this lovely village pub the day before mothers day this year. A day that both mine and my partners family could make. My partner phoned to book a table of 8 plus one high chair a few days in advance but the gentleman on the phone said we won't need to book but will pop it in the... More

We were staying as a couple in a nearby hotel/B&B for a Friday-Monday 3 night stay for my husband's birthday. Having had a little wander around Brockenhurst on the Friday afternoon we spotted the Rose and Crown and, due to its extensive menu, decided to eat on Friday evening. All the bar staff and waiters/waitresses we came across were very... More

We visited this pub twice during our recent stay in the New Forest. Both times we were warmly welcomed and invited to try the guest ales and also the cider before making our selections. We didn't eat but the menu looked very inviting and we will definitely try this pub next time we visit. The staff were all really friendly... More

We chose to eat here as it was open all day where other restaurants were closed. We were welcomed by the roaring log fire and the smiles from the bar staff.

Pork or beef were the choices of meat for our carvery. The beef looked so overcooked, the only sane choice was pork. For such a huge joint that they were carving from, it was incredibly dry. There was crackling too, which I'm almost certain were just packet pork scratchings, roasted a bit in the oven. The Yorkshire puddings were oddly... More

What a brilliant trip. Started with a superb buffet meal at the Rose and Crown ( to line the stomach), then on to the minibus to the brewery. Tour by expert staff, followed by numerous tastings of very tasty beers. Then finally back to the pub for a de-briefing! A superbly organised trip, ably supported by the ever attendant staff,...

Started off looking nice inside, however the food is absolutely rubbish! I ordered the pork belly and my partner ordered the burger, with cheese. Our orders came, but no cheese on the burger. We had already paid for the meal at the bar, so we didn't get a refund from that. He could tell that the burger was a frozen... More
