Went for a rare weekday lunch out. Friendly staff, made to feel very welcome. Good menu, many things I could have chosen and all more imaginative than the standard pub fare. The fish pie was one of the best I have had, a daily special. My wife's scampi off the lunch menu was plentiful and well cooked. The Pedigree was... More

Dined here in mid-March during a three day holiday break in the area. Decided on the Rose & Crown after reading the (mainly favourable) reviews from other contributors. We arrived early without a booking but because it was mid-week in early Spring this presented no problem. I ordered a Mixed Grill off the 'Specials Board' whilst my Wife had the... More

The undoubted highlight for me was the steak & ale pie – a generoua portion of rich plentiful tender lean meat in the best shortcrust I have ever tasted. With appropriate veg, absolutely superb and unreservedly recommended. PLUS Welcoming atmosphere. Not a huge menu (that’s good) with limited veggie options but ready willingness to make adjustments to suit. Quality ingredients,... More

We have visited the Rose & Crown just outside Ashbourne about 2 times a year for at least 8 years. The food goes from strength to strength. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. I think this is one of the best restaurants in the area

I visited the Rose and Crown on the basis of a local recommendation and we were so glad we took their advice. I can only echo all the other compliments for the food. Our family enjoyed lamb, duck and I took the tuna steak and all were superb. Each cooked to perfection and provided with carefully devised accompaniments. So good... More
