Gastronomic delights!

I feel I must comment about the wonderful food at the Rose and Crown - the menu is wide and varied so that there are choices for everyone. It is difficult to decide as so much is appealing, and the dish invariably exceeds ones anticipation. Portions are generous and the waiting staff are keen to... read more

We stayed at this delightful B and B in this fantastic area and ended up eating there all three nights. A husband and wife team with Danny overseeing the kitchen and Henrietta the front of house. They and all the staff couldn't have been friendlier. The food is to die for. The very varied menu will cater for all tastes... More

We have visited the Rose and Crown many times for a meal. Danny is a fantastic chef and the food is always superb and cooked to perfection. The staff at The Rose and Crown are excellent, nothing too much trouble, friendly and efficient. Danny and Henrietta run a fantastic establishment and if you haven't visited yet then you should as...

The Rose and Crown is a delightful B&B we discovered on a recent visit to the Dales and Alton Towers. The owners Danny and Henrietta are very warm and welcoming. The pub is very cosy. We stayed in a family room with a bunkbed, single and double bed which was very clean and tidy and reasonably priced and had an... More

Disliked nothing. We were given the name of this place by a policeman we stopped en route. Didn't know what to expect but were most pleasantly surprised and much pleased. Good food and fine hospitality.

We were looking for the Well Dressing in Mayfield, and were recommended The Rose and Crown for lunch. There are too many "look like" pubs, which aren't, what we wanted was old style pub grub and hospitality. And we got it. All four of us had the pie, which was wonderful. The veg was especially commented on as it was... More

Whilst staying nearby on holiday we stumbled upon this gem. My husband and I both chose from the specials board. I had the fish pie and my husband had the sea bass, both of which were delicious and we couldn't fault anything. If we lived here this would definitely be our local.

My wife and I stumbled across this place while on a trip to nearby Alton Towers. The welcome, services and especially the food were all wonderful and it was a great location for the themepark too. If we lived nearer, I would happily visit often just to dine - but sadly it is too far. An annual visit is definately... More

A work colleague turned 60 this weekend so us girls in the office got together & took her for a meal at the Rose & Crown. Meal was fantastic & well worth the money. Great service & lovely surroundings. Definitely recommend a visit & possibly book if going at a weekend as can get very busy.
