The food reflects the great expertise, experience and flair of the owner chef. The menu keeps its favourites for the regulars, but also changes often and there are specials too. The fish is always fresh and hits a level of sophistication you might not have expected, but you will be glad you tried it. The pork loin is incredibly moist... More

Use the restaurant and pub for a lunch after a great walk though the nearby countryside. There were 25 of us in the group and Danny the owner made us all welcome and provided us all with a superb lunch. The staff were helpful and attentive and overall made the lunch go very smoothly. Overall, great service, great food and... More

As thSaturday night so one might expect some pressure in the kitchen, particularly as the place was full. Not so, a welcome from the moment we walked in and food which was competently cooked and presented. Mussels cooked to perfection as a starter, venison pie with juniper berries a treat, accompanied by celeriac mash and parsnips. My wife enjoyed Salmon... More

We decided to have our Group Christmas meal at the Rose and Crown this year. How glad I am that we chose this Pub. The presentation and cooking of the food was exceptional, the service and staff were first class. We will certainly be returning here for our next meal out.

Wanted a pub local to Ashbourne and found this one on Trip Advisor. We knew that being the Sunday before Christmas it would be busy but we managed to get a lunchtime table. We received a lovely warm welcome and were not rushed, even though they were busy. The choice of menu was extensive but we eventually decided on deep... More

Went for a quiet drink on a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed with pre-Christmas diners. We managed to get a couple of seats at the bar and enjoyed a couple of bottles of very nice Pinotage that was reasonably priced. Would definitely go again.

We visited this pub for lunch during a day trip to Derbyshire because it had received such positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed and would thoroughly recommend the pub to anyone travelling in the area. The pub was beautifully decorated for Christmas and presented a welcoming atmosphere as soon as you opened the door. The menu was... More

Wished I'd discovered this little gem sooner, originally took my walking group here after a very wet walk and had a superb lunch. Came back for a birthday celebration for my daughter over lunchtime and was equally impressed. Just been back again for dinner and still the quality is as good, very very impressed.
