Considering there was a Christmas party on, service was good if not overly attentive. Pedigree beer excellent. Food generally was good and reasonable portion sizes, let down slightly by peas which had clearly been microwaved for too long. Reasonable price and we will be returning in the future.

This was the 2nd time I'd visited the Rose & Crown, the first being in 2011, and I was pleased to find that it has maintained the very high standards I found on the first visit. The atmosphere is relaxed and unhurried and yet our food arrived in good time. The style is very much 'home-cooked' with good but unfussy... More

A perfect find. Affordable and friendly family pub. What a jewel. Great value for money and attentive service. If I lived locally then it would become my fav weekly Sunday lunch stop. Highly recommended.

A charming country pub with one of the best menus for lunch I've seen. I'm not going to list the meals but will say that the food was well prepared. Authentic and very tasty. The atmosphere was pleasant even though it was a quiet lunchtime. I would strongly recommend the food and the ambience at the Rose and Crown.

I have eaten at the Rose & Crown on several occasions now and have always found the food to be wonderful. There are no weird combinations of ingredients, nothing 'cooked three ways' or 'fusion', just great ingredients perfectly cooked. Any restaurant that can get me to drive 35 miles for Sunday lunch has got to be good and the Rose... More

We ate here for three nights running and we're not disappointed. There was a great choice each evening and it was good to see so many tables taken midweek in November. Worth booking to avoid disappointment.

Good quality of food at very reasonable price. My rump steak was one of the best I have tasted. Nicely trimmed, precisely cooked and tender to eat. The house wine is is better than most and the brandysnap fruit basket with home made ice cream was a real treat.

Visited on a whim after a busy day at Alton Towers. It was 'grill night' so we got BOGOF on steaks which was fantastic value for money. Steaks were cooked to perfection and were absolutely delicious! Served with ample chips, peas and tomato. We also had the cookie dough chocolate thingy for pudding which is easily big enough to share... More

The surprise is the quality of the food. The specials would not be out of place in a good quality restaurant. Can you believe home made ice cream? A real find and we were lucky to get in in what turned out to be a quiet night. Beer selection for a real ale fan like myself was adequate, but the... More

Service was quite slow. My food was good, my partner's less so, why do mashed potato with gammon ? The pub needs some renovation sadly, ok for a mid-week meal but not for Saturday night.

Dear David and Lyn, Thank you for your review and for your feedback, which is always welcomed. We agree that the pub needs some renovation; in fact this is being addressed as I type! We are currently undergoing some building work and as part of this we are redecorating the interior of the pub. A new external door was fitted... More
