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

My partner and I popped in the Rose and Crown for lunch last Saturday and we were both very impressed with both the hosts' conviviality and the quality of the food. I had the meatballs, and quite frankly they were the best I've ever had - clearly (and expertly) home made, good quality ingredients and all swimming in a hearty... More

Dear James, Many thanks for your wonderful review of the Rose and Crown. It was lovely chatting to you after lunch and are delighted that you enjoyed the food so much. The meatballs are a consistently popular dish and do tend to fly out whenever we have them on the menu! We look forward to seeing you again next time... More

Having frequented this cosy pub restaurant several times over the last three and a half years, am pleased to report another stunning meal, in wonderful surroundings with friendly welcoming staff. We have now sampled most of the varied menu, and have always found the food to be perfectly cooked and presented, at very reasonable prices. If you have the chance... More

Stopped over for a friend's wedding reception, and say with out a doubt that it was the best decision we could have made. After having a search around decided not to go the commercial route of travelodge, and I would stay again. Owner & staff where fantastic, breakfast was spot on to. Also alot cheaper than travelodge.

Had a meal here with friends who lived nearby to the Rose and Crown. The food was very good and the menu was wide ranging too. The food was well presented, tasty and reasonably priced although I would say, I'm my opinion, the pub decor and ambience does not really match the food that they serve. One slight disappointment was... More
