We live fairly locally, but this is not our local pub. The food and service never disappoints. The menu is varied and easy to choose from The staff are friendly. Good place to go for a special occasion Reasonably priced Decent portions Excellent 'real' home cooking with great quality local ingredients

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

I have eaten here many times and have never had a bad meal. The food is top quality, not fussy and brilliantly cooked with excellent though often simple combinations of ingredients. Prices too are very reasonable for this standard of fare and the premises are well kept. Where the place does disappoint a little is the "front of house experience".... More
