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

This restaurant is roomy yet not fussy in its decor, with some interesting historical photos displayed. We very much enjoyed our mains and desserts. We had steak and chicken, ample portions, well cooked and well presented (but no custard possible with Bakewell tart!) Service was quietly friendly and prompt. There is ample parking, it is on a main road from... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your meals so much and will pass on your positive comments about the service to our staff. When we bought the pub almost 10 years ago we were given lots of small black and white photographs by an elderly neighbour who then told us the history... More

We had dinner last light and have to say the food was really amazing, meat balls were to die for, Presecco raspberry jelly is a must try and worth winning an award. We had dinner in other local gastro-pub and the Rose and Crown was miles ahead for quality and choice. Thank you to all the staff.

We didn't choose this pub initially because they don't allow dogs, but went on the last night of our holiday and we're really glad we did! We reserved a table and I have to say the welcome was a little ropey for a restaurant that accepts reservations, though fine for a pub. There were only two people serving and they... More

Went for a rare weekday lunch out. Friendly staff, made to feel very welcome. Good menu, many things I could have chosen and all more imaginative than the standard pub fare. The fish pie was one of the best I have had, a daily special. My wife's scampi off the lunch menu was plentiful and well cooked. The Pedigree was... More
