Good food and fine beers

Nestled close to the foot of the peak district hills, the food I have had has on each of a number of visits been of great quality and cooked to my liking. I can thoroughly recommend the home made pies, various fillings, some familiar favourites and some unusual but all tasty and satisfying. Give... read more

Called in over the August bank holiday weekend just for a snack, there were 4 of us we all had the hot baguette, 3 Scottish steak and one bacon and cheese. The filling on the cheese baguette was not generous and all served with a small portion of salad, the steak was OK but all were served on an under... More

Dear Graeme Many thanks for your review and we are pleased that you liked our new outside seating area. We are indeed in a lovely part of the country!

Four of us went to the Rose and Crown for lunch and had a fantastic meal. Not one of us could find anything wrong and we all left clean plates! My char drilled chicken salad was fantastic, full of flavour. My knickerbocker glory was truly scrumptious. This pub serves some seriously good food, it is well worth a visit.

Danny is an amazing chef and we are regular visitors so we decided to ask him to do our "wedding breakfast", which involved the guests doing the beautiful 200 metre walk to the Rose and Crown through the village from Mayfield Hall where we held the wedding. The menu and table arrangements were easily sorted a couple of months in... More

We had read in the caravan club review that this restaurant was excellent. We were not disappointed the food was freshly cooked and all homemade and the deserts were to die for the home made ice cream and mango sorbet were particularly good.

Trip Advisor come up trumps here! I wanted a single night bed and breakfast near Ashbourne that also could provide an evening meal for my wife and I and two old friends. The landlord, Danny, gave us a warm welcome, and then became the chef. I say Chef, not cook, because this was not standard 'pub food', each of us... More

Wonderful food and a fantastic menu, good prices which are more restaurant than 'pub food' but the quality is worth the extra The beer selection though lets things down as there's a very limited range of beers, and no local real ales

Fantastic food, great service and brilliant staff . We had a party of 22 and everyone enjoyed it. Great value for money. The Rose & Crown is just finishing a new extension and is just been finished off, greatly improved.
