“Oh dear!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Arrived and booked in and all seemed OK. The beer, bar, food and staff were all very good. What let it down was the property and fixings. Needed a good clean and redecoration. Our room was dusty, there was a previous clients pyjamas left in the room, the four poster bed leaned at alarming angles but was very comfy to sleep in. The central heating didn't work properly so 4 days without hot water, lukewarm at best. The shaving light in the shower room didn't work and there was a leak from the macerator toilet system. All in all I would recommend it for a night out or a meal but as for staying there, if you need to stay in Bainbridge use one of the many B&B's. Just remembered you cannot watch the TV from the four poster bed.

We walked the Cam High Road and had booked at the Rose and Crown for a meal. Although we were almost 2 hours late they made us most welcome and roast dinner was excellent. We were warm and cosy by the log fire and the service was good and friendly, particularly the young lady in the bar. This is an old pub- it is not your bright modern palace. If you want that, go elsewhere. These old English pubs are to be cherished. We would highly recommend the Rose and Crown to walking parties - the beer is good too.

On a beautiful wintry Sunday afternoon we visited this 15th century hotel for lunch on the way to Masham. We both ordered sandwiches which arrived promptly and were well presented. Go for the curly fries!! Friendly service and stunning location. Highly recommend.

We visited for an evening meal in the winter when we did not want to travel too far. The bar maid was friendly and welcoming with a nice open fire. However the food was very expensive and of very poor quality (inedible, cheap, naff sausages).

David C, Owner at The Rose & Crown Hotel, responded to this review, March 11, 2014
It is pleasing to read that customers are being made to feel welcome again after the recent problems.
The dish in question was Great Yorkshire Pudding with Sausages and Onion Gravy. It was served with Mashed Potato, Green Beans and Baby Carrots. The Sausages, as has been the case for a number of years, come from the butcher whose shop is in the village. He makes these Sausages and he supplies most of the hotels and pubs in the dale.
The cost of the food is £9.80
My staff cannot remember any detrimental comments made recently about such a dish.

After trekking around Hawes looking for a nice place to eat, we returned to the Rose and Crown in Bainbridge. There was a lovely log fire in the dining area. The bar man was very friendly and provided us with a menu that had a variety of choice. Both our meals were delicious, the Scampi and the Steak and Ale pie. Very good value for money and served with two decent pints of Fosters. Would definitely recommend this place for food and drink and warmth.
