“Great find and a lovely venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Came for a quick drink here with some friends as we were staying near by. Managed to get a cancellation for Sunday lunch and we were happy with the results.

Booked for seven and were told we would be sat in the restaurant. When we arrived they had given our table to another party and we were seated in the bar. Not a big issue but did make our party feel a little bit relegated.

Food took an inordinately long time to arrive but the delay was handled well by the very friendly staff. We were offered a free round of drinks as way of apology which was gratefully received. We were more than happy to sit and wait in such lovely surroundings.

The starters were fantastic. Simple but very tasty.

The Sunday lunch was good. Very tasty but we had had the rare beef bigged up to us so much by the staff that when it came and it wasn't pink we were all a touch let down. But! It did taste lovely.

All finished off with lovely puddings.

Good value for Sunday lunch and I'd like to try the place out for dinner sometime.

“Anniversary Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have just had lunch at the Rose & Crown and once again the food was excellent especially the Shepherds Purse & Poached Pear tart which my wife said was scrummy. The staff are always very helpful and willing to accommodate your requests.

“A Special Wedding Day Thankyou To The Rose and Crown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

My Wife and I were lucky enough to have our wedding reception here on August the 17th. To say it surpassed our expectations would be an understatement! Firstly the care and attention shown to the smallest of details made us feel like the day truely had been tailored to our own specification, small touches like serving butter in china tea cups gave a vintage feel that what was exactly what my wife had wanted. The food served to 50 guests was sensational, chicken terrine, followed by the best roast beef and yorkshire pudding i have eaten since i was a kid! with a lovely lemon cheese cake for desert. i would happily recommend the food to anyone. The staff are without exception wonderful and are a real example of how service can be fast, polite and attentive while being friendly and relaxed. we had several children at the wedding and they were all made to feel special by the wonderful serving staff, the kids were even led in an impromptue dance off by one of the girls. once again the little touches making the day special! i cant recomend the place highly enough, be it for a sunday lunch or a family event, you will not be dissapointed. we and many of our guests are already planning our next visit.
To all that made our day special thankyou so much!!, to all thinking of visiting the Rose and Crown, make your booking as soon as you can!!

“Great Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Popped in without a booking while in village visiting Sutton Park today. Lovely decor , Couldn't fault, lovely roast dinner, really well presented, good portion and very tasty. Had my 3 small boys with me , did great child's portion, quick service which when you have children with you is very helpful. Lovely garden with great outdoor seating area and backs onto village play area which is brilliant. This is my first review as I truly recommend a visit. We will be going back.
