Came to the hotel today with 3 of my friends to get something to eat. A lovely young lady served us who made lovely drinks for us all and took our food order, once the food came it looked amazing and we couldn’t wait to start eating and it didn’t disappoint at all! Was worth every penny and will be returning very soon. Thank you Rose and Crown.
My friend told me about the lovely food she had at the hotel made by a lovely young chef who she had the pleasure to met and have a conversation with in the beautiful courtyard. I rang up this evening around around 6:45pm to book a table for 5 at 8pm (I know short notice) and was told the kitchen will be closed all week by a French gentlemen on the phone, even tho on Facebook they had posted earlier today lovely pictures of food with opening times. Left confused about the whole situation.
We paid a very brief visit for coffee a couple of days ago. We enjoyed excellent coffee which was very hot and served in cups & saucers at a favourable price. The staff were friendly & helpful. Everything way beyond the standard of any of the ghastly high street chains. We enjoyed stimulating conversation and banter with other customers at opposite ends of the social scale in the faded glory of this lovely, historic hostelry. We'd gladly return if we are ever back in Wisbech.
My husband and I visited the Rose & Crown hotel for lunch on Monday August 17th 2020. It was the first time we have had a proper day out since we went into lockdown and self isolation in March. The weather was lovely so we opted to eat and have drinks outside in the courtyard. An Italian gentleman dried our table as it had rained earlier and we sat down. It took a while to receive our food as it seemed that there was only this Italian man racing around looking extremely stressed. The food was lovely and my husband and I were enjoying our drinks when the door to the bar opened and a man left heading to the car park. Then the most awful language was heard from the bar saying "get out" accompanied by a tirade of expletives. It was quite disturbing especially when an Indian gentleman appeared in the under cover area that joins the car park to the courtyard where we were by the hair salon which looked to be in the process of being emptied and continued the abusive language at this poor man who eventually retaliated. When we paid our bill my husband found out that the man with the filthy mouth and aggressive behaviour was in fact the owner of the hotel. It took the shine off a lovely lunch and needless to say it will be a place we shall be avoiding in future. One doesn't like to hear the kind of language on display here at the best of times, but when it comes from a member of staff or in this case the hotel's owner that you have provided your patronage to, it is unacceptable. We would have complained at the time but retreated quietly to enjoy our day out not knowing how our complaint would be received by the man who had been so aggressive and foul mouthed earlier.…
People everywhere no social distancing in place, staff not in ppe the place smells dirty and damp. Overheard staff talking about the owner and how is lacking any responsibility and full of homeless drunks and druggies not the kind of place for a nice anything
