After a hard days work you want a decent meal not...

My partner and I have stayed at The Rose and Crown three times, our first visit we had room 9 which was a beautiful room, plenty of space, huge bathroom and lovely view. We've since had two different smaller rooms, both rather unremarkable and could do with a fresh lick of paint instead of the patch jobs that have clearly...

Room was lovely & clean and was plenty big enough for our 1 night stay. We ate in the restaurant in the evening which was very busy, despite being understaffed, the staff that...

We where given room 1, which was well equipped and clean. I did feel that the room decor could do with a little TLC. The lining paper on the ceiling was coming off. The room was a good size but due to its location I would not recommend staying in it.You could hear people coming and going as it was...

We recently stayed here for a 2 night break over the weekend. Upon arrival our room was not ready as we arrived very early 11:45. The staff was very polite, helpful and assured us the rooms will be ready in 10 minutes so decided to have a quiet drink while we await. Rooms were immaculate & modern and very well...
