Reading three of the previous reviews, I can only think they were certainly on two occasions before we visited, on what is usually a very busy night - a Friday for a 7-40 pm dinner. Firstly, the car park was almost empty, not an encouraging sign,and lo and behold, when we entered, it certainly confirmed our suspicions - just one... More

Our menu is available on the website for all to see. And yes, we are a pub offering good home cooked traditional dishes such as fish pie, pie and mash, burger, fish and chips... You're clearly competent online, maybe you should have checked it before you came? And if you were that shocked and horrified by our lack of restaurant... More

I found the menu to be a complicated and pretentious mixture of ingredients that a) I don't like or b)wouldn't satisfy the hunger of a gnat. I settled for a cheese sandwich but didn't ask for or eat the grass (salad) and what appeared to be a dollop of cold mash that was also put on my plate. I enjoyed... More

Hi there, We are the Rose & Crown, Harefield Road, Rickmansworth, WD3 1PP. Our menu is basic home cooked food. We are anything but pretentious, and our card machines were not down at the weekend! I'm sorry you had such a bad experience but we are a small independent business who are trying really hard to build our business and... More

Our first visit to the Rose & Crown was a lovely surprise. A great location with a very large garden with great views. The landlady was looking after us & couldn't have been more charming & helpful.The food was of a good standard & reasonably priced, we both enjoyed the experience of lunch on a sunny day in a great...

First visit to 'The Rose & Crown' at lunchtime today for my husband & I. Went with friends who had visited once before. So pretty exterior & bright and airy inside with lovely gardens with plenty of seating & fabulous views across the countryside. Very friendly welcome & superb service.

We are shocked and flabbergasted at your review... our staff are very friendly. I was on shift that day and can assure you that there were many smiles and thank yous! Taking food from one guest and giving it to another is simply not acceptable! This took place on Sunday March 20th and although i have spoken with all the... More

We used to visit this pub quite often for a midweek lunch or Sunday lunch, so after a long absence, my husband and I decided to re visit on Sunday for lunch. I was surprised that the car park was practically empty as it was a nice afternoon and this pub used to be packed! My husband ran in to... More

The place does a good range of beers, which was the primary reason for stopping off on a Saturday lunchtime while walking. The sandwich menu while using standard 21st Century overhype ("Brie" instead of plain old cheese!) is good value. A sandwich is big enough for a snack for two people. It has has several outside areas, you can sit... More

Lovely old pub with good food and drinks, very helpful and attentive staffl. I had a roast and my husband had a burger, both were really good, The food is all fresh and home made, a sampler of a few of the puddings would have been good as I found it difficult to choose, or a creme brulee.
