We got a warm welcome, and although there is a beautiful conservatory we decided to sit in the bar/restaurant area. We ordered a garlic and cheese pizza to share and one ham and tomato sandwich and I had the fillet of fish... More

Fantastic to have our village out back in the hands of experienced landlords. Every dish I've had has been super and we never have bad things to say about it. Would recommend to anyone wanting a good meal out. 2 steaks and wine for £30 on Thursday - an offer not to be refused.

We are the new owners of a holiday rental close by and we have had a few trips to get to know the area and facilities both for our own use and to recommend to our guests for their enjoyment during their stay. The Rose and Crown looks very welcoming from the outside but it did take a few readings... More

My sister and I went to this pub for a meal and were very pleasantly surprised. After being given the menus as we walked in and offered a drink straightaway,( a bugbear of mine is sitting waiting just to get a drink let alone food), we dithered about whether we were going to have wine or not, the very friendly...

really disappointed in the whole experience, the restaurant not clean, the toilets not clean, the staff not good either, the food not special and very expensive for what you get. The wine we ordered was not good and the red was cold to cool. Overall the positive comments from other reviewers must be friends, surely not paying patrons. What a... More
