Late Sunday lunch with family. Great selection on the menu with children's just small adult portions. Food was typical good pub grub with an upside above the typical. Puds were something else! Service was excellent with a smile.

We have just had a really fabulous Sunday lunch, everything was cooked to perfection and piping hot. You are always assured of a warm welcome from Colette, Tom and the whole team. Neil and Nikki are great chefs and very accommodating, nothing is ever too much trouble. Looking forward to our next visit which will not be far away.

Excellent Christmas and New Year's Eve dinner at the Rose and Crown. Collette and team are really getting things together. A real 'craic' at the revitalised Rose and Crown. Great food and more exciting events to come. Can't wait to sample Burns Night and the Italian evening with a Peroni between each course. Well done to enlighten the spirit of... More

So great to see the pub open again. We ate there with the kids on sat evening, good kids menu (they loved the scampi), the new menu is classically simple, really good fresh ingredients cooked wonderfully well. Lovely to meet the new management who were genuinely warm and welcoming. Sunday lunch was equally good, simple fresh ingredients cooked really well... More
