Stayed here for one night in a large double room as I attending a wedding at the Belle Epoque ( which is a lovely venue!). Firstly, I emailed three months in advance to ask for an early check in. I got no response. I understand that this might not have been possible, but a simple acknowledgment to my email would... More

We called in to the Rose & Crown on a Sunday afternoon as part of a group of 6. We were seated quickly and placed our orders. After half and hour we asked would the food be much longer as 4 of us were heading to the airport to catch a flight and time was ticking. The male server came... More

Wonderful meal with friends last night, great black pudding starters, then chicken skewers and steaks. The Fillet was magnificent. Finished with some wonderful desserts. Great service and drinks, will certainly not leave it as long between visits next time!

A really friendly pub in the heart of Knutsford. We visited this pub last week. It was quite busy, but no problem getting served. Staff very friendly.

I arrived on Sunday evening and asked for a table just as the kitchen was closing. The staff were very accommodating, checked with the kitchen staff that they could still serve and then sat me at the table. The service at the end of a long day was as bright and helpful as if the start of the day, very... More

Evening meal with a large group. Food was excellent and good service. Still has the pub feel and atmosphere but with good quality food. There was live music on the night we were there which wasn't bad but wasn't really conducive to a meal with friends so we didn't stay quite as long as we would have.

Dear Cazzy Thank you for your kind review of the Rose and Crown. With regard to the music, I will take that on-board, especially as the music is meant to attract people rather than discourage them. Kind regards Matthew Mooney More

We booked here for a surprise 60th birthday for my dad with 20 of us attending. We were asked to provide menu choices prior to the night which we did via email a week before, along with other requests such as my dad ordering in the night due to the surprise and not having food until after his arrival which...

Met here for a chat, food and drink on a Sunday afternoon. The decor is something very tudor esque, with wooden beams, real log fire and benches. There is a separate Sunday lunch menu with a shared roast chicken dinner for £20 or roast beef with trimmings (which I had) for £13. Other choices include fish and chips, pie or... More

Dear Will Thank you for your review of the Rose and Crown.

This is a review of the restaurant, not the Hotel. Two of us had dinner here on Friday. There is a bar area that was busy, and then the restaurant to one side. It has a nice lively atmosphere and was pretty busy. The decor is traditional and comfortable, if a little on the dark side. The food was excellent.... More

Stayed on Monday 26th September. Room was clean, (albeit on the small side). Lighting could go with sorting out as the room was quite dim. Ate in the restaurant/bar area. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wine was a touch expensive at £9 for a glass of Malbec, but Hey Ho. The food was cooked well and nicely presented, Breakfast... More
