Visited recently with friends after getting a 50% off voucher. Food was really good, well worth a visit, I had the super good salad and asked if I could have halloumi too which was no problem. We're booked again to go next month.

We booked in here for five nights. It is totally unsuitable for wheelchair users or people like my husband who have a heart condition. This is a very old building with lots of stairs. It is also a busy pub so all my comments have to put in this context. Our room overlooked the beer garden. While this is busy... More

We have visited the Rose and Crown several times,and it has never been exactly what we like.Maybe its different in the evening but in the daytime it seems unfriendly and overpriced We now go elsewhere and are much happier.Sorry but if staff don't make customers welcome then they will go elsewhere

Dear Bo I'm sorry the Rose'N Crown isn't for you, you can't win them all. Are staff are usually quite friendly, but maybe when you visited I hadn't given them their morning feed of raw meat and coal. Maybe give us a try in the evening, the staff are much friendlier as they are usually drunk. Hope to see you... More

We shared ribs which came straight off the bone. My wife had a steak loved it, my burger was one of the best I have had even if the wooden board it was served on left a tiny bit of wriggle room. 50% off the food bill was a bonus we didn't know about when we booked so nice food... More

We were struggling to find somewhere to eat that would allow our dog in. We asked and were told we could bring her into the bar area. The area was nice and cosy with friendly staff. Our food was delicious and we really enjoyed it. I would recommend it and will certainly return in the future.

We booked a table of six for last Friday night as there was live music. We were given a lovely round table to sit at, which worked so well. This pub always has a good buzz about it and the staff are so helpful. We had lots of requests for slight alterations to the menu and nothing was a problem.... More

We booked in last Friday as one of our favourites was advertising live music. We dined on some fantastic steaks as ever washed down with a great Pinot Noir, a well above average wine list for a pub. Then the live music start and boom, an already great night when up several notches. In summary, great food, wine, music and... More

Absolutely superb pub visit. Just popped in for a pint of my favourite local ale, the MPA. Whilst seated, a friendly waiter approached and offered a bar nibble (garlic, shallot and onion "fontarabie" flatbread). Having sampled the goods, I will be sure to come back and sample the a la carte menu!!

We can't thank the Rose and Crown enough for helping accommodate our guests for our nearby wedding. The rooms were lovely, clean and spacious and the breakfast the following day was delicious. The pub is well placed in Knutsford and has a lovely atmosphere in the evening. All the staff were courteous and helpful and it was because they went... More
