We came here after we had been to view a local property and the owners recommended it.....the recommendations of locals are never far wrong! An unassuming pub from the road, but what a gem. A sun terrace outback has wonderful views and the food is outstanding. We had the three course menu which at £12.95 offers exceptional value. The menu... More

Once again fabulous food, home cooked by Danny. High quality and beautifully presented food. Sourced locally. Friendly with excellent service. Lovely and bright. We will be back very soon. Perfect place to have a catch up with friends and family. My girls were very disappointed that they could not eat here tonight. Promised a school holiday visit.

Called in for a bite to eat and a much needed pint after a day at Alton Towers. The service, food and drink were spot on. Real ales, curry, steak pie and a cracking dessert, what more could a girl ask for??? If we ever head to The Towers again we'll be sure to call in again!!

My first meal was a take on a lamb tagine but served up as a lamb pie. Very delicious, superb flavours. I was equally impressed with the... More

Ordered drinks at the bar which was happily added to a "tab" which gets a... More

My husband and I were in Middle Mayfield on a walking holiday and were fortunate to be staying in a B&B close to the Rose and Crown and walked to this lovely Inn for three consecutive nights. Having had such good service and lovely food on the first night we decided not to try anywhere else. The menu was extremely... More
