“Fantastic Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We came here for drinks and appetizers and it was all quite tasty! The best part of this restaurant is the atmosphere. I definitely want to go back and try their dinner menu.

“Delicious dinner in Lewes”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

We visited the Rose and Crown for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. We used to eat at the original one but had not tried the new one in their new location. The atomosphere was very much in keeping with the original--brick walls, lots of wood. Since it wasnt crowded,we ate in the bar area. The menu was diverse and the food was delicious. I had the pot roast which was perfect and my husband had the fish and chips, which he said was great. Our server was attentive and pleasant. We will definitely return.

Very disappointed in the food. Server was very good, however the kitchen didn't seem to care my food was not done properly. Wouldn't recommend this restaurant . Sad because it's in the perfect location.

“Another dinner spot to try in Lewes”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

We were given a gift card to this restaurant so we figured that we would give it a try.
We had only a short wait and we were taken to our table. We placed our order and the was served in good time.
The platters were all presented well and the portions were generous.
Dinner was enjoyable and we would return.

We shouldn't have gone to a British-style pub for Irish coffee. Stopped in on a chilly evening before attending an event in Lewes after a lovely dinner in Rehoboth hoping to warm up with a coffee for "dessert." We wanted to sit at the bar, but none of the available seats were together so we were directed to lounge seating that extended in the hotel lobby. The coffees had some sort of cream "cake" floating on top with green food coloring (?) on top of that. The drink was very bitter and we only took a few sips before determining that they weren't going to be enjoyable. I took the drinks up to the bar and explained the problem to the waitress. She assured me that they weren't made with instant coffee or coffee made earlier in the day and suggested that they were just too strong. I've never known Irish whiskey to be bitter, maybe it was the food coloring. A bill was presented with no apology or offer to replace the offending drinks. We'll be looking for another place next time...not sure if we want to try the restaurant considering the low level of concern for customer satisfaction.
