Built c.1640 this traditional pub has remained in the same family for over 150 years. Affectionately known as Eli's by locals after the current owners' grandfather. Beautiful thatched building with flagstone floors and unusual as it has no bar. You will find a warm welcome, a good selection of real ales, farmhouse cider and hearty home cooked food. There is a large car park, beer garden, skittle alley, pool table and juke box. Regular live music events and a monthly quiz night. Visit our Facebook page for details of events.

We visited the Rose and Crown, aka Eli's, the day we moved into our new home, which is, effectively, next door. None of us drink, but we were served with the soft drinks, including tea, that we ordered, along with some very tasty sandwiches. Since...More

Great pub, great service .... Local band playing, sun shining and the bar that isn't a bar! What more could we ask for.
