Ok the staff were very friendly and I was told about a 30 minute wait for the ultimate fish and chips and a Steak pie and mash for the wife. Started with a cappuccino which was served weak and wasn't offered with a chocolate topping...More

Came here on a Friday night for a quick bite to eat as close to our hotel. Staff were unfriendly, food was average, seriously overpriced, toilets a disgrace. Won't be visiting again.

Swanky location with some high-end hotels nearby. Not too loud (which can be a problem in some crowded pubs). Traditional menu. Decent food. Fun experience.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Description
The Rose & Crown on Park Lane is a traditional English pub in the heart of London's Mayfair. The pub dates back over 400 years and today we're famous for our great pub food and cask ale selection. The pub was once used as the living quarters for Oliver Cromwell's bodyguards. It was originally named 'The Oliver Cromwell' and remained so from 1643 to 1678. The pub was then renamed 'The Rose & Crown' and has traded ever since under that sign which consists of a royal crown surmounting a Tudor rose which symbolises the union of the houses of Lancaster and York. Since the late 18th century the Rose & Crown has stood in the shadow of Aspley House, in which the first Duke of Wellington lived for 35 years until his death in 1852. In those days the mansion was known as 'No 1 London' because it was at that point that the countryside ended and London began. We have an upstairs dining room with its own bar available for private hire. The team look forward to seeing you soon!
