We dined here last night with friends, it was excellent from start to finish. Great to start with a couple of pints of Wheetwood ale. On a cold January night the atmosphere was perfect, just what you want from a traditional pub, roaring fires and a friendly welcome. The food was excellent, particularly the 20oz rib eye. The food was... More

I wouldn't recommend this please for food. Their signature dishes are poor. It's a popular place and locals recommend it. I wouldn't. I eat out a lot and I'm not impressed. Pity because staff , menu and service good.

We had dinner at the Rose and Crown last week and I feel I must write to say how much we enjoyed the food and to say thank you to the staff. I have been several times before and have chosen the hake for the last two visits. It really is a super dish and was beautifully cooked and presented... More

Built in 1641, there are few older pubs in the country. The interior is what you would expect; redolent with history. While much of the trade is based around the restaurant aspect of the business, the bar is not neglected. Three cask beers, typically locally-brewed, are featured and the quality lately has been very good indeed. There is a healthy... More

We popped in here just for a drink. We chose here because dogs were welcome. We ordered 5 hot chocolates and 1 lemonade. After paying £17 we were expecting a nice big mug of luxury hot chocolate. How disappointed were we when after waiting 20 minutes and having to remind the staff of our order we were given a tiny... More

Meeting up with family for after Xmas lunch. Chose as reviews looked ok. Service was very slow and food not great at all. Had to send back burnt pie after long wait, then charged for it too. Sorry we will not be back.

I thought this would be your average meal deal pub but it was much better. The food was nicely presented and very tasty, my steak was not gristly and well seasoned. Day we visited was parsnip and apple soup, it was simply delicious. Atmosphere was friendly and cosy, staff were attentive but not intrusive. Loved the cups the tea/coffee is... More

We popped in for a drink before a wedding at the Belle Epoque next door. Very cosy, open fire, lovely décor. The pub also serves breakfast for the Belle Epoque's guests as well as it's own. Not a huge variety but it was still nice. Loved the tea cups!

Superb Sunday Roast. Excellent value and great service. We had the roast chicken with best gravy I have had in a long time. Nothing too much trouble for the waiting staff.
