Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Took my Mum and Wife here for Mother’s Day along with my kids and we had the most amazing meal. Not only was the food superb but the service was outstanding. They couldn’t do enough for us, all of them are so lovely - even...helped cater for our 2 fussy kids. Will definitely be going back soon! 👏🏼👏🏼More

Today, we took my father out for lunch on his 86th birthday and chose here because of its reputation in the area and our own past experience of it being so positive. Today still managed to exceed expectations as every one of the seven of...us really enjoyed everything we had across three courses. The food was excellent. I hadn't mentioned when I booked that it was my father's birthday but it came out in the conversation with staff between courses and when his dessert arrived it was on a larger plate with Happy Birthday written on it in chocolate and a sparkler burning. Great food, great and friendly service. I'm already looking forward to the next visit. Maybe mix it up by having a quiet drink by the lovely open fire.More

Been wanting to go here for ages! Managed to book a table after 2 answerphone messages and a conversation. Turned up on a Saturday night to find no table due to a "miscommunication" ! We were finally offered a totally unsuitable table in the walkway...right by the bar. We were very disappointed and left. Our evening was saved by the Saffron in Brackley. See my review!More

We lived coming here. We met family here as we live north and south, and the owners were brilliant at getting us in. It is a great country pub, friendly, nothing is too much trouble, the food was delicious. Would wholeheartedly recommend. The only comment...I would make is that as a vegetarian, I would say it might be good to have another veggie option. The veggie dish was lasagne, which I absolutely love, so for me was perfect (and the chips they do are amazing!!). Thank you for a wonderful evening!More

About twenty of us flew into Hinton in the Hedges and descended on Rhona and her team for lunch. At her request nearly all of us had pre-ordered so she had a list of names and orders. She had prepared an area to seat us...all, and the piping hot and very tasty food was served incredibly promptly, by Rhona and her friendly smiling team. Individual payment was also made simple. We were all very impressed and look forward to returning to this delightful village pub. Thank you all.More

The welcome at the Rose and Crown is always warm and friendly. The meals are always delicious and the specials are very varied, it’s frequently difficult to choose!

We had Sunday lunch here with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The landlord and landlady were very welcoming on arrival and the service was great throughout our meal.

Always excellent food and great service . The food is freshly cooked which I think is quite rare nowadays. The meals are good value for money. There is sually a nice fish dish not necessarily battered! The specials are always fab.

Reviewed 7 March 2023

Were expecting some great food from this pub as researched it thoroughly for a lovely sunday lunch with the family. The starters were disappointing (the spring roll was all soggy and undercooked inside). There was hardly any meat with the roast but worst of all...- there was not much choice of sides like coulifouer and cheese which is a MUST for all sunday roasts? The potatoes seemed like they've been reheated at least 3 times or cooked the day before as they were waxy inside. All in all we won't be back.More

We popped in for a couple of lunchtime drinks, but the lure of the open fire and a roast dinner was too good to pass up. We both had pate starter, roast beef main, and for pudding I had the Affogato and hubby had the...key lime pie. It was all delicious! The roast beef was really tender and perfectly cooked and there was plenty of it. Veggies, roast spuds and Yorkshire puds were all spot on. The beer is kept really well (good choice as well - Tribute, London Pride and Timothy Taylor Landlord). All the staff are really friendly and welcoming. This was our first time eating here though we’ve been for drinks plenty of times. We’ll definitely be back for food again and have already recommended to our friends.More

Whilst we only called in for a delightful lunch I feel sure they will have the facilities you require, they seemed very helpful and keen to look after everyone. Hope that helps.
