We have not eaten here for a long time. The pub was dark and you stuck to the tables. Visited last night to find a huge transformation. The place has undergone some renovations which leaves the pub open and airy, lighter decor brightens up the room. The menu is just gorgeous with so many choices. Excellent staff, quick service really... More

On a special birthday weekend, we had a warm welcome at the Rose &Crown. More importantly, the meals were up their appetising best. As so often in the past, I found the steak and ale pie very tasty, with an ample helping. The accompanying chips owed nothing to a plastic bag, and everything to good home cooking. My wife thoroughly... More

A little out of the way from our B&B, but definitely worth the trip. The food was delicious, the people working there were great, the bill very reasonable. If you are visiting the area, don't hesitate to try the Rose and Crown, there is something for every taste from great seafood dishes to fantastic vegetables!

My wife and I called in here on the way back from a local flying experience we had been to. We called here purely by chance and had a very tasty meal of Hunters Chicken with some excellent beer ,lager and wine. The landlord was very chatty, courteous and welcoming and the place itself was very comfortable and clean including... More

A superb choice of menu, reasonably priced. This far exceeded our expectations. Situated in a quiet area we were amazed at just how busy this pub was. A reflection of the quality and price.

There are a number of good quality pub/restaurants in the Ashbourne area but none can offer such consistently high quality food at reasonable prices as the Rose and Crown , Danny is a top chef and Henrietta and the staff are always efficient,friendly and attentive. The fish dishes in particular are quite superb and we have no hesitation in recommending... More
