A must stop if you are in the area. Fabulous food (one of the best steak and ale pies we have tasted!). A warm and friendly atmosphere with great staff and hosts. Will definitely go again... soon!

Visited for lunch with friends, very impressed. Their service, ambience and food were all of a very high standard and they are also dog friendly. We will certainly be returning to the Rose and Crown.
