“Consistently excellent food at great prices. A local favourite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

The Rose and Crown is close to my parents' house and always a favourite when we go back to visit. The food is locally sourced, generously portioned and always delicious, plus is excellent value. Service is always friendly and efficient. In fact I wish there was a R&C closer to home!

Stayed for a Friday and Saturday night whilst on a walking weekend in the peaks. This makes an excellent base. Rooms are comfortable, welcome is warm and the food is truly first class. Already booked our next trip.

We dined at the rose and crown with my Dad on Easter Sunday. As always the food was consistently excellent - Danny is a superb chef - quality of the food is always top class and the menu is always varied to suit everyones tastes and dietary requirements. The staff are always efficient and friendly and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly.

Came in for a bite on Tue night. There were a couple of other tables in. It was very quiet and the service wasn't exactly smily. But on the other hand the food was brilliant. I had pasta and my partner had stroganoff. It looked and tasted delicious. This is a local for me so we will be back.

We stayed at The Rose and Crown for 1 night recently. Clean, comfortable room and excellent breakfast. The food we ate downstairs in the restaurant was really good and couldn't fault Danny and Henrietta for their service. A few of the waitresses could have been a little friendlier but other than that we had a really nice stay.

We stayed recently for 3 nights during the cold & snow spell.
Danny & Henrietta are fabulous hosts & we were made to feel very welcome. We were the only guests over this period, but nothing was too much trouble.
The room we had was small but very clean & comfortable. Lovely bed & sheets! Great shower for after our walks. There was a heater supplied which we did use.
The pub food is amazing! Big emphasis on local produce, great choice. Such good value as well. My belgian chocolate brioche pudding was out of this world!
The wine list is very good value - plenty of choice around 12.95.
Wifi was intermittent, but Danny kindly let us use his laptop to plan a few trips. I think this is a BT problem rather than the pub.
Overall, I would definately recommend this pub.
My only downside would be that it doesn't open until 6.30 which can leave a little gap in the day when returning from winter walks around 4.30.

We called at the Rose & Crown for Lunch

The staff were very friendly. The Food was good with added taste - not your average pub food. The sauces were very lifting.

Price was reasonable - especially the wine, with good bottles at reasonable prices

The only negative comment would be that the dining room is large, maybe a little dark and on the day we visited, it wasn't quite warm enough
