“Food to die for...scrumptious !”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

When you find a gem, you always judge any experience by that, I've not eaten anything since, thats surpassed the food at The Rose & Crown in Middle Mayfield. The place was recommended on a website and with it being a B&B, plus we love the Peak District, I chose the place to spend a cosy weekend and sample the delightful food last March 2013. It was also going to be the place where I proposed to my fiancee after 5 years together. She had no idea, but we were both blown away by Dan and Henriettas food, and I'm a fussy eater. Haddock fishcakes, Venison Pie which just melted in your mouth and the large homemade Bakewell Pie, I didn't want to go home. The accommodation is basic but very clean. For such a small village you could understand why it was always full on an evening, word spreads quickly, if you want to drop by for a meal I'd book in advance. The food is very reasonably priced, and take it from me, you won't be disappointed....Oh and by the way she said 'Yes'...we're hopefully going back to The Rose & Crown this summer on our Wedding Anniversary...its a 250 mile round trip but its worth it !!!

We were made to feel at home and the food was of a high standard. Room fairly basic but clean, warm and comfortable and not over priced. I would stay here again.and would recommend this pub. It is near to Dovedale and other local attractions.

My husband took me here for Valentine's day evening meal.
Parking is ok but car park is dark and no direction to the main entrance.

Choice of different wines by the glass is limited and draft beer choice also limited.

We had a really nice meal, food was fresh and very good. Staff were all very pleasant and we didn't have to wait for anything or ask twice for anything.

Main draw back is the lack of atmosphere. Most of the tables are in rows and there are no features to break them up.

We may go again but during the day for lunch.

After being an occasional, but regular,customer of this establishment for a number of years, it was long overdue for a personal review. Recently, I was a guest at a birthday lunch here, a well-maintained pub in a quaint countryside village, one that reflects life and local history of the village that it located in. All courses were delicious and tastefully presently, especially considering the number of people sitting down at one "sitting" and at the same time handling other customers! Service was timely and friendly, with no mistakes with pre-ordered dishes. Way above the average pub grub. I would recommend it to anyone, local or visitor passing by. Beware of traffic when exiting (situated on a sharp blind bend).

We found this lovely pub and restaurant by chance, we usually meet up with friends in the Ashbourne area and were running out of places to try, then i spotted the Rose and Crown on a search engine site, What a find!
The restaurant is spacious and well decorated, the staff are welcoming and very helpful, the food is superb with lots of choice, one of the best Sunday lunch menus I have come across in recent years. The food is fresh and nicely presented. It was excellent value, pre lunch drinks a bottle of wine with a two course meal averaged £23 per person. we will be returning very soon!

Just got back from a two day stay at the Rose & Crown. I have to say, this is a gem of a place to stay when visiting Derbyshire. Our hosts, Danny,Hen and all the family and staff make you so welcome, it makes for a very relaxed chilled out break. The food served by Danny is a marvel, fresh local ingredients brought together in an imaginative menu makes for a great dining experience. We use the Rose & Crown as a base when walking in the Dales and this stay was our fourth. After a day tramping across the beautiful Derbyshire hills, the great beers and fantastic foods prepared by Danny makes for a complete perfect experience. Looking forward to our fifth stay already.
