Went to the Rose and Crown for a meal for two. I had heard good things . . . . .Oh well, all good things must come to an end. The ambience is great, if you like reliving the seventies, from the cluttered walls, dodgy paintwork and uncomfortable seats to the plastic plants and flourescent lights, its a mecca to all things tat. The drinks are expensive if you are driving, coke is available from a can at a premium price, although you do get a dried piece of lemon thrown in.
The meal itself took quite a while to arrive (we were the only two eating at the time) and it was basically OK, nothing special. I made the mistake of having the chicken in basket which appeared to be fried in order to reheat, this had the nice effect of glueing itself to the serviettes in the basket, as did the chips. It also made the chicken extremely hot, I think it was still cooking itself ten minutes after being served.
Cutlery could do with being cleaned a little better, as could the glasses. But if you're looking for a 1970's upmarket Pub/Cafe then the Rose and Crown is a definite winner!
