Just returned from our 2nd visit to the Rose & Crown and we weren't disappointed.
The location is great, easily accessible from many areas in England & Scotland, with a great location opposite the Village Green and next to the Church.
Our room was in the courtyard and had everything you needed and we enjoyed watching the DVD from a mid 1970's ITV Documentary on the Village. If we visit again we will need to try one of the rooms in the main building.
The Guest Wine was an excellent Chilean Red which we enjoyed in the snug bar and during our meal in the restaurant. Highlight of the meal for me was the Venison Main Course, Loin of Venison and a Mini Venison & Mushroom Pie. While it didn't impact on our evening a few dishes started to drop off the menu as orders were taken and I suspect it might have been menu change over time, hence lower supplies. Only other comment on the menu is from my wife who thought that Fish dishes were perhaps too prominent - I think there were 3 Fish Mains, 2 Meat Mains and 1 Vegetarian Option.
All of the staff we encountered were friendly and professional.
