We enjoyed a fantastic meal here with friends last Saturday. A lovely ambience, the refurbishment looks great, friendly staff and the food was plentiful, beautifully cooked and well presented. The service was excellent, we look forward to returning!

I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection and my friend had the vegetarian option of a winter salad, which looked absolutely amazing. The revamped bar is incredible and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I’ve just read a review about Sunday lunches, so that will be our next foray!!

Roaring log fire on a miserable wet day. Cosy, friendly a real pub. Service excellent, and the food WOW... beautifully cooked and was delicious. Highly recommended . Good for walkers a perfect stop off to help you on your way. Dog friendly a bonus.

We have had several meals at the Rose & Crown now and all have been superb.
Lovely roast beef with proper Yorkshire pud and roast potatoes, a very nice steak with excellent chips.
Andy & Caroline and staff are making this pub into a firm favourite again after years in the darkness.
The whole building has had a sympathetic make over and it feels just right .
Good beers on tap too, well done all.

My husband and I had such a special evening here last night. The pub was buzzing, and couldn’t have been more cosy with the fire burning, gorgeous decor and friendly staff. Food was sensational! We had scallops and wood pigeon to start. Delicious. My husband enjoyed the pork belly and I loved the duck with red cabbage. My highlight was the incredible lavender creme brûlée, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten something so delicious! My husband loved the generous cheese board. The staff couldn’t have done more to make us feel welcome. The wine was very reasonable and very good. I loved the gin bar! We will be back again very soon.

Hi AsiaTraveller3

Many thanks for your wonderful review.

I am delighted to hear you loved the lavender creme brulee, we have had many compliments about it in the last two weeks since the kitchen opened.

We hope when you next get a baby sitter we will see you again very soon.

Best wishes
