Greeted straight away. Friendly staff. Server explained dishes/specials. Our friends were late due to traffic issues. No problem with this and we were not rushed at all. Clean restaurant & bar area. Would definitely visit again. We were not asked about allergies although none of us experience allergy problems. But maybe this question should be asked.

We got a warm welcome in this friendly pub. Good choice on menu (I can recommend the delicious chicken Cajun burger and divine chocolate brownie). Good value for money. Most importantly, friendly, helpful staff. We had a lovely evening.

We very much enjoyed visiting and eating at the Rose and Crown on 4 June 2022. We chose this after a search on rankings, the menu, ambience and value. After that we went to Batemans, very close by. A great day.

We love old English pubs and this was no exception. Low ceilings with lots of wooden beams at head banging height for the tall. Warm greetings from manager and staff. Service was excellent throughout. The food would have been excellent but slightly burnt pie crust and under cooked vegetables - less aldentè, more warm but raw. However, we suspect this isn't typical and we will be coming again.

Had the fish pie which was very nice. Veg is veg but broccoli spears were very al dente so I couldn’t eat them. Only had the florets. Liked the dish but I think it didn’t justify the £16 cost. My wife did enjoy her meal, and we would return.

Very lovely English pub, with a buzzy atmosphere. We had the beef roast which was excellent. I would say that the service was very slow, and we had to ask when our order was due a couple of times. Also the music was too loud for a Sunday lunch time. Oddly there was a tv crammed in one corner but that’s might have been because the rugby was on! All in all l would go again.

Booked lunch at the Rose and Crown served and looked after by a lovely member of staff. My only critique would be the beef burger was a little small and quite dry. However my wife said they were the best chips she had ever eaten.

Two of us had the game pie was nice and the veg were a great improvement on a few weeks ago. Perhaps the brocolli was a little under cooked and the cauliflower the opposite. Donna a good host as usual.

We loved sitting by the log file . the staff were very friendly. The beer and food were good. The only thing we were disappointed in was our food pie of the day and sausage and mash were listed as served with seasonal veg, turned out to be just peas . Not what we imagined.

We were told immediately that we would have to wait along time for our food as there was no chef. This set the scene for our first visit in some time . I felt that the food was overpriced for the quality provided on that day. We have visited previously and it's been very good. Overall the staff tried hard but the pub was clearly understaffed at the time we visited.

We all 4 had the roast and all felt it was good but not exceptional. Some of the veg was a little overdone. Two of us had beef, which was tender to eat but difficult to cut: could have done with steak knives. Minor issue but thought worth mentioning.

The two dishes we would have chosen were already off the menu at 7pm (fish and chips, and sea bass). Vegetarian choice was very limited but a veggie Wellington was found somewhere in the depths of the freezer. Service was charming and reasonably prompt.

Husband enjoyed beers on tap and the wine list looked great, but food was very slow to be served and while fine, it had little to make it more than fine. Happy to be in a pub where dogs are welcome inside and out.
