A lovely pub in what seemed like a lovely village. Great reception, genuinely friendly and helpful. Everyone loved their food, except for a minor complaint about the treacle tart (it didn’t stop it being eaten!). Would love to spend an afternoon there on a cold day, seems like one of those cosy places you could enjoy in the winter

I would give a 10 on all counts. The food, the service was brilliant! Would I go there again? Absolutely! Special mention for the large teapot of lemon and ginger tea not a tiny cup. Now I have started another special mention for thick cod not a measly portion! Thank you so much

We held a large family reunion at the Rose and Crown on Saturday. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was delicious. There was so much on the menu that we wanted to choose so we went back again on Wednesday! Once more the food and the service were excellent.

My family and I had a lovely meal at the Crown in Ratley to celebrate a birthday. From the warm welcome to the glass of fizz handed over to the birthday girl as she sat down, the service was first class. The Sunday Roast was delicious and plentiful, absolutely nothing I could fault! I will definitely be returning

Absolutely brilliant lunch with friends, the best service possible and the best roast meat ever served (outside of home!) 1 little point deducted solely cos the starter, whilst perfectly good (particularly the picalilli) was a bit underwhelming cf the rest of the experience.

We enjoyed a very pleasant evening in beautiful surroundings. Service was friendly and attentive. Food excellent. My only comment would be the fairly high price for trout with violet potatoes and heritage tomatoes. I couldn’t really taste that these were special potatoes or tomatoes, however the basil oil was lovely, so too the trout.

This was our first visit. Staff were very welcoming and efficient. We couldn't have the table we had booked as the people before us were running over but we were perfectly happy in the bar with some friendly locals and equally friendly and well behaved dogs. The roast beef was very good. Only complaint was that the Yorkshire pudding was a little overcooked for my liking. We will definitely be returning.

This was our first visit to The Rose and Crown, but it certainly won’t be our last. A very pleasant and amiable greeting by the owner was the start of a great evening. A lovely cosy ambiance, enticing menu and food beautifully cooked and delicious to eat. The four of us really enjoyed our meal and indeed the whole evening. Thank you to the owner and especially the chef whose skill and love of good food was particularly evident. We’ll be back.
