Really lovely meal and wonderful service - the pub has definitely benefitted from a change of ownership - it's been spruced up, looks much more cheerful and the menu is more varied and creative. Had a lovely buzz about it on the Thursday evening that we visited. Will definitely be going again!

Warmly welcomed by the host and staff, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the ambiance and service. The menu was imaginative and the food cooked to perfection. In fact, the best wild boar burger anywhere. We had not visited the pub for some long while but aim to do so now, knowing that there’s a first class venue on our doorstep.

Pub was very welcoming as was the landlord. Great selection of real ales. Good menus featuring local produce and all dishes prepared from scratch. Presentation was good. Also offered specials on certain days, pizza nights, Argentinian grill for meats and home smoking. All in all a pleasure to eat and drink there

We found the plated servings of roast dinner to be very large especially with large roasties, roast veg and large yorkshire. It was very tasty but more lighter veg sides would have been a better balance for us. The starter(scallops ) and pudding especially the brulee were great. The service was very friendly and helpful and so efficient that we had our meal in just over an hour whch wasn't enough for the large servings, with little time between courses. We understood that we had an hour and 40 at the table from 12.30 but were asked to move at 1.45. Overall the experience was very good and we will probably return.

Overall was as good an experience as you can have outside on a chilly April day ! Service was excellent. Food was expensive and pretty average .my fish was overcooked. Some sense of pricing to catch up what's been lost.

Unfortunately due to Covid regulations regarding ventilation the restaurant felt cold. We all sat with our coats on which is not comfortable. We thought the steak served on a board, although understanding it is the modern way of presentation was not appropriate for a sauce to be poured over, however this was changed to a plate quickly. This is the second time that I have had a meal that on the menu describes that it comes with a salad. In truth this is a bowl of lettuce! Wishing you all good luck for the future.

The Rose & Crown is a cosy country pub with a very small garden, so providing outside dining space is difficult; they've done a good job with limited resources. Service was pretty good in the difficult circumstances, too. Having said that, my food wasn't as good as it usually is: I had what was described as Ceasar (sic) Salad with smoked chicken, crispy bacon and avocado, but there was no avocado and the chicken, though tasty, was dry and a bit tough. I didn't complain at the time that there was no avocado as I didn't realise it until I'd finished and we were leaving, otherwise I would have pointed it out before starting to eat.

Great to be cooked for again and have a choice of good real ales. Only comment on food is that gravy was redundant with the pie which was liquid enough as it was. Wish I’d had the sticky toffee pudding which looked great!

We were sat in the snug on our own, a table of 2. Absolutely no ambience or atmosphere whatsoever. The food, however, was absolutely lovely.
