The young couple who bought this formerly rather tired pub have invested a lot of time and thought in improving it. It is a work in progress as they fully admit, but none the worse for that. The food is better than you will get in any similar establishment - the chef is creative without being intimidating. I have eaten...

I have been here a few times for food. They have since refurbished it and it now looks much more appealing. I came here with friends and we had food and lots of wine. The staff were very accomodating and friendly. We sat outside to enjoy the evening weather...albeit looking on to the car park but you cant have everything....

We spent three nights at the Rose & Crown and dined in each evening. Danny (the chef) and Henri were the most amazing hosts. They were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Danny's cooking is way above the standard pub fare and at a very reasonable price. The accommodation was fine and, for the price, excellent value. It...

A great location to meet with family and so much to do in the locality. Very friendly hosts who own this family orientated pub restaurant with good value BnB. Extensive quality menu at terrific value, and wide range of drinks. Polite staff and comfortable rooms. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and look forward to the next time, already booked.

This was a trip to Derbyshire with no prior knowledge of The Rose and Crown. What a treat! It's more of a "Restaurant with Rooms" - the food is the absolute highlight of this place. But the rooms are good - warm, well supplied with drinks and biscuits - and the welcome from Danny was excellent. We'd definitely like to...

We don't live near the Rose Crown in Middle Mayfield but this is becoming an annual Anniversary now...just can't get better food anywhere...all made fresh the same day by Danny and Henrietta. We dropped in from Warrington Cheshire and stopped over on our way to Dorchester...bit of a detour but worth it. Scrumptious food and great company yum yum !...

We attempted to book a night here and were pleased there was availability. However when they discovered we had a child, a 10 month old to be precise, we were advised they would not accept our booking. I was told that in case our baby woke up the other guests they could not accommodate us. I am so upset by...
