We both selected the roast beef dinner - lots of tender beef, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and veg. Not cheap at £12.95 each, but better to pay more for a good meal in my opinion. Just one minor negative - the... More

We dropped into the Rose & Crown for coffee around lunchtime. We were tempted by the bar snacks menu & ordered scampi & chips. Coffee was good. The scampi arrived in a basket & was served with homemade tartare sauce. A classy touch & very enjoyable.
