Warm and welcoming on cold day. Plate full of pub grub cooked to order. Small country pub just off the A34.

A great example of what is rapidly becoming an endangered species, the village pub. Food is excellent and always well presented. Plenty of choice (vegetarian options continue to be a rarity, but it is always possible to negotiate with the chef). Atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from a pub that is rooted in its local community but welcoming... More

Charming little pub with chilled out atmosphere on a weekday night and great hospitality. Not far from the science park, menu didn't have a veggie option on, but the chef (and owner) was more than able to whip up a great omelette. Highly recommend!

This is your typical local British pub. If you're sick of gastro pubs and you just want to unwind with a nice pint and some tasty reasonably priced food then the rose and crown is the spot for you.

This is our local pub, it isn't very fancy just a traditional local but they do a good Sunday lunch. It does get very busy on Sunday's so you need to book or risk not getting your choice of meat. Each table is called up in turn, you help yourself to vegetables and the landlord serve your choice of meat.... More

Visited here during the 6 nations and had a really welcoming atmosphere and great family feel to it. Near full time the landlord offered free chips to everyone watching the game which was a lovely touch. One of my favorite pubs I've been to for a while and will visit again

I have visited this pub several times since my previous review (March 2015) and called in again with friends 'on the off chance'. The landlord had seen us arriving in the car park, and had immediately reserved a good table for us - how's that for service! Unfortunately, all the fish and chips had gone, but the delicious Irish Stew... More
