A group of us met here, as part of our regular habit of socialising at a different restaurant a very few weeks. A very warm welcome, log fire too. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was gorgeous. A lovely atmosphere.

So I had been here for a drink once before a while ago but this was my first time eating here. I booked it for my partner's birthday and the whole family loved it. Lots of choice, tasty food, child friendly and brilliant customer service would definitely recommend (and already have been) we'll be back!

Friendly welcoming staff who made us feel at home right away. We opted for the 2 course lunch menu at £9.95 and were amazed by the value and quality of this.... More

Monday lunch visit after long dog walk, super efficient staff sorted out a table as we ordered our drinks. All four of us settled for the Lighter Lunch menu (available Monday and Tuesday lunchtimes) at £9.95 a head for two courses and it was delicious. Service was exceptional, as a result guests were all relaxed, creating a warm and friendly... More

What an absolute fantastic place. Food and service was outstanding. Even a candle for my mum in her dessert! Nice touch! Can not thank you all enough for being so accommodating and attentive, especially the lovely waitress (sorry didn't get her name) but she was very patient when asked bizarre questions from my mum!! Honestly this place is a gem,... More

We had heard good things about this restaurant but apart from a good choice of gluten free meals and friendly staff we were disappointed. The heating wasn't working which meant we had to eat with our coats on. My husbands fruit salad was fermenting and our coffee was cold...which we tried to remedy by asking for some hot milk but...

Booking is definitely recommended at the Rose and Crown as the restaurant was completely full when we ate here one Sunday afternoon. The food was brilliant, I had brie for starters and roast lamb for main which was so tender and huge yorkshire pudding which is always a bonus!! Washed down with a nice glass of merlot along with friendly... More
