The sizzling steaks here are just that, copious, full of flavour and tender. We were the only table eating at the time and I asked for stilton cooked on top of my steak, which I got. All cooked to perfection, on time and hot. I would recommend!

We called into the Rose and Crown after a morning's sightseeing in Tintern. First impressions were so-so and we wondered if this was a pub for locals rather than visitors, however those impressions were quickly dispelled and the barman was very accommodating to us and our little one. We ate ham, egg and chips, a jacket potato and the lamb... More

Popped in for a quick drink whilst staying at the Wye Valley Hotel . Very friendly pub. A Halloween trail was taking place on the day we visited and several of the staff were dressed up to meet the local children. Very clean toilets too .. nice to see.. plus the food that we saw coming out looked good and... More

Spent a couple of days close to Tintern. We decided to eat here for the first night. We planned to go somewhere else on the second night but decided to eat here again! The food was well priced and tasted good, the beer was not expensive but most importantly we were made to feel very welcome.

We enjoyed a really good meal with efficient, friendly service. The steak was brilliant and I enjoyed a VERY good burger. I'd definitely go back.

We had a wonderful stay at the Rose & Crown,,Sally & Jason were fantastic hosts and we loved the 'local' atmosphere of the pub,it was definitely the most laid back boozer in Tintern which was great for us.... Food was great,,especially the steaks,which were cooked to perfection. Full English Breakfast was immense,,we couldn't believe how huge it was,but we did... More

Food was decent enough, we all had steaks. However and its a big however bin the old Cutlery. Its not nice eating with a streak knife that is blunt and where all the knives and forks were clearly 20 years old, with rotten wooden handles. To be frank I shouldn't even need to tell someone their knives and forks are... More

A true steak house. Choice of cuts, cooked exactly as requested. Great landlord and staff. Most beautiful view as we sat by the river.

We booked a room here for just one night and the hosts couldn't be more welcoming. The room was large, with a very comfortable bed and a view over the river. Sally was lovely and the barmaid Robin was really fun and chatty. The pub is a proper old-fashioned pub with masses of character and friendly locals. We ate dinner... More

Fancied a bite so dived in on the off chance. Got a warm welcome. A good pint and more importantly the food (steaks) were cooked how we asked and large portions too. Two hours of quality time sat next to the river. Just great.

Thank Dave F

Welcome to The Rose and Crown (Tintern Steakhouse) a small country pub on the banks of the River Wye. The Pub has open log fires and a warm friendly atmosphere dealing predominantly in locally sourced steaks as well as a bar menu. We took over the property in January 2012 and after extensive cleaning and interior work doubled the Enviromental Health Organization food and hygiene rating from a 2 star to a 4 star which is second only to the Wye Valley Hotel which has a 5 star rating and we are endeavouring to achieve this rating in the very near future incidentally we are the only restuarants to display the ratings as all the others in tintern rate 3 and below.
