Lovely little Pub in the middle of nowhere halfway between Hythe and Canterbury. Superb food. Special price for OAP's midweek phone first it gets busy. We love it, lots of walking country around so its the perfect place to stop and enjoy a rest whilst you quaff a shandy and tuck into the lovely food. We cant resist revisiting this... More

We have used this pub for a meal a few times now and have been made most welcome each time. They are dog friendly, the prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. The food is superb so we had our family Christmas dinner there in December 2016. We will be taking a large group of friends there soon at... More

It has a lovely location and is a real old fashioned pub .A good menu for meat eaters and vegetarians. Absolutely super food with three different vegetables, not the usual frozen peas, and you are given a choice of potatoes. , Lovely warm customer service, with frequent unobtrusive passing by to see if all was well.

My wife and I have been looking forward to visiting this restaurant ever since my father-in-law attended a family celebration there and returned enthusing about the meal he had enjoyed there. The three of us had lunch there today and chose the home-made steak and kidney and steak and ale pies. These were served with a choice of chips or... More

There were about 20 people in our group, for a pre booked, 3 course lunch. I had Whitebait with salad followed by Beef and Ale home cooked pie, which was seved with a delicious selection of... More

Food was much better than our previous visit but service is a bit dour. Too busy for the number of front of house staff so they are always pressured. Coffee is a bit grim.

Visited this pub because of glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. However, found it a disappointing experience. Yes we were served generous portion sizes, but the food itself was very bland. The homemade pie gave every appearance of being reheated in microwave as the pastry was left soggy. .Also frozen rather than fresh vegetables were used. The burger we ordered was uninspiring...

We came to Kent on holiday and staying in Stelling Minnis, on our first night we came to the Rose and Crown and got welcomed warmly. Staff were very friendly and even great with the dog too. The food was fantastic and would recommend to anyone to go. Will try and pop back before we leave!!
