Nice local gastropub. Good, hot food and friendly staff. Relatively good value for money. Limited selection of ales (only Pedigree). Not to my liking but I understand why some people like this place.

Our visit to the Rose & Crown was based on favourable reviews. Our immediate impression of the place was that it was overdue cleaning and redecoration. It is tired, dated, cheaply furnished and above all smells strongly of greasy kitchen. The food was poor. Service...More
