Waited along time for drinks.
Out of stock on tonics ad bitter lemon so waited even longer

Fillet Steaks very bland and pepper sauce was not like anything I have tasted before.
Asked the waitress if it was pepper sauce she said oh maybe it’s barbecue.

Over all over priced food and drink punching above weight.

The food was good quality and good value because we went on a Tuesday with government offer
Too crowded in the restaurant with social distancing compromised. Waitresses did not have face coverings
So overall I would go back but not until the end of the pandemic - this is not a safe restaurant.

Booking on Open Table fine except I have been inundated with reminders of my reservation and asking for a review. Hopefully sending this will ease the incoming emails to me.
Couple of down markings. I asked for one ice cube in my long drink but it came packed with ice, not what I like.
We sat outside on a very large round table which was thoughtful and fine for social distancing although one of our party said staff hovering over their shoulder was off putting as it was their first venture out since lockdown. Some of the plastic rattan chairs were wonky and two older ladies found they were too low to see their meal so we swapped them with another table.
It was Eat out to help out day so hopefully we were all winners, thanks Rishi.

Food was ok but nothing special. Setting was nice. Spoiled by gypsy kids in the play area spitting at other children and trying to take over the equipment

As always the Rose & Crown at Portway have delivered on great food and service. Our first meal out since lockdown and our wedding anniversary as well. A great selection of starter/mains/puddings to choice from - much more than some other restaurants I looked at also! Unfortunately the main I wanted had sold out by then time I had arrived but the main I chose after - steak, was lovely! The only criticisms I have was, Drinks to start took quite a while and when they arrived, one was wrong. The other was there was a large party nearby that had unsupervised children running around. Which unfortunately ruined the atmosphere for us given the circumstances that are ongoing in the world.

Meal for 3 for our sons 18th birthday, but 1 meal was cold... sent it back asking just to heat back up in microwave .... waited 20 mins by then 2 other guests finished food.... had to get waitress attention, brought out new plated meal ... guess what colder than first time... must have been sat waiting to come out of kitchen for ages ... Shame as we have been before few times and like service and food.... disappointed ....

The dirty chicken burger was sooo good, huge though! Thoroughly enjoyed our food and drinks and it was quite quiet, current restrictions were really well managed and staff very friendly. A mixed bag of service ranging from too attentive to slow throughout the day, but really good overall and we will definitely be back!!

We booked a table for 4 people after our small wedding. The food was lovely. I didn't notice any other customers. It was the first time my elderly parent's had been out of lock down, and we were pleased with the measures in place to keep social distancing standards. We felt comfortable and enjoyed the experience. Would certainly return at a later date.

The first time we have been here as a family and also came with our friends for a meal. It was also the first time out for a meal since lockdown and we had such an amazing time. We had the three course set Sunday menu and the food was delicious and really good portion sizes. The staff were so friendly and helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. We can’t wait to come back again.

Nice atmosphere,
Food not the best, steak very tough, not a good cut of meat.
Soup full of coriander and very over powering.
Service was good.

Would have been outstanding if the fish in the fish and chips had not been overcooked making the batter hard while the fish was dry.

Because of the covid virus the menu was very restricted, having said that, the Sunday roast was excellent. I can’t remember ever having a meal at the Rose and Crown that was a disappointment.
