Our food was as lovely as ever but the portions were smaller than normal. The open table booking website told us that the rose and crown was fully booked fri/sat/ and Sunday. In fact is was far from it. Its a very spacious pub and ther were many empty tables. Even when we left at 2.15pm there were only 4 people in one side of the bar area and about 6 tables taken in the restaurant.

A birthday lunch out with friends. We had ‘sandwiches’ which came with fries. We had different ones and they were all delicious and original. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Appalling food! Chicken burger, hash browns and calamari dripping in dirty oil.

Sent back but waitress stated nothing wrong with food... it was vile and I cannot believe the chef could even send that out.

Waited ages for replacement for my daughter by which time I had eaten my food. This chicken was cold inside!!!

Didn’t bother complaining again, I won’t be returning, such a shame food used to be great here.

A great Restaurant to visit. Clean, tidy and great ambiance. The staff we very accommodating and had no problem getting a modification to an item on the menu selection. The Batter on the fish I ordered was slightly burnt but the large portion made up for this.

As we were 4 senior adults adhering to covid guidelines our table for 4 was allocated amidst a very lively hen party of some 20/30 ladies who were not adhering to guidelines. We did ask to be allocated another table and after some time we were given another table in the bar area away from the restaurant. This was very acceptable to us but disappointing that the organisation of the large group of ladies into tables of 6 immediately on their arrival, would have provided a slightly quieter safer environment and we should not have needed to asked to be moved. As the bar area where we ate was empty we could have been moved immediately but it seemed to take some time.
The food was good and when moved the staff attentive and we have eaten here on numerous occasions.

Booking a table was easy and the food was fantastic. On arrival I asked if we could have a table outside but under cover, I was told all the tables were reserved. For the duration of my time there four of those tables remained empty. We would have enjoyed our meal better if we hadn’t had to sit on benches and feel that the better tables should not have remained unused for such a long period of time.

Ordered two pizzas, rocket side salad & dirty fries. Good wasn’t of great quality, & seemed very basic - the salad & fries appeared thrown together and had no dressing.
Service was fast & friendly, room was very busy & loud. Didn’t stay longer than needed. Disappointed, as we had heard good things about this pub, but food was lacking in taste.

We arrived early for our booking, and this created no issues at all.
Attentive staff took our drinks and main course orders very quickly, these were also served speedily.
After waiting for what seemed like an eternity, we had to request desert menus, for which our orders were taken iand served n a timely manner.
The quality of all of the dishes served was excellent, probably the best cod and chips I've tasted in a long time!
Overall, a really pleasant afternoon was spent in lovely surroundings with excellent food.

Overall everything was good, apart from when we came to pay they wouldn't except a £50.00 note which is legal tender. After reassuring the manger she took our money, as I explained I work in banking. They should have proper equipment to check or train staff in these circumstances.

Staff were the key to this experience being so delightful. The food was great, let down slightly by cheap sauce sachets for horseradish and ketchup. The menus could have been better presented than a sheet of paper little menu cards would have been much more fitting. Having said that the staff were so friendly and polite and the food was very tasty!

First class staff! Seriously shouldn't be underrated they couldn't have done more to make our visit special!
Management should really reward their team as this attention to customers is actually quite rare!
Impressed, after 20+ years in 5* hospitality industry I'm quite critical of customer service but theirs was faultless! Kudos

Food is great but got overcharged for a double gin and tonic. Wait staff were confused by their own receipt and couldn’t explain the prices. We were charged £10.90 for a double gin and tonic because on the receipt we had been charged for a single gin, a double gin and the tonic. This drink cost more than the cocktails we had. Also given that it wasn’t full to capacity we had to wait a long time for our orders to be taken. We were then told that the kitchen and bar were shut before we asked for the bill and yet other tables were still ordering and sitting drinking when we left. Seems inconsistent which is such a shame as I had recommended it as I had been in the past pre pandemic and had great food, drinks and service. Disappointed overall.

Our table in the restaurant was situated in a very dark corner and by the door for the staff leading out to the garden. We understood the door needed to be open due to COVID restrictions, but it was quite chilly there, even though it was a nice day outside. We found a spare table in the “bar” area which was so much better. The food and service was very good.

Excellent service and food as always.
Ate indoors (as this is what we prefer) and were the only ones there for first hour. Outside was very busy.
We always have a good meal, usually steak. They must use a great butcher.
Would thoroughly recommend.
