As always ambience, service & food great. Had a couple of the specials which were delicious (lamb cutlets & skate wing). Would definitely recommend.

Overall 2food service ambience

Ate here yesterday for Father's Day. Admittedly it was a very hot day but the temperature inside the pub was unbearable. So much so that after seeing another table do so, we decided to follow suit and eat dessert outside.
The food was also disappointing and no where near up the standard of previous visits. The prawn cocktail was lacking in prawns and the ones that were there were small, frozen shrimp with absolutely no flavour and a rubbery texture. To be fair other members of the family had the squid starter and said that was fine. Main courses were slightly better and I did enjoy the steak. Dessert was a lemon pot that tasted like lemon cleaner and a bowl of ice cream that when served was completely melted and had to be sent back. All in all a disappointing and uncomfortable meal. Will not go back and will not recommend.

Had a pleasant lunch with a friend. Friendly service, food great as always, love their prawn & scallop linguine, have it every time I go, never tire of it.....just wish the portion was bigger, that's cos I love it and I'm greedy! Look forward to my next visit.

Nice venue (we both used to work there!) within easy walking distance, pleasant staff and good and substantial food. Didn't notice the cost, which probably says it all.

Have only been to The Rose twice but have enjoyed both visits. It looks very pretty from the outside and looks and was most inviting. It was difficult to choose from the menu as it all sounded good! The food, each time, was delicious and well cooked.
The service was excellent with friendly and helpful staff. On both occasions the pub/restaurant was busy, but the food arrived hot and without too much of a wait. If I have one complaint it is that it is a small building and because of this the tables do tend to be squashed together which can result in other diners having to move to make way for your exit. However, it will not stop me going again.

This was recommended to me for a Sunday lunch everything nice but was expecting more as there is so many places that do this sort of thing the soup lacked seasoning the potatoes tasted nice but I like my roasted to be more roasted than boiled looking also the bread n butter pudding was very doughy and dense and wast really to my liking
The staff were fantastic and very attentive I would recommend this place and say it was ok but I wouldn't rush to go back myself and think it was more run of the mill food than I expected it to be unfortunately

The Rose is local and convenient, with a large car park. It is extremely popular and always busy, we were lucky to get a last minute table. Using the Open Table booking system is great and you get an instant response to your booking. I can thoroughly recommend The Rose for an easy dining option.

Quite expensive for what it is. Been here half a dozen times but today wasn't as good as usual. Avocado on a starter wasn't ripe enough. Should have sent it back but it was my Mum's dish and as I was treating her for Mother's Day, I think she was embarrassed. At these prices I resent paying for side dishes.
