The place was spotless very clean. The food was was excellent . Steaks and the Dessert a little expensive. The waitress and waiters very good service and professional. The only problem had to wait nearly an hour for our food. The place was not over busy not much of an atmosphere. Overhaul good evening and would go back again.

This seems to be a place mostly for 18-30 year olds and so we found it noisy with background music and exuberant youth. Disappointed that only 1 out of3 draught beers was available. Food was good and service cheerful, friendly and smiley.

We have been going to the Rose and Crown for 20 years to meet up with old work colleagues, but this was the first time we had been since Sep 2020.
Menu has changed and the choice was poor as was the quality of the food.
Won't be rushing back

The same standard as usual but would like to see a bigger choice of starters And main courses now the covid rules have changed. We come to the Rose and Crown portway quite often and have eaten all the choices and would like to have a choice of something different.

Fabulous food and really nice staff. Friendly and approachable and nothing was too much trouble.
Only downside was the noise generated by children who seemed to be unsupervised by their parents.

The food, as always was good with generous portions. The service was unfortunately poor and lets the place down, as it did on my last visit too.
The waiting staff all seem you g and inexperienced or poorly trained.
Food was mixed up between 2 tables with little apology, used glasses were not cleared from tables and dessert menus offered but not brought.
Shame as it’s a bad reflection on the place generally.

I have only just started going out again and was not sure about the place as it had been nearly two years since I last frequented the place. Unbelievable, very nicely turned out and the outdoor eating and play area was beautiful. The staff were extremely pleasant and very helpful - it was a joy to dine there. Didn’t have to wait long for the food which was good

Initial service was excellent and mains arrived, took slightly longer than normal but food was spot on. Then when table was cleared was asked if we’d like a dessert and that’s the last we seen of the staff, so gave up on the dessert and had to find someone to pay. Although it was the England game so noise levels fluctuated which wasn’t an issue but this may explain some of the service issues. Will be going back as this definitely wasn’t the normal

The food was lovely. It was a shame that the service let them down.
We were seated at our table then had to wait ages for someone to come over just to take our drinks order. They weren't busy, only 3 tables in the restaurant. Ok the England match was on but that was no excuse.
Not one member of staff came over during our meal to check that everything was OK which should be standard in a restaurant.
Saying that, I would go back as we enjoyed our food.

This was our first time in a restaurant since closedown and although nervous were immediately put at ease by the by way the staff conducted themselves and made sure that guidelines were observed. We were a party of 6 and we came for lunch, so the restaurant was fairly quiet which we all appreciated. The food was delicious, arrived hot and well presented. All staff were attentive and friendly.

Not suitable for a family meal with young children. Very very busy. Very loud disco music in garden with people partying. Seemed a different pub from how it used to be. I guess owners need to make up for lost income since covid.
