It is with the highest level of disgust that I write this review on this place, that tries to pass itself off as "restaurant" but falls short miserably.

Where to begin? My family and I went here last night and had tremendous difficulty firstly in finding a place to park, as there was rubbish strewn across the entire car park. Not a good start. My wife suggested that we try somewhere else but I insisted that we persevere after hearing about their reputedly excellent "2 meals for a fiver" deal.

Upon entering, we were greeted - in Punjabi - by a smarmy sort indeed. He THREW the menus at us and insisted we speak in a South Asian dialect - "or not at all". My wife is well-travelled so was acquiescing to this; I was however furious and demanded to see the management. This was met with a hiss: "Diss is manager" he said, as he pointed to the brass elephant statue on the other side of the room.

At that point, the roof started to leak even though it wasn't
raining and rainwater isn't brown nor viscous. My wife notified the waiter about this, and he quickly disappeared into the kitchen. Another worker came out shortly after and asked us to move tables, because we were at risk of "getting infectionings" from the leak. The stench from the putrid liquid was revolting and not something I will easily forget. At this point the surly waiter reappeared, clearly he had forgotten to bring the bucket so - lo and behold - reached for my son's dinner plate and used that instead, to scoop up the disgusting mess on the floor. He then disappeared into the kitchen with it and goodness knows what happened to it.

We made our excuses and left without paying.

This is beautiful pub with beautiful british settings. Me and my acquaintance DelBoy visit frequently because it is much more lovely than the closeby Merryboys pub. Merryboys is not merry place there is no river at merryboys only outbreak of polio.

Come to rose and crowns if you want merry place.

Mr Porog is very correct I enjoy this place on several occasions the Tikka Masala is particularly delicious and is only 8 with a beverage. I am English but the food is not too spicy for me. Very good value from a family run pub I'm going to bring all the family when I arrive every week

This is a very exclusive British establishment offering the finest Indian cuisine at affordable prices. It is open from 11am to 11pm Monday to Friday and 10pm Sunday. They have four 4 large televisions costing many thousands of pounds that show live sport such as British tennis, Wimbledon, Olympics and news and weather throughout the day. Sameer is the owner he is very nice gentleman who was born in London. They also have a nice garden for small childrens and pets and free live band and fireworks during Diwali. Tickets are only 5 plus 5 booking fee.

Closed at the moment following a "mystery" fire when the landlord went bust.

That said, a scaffold clad burnt out shell is an improvement on what was there before and I hope it remains that way.

New landlord, friendly and will do anything to please. Classic traditional village pub. Great tasting food at reasonable prices. Certainly worth a visit!!!

One of Peter Kaye's universal truths is you never see Cup-a-Soup served in a bowl. Sorry Peter, I have!

We should have guessed and gone elsewhere when we arrived on the third Friday before Christmas and the dining room was empty.

The Rose and Crown served the worst pub meal I have ever eaten. The Cup-a-Soup was bad, the carvery was a bit better but only just and dessert was inedible. An individual Christmas pudding with "brandy sauce". How anyone can go so wrong with a packet sauce astounds me. It tasted as if it had been made with a whole cellar of salt (or worse). Our complaint was met with an indignant "It's got brandy in it!" and it was replaced with a "fresh" fruit salad with custard. The unpeeled and diced, including the core, apple was fresh but not sure what else.
