My wife and I had our Christmas Day lunch at the Rose & Crown and could not have had a more welcoming visit. The staff were very friendly and one of our waiters Robin, was very attentive and polite, although to be fair they were all lovely. The food was excellent and the character of the old building made for a memorable Xmas day.
