    Great freindly atmosphere, staff obviously want customers to have a great experience. Food was lovely, fresh, seasonal, well cooked my only feedback would be to add complimentary bread. On some dishes (I had fig/cheese starter and Aubergine main) the portions are small which would have been fine if there had been bread or salad to accompany - I felt that there wasn't quite enough to be filling. However everything tasted lovely

    Friendly attentive staff, very aware of allergies as one of our party is coeliac and almost all of the menu is gluten free! It was lovely to hear about the pub’s new owners and how they’ve renovated the pub and started serving incredible scratch made food sourced locally from small producers. The menu is small so you know it’s freshly prepared. Cocktails were moreish and dessert (also gluten free but you wouldn’t know otherwise) was sublime!! Cannot recommend highly enough. Simply outstanding.

    Really decent quality, well presented food and good service. The pub has recently been refurbished and the owners have done a great job of making it a much more inviting space. Being picky I would happily see the burgers go off the dinner menu and include one or two more main courses and it would be nice to see a wider wine menu.

    Absolutely fantastic place, all been fully refurbished to a very high standard, there's a lovely atmosphere in there. The young lady that served us was so polite and attentive she was able to answer any questions we had, with a genuine smile on her face. The food was outstanding it's all freshly prepared, and there has clearly been a lot of thought put into the menu. The desserts are out of this world it was hands down the nicest dessert I've ever eaten. Highly recommend going here for a meal

    2nd lovely visit to the Rose & Crown at Hartwell, and another lovely experience. Attention to detail in customer service, remembering our names even though it was only our 2nd visit, bringing a cushion for our 93yo mother, was all above and beyond. The food is exquisite and all locally sourced, not the cheapest meal but you do get what you pay for.

    We all had three courses and they were all amazing. The staff were very attentive and the atmosphere of the bar and restaurant was lovely. The decor is really beautiful as well. We will definitely be back to try the others dishes that we were torn between! All the desserts were delicious. We know as we ordered one of each and tried them all!!

    After all the fabulous reviews since reopening we were not disappointed. As a GF diner I always find choice limited but not here - there were only 2 items on the whole menu that I couldn't have, and I was beyond excited that there was a cheesecake for dessert! I ate soooooo much - nibbles to share in the garden in the sunshine, then starters, a main and dessert... and a GF ale :-) My only suggestions would be to have an alternative cut of steak aside from the rump - I love a well-bred flavoursome rare steak and I was cooked beautifully but as with all rump there is a sizeable fat layer and I would have preferred a filet; plus maybe the option of a more summery main course ... however there were no complaints from our group and ALL the plates were empty on each course. I will definitely be back and trying some more options. Definitely recommend and thanks to them for having such a wide choice for GF :-)

    The host Belinda was vet engaging about this venture with Mark the Chef. A really nice introduction and chat about the local produce suppliers. The food menu whilst limted was really enjoyable. Both my wife and myself really enjoyed the food. Beautifully cooked. Its great to have an enthusiastic couple who want to make the Rose and Crown successful. We look forward to the new menu and booking our next meal.

We will return to the R & C again to sample their other delicious sounding dishes. We highly recommend you visit this lovely restaurant, you won't be disappointed.

    Visited for the first time on Friday and thoroughly impressed. Produce is all local and excellent. Staff incredibly friendly and welcoming. We had 5 meals, breads and 4 desserts and we all really enjoyed everything. So glad to have somewhere so good that we can walk to. We will be regulars, for sure! (Promote the local produce more! We absolutely loved how so much is so locally sourced!) fantastic addition to Hartwell!
