We stopped off at the R&C en route back up North. First thing that struck us was the friendliness of the staff who showed us to our table and looked after our every need for the rest of the evening. The next impression was the quality of the wine list - we went for a Sancerre at the price you'd... More

We stayed at The Rose and Crown following a wedding and were very happy with the room and facilities. Very reasonably priced as well. Also the owner made every effort to make sure we had a comfortable stay which always makes a pleasant change.

We stayed here for a wedding this weekend and it was lovely. We arrived early so we had lunch which was excellent. The room was nice and clean and the owner was very friendly. We would definitely stay there again if we were visiting friends in Ashbourne. Also the food and accommodation were both excellent value for money.

Had lunch here as we were walking in the area. Nice pub/restaurant. Staff were friendly and efficient. We had baguettes with bacon, brie and cranberry / steak which were excellent.
