The meat here is succulent and simply wonderful. It's not your average pub, as it's owned by the same folks as run the Belle Epoque next door, and the food is just as good but much better value. Service is ok. I always have the beef, as it's simply the best in the county

After reading an article in the Knutsford Guardian we thought we would pop back here after not going for several months. The new menu didn't disappoint, but it was great to see the Porterhouse steak back on the menu and as good as ever. Service was friendly and informative, nothing was too much trouble.

We always pay a visit to this place when we're in Knutsford; it's a lovely charming old place, and the staff are always great. Not sure why they've stopped serving cocktails though? Sort it out! 😊

My husband and I took advantage of the 50% off deal for January. We had the chateaubriand steak, normally £65 for 2. The steak was very chewy with a sinew running through it. We thought, not fillet steak. I have cooked better at home. So disappointed, we won't be going again. Certainly if we had paid £65 it would have... More

This Pub is situated in the very heart of Knutsford and is surrounded by many busy bars and Restaurants and numerous boutique Shops The room was very adequate and as we had booked it last minute it was at a very competitive rate. The room we had (Room 6) was a little tired and in need of a lick of... More

We dined here last night with friends, it was excellent from start to finish. Great to start with a couple of pints of Wheetwood ale. On a cold January night the atmosphere was perfect, just what you want from a traditional pub, roaring fires and a friendly welcome. The food was excellent, particularly the 20oz rib eye. The food was... More

I wouldn't recommend this please for food. Their signature dishes are poor. It's a popular place and locals recommend it. I wouldn't. I eat out a lot and I'm not impressed. Pity because staff , menu and service good.

We had dinner at the Rose and Crown last week and I feel I must write to say how much we enjoyed the food and to say thank you to the staff. I have been several times before and have chosen the hake for the last two visits. It really is a super dish and was beautifully cooked and presented... More

Built in 1641, there are few older pubs in the country. The interior is what you would expect; redolent with history. While much of the trade is based around the restaurant aspect of the business, the bar is not neglected. Three cask beers, typically locally-brewed, are featured and the quality lately has been very good indeed. There is a healthy... More
