The folks at the Rose n Crown always treat us like part of the family. Awesome crew that are always up for a chat and a laugh and the food is always on point for a hearty pub grub

Ideal setting for a group of friends catching up over dinner with its friendly atmosphere & staff. All meals were beautifully cooked & presented & the house wine impressed. One of our group had a birthday & Stuart went the extra mile presenting her share of the platter named & with a candle! She was delighted! Thank you. They'll all... More

Great pub food. I had a scotch fillet steak which was tender and cooked as I ordered it. The chips were crispy and tasty. The pepper sauce was flavoursome and as expected peppery. My wife had Spicy chicken salad which was flavoursome and not over spicy. Both meals were generous proportions. The publican was friendly and when asked, gave some... More

a proper English pub in NZ. They serve proper beers and have excellent pub food - but be prepared for a bit of a wait when they are busy - which is frequent.

Let's be frank, the Rose and Crown is a pub, not a fine dining establishment. Having said that, my rump steak was perfectly cooked, as tender as rump can be and overall was reasonable value. What's more, the salad and chips were all part of the price unlike some supposedly more up market restaurants in the area that charge top... More

Service was very good there was 6 of us and we all commented on the really good food and certainly value for money. You collect your own meal which was no trouble and food was very nicely presented and I guess this keeps the cost down. Would recommend for a nice relaxing meal out and very affordable.

My husband and I along with a friend have just been to this establishment today for lunch. On ordering drinks at the bar we asked about a lunch menu and were told that this was displayed on the blackboard (no manual menu). We ordered and paid at the bar. My husband and friend had no issues with their orders which... More

A traditional English Pub in Palmerston North sounded an ideal place for a Sunday evening meal. They didn't have a Sunday roast on the menu, but there was plenty of other choice that ought to have satisfied. My wife and I ordered the lamb shanks with kumara mash and vegetables or salad. Our suspicions were initially raised when we discovered... More
