Set in the lush, green countryside of Thorpe, this beautiful “chocolate box” pub is everything a good, traditional English pub should be. The Rose and Crown offers great food, all day, everyday; our delicious menu complemented by perfect pints and a great wine list from around the world as well as a fabulous Sunday roast served from 12:00 - 17:00. The Rose and Crown is family friendly too, with a kids menu, colouring competition with monthly prizes and a great play area in the rear garden. Our beautifully-kept gardens and large patio area are perfect for alfresco dining. In the summer months, the outside bar is open, selling chilled bottle beers and wine and taking orders for ice-creams, snacks and food for outside dining. Situated 15 minutes from the M25 and 10 minutes from Thorpe Park, The Rose and Crown makes an ideal meeting place.

We arrived to a very busy atmosphere but was greeted promptly by a very friendly member of the team who took us straight to our table. As soon as all of our party arrived our food came out very soon after. They were very accommodating to our dietary requests and the food was delicious. The whole of the party thought the same. We had the festive set menu and in comparison to other places the choices were so much better to the others we had looked at, there was definitely something for all tastes. And was great value for money ! There was a singing act on, Jade Thornton who was fantastic and really added to our Christmas night out,Everyone was singing along . I had heard great things about eating here but this exceeded our expectations, the whole mix of a friendly Christmas atmosphere, amazing food and great staff ! We will definitely come here again! Thankyou for getting us into the Christmas spirit!

Unfortunately my party of 6 left before we had chance to sample food because we were seated so close to the door that it was uncomfortably cold! The restaurant was fully booked so they were unable to change our table even though it was early (4.30pm) and there were very few other people in the pub. My overall rating of 1 star is obviously not to do with the food which I have found absolutely fine in the past. I would recommend this pub to others but during the winter months just check where you will be sitting!

Very cosy pub with great atmosphere. Service was very friendly. Food was good although chicken fajitas could have done with a little more chicken as portion quite small.

Vegetables were all under cooked and crunchy. Very noisy.

We booked our table for 4 on line and it was very simple to do. Also received a confirmation email back which was reassuring. We all ordered different meals and the place was fully booked with at least 2 large Xmas parties. Yet we still received very well presented and cooked meals within a reasonable time. The food was beautifully cooked especially my salmon fajitas. Looked beautiful inside with the Xmas decorations and the people serving us were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely go back.
