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.

Booked a table with my new Barons Pub card for an anniversary meal. We were seated in a near empty restaurant by a pleasant young man but the place we were given was in a very small alcove with an equaly small table behind a very bright light. I wanted to change table but wifey said no. Apart from that, the meal was excellent. I had the mushroom wellington with loads of fresh vegetables while the wife had chicken and rice. Both were plentiful and hot. The gin cocktails were fine too. Pud was a delight. I had the Eton mess with grilled white chocolate and wifey had the chocolate and coconut tart. Coffee was served to us by a young American guy from Baltimore. He served it straight out of a butler training book style. What a gent. Overall, a 5 star visit and I will return again but this time will request a table out of the dark recess, it may be a great place for a clandestine MI6 meeting but not for me.

We booked this restaurant to treat the fathers of our family on Father’s Day. There were 12 of us in total, the age range between 2 years to 83 years old. We were easily accommodated, and the restaurant was not uncomfortably busy. The service was excellent. The food was very good, hot and served in good time. The children enjoyed the play area, which made life easier for us! I would recommend this restaurant.
