The Rose & Crown
There are few things more welcoming that a glowing log fire in the quintessential cosy English pub and this is precisely what greets you when you enter the Rose and Crown. Once settled in one of the snug armchairs it would be very tempting not to move for the rest of the evening. However, this would mean missing the oak panelled dining room bathed in romantic candlelight and, of course, the wonderful food served there. The four course menu could start with seared king scallops with leek risotto and crispy bacon followed by a soup course then pan fried woodpigeon breast with lentil puree, roast chestnuts and juniper berry sauce. Hot sticky walnut tart with vanilla ice cream rounds off proceedings.
