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.

Where is The Rose & Crown located?

In the picturesque town of Romaldkirk, near the castle of Barnard in the beautiful rural Teesdale, this 18th century coaching inn stands beside the church of Saxony in the breathtaking countryside of the Durham and Yorkshire dales.

What cuisine is on offer at The Rose & Crown?

The Menu's represent the beautiful rural surroundings with an eye for detail, both in traditional and contemporary cooking techniques. 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.

What makes a meal at The Rose & Crown unique?

The fantastic kitchen team produces great tasting food that uses the best of local produce and ingredients of outstanding origin and from sources with high standards of animal welfare.
