The Rose & Crown Inn, which has a history that can be traced back to the early 18th century, was taken over by local businessman Peter Harrison who has embarked upon a remarkable project to totally refurbish the pub and restaurant areas, as well as creating four new en-suite rooms finished to the highest standards. The aim was to create the perfect bar, restaurant and accommodation that would appeal to both villagers and bed & breakfast guests alike. The Rose & Crown is now run by Peter’s daughter, Sarah, whose emphasis is very much on offering quality accommodation combined with great food. Sarah is very proud of what has been achieved and is really pleased with the amazing feedback from guests who find the accommodation to be of the highest quality. The restaurant provides a relaxing atmosphere, and a broad range food and refreshments throughout the day and evening, including morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, and evening meals. Facilities in the en-suite bedrooms include flat screen TV, inbuilt Bluetooth music system and free Wi-Fi. All rooms also have complimentary tea and coffee facilities, and guests can have a freshly prepared English or continental breakfast.
