2 for 1 at The Rose And Crown

The Rose & Crown is believed to have been built as an ale house in 1810 by Edward Knight the brother of Jane Austen. Edward was Jane Austen’s third eldest brother, as a boy he was adopted by the Knight family who were wealthy relatives of the Austen family. He took their name and went on to inherit the estates of Chawton, Steventon in Hampshire and Godmersham Park in Kent.

At The Rose & Crown they are passionate about providing fresh, tasty, wholesome food which they are proud to serve our customers. Where our produce comes from is equally important to us and they ensure they use as much local and seasonal produce as possible.

When you come and visit them please read the boards up in the pub which details where your meal that day has come from. Ensuring their food is of the highest standard and also supporting local farmers and butchers is really important to them.

Their dessert menu changes on a daily basis as the desserts are made fresh so please check the daily dessert board in the pub.

Important Information

Please note: the tastecard discount is not available on Sundays as the main a la carte menu is not served on this day. The tastecard discount is not available on bank holidays. This restaurant only accepts one tastecard per table, you must book in advance.

    We couldn't contact the pub by phone, but decided to leave a voice mail and chance it. Such a pleasant surprise. Friendly service. Delightful pub. Pub bar crowded when we arrived, but restaurant part overlooking garden quiet and very nice. The waitress explained that her mum uses her own recipes for home made burgers and pies. I had the beef burger with cheese, fries and salad (£12.95, my rating 9.5/10). My partner had beef and porter pie with fries and veg (£12.95, rating 10/10). We ended up sharing. Large portions, clearly fresh and local produce. Will definitely go back. Keen to try all their pies! "

    We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children.
    The place was surprisingly quiet for a Saturday lunchtime, but I expect that will change as the new owners and chef certainly impressed us.

    The staff were friendly and the menu, although not large, was equalled by as many dishes on the specials board. We only ate mains and all enjoyed them. The food was good and in very generous portions. Although no specific children's menu (at this time) we were able to order a child sized portion of a standard meal without any trouble and the staff were equally accommodating of us simply giving the other child some of our food on a separate plate. They were also very prepared for us to go off menu with requests for additional vegetables.

    There was an error with one part of our order, but the staff were very apologetic and brought the correct item quickly and without fuss.

    We would very happily go back and hopefully with a larger appetite to try starters and / or desserts.

    There were changing facilities for children in nappies, which was another plus. "
