    Question Rose and Crown- recommendations???

    We are going to the Rose and Crown on our trip next week. This was my husbands pick and I was able to get an ADR. I know that England isn’t known for great food, so I was looking for recommendations on what to order. I am pretty picky and absolutely hate fish, so the fish and chips are out. Anybody have a favorite?

    I don't do much fish in my diet. So while my DH got the fish and chips, I ended up getting a cottage pie which is similar to shepherd's but made with beef instead of lamb. I enjoyed it. I also don't really enjoy beer, but Rose and Crown has 2 ciders on tap!!

    For dessert, we opted for sticky toffee pudding which I enjoyed.

    For the menu, check this out:

    i'm a picky eater in general and i won't touch fish either. i had the grilled steak (i think thats what its called) and it was very good. it has a beer sauce on it but i'm sure you could get it without. i also had chips instead of mashed potatoes and they were reaaaallllyyy good. it came with yorkshire pudding too. my dad had the cottage pie and loved it too.
    he had the bread pudding and i had the apple crumble for dessert and both were excellent. the rolls they give you ar really good too. lol now i'm super hungry. let us know what you had and how it was

    I went with the Beef Stew and absolutely loved it.
    I think Rose and Crown does not get enough credit at all. Of the restaurants I've been to it is one of my favorites.

    I'm also a picky eater so that's why I liked their fish. I'm not one to try other foods that may upset my stomach. My DH had the bangers and mash and liked it. The beef stew looks good. Or order an appetizer for your meal and then get a dessert. I do that a lot!!

    Enjoy!

    I'm a picky fish eater, but I love their fish and chips. The apple crumble is very good. I'm not a beer drinker, but I sometimes opt for a glass of white wine or just a soda. I've had steak and ale pie here in London, and found that it doesn't really have an ale or beer flavor, but is very good. You might want to see if that is an option there. Think of it as a really good beef pot pie.

    I agree with the other posts... Rose and Crown doesn't get enough credit. It is a great restaurant (for that matter - England doesn't get enough credit for its culinary tastes as a nation either. I've spent some time in and around London and I've never had a bad meal)

    The recommendations most of you made are excellent. Cottage pie, Beef Stew, Bangers (sausages) and Mashed potatoes. I was in WDW last May and Rose and Crown was one of my favorite meals!

    I haven't eaten there in awhile, but I do know if you want a delicious drink that isn't beer... try a Welsch Dragon. Minus mint if you don't like mint (i sure don't!)

    It suffers from a poor reputation, but often that reputation is not warranted IMHO.

    Thanks for all the ideas. I also don’t drink so I guess I wouldn’t make a great Brit. No offense on the comment about “England not being known for great food”. I didn’t mean it was bad, I just don’t really know about any English foods besides for Fish & Chips. It is just not something you see a lot of where I live. I figured there is a lot more to English food than Fish & Chips so that is why I asked. Besides, it’s not like the USA is know for its food either. Every foreigner I ever met thinks all we eat is Mc Donalds. And hey they are right about one thing, I really do like Mc Donalds.

    its a thick cream thats traditionaly made in devon and cornwall (south west england) and is delicious on scones (american biscits) with strawberry jam, and with a cup of tea. its called a cream tea the garden view lounge in grand floridian serves this on their 'afternoon tea' menu!
