I was shooting a wedding in the Belle Epique next door, and the bride was getting ready in the Rose & Crown hotel rooms in the morning. Unlike many hotels, the rooms were quite bright so great for makeup. If you're thinking of staying here on your wedding morning your makeup artist will love the light! There's a decent sized...

We used to visit Knutsford from Northwich every Friday night the first stop would be the Rose and Crown, real ale, friendly staff, good bar snacks and good food in the restaurant. Not sure what has happened, we went into the Rose and Crown in December 2016 and the first thing I noticed was a strong smell from the toilets... More

A very good new menu surviving quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of choice whether wish to settle for just starters or a grand 3 course meal. Choice of wine or beer and suitable for families or couples with pleasant service

Overall very mixed... A very nice, traditional old english pub type venue... The food was very varied - we started off with the mixed english platter - the scotch egg was tremendous, the pork pie ok but the sausage roll pretty terrible.... For mains I had the short rib which instead of being soft, melt in your mouth tender, was... More

Live in Knutsford, work rest and play in Knutsford's finest, fully intended to eat in here tonight, two reasons why we went off to Eastern Revive, first off, 'loud' group of 5 with an annoying whining dog! Didn't realise this place was dog friendly? Didn't just annoy us, but a couple of people moved because of it! Secondly..... dry white... More

Had yet an another outstanding evening at this lovely restaurant. The quality of the produce is very high and delicious. I had scallops and steak which was amazing. Staff is young and dynamic and very polite. Really enjoyed it very much. Location is great right in the middle of a very pretty town. Will definitely go back soon.

Lovely English traditional pub and guesthouse. Staff friendly. Room was good size and quite given the location. Probably noisy in summer as beer garden outside the window (room 6). Water pressure in shower was terrible ...but water was hot. Breakfast was average. Lovely fireplace in bar. I would stay again.

The meat here is succulent and simply wonderful. It's not your average pub, as it's owned by the same folks as run the Belle Epoque next door, and the food is just as good but much better value. Service is ok. I always have the beef, as it's simply the best in the county

After reading an article in the Knutsford Guardian we thought we would pop back here after not going for several months. The new menu didn't disappoint, but it was great to see the Porterhouse steak back on the menu and as good as ever. Service was friendly and informative, nothing was too much trouble.

We always pay a visit to this place when we're in Knutsford; it's a lovely charming old place, and the staff are always great. Not sure why they've stopped serving cocktails though? Sort it out! 😊

Dear Biskit Thank you for your review. We have never served cocktails, we served "ChopTails"......geddit? No, and nobody else did, a great idea assigned to the marketing dustbin. We will be offering cocktails in the Summer, but being honest we are a 400 year old pub, Porn Star martinis aren't our thing. Get yourself involved with our Gin range and... More
