I had the beer cooked roast chicken with all the trimmings and my friend the roast beef, both the meals were fantastic with lots of flavour, good quality meat and lots of tasty veg (roast pots are the best I've ever eaten out) all cooked perfectly with the biggest Yorkshire pudding I've ever seen. I had a couple of Gin... More

We dropped in for a drink and were very happy with the beers, wines, and range of gins on offer The first surprise for us was the restaurant section and the clean cut look of the decor. Not too many tables and not too many chairs around each table The menu was just different enough to make it interesting but... More

Popped in on the way to Oceknden Manor for lunch. The Sunday lunch was tasty, good value and in a very pretty little pub.

When we decided to get married, there was really only one place for us to celebrate! Almost a year ahead of the big day, we were provided with menu choice, drinks and plans for the day. It was great to have the team involved in the build up to the day. Our wedding day couldn't have been better, the pub... More

We went for dinner last night with friends. We shared the salt and pepper squid for appetizers which were delicious followed by rib eye steak and beef dripping chips. I can honestly say I had the best steak I have had in years and I eat a lot of steak! It was cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. It just... More

Relatively new to West Sussex, we had not been to the Rose and Crown until deciding to try it for a light,weekday lunch. Sitting beside the roaring fire, we enjoyed delicious smoked salmon with avocado on sourdough bread. And just to round things off, we shared a sticky toffee pudding. So impressed, we made a booking for Sunday lunch.We were... More

Enjoyed another tasty late lunch in one of our local pubs with family. The menu was a blend of the lounge and restaurant menus. Fish cake starter and Guinea fowl main were excellent washed down with some good value quality wine. Others enjoyed the Welsh rarebit and bacon and the Burger. The service was great and the decor is stylish... More

Wanted to go somewhere relatively local to me for a nice late lunch. The menu is short but with enough variety to cater for most tastes. The service is very good, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. A nice wine list just rounds off the eating experience. It was an excellent way to spend a lovely relaxed afternoon.

Thank Seetim
