Review on The Rose & Crown
The enterprising Peach Pubs Company chose this town centre inn as their first venture and they now have half-a-dozen revitalised pubs dotted around Central England. 'Eat, Drink, Sleep' is the motto here.
The Rose & Crown sports a jazzed-up contemporary interior, complete with leather sofas, elegant open fireplaces, vibrant red colour schemes and plenty of buzz. Not many pubs open for breakfast, but this one provides the full works. You can also graze on tapas and antipasti from the 'deli board' right through the day.
If you are looking for a full meal, kick off with devilled whitebait and saffron aïoli or potted duck with toasted brioche before moving on to pan-fried sea bass with artichokes and sauté potatoes or braised neck of lamb with polenta cake and Mediterranean vegetables. Sausage and mash 'of the week' is a hearty traditional standby, while salads and pasta dishes come in two sizes (smoked chicken and chilli tagliatelle, for example).
The flexible attitude and fair pricing extends to the choice of drinks, which includes a choice of real ales and a short zingy list of modern wines featuring around half-a-dozen by the glass.
