Review on The Rose & Crown at Romaldkirk

A huge stone fireplace, old oak beams and shuttered windows set the tone in the bar of the Rose & Crown, where a log fire burns in the grate and a grandfather clock keeps time. Lunches and suppers are served in the Brasserie, which is suitably decked out with candles in waxy old bottles and big pictures of pompous French waiters. Menus offer a wide choice, from baked goats' cheese soufflé with chive cream and homemade corned beef with pickled red cabbage to grilled sea bass with smoked bacon and leek purée and red wine jus.

Otherwise, head for the polished oak-panelled dining room, where daily four-course dinner menus show a fondness for North Country produce. Mr Woodhall's matured Cumberland ham is served with fresh figs, pan-fried breasts of woodpigeon come with a parsnip tartlet, juniper sauce and grilled pancetta, while desserts could feature dark chocolate torte with two sauces. The personally chosen wine list runs to 50 bins arranged by grape variety with a further ten by the glass.
