The Rose & Crown
Nestled in the village of Balborough, The Rose & Crown is a 17th-century coach house and is the perfect destination for diners seeking traditional cuisine in a charming setting. Decorated in a traditional country style with exposed brick, flagstone floors, and wooden beams, it’s the ideal spot in which to enjoy a bite to eat and a pint of cask ale. Outside you’ll find a seated patio area and a well-kept beer garden where guests can relax in the sun in warmer months. The pub’s family-and dog-friendly status means that no member of the family is left behind.
No good village pub is complete without a hearty menu of delicious fare that’s cooked to order, and The Rose & Crown does not disappoint on this score. For starters, you might enjoy dishes such as baked Camembert served with homemade onion chutney, and falafels accompanied by mint yoghurt. Follow with beer-battered fresh Grimsby haddock and chips accompanied by mushy peas and a slice of white bloomer bread. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, why not plump for chicken fajitas or steak and ale pie served with creamy mash and seasonal vegetables. Sunday’s all-day carvery is another string to the pub’s bow and is not to be missed. A selection of vegetarian dishes, curries and burgers complete the menu. For those after a light bite, a concise bar menu is available featuring jacket potatoes and sandwiches. It’s no surprise that The Rose & Crown has been awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for six consecutive years.
