Rose & Crown
Set just outside St Albans, the Rose & Crown is full of character and charm. It’s surrounded by historic buildings and as you explore the neighbourhood you’ll find beautiful views around every corner. This traditional British pub dates back to the early 16th century and offers a relaxed atmosphere and wholesome fare.
Step inside and be greeted by the same sight that has welcomed visitors for hundreds of years: exposed beams emphasise the history of the building, while a roaring fire and comfy armchairs create a welcoming environment. Stopping by with friends? Enjoy one of many beers, ales, spirits or wines from the bar. In the summer you can even take your drink out to the beer garden. The menus here change seasonally, but diners are always guaranteed a varied selection. Mains typically range from beer-battered haddock and chips, to hearty sausages and mash, while plates such as macaroni and cheese make for a tempting vegetarian choice. Diners of all ages will love the build-your-own burger option, and available fillings include tuna, beef, and halloumi and mushroom.
If you’re seeking something lighter, the range of tasty wraps and jacket potatoes are ideal. They’ll also help you save room so that you don’t leave without sampling one of the chef’s indulgent desserts – the chocolate fudge cake comes highly recommended.
