please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Passed this today at 12.30pm and it looked closed. No cars in car park. Web site advertising it for a new tenancy so not sure of its status.

Just re-opened again, lovely old building, good beer, ideal for a quiet drink during the day. However they can't cope very well when it's busy, to the point of ignoring people at the bar because they find other stuff to do. Very annoying. I haven't tried th food but that does look good.

This pub is now owned by the same guy who owns the Royal Oak and is reopening soon.

I'll prospone my judgement until then!

the rose & crown is one of the three pubs to be found in the centre of barlborough village. and in my view, probably the best one. I'm assuming its a Greene King pub, as the table brollies say so and there are a number of GK beers served.
***
outside, the pub is nicely decorated in a well-maintained half-brick, half-timbered style. it has a decent sized car park and decent lawned beer garden to the side. looks like it would be very pleasant on a warm summer day.
***
the inside has been done in a stone and timber style, with a separate restaurant section, a dining lounge to the front, and two other drinks rooms to the rear. a centrally placed bar serves all 3 rooms. One of the rear rooms is done out slightly comfier with leather sofas. the toilets are something else! the gents are immaculate, done out with a large square old-fashioned kitchen sink, gold taps, a choice of hand wash creams, deodorants, and breath fresheners. It felt a bit like walking into the house next door's bathroom!
***
the bar staff were quick to serve, friendly and talkative, to say we were new customers. the menu looked nice but was a bit pricey. keg beers included morland speckled hen. the 2 cask ales offered were titanic sundance and morland original bitter, which I had not tried before but was very good.
***
verdict:
an impressive, very well looked-after pub. seems to attract the more affluent of the village. I'm not tempted by the pricey menu but would gladly re-visit for the fine ales.
this one justly earns a 9 from me, only losing a point on the pricey meals.
