4th and final pub of our short crawl.

2 sided bar, busy on 1 side but empty on the other…perhaps the locals aren’t allowed around the other side!

2 beers on, the pint I had was good.

This is a nice enough pub but it didn’t feel over friendly, though maybe 8 blokes coming in isn’t the norm.

have visited the pub in the past and had a really fun night ther was afree juke box and the landlady and staff was great. how ever my recent visit was bloody awful the couple running the place were stuck up and rude she was wearing rubber gloves to serve beer inbetween cleaning stuff which i found very off putting and the gent paul i think his name was acting like a doorman. he turned away some very ordinary people because he said the were drunk but i heard him say to his wife didnt like the look of them. they seem to have there favourite customers who could get away with any thing but my wife and i were made to feel most un welcome. would not return unless new managers!!

in my opinion its an extremely poor run pub, and both the landlord and landlady really havnt a clue how to treat customers and people in general. 3.50 for a pint of guinness and at least 3.30 for fosters. lots of people in hemel have had very simular experiences to mine. no pool table and have replaced pool table with............table and chairs. one to definately miss!!!!!

Decent pool table but can be a bit cramped at the sides. Also does a couple of good ales and decent food. Likeable pub with friendly staff.

I have been a regular at The Rose and Crown for over 5 years now, Gill and Paul run a very clean pub with a very welcoming and pleasant atmosphere.

The food is absoulty fantastic! Expertly prepared and served; the menu is very traditional but specials are run on a regular basis, my personal favourite is the fortnightly curry nights where you get a curry (with all the trimings) and a pint at a very reasonable price.

The beer is kept at a standard that is nothing less than perfect, the real ales change on a regular basis so there is always something new for people to try. As well as a good selection of beers; The Rose also offers a wide range of ciders, wines and spirits.

In my humble opinion this is the best pub I have had the pleasure of frequenting.

A fantastic place. Great food, well priced, fortnightly curry nights are superb; and with a great atmosphere, a good place to come for a drink anytime.

This pub used to be great in the crazy days of Jane and Chris. It's still a looker - ancient building with a well-preserved fireplace. Serves Thai food now and has gone somewhat up-market.
