Handy for the station, popped in whilst waiting for a bus to Devizes on Saturday lunchtime - quiet. Obviously been modernised since last post - clean, minimalistic, Butcombe Bitter was reasonable. Called in again on the way back, obviously the place for people in Trowbridge to be 'seen'. Only time for a quick half - although train was late so could have had a pint!

Hadn't planned to make this pub a particular destination, but it proved to be convenient for lunch when passing through the town via the station en route to Hilperton Marina to pick up a narrowboat, especially given that nearby Stallard's seemed to be the victim of 'silly' opening hours (doors closed till 2PM on a Saturday - and later when we re-checked it it was still closed at nearly 3?!).

What we found was not exceptional or unusual, but by and large our party (of no small number at 14) generally considered the Rose and Crown to be a decent outlet which combined restaurant and pub facets in equal measure. The cask ale range wasn't wide but quality was reasonable (4 on offer and all local and seemed to be selling nicely), while food range was broad and served at pub grub standard (food was popular; we all ate and once I'd partaken of a lasagne and chips I was suitably replete).

Service was found to be excellent; both barmaids who appeared on shift during our stay seemed polite and efficient in both taking orders, and serving grub 'n' grog. Nobody was made to wait long despite things becoming reasonably busy during the lunchtime slot, and while one should be able to legitimately expect this everywhere one goes, sadly it can't always be taken for granted. They proved helpful when we needed a local taxi firm too.

In terms of decor, clearly the pub's exterior had been carefully-maintained in essentially Victorian character, though the interior presented as a rather more contemporary, light and airy space which was well-executed and finished, though arguably jarring when looked at from outside. I suppose it seeks to favour the foodie brigade rather more than the boozie one, but still there was a comfortable bar area which hosted a range of clientele in both age and gender.

All in all, chalked this one up as a decent average; not perhaps a pub to recommend friends to seek out if in Trowbridge, but nevertheless a good option if in need of a quick feed and water.

Recently ate food at this pub, good alcohol and pleasant staff very friendly but unfortunately would not recommend it for food. Ordered a steak and was not offered a steak knife which is a strange mistake, also my other half ordered a burger which she asked for no garnish it was served with full garnish including dressing and she had a total of 8 chips upon her plate, the portions were measly for the price you paid and they serve better quality food elsewhere in Trowbridge.
