Welcoming pub with relaxed accommodation - The Rose & Crown in Warwick

Well-located just off the Market Place in Warwick is the Rose & Crown, a popular gastro pub with rooms. A couple of weeks back we were in Warwick and the Rose & Crown served as our base. The gastro pub has been twice named in the Top Ten UK pubs in the last few years and it was also voted Best Pub in the UK in 2004. So, we were looking forward to the visit and the pub definitely delivered more than we expected!

As we walked into the pub, we couldn't help but feel the warm and inviting vibe. It oozed atmosphere - a homely feel with appealing modern and quirky d├ęcor. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and shown to our room which was in a building right across the lane. The pub has 13 rooms - five directly over the pub and eight (newer ones, from 2013) in the building across the lane.

Our room was stylish and beautifully equipped, with thoughtful touches. It was quite spacious (much more than we had expected), clean and comfortable. Television (with satellite channels), complimentary Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer etc. were provided. The bathroom was clean, spacious (again, it exceeded our expectations) and even had a freestanding roll top bath!

On paper, it’s a pub with rooms but the Rose & Crown is a very cosy place to stay and a fabulous place to eat. I personally felt that comfort was the key in the accommodation - quality furnishings, lots of space and a warm and casual vibe. We liked the room that we stayed in.

There was some noise from people enjoying a night out in the Market Place (on Friday night), but this did not affect our stay and we slept well.

The pub/restaurant was very busy in the evening, but it didn't put us off enjoying the delicious food. Although there was very limited choice for vegetarians, we liked the food we ordered. We opted for Soup of the Day (Cauliflower Soup), Sesame-crusted Halloumi, Green Beans, Broccoli, Cashew, Miso & Tahini Dressing (lovely texture and flavours), Aubergine & Mozzarella Parmigiana, Basil & Pine Nut Salad (very well seasoned), Snicker's Cheesecake (very moreish) and Jude’s Free-range Ice Creams. All the food was delicious. And even though the pub was busy, we were well looked after. Overall, our dinner was excellent and the service levels just as good.

The hearty breakfast (next morning) was the perfect way to kick-start a day of sightseeing in Warwickshire. Service was again helpful and attentive.

With its central location and a very popular pub, the Rose & Crown makes for the perfect night’s stopover en route to the Lake District or Scotland while travelling from London or vice versa. It also makes for a relaxed weekend break in its own right. It is ideally located to explore Warwick and its surroundings. We had a lovely stay at the Rose & Crown and would recommend it when staying in this lovely part of Warwickshire.
