What People are Saying
“Had a super lunch at the Rose & Crown in Ashdon last week and would highly recommend it! Greg and Dionne were most welcoming and the new chef turned out some wonderful meals. Beer was excellent and local – Wylde Sky, lovely to be in a Free House. Will be back for a take away Sunday Roast soon! Thank you!”
