Locally Famous Sunday Roasts
Takeaway also available
We think our Sunday Roasts are an 11/10, (yes we’ve claimed it!) lashings of our own ‘legendary’ gravy and Yorkshire Puddings that are bottomless, sharing roasts, vegan roasts and enough fine wine to sink a ship! Takeaway roasts are also available, just call us to book yours! Our ‘Roast of the Day’ is available alongside our Pizza Menu with Daily Specials…
Local Wines and internationally sourced bottles
We pride ourselves on our handpicked and enviable wine list. With a great selection of chilled crisp whites and rose and our fruity, full bodied and spicy reds, you’ll be spoilt for choice of which bottle to choose. We use many local suppliers including Joseph Barnes of Saffron Walden.
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!”
