Newest Review: ... the landlord blocked the door and asked if we were for the 2 o'clock sitting. When I replied, yes, he rudely said we would have to go away and come back at 2 o'clock, as it was crowded and they needed time to set up the table. I replied that I thought it was a pub, and perhaps we could have drink before lunch. He said that if we wanted a drink, we'd have to have it outside. (It was ... more

My husband and I booked the second sitting for Mother's Day lunch, as a treat for his mother. The reservation was for 2 o'clock. We had never been to the pub before, and arrived at 1.30, thinking we would have a drink before lunch. As I opened the door, (my 91 year old mother-in-law behind me) and tried to enter, the landlord blocked the door and asked if we were for the 2 o'clock sitting. When I replied, yes, he rudely said we would have to go away and come back at 2 o'clock, as it was crowded and they needed time to set up the table.

I really like this place. The location is lovely and the food wonderful, especially the fresh local fish and game. They cater to walkers and Downs cyclists and have local and useful produce for sale, including their owns eggs, bicycle repair kits, frozen smoked salmon and oven-ready rabbits. I always order the tiger prawns because they are yummy, and the serving staff are very warm and friendly. The landlord is a quirky sort of chap to be sure, but I think that's down to his bone dry sense of humour. I've grown to rather like it over the years.

My husband and I visited The Rose Cottage in June 2010 for dinner. We had been there a few times in the past. We were shown to our table (which was extremely small) and given the menu by a very off-hand owner. He did not seem to be a bit interested in the diners and made us feel we were a nuisance by telling us he was tired. I had decided that I would have a fillet steak as a treat - I started to cut into it and found it was so tough I could hardly get my knife through it. I had a mouthful and it was impossible to eat it. We told the waitress and I said I would just eat the vegetables but I wanted the owner to know. At the end of a rather miserable meal (we didn't Read the complete review

We (two couples)visited the Rose Cottage Sat 14th July 2010.The pub was very busy and many people were eating outside as all the inside tables were reserved.We had booked a table for eight o clock and we sat down at ten to eight.We ordered our food about a quarter past eight(no startersrequired).The food arrived about nine o clock.My sea bream dinner would have been adequate for a small child.Two of us had duck and although it was good it was luke warm.The other of our party had chicken which was average.The vegetables were good but probably should have been double the quantity.Nobody at any time asked if the food was ok.The landlord was efficient but ...
