We came for Easter Sunday lunch and as usual the food was marvellous. The roast beef melted in your mouth. The staff were kind and helpful and very welcoming. We love this restaurant and it never disappoints us.

Located in a 14th century inn, in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside, The Rose and Crown restaurant serves locally sourced, seasonal British cuisine. Guests can sit out in the scenic garden surrounded by stunning landscapes, or in the cosy interior beside roaring fires.

Popular main courses at The Rose and Crown Trent include Dorset venison suet pudding and Cornish hake with braised lentils, chorizo and pimento. Warm treacle and orange tart with bourbon vanilla ice cream is just one of the deliciously indulgent desserts.

    It is always a joy to have lunch at The Rose and Crown. The setting is sublime in its rural simplicity. On a hot summer's day, there can be no better place than the relaxed and naturally beautiful garden. On cooler days, the log fires and charming interiors tick all boxes well. The delightful and considerate staff are more like friends as they care for all the guests in a helpful but never patronising way.
    Then comes the difficult decision on deciding which dish to choose. Everything is so delicious and well-considered by the brilliant chef. Well balanced ingredients used so imaginatively to yield truly enjoyable treats in every way. The portions are generous without being too much. The food for the whole table arrives simultaneously and silence descends as everything is savoured.

    The wine list is excellent and will not break the bank; the end bill is surprisingly low for the superb experience.

    We went here with another couple and had a lovely evening. The menu was varied, the food delicious and beautifully presented and the staff were friendly and helpful. We were seated fairly close to the bar so it was a little noisy at times but overall, the evening was very enjoyable.

    Have dined here previously and thought the menu did not have enough options but gave it a try to be very pleasantly pleased both with the excellent food and service. I can see why the menu is as it is because efforts are focused on quality not quantity!

    Booking service was excellent. Staff excellent. Venue excellent as always.
    The menu was limited in comparison with how it used to be. Winter menu used to be strong in game and dishes not found on ordinary pub menus but this time it was same as everywhere else and the wine list was very limited in comparison with previously: my old favourite of Villa Caffagio gone too.
    No complaints but it has left the ranks of the exceptional and joined the ranks of the just fine.
