    Recently had a lovely meal at this establishment.

    The pub must belong to a chain as it has the same menu as the Bull's Head in Chiswick.

    Lots of favourites on the menu as well as some modern twists.

    I had a smoked haddock rarebit, with a poached egg (on the specials menu at £9.50) and my boyfriend had the Chicken and Chorizo Fricasse. Both meals were very nice, however the vegetables were frozen peas and carrots which weren't that nice.

    They have different specials every night ie Curry night, Hotpot night.

    The one thing that really stands out for me was the dessert! I went for the Chocolate Fudge Cake (£4.60) and it was amazing! Generous portion, lots of hot fudge sauce AND cream! It was very rich, but heaven for chocoholics like myself!

    The pub is very cosy, and is about to have a short refurb. Lots of sofas as well as tables.

    Service was a bit sporadic as there was a large table of diners, and it was the waiters first night.

    Would definitely return, even if it was just for the chocolate cake!!

    As new residents of Kew Village, we've been slowly venturing out into Kew proper. As as we trudged deeper and deeper... err well walked up to Kew Green, we found a nice pub with a good lunch offer!

    Monday through Thursday is 2 courses for £10, but we went on a Friday. But not to fret! They had a lunch special, soup and a half sandwich for £3.95. Well I just cannot resist that!

    I had a lovely little Peri Peri chicken sandwich accompanied by a delicious cup of broccoli and cheese soup (made me harken back to my old days of Schloztsky's and Panera).

    They have a lovely patio area, and on certain nights and weekend afternoons, you're more than likely to find a game of cricket on the green opposite.

    Quite traditionally styled pub but none the worse for that. Warm and welcoming on a cold winter's night, especially if you sit near the fireplace. Cool and calming on a hot summer's evening, after a frenetic day at work. Gorgeous location facing the cricketers on Kew Green, a short 'bowl' from world-famous Kew Gardens.

    Prices here are reasonable; the least expensive red wine - South African Pinotage - was spot-on and just right after a long, cold walk - £2.90 for a standard glass.

    Fair choice of food available - seemed popular when I visited - although I haven't yet tried it, as I've been perfectly happy chatting and drinking - the latter in moderation, you'll be pleased to hear;-)

    A mediocre pub in a beautiful area. The food, interior, music, and ambience are distinctly average, and the selection of ales was below average  at least when we visited. Stella, Kronenberg, Fosters, et al. The two slightly more interesting looking ales we're sadly not available. It is, however, comfortable, child-friendly,
    and probably the best pub on Kew Green. Noveau Beefeter, I'd say. Entirely inoffensive.

    Four of us went to the Rose & Crown for lunch on New Year's Eve and had a really nice meal.  It was our first visit - and we will certainly return.  The menu is varied but, as with all Chef & Brewer pubs, it is worth asking what's available before you start agonising over what to choose as they do seem to have a habit of running out of supplies!  I spent ages scanning the menu before eventually ordering the red snapper... only to find they had none.  I ended up with the Butterbean Pie (which was delicious) and we then had a similar problem when ordering desserts!  The service was slightly slow, despite the pub being fairly quiet.  Not sure what it would be like on a busy day in summer when everyone is wanting to eat with one eye on the cricket pitch across the road - but all in all it's a nice pub, with friendly staff providing good food and good value.

    We ate  here on Sunday. If it wasnt raining and dark by 4.30pm it would have been lovely to sit outside opposite the grass. Inside is so inviting. Fire place going, lounges to chill, lots of tables and chairs to eat at  placed all around in seperate areas .A little bit rustic, a little bit modern, a lot cosy. The food is nice and from £7.99 to £8.99  for a better than most roast ! and  Kids meals for £5.  Very child friendly even with small cutlery,  colouring in and puddings for 99p. What more could we want? Family friendly. The menu is big , advertising  curry nights and vegearian nights , usual specials through the week.  A lovely English Pub.

    I have been to the Rose and Crown a couple of times now and I have to say that the atmosphere is great. It is particularly good on a cold winters evening, when you can sit in front of the roaring fire, or in summer, when you can sit outside overlooking the Green. The only downside is that the food is only average  portion sizes are small, and the last time I went one of the orders that turned up was wrong, by the time the correct order had arrived the rest of the group had finished eating.

    Really like this pub! It was done up over the summer/autumn last year and the food has become really lovely. The onion rings are very tasty and I would also recommend the chicken burger! Really enjoy it for either a quiet dinner or drinks with friends. Always relatively busy at he weekend, but not in a bad way! & the staff are lovely and helpful. Went here last night an sat for a couple of hours very happily with some drinks :)

    We went to the Rose and Crown for lunch before going to Kew Gardens. It was a slightly idyllic day, there was cricket being played on the green and the sun was shining. The food and the service were both very good. I had Scampi chips and salad, really tasty, and a glass of pimms, unfortunately without strawberries or cucumber in which was probably the only thing wrong with the place. The Man had a steak and something pie and the soup of the day, (with a cider of course) which he nommed his way through with great pleasure. He wasn't talking so I'm guessing he enjoyed it! The prices were exceptionally reasonable for Kew so no complaints at all well apart from the lack of cucumber and strawberries. I would definitely go back if I was in Kew again.

    Went in on friday night. probably the best pub on that stretch of the thames. Always chilled atmosphere and the company on friday wasn't bad either. Onion rings are the best in London

    We ordered the Farmhouse Platter, after waiting over 40 minutes for a meal that didn't actually require cooking, it arrived with the porkpie still frozen in the middle! We kept asking staff where our food was but we never saw the same waiter twice! Our meal had obvioulsy been forgotten as the people next to us had food within about 10 minutes of ordering. They did offer us another platter, but as we had already eaten the remaining items, we had drinks on the house instead. Awful service to start with but our complaint was dealt with efficently.
