Warwick food and drink is celebrating a fresh new look after The Rose and Crown re-opened its doors with a new interior and an exquisite winter menu.
The pub in Market Square has undergone a £200,000 refurbishment and redesign to give it a smart feel and create additional room for guests.
It has also revamped its menu to showcase high quality products and fine dining.
With an all-British meat menu complimented by the pick of the season’s crop customers can now enjoy a host of new dishes including Cornish lamb casserole from award winning butchers with Creamy mash or pan-fried sea bass with Bombay potatoes on the winter menu.
Head Chef Rob Hartwell, winner of the Craft Guild of Chefs Pub Restaurant Chef of the year 2012, and his skilled brigade are now cooking up a treat selection of seasonal food and a range of tempting daily specials in their new surroundings.
Including onion bhaji and cardamom yoghurt, smoked haddock and king prawn pie with parsley crust - the menu has something to suit all tastes.
The pub has been completely redecorated inside and out, to give a stylish new look and make the most of all the building’s period features.
They have also added a few more touches in what manager Suzie Ayling described as a fresh new way to get into the festive season.
“As well as a fresh look on the outside, we’ve made the interior more comfortable with new seating, lighting and some lovely pieces like stained glass and artwork which bring out the interesting features of the pub which people know and love.” she said.
“The eatery has an elegant new look and we’ve also added an extra 20 casual dining covers by turning a space behind the pub into The Yard, a new spot that’s perfect for laid-back lunches and drinks with friends.
“With its name in lights, white-washed brick walls and comfy booth seating, it’s a funky place to hang out.
“We’ve completely transformed the private dining room as well to create The Wood Shed, a really great new place for a bit of a do.
“It’s got rustic chic mixed up with some quirky antique pieces and plenty of space to sit back and have a special lunch or dinner or a momentous meeting.”
There is no children’s menu available, as the staff believe they should have food as good as the adults, but the team is happy to create smaller or simplified versions of any dishes.
