Nestled inside a 16th century building, the Rose and Crown on St Michael’s Street is a pub with a lot of old fashioned charm, retaining its original wooden beaming and decorated in a traditional style with a cosy inglenook fireplace. Located within the quaint village of St Michaels, close to the centre of St Alban’s, Rose and Crown is a popular choice for a traditional British feast in Hertfordshire. On the menu you’ll find pub food favourites, light bites and hearty homecooked dishes, from gourmet sandwiches to steak and ale pie, beer-battered cod goujons with chips and calves liver served alongside dauphinoise potatoes. Veggies will find plenty of choice too, like the vegetarian sausages served with a choice of potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Wash it down with some real ale, or some wine from the handpicked selection.
Tasty and classy home cooked food , great selection of proper beer, excellent service and a lovely old pub with warm fire, beams and welcoming service. Recommend the chicken and chorizo pie but excellent choices on menu way beyond normal pub food.
Took family for Sunday lunch and we honestly can't remember a Sunday roast which we enjoyed more. We chose roast turkey and trimmings and roast lamb. Glad that we booked as it was very busy .Beautifully cooked meal and so substantial we couldn't manage pudding - perhaps next time!
We had the Sunday carvery for 4 people it was lovely, the meat was very tasty and tender and and the veg was hot and plenty to choose from, not worth cooking at home, a very enjoyable Sunday lunch time
