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
Took some visitors from America to The Rose and Crown (St Michael's Street) for Sunday lunch. Very pleased we booked as they were busy. At £12.50 maybe not the cheapest but very generous portions of good quality and well cooked meats, lovely selection of veg too. Our visitors said it was the best meal they've had since being in the UK!
The staff were very friendly and welcoming We had a lovely beef roast with all the trimmings Would highly recommend the Rose and Crown with it's pretty secret garden
We went at a weekday lunch time. Staff were friendly and helpful. The 3 starters for £15 platter was well presented, had generous portion sizes and tasted good. We would have liked to have seen more variety in lighter hot meals on the Menu (e.g. jacket potatoes). Parking is limited and it is best to assume you need to park elsewhere (there are some options nearby).
Lovely atmosphere and great food. I took my mum for Mothers day and I can not fault the service/food and atmosphere, we both enjoyed it. I would recommend it if you want the friendly country pub experience - you can take your dog if you want too.
Lovely pub with oak beams and a roaring fire. Great food from a traditional English pub menu but with a modern twist and large portions. The staff were friendly
We had very nice meals. It did take quite a while to get the food out mind you. Staff very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a nice time.
Excellent roast meal. Cooked to perfection and really good quality service especially considering the pub was absolutely rammed as there was a private function on in one room.
