The Rose and Crown is a traditional Victorian built pub, in a typically pretty Kentish village – Hadlow is well worth a stroll around, with its fascinating architectural folly, the Hadlow Tower; or for more exercise, the surrounding countryside abounds with great walks.
The pub is known for its well kept real ales and features in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide. The food is well worth trying too – all freshly prepared, good home-style cooking with a choice of traditional English dishes and a peppering of more exotic options.
The welcoming bar, home to Albert the long-time ghostly resident of an old licensee, has a dart board, pool table, cards, dominoes and Shut the Box to entertain. A glorious woodburning stove with brass surrounds and interesting historical photos of the traditional hop-picking in the area in days gone by enhances the atmosphere.
Once a month a fun quiz is held with prizes and the pub is a keen supporter of local charities. It holds events throughout the year including a charity auction and a summer fete. There is a pleasant garden outside with plenty of seating and a separate smoking area.
The Rose and Crown also offers bed and breakfast with two rooms which can each accommodate one, two or three people with use of a bath and shower room, TV, tea and coffee in rooms and free wifi.
