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.

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 :)

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.
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.
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!!
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.
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;-)
