Rose and Crown, Saunderton, Buckinghamshire

We went on The Times offer of a £10 menu. Apparently this is good place for food but this restricted menu perhaps wasn’t a show case of the best. I was still tired after a week back at work on the back of an exhilarating camping trip to Yorkshire. Sleet and snow were the norm and I hadn’t really recovered so as the evening went on I spiraled down into listening and not talking.
However, the swede soup was one of the tastiest I ever had, only spoiled by the idea of ‘crusty bread’ which was just blotting paper from the supermarket.
I had sausages and mash which was just that with a tasty gravy. The pudding was a delight – cheesecake with summer fruits. Quite rich but satisfying after a hard days work.
There was no ruibos tea – why do restaurants not supply this? So I had a pot of ordinary. It would be interesting to go back and try out the normal food. For £10 this was good value but nothing much to blog about.

  1. Travelling from London to Aylesbury, we decided to break the jouney here; big mistake. The gardens were overrun with the young offspring of a private party, who also had occupied most of the venue and brought along a disco to boot – there was no segregation between the bar and the eating area.

    Menu looked limited and service seemed much he same; we left before they got around to us.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I notice that they had some large conference/party areas which are never good news for the other clients.
