About Us



The Rose & Crown sits in the heart of the picturesque village of Writtle since 1642 overlooking the village green.

The Rose & Crown oozes charm and character and is a traditional village pub. It has a lovely warmth that makes you feel welcome straight away. We have a large seating area for dining, an area to keep up to date with sports with all sky channels available, we also have a large beer garden to relax in when the sun is out and keep the little ones entertained with a bouncy castle and a kiddies play area. We also have a large car park with extra parking to the rear of the building so visiting the Rose & Crown is easy.

Here at The Rose & Crown food is served 7 days a week and all produce where possible is locally sourced. We have a large array of home made dishes from starters to mains to some fabulous sweet desserts. Every Sunday the Rose & Crown offers a choice of 3 traditional roast dinners.
