train man left this review about Rose & Crown

Not on my list, but looked good with an almost Tudor-style frontage, and Everards owned, so I jumped off the bus & walked back. Woe is me. Four handpumps, Tiger & Original plus 2 unclipped. Tried the Tiger – it didn't look good, and wasn't. I'd already received a hostile glare from the bar when I asked for a top-up, mainly to make a point as the lager drinker served before me (the only other customer) had meekly accepted his drink maybe an inch, or more, short of a pint. Low beamed ceiling, some bare brickwork, large brick inglenook with brasses whose effect was sadly lost due to the presence of an ugly plastic high-chair obscuring the wood/coal stove. Someone who I imagined to be the guv was playing one of the intrusive gaming machines, beyond which were a dartboard & pool table. The pub could probably be first rate with some caring management & decently kept beer but, even empty, I got the impression it would lean toward chav-central when busier. Shame. In the belief that returning my beer to the bar would prove fruitless, at least in getting a decent pint, I left it & did one.
