The original pub on the corner has clearly been extended into the two adjoining cottages, and the barman told me that it had also been extended to the rear, where the nain bar counter is currently located. Some parts of the pub are said to be over 300 years old, although much of the old beams in the erstwhile cottages are reclaimed later additions. It must have been a small and insignificant pub back in the day. There’s a notice in the garden at the back giving some background to the pub, which also contains some guff about Dick Turpin which I guess must be expected in any country pub to the north of London. But for all that it’s a decent enough place.

Other points worth mentioning are the table football game, the room in the end cottage being for adults only, plus the inevitable coffee machine occupying an alcove in the main bar, and obviously a large screen TV. Where we sat in the adults only section (although on Friday afternoon there were no kids in) there was what looked like an illuminated sign for something called Desperado – but thankfully not illuminated during the day. It looked out of place in here.

Unfortunately the ale choice wasn’t particularly inspiring, with just GK Abbot and London Pride (£3.65 a pint) on. This place didn’t seem particularly food centric, with some fairly standard stuff on the menu. I noted the burger & chips at £10.95, and the steak & ale pie at £12.95.

This is a perfectly decent pub even though the ale choice is fairly bogstandard. The big downside is that it’s really isolated and difficult to reach without a car.

Nice country style pub in semi-rural setting, ideal if you've just had a stroll through Whitewebbs Park. Friendly staff and well kept beers. Above average.

The Rose and Crown sits in a dip on Clay Hill known locally as Beggars Hollow and has the advantage of location dead opposite the Hilly Fields Green space. It is an impressive building, both inside and outside and is a former coaching Inn with bits of the building dating from the 1700’s and an Inn named The Rose has been listed at this location since 1716 and there are some historical connections to Dick Turpin whose grandparents are meant to have owned the premises until 1752.
Internally there are three connecting areas with low ceilings , stone floors and wood beamed décor. The central bar area supports three handpumps, but there is usually only two ales on , which were Fullers London Pride and Deuchars IPA on my last visit if I remember correctly
Outside there is a decent garden area round the back from the main road and it’s location opposite Hilly Fields makes it an ideal place for a stop if you are doing the Hilly Fields / Whitewebbs walking path.
