There’s something quintessentially British about whiling away a lazy afternoon in the Rose and Crown in pretty village. The Rose and Crown pub in Lytchett Matravers does a great job living up to this idyll, claiming good beer and homemade food – with a traditional Sunday roast on the menu every week.
The pub is often host to live entertainment and prize draws. Pop down for steak (and wine) night on a Saturday to celebrate the weekend in style. There’s a meat draw each Thursday and a daytime “Tea and Cake Break” once a month too.
