Rose and Crown, Guildford

Rose and crown Guildford

The historic Rose and Crown is one of our favourite pubs in Perth. As well as the Rose and Crown being such a beautiful venue, the food is consistently good. Dating back to 1841, the hotel is steeped in history, and its original features remain throughout.

There are plenty of dining options; the Stables Kitchen serves wood-fired pizzas and bar meals, the Posh Convict restaurant has a bar and lounge area, the cellar bar, the formal 1841 restaurant with its open fireplaces, and the Garden, for alfresco dining in the large leafy courtyard.

The beer garden/paved courtyard often has live entertainment on weekends and is a delightful spot to sit on a sunny day.

The cosy cellar has been restored and is found down a steep staircase. Down in the cellar you’ll find the old well.

We dined on a weekday, where the 1941 dining room was the only available indoor dining space. We love its ornate fireplaces, so it was a delight to take a seat in there.

Like many people we know, we’ve never had a bad meal here, so we had high hopes for our lunch. We were shown to our table by a friendly waitress and given the menu and wine list and the day’s specials. The menu has al the pub favourites – burgers, parmi, steak, salads, plus much more. My steak and Guinness pie ($28) was hearty and good value – I loved the pastry. Served with mash, wilted spinach, crispy sweet potato and gravy, it’s a perfect wintery dish to enjoy by the fire with a glass of red.

My daughter enjoyed a Thai yellow fish curry. The spicy curry was full of local fish and a generous amount of prawns. Garlic rice was served on the side.

Though the dessert menu sounded scrumptious, none of us had any room at all for sweets. Like I said, we’ve been to the Rose and Crown more times than I can count, and we’re sure to be repeat customers for many years to come.
