Rose & Crown

Lovely country pub in Sandridge

Welcome to the Rose & Crown Sandridge. Our beautiful 400 year old village pub, just on the outskirts of St Albans, looks forward to welcoming you with open arms. We want to offer everything we believe a village pub should be. 

Food & Drink

Lovely, genuine home-cooked food & fresh Cask ale, great beers and wines.
All food is freshly made on the premises from the home made scotch eggs to the fat chips, to the legendary steak and kidney pies.
No matter if you are popping in for a quick power lunch or indulging in a full three course dinner, we can make you some lovely food to fit the bill.

Our a la carte menu offers a number of British classics all with our own twist on them, using locally sourced ingredients wherever we possibly can. Our seafood is sustainably sourced through The Stickleback Fish Company and we do fish specials every Friday night. For lighter bites or to indulge in a bit of sharing, check out our British Tapas selection,yes that's British Tapas. Delicious sandwiches, all served on beautiful homemade white bread baked by our chefs every morning. 

Oh, and don't forget our Sundays roasts, served between 12-5pm. And for you coffee lovers, freshly ground Italian blend from Smith's Coffee Company.
