Exit the M40 at Junction 15 and follow signs to Warwick. Past the castle car park entrance and up the hill to the West Gate, left into Bowling Green Street and then first right, follow the road until you see WH Smith. Bear right and The Rose & Crown is to your left in Market Square. There is (extremely) short stay on street parking next to the pub. For longer-term parking, please use the surface car-park just off Bowling Green Street or the multi-storey car park in Linen Street. Both are less than 5 minutes walk. Linen Street closes at 8pm. If you are staying with us, please park on a meter, drop your bags and we will give you directions to the best car park.

Food and drink
We serve the good stuff. All our meat is British and of the highest quality, from Aubrey Allen. This eighty year-old Warwickshire butcher supplies many of Britain’s finest restaurants as well as holding HM The Queen’s Royal Warrant. Our steaks are from Britain’s finest (increasingly rare) beef herds, 28-day dry-aged for stupendous flavour. Our Cotswold White chickens are free-range, as are our eggs, pork and ice-cream. Our lamb is Cornish. Our fish is native where possible, and we follow the ever-changing advice on sustainability.
Our head chef Leon Higham and his skilled brigade devise our seasonal menus and a range of tempting daily specials (check out our blackboards around the pub!). As well as celebrating our increasingly-vibrant British food culture, the focus on seasonal ingredients means we buy the best stuff when it’s at the best price. This way we keep prices sensible even though we’re buying top quality ingredients.
As well as serving our full menu at lunch and dinner, we have hot fresh food available throughout the day. Starting with eggs and fresh sourdough bread for breakfast, accompanied by quality Union coffee made by our barista-trained team, we also serve cakes and a range of sandwiches and light hot dishes whenever you need them.
