At the 'Rose' we take pride in being a genuinely independent local pub. We offer a warm, friendly welcome, traditional ales including the local 'Bishop Nick' beers, a real log fire (in the winter!) and a varied menu featuring traditional country products, fresh seafood and Italian specials.

The 'Rose' business is under the ownership of Ben Johnson, who was brought up in Great Waltham. Our programme of renovation has continued this Autumn, with new gents' toilets and conversion of the former 'office' extension into an additional pub area. This compliments all the recent changes - redecoration inside and out, new ladies facilities, new carpet, new central heating, new lighting including the car park, new window blinds, air con in the restaurant and, proving to be extremely popular, a completely re-furbished eating area in the snug with new furniture. With new pub signage as well, we're easy to find in Great Waltham. 

The Chefs... 

Pino of the Hotel Lago Paolo, Italy, brings Mediterranean passion and flair. James, an honours graduate of Braintree College, brings a passion for traditional cuisine using the very best of local produce, whilst Stephan, formerly of the prestigious Keystone Group in Australia, brings a knowledge of fusion food and fungi! The result of this wealth of experience and knowledge is seen in the range of innovative and exciting dishes which make up the menu at the Rose and Crown.

Restaurant - 

The comfortable small private dining area seats 22, plus 20 in the bar, 11 in the snug and 10 in our refurbished former 'office'. The dining area and snug are available for private functions - anniversaries, birthdays and funeral receptions. Telephone to make a booking and if required, arrange a buffet.

Menu -

Our menu offers freshly caught East Coast fish, locally sourced Game, plus starters and main courses with an Italian theme. Our 'Specials' board is updated and changed on a regular basis. You can view our menu here. We also have a modest, but varied Wine List.
