      Positive aspects of the product (pros): The staff here is always very friendly and accommodating
      Cons: When they changed to the all-day menu, the got rid of the corned beef sandwich, which was a favorite

      I was disappointed that they had gotten rid of the corned beef sandwich, so I went with my old stand-by: steak. I was very pleasantly surprised by this. It was very flavorful and tender - one of the best steaks I've had. I'm not a big sauce person, and usually either ask to skip it, or get it on the side. This time I forgot, and was again surprised that it was just the right amount and didn't overpower the steak. The green beans that came as a side were perfectly done and very crisp. My dad had the corned beef and cabbage (I guess the replacement for the sandwich), and liked everything except the cabbage. We are used to having a boiled wedge of cabbage, but this was shredded like coleslaw. He said it was ok, just weird. My mom had the fish and chips, which is always done very nicely.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great Food
      Cons: None

      7-17-16: What a wonderful experience. My husband and I desired to share an app and entree. We had a scotch egg and bangers and mash. Hubbie also enjoyed a sticky toffee pudding. We lived in Scotland for a time and boy this meal was authentic British cuisine. The service was beyond wonderful. Loved it from beginning to end.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food and the opportuniy to watch Illuminations

      This is one of my families favorite experiences at Disney. We have been able to sit outside and watch Illuminations while finishing our dessert and tea. I had the masala ordered extra spicy. My kids got the burgers. We all enjoyed the food, especially the sticky toffee pudding. This is one dessert I refuse to share.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): good food, variety, service
      Cons: can be noisy

      We ate here our last night in WDW. Waited about ten minutes past our reservation time. Server was excellent. DDs had the fish and chips which they devoured in no time. Wife had the masala; huge portion, not too spicy. I had the coronation salad, which was a disappointment. The previous frisee salad was much better. This was more like a serving of coleslaw. Main dish was the pub burger. I'm hypercritical of burgers but this one gets my approval. The patty is huge; the rarebit sauce is a nice change from a slice of cheese. I was skeptical about the fried leeks but they were delicious, especially when mixed with the rarebit. Easily the best burger I've had in WDW. The sticky toffe pudding was also a hit. We ate way too much.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): viewing Illuminations, atmosphere
      Cons: greasy food

      Ate here 5/21 asked for deck seating to watch Illuminations. Only had to wait 5 min. This is dh favorite restaurant and we eat here every time we visit. This is only the second time we were able to be seated water front and it was beautiful. We were on dp so we knew we could sub dessert for soup. All ordered the potato leek soup which was awesome. All ordered fish and chips. The food took longer than expected and came just as Illuminations started. (We had waited almost an hour for our food.) The restaurant was not busy at all which is unusual. My ds17 loves the unsweet tea which is Twinings Lady Grey. be aware it does have a different taste than normal black tea that is served elsewhere in the parks. I have to buy this at home and their is only 1 store that sells it. He says it reminds him of Disney. Illuminations didn't disappoint however, two little girls came running down right next to our table to watch the show which I didn't mind at first but then they would scream and was waiving this blinking light up wands in our faces almost hitting us. The couple next to us was getting irritated because they were trying to enjoy the show and couldn't because of these two kids. I looked around to see where the parents were and didn't see anyone around. The final straw was when one of the girls who had to be around 9yrs old told my dd7 to move that she was in their way. Excuse me. This was our table and I had to bite my tongue not to say something. But I noticed on this trip that also of children were left unattended more times that not and in todays society I don't think this is a good thing. The fish was greasy and there was more breading than fish. The only thing I enjoyed was the soup. I will try to talk my dh out of eating here again when we return in sept.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros):

      We ate here for lunch on April 25, 2016. We were seated outside and the view was very beautiful. Our waitress was great. We both ordered the fish and chips and enjoyed it very much. We've eaten here several times in the past and always return ordering the same thing. If you are in the mood for some great fish, this is the place.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros):

      We were seated very promptly for our ADR, which was very nice.

      Our server wasn't the most friendly guy, but he was efficient. I ordered the fish/steak combo and was disappointed that they wouldn't let me sub one of the "assigned" sides with fries. This was the only sit down restaurant that we ate at that wouldn't let me choose a different side than the one already assigned to the dish. My husband had the fish and chips. We both really liked our food. Our deserts were just okay. I had the sticky toffee pudding. The sauce over it was divine, but the cake was super dried out.

      We have eaten here several times and will continue to come back despite this not being a particularly memorable visit.

      Cons: none

      Nice hostess, seating was fast, waitress was fun, nice and efficient, checked back with us often. Dinner was fast, fish and chips were amazing, corn beef, not so much. We eat here every time we come to Disney! Definitely recommend.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Service; Food

      My husband and I ate lunch here on March 22. This was our second time eating here and it didn't disappoint. We were using our TIW card. Both of us ordered Fish' n Chips and it was perfect. Our waitress was extremely attentive. I think she could tell how tired we both were. She brought us both to-go cups of our drinks as we were leaving and told us it wouldn't do to go out and buy another drink when we had already paid for one. We will definitely be eating here again.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Lovely location/ very friendly staff
      Cons: no bread service and NO ICE CREAM

      We ate here on March 11th which was my husbands birthday. We had a nice table outside by the lake and it was perfect for watching the fireworks.
      I was disappointed to learn they no longer have bread service and was shocked that they do not have ice cream! A basic dessert??
      Everything was delicious and our server was very sweet to us. My husband got a signed dessert menu as did our friend who was also celebrating.
      this is one of our favorite places to eat.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Atmosphere
      Cons: None

      My husband and I split the fish and chips and the salmon appetizer. I was a little disappointed that we only got one piece of fish (although it was a big one) and that the salmon appetizer didn't come with bread or crackers. But the food was good. And I had a nice glass of Riesling. The best part was watching Illuminations from our table on the back porch and the sticky toffee pudding. I think the food was overpriced, but I was expecting that at Disney.

      Cons: none

      Ate here for lunch last week. As usual, excellent service and the vegetarian cottage pie is awesome. Yes, it was hot, but I had plenty of water, with my glass of wine, and some breeze. They are so nice to parties of 1 here; Chloe was so sweet. A go to spot for me.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good food, quick
      Cons: None

      We had lunch here on 9/5 without a reservation. I was surprised that we were able to get a table (inside!) in less than 5 mins. Our waiter was fast & friendly though difficult to understand at first. Once he asked where we were from he seemed to slow down his speech a little. DH had the bangers & mash which was very good. I just wanted something lite so I chose the trio of cheeses all of them were good & I really enjoyed the accompaniments. DS had the grilled chicken "it's the best!". DD had kids fish & chips which she liked much more than the Raglan Rd version. DN ordered a side salad as "the menu is small & nothing sounds good", which she didn't enjoy because it had blue cheese. I thought the salad was very tasty. We were happy with our experience.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): excellent food, drink and service
      Cons: outdoor seating

      we booked here kicking and screaming at our daughter's insistence as we have always refused to take a nine hour flight and then eat in the 'UK'. She felt that after ten days in Florida she would need a taste of home and as we all choose a percentage of our reservations we went along for the ride. Suffice it to say that we weren't looking forward to this in the least - big mistake.
      The only negative as per the previous poster is that we were automatically sat outside in the sun on a very hot August day.
      Typically British we sat there without even considering asking to be moved but in hindsight we ought to have done so.
      The view from outside however is beautiful and if like me you enjoy the heat you will love it.
      We had soft drinks to start with (all served in pint pots - my Dad would be horrified to see a woman drinking out of a pint glass but hey when in America...............)
      I then succumbed to a nice glass of English Lager and it was certainly as delicious as it is at home.
      My husband ate the fish and chips and said it was as good as at home.
      The other three of us had the surf and turf. A bizarre concoction of half fried fish and the other half roast dinner with steak instead of a normal roast beef but all was cooked to perfection. This was accompanied by an English 'Aunt Bessies' type of Yorkshire pudding.
      For dessert my son had the trifle which was actually more like an old fashioned jelly and custard dessert rather than a traditional English trifle. The rest of us had an amazing sticky toffee pudding.
      Rose and Crown you did us Brits proud. Our only suggestion is that you offer the choice of indoors or outdoors at the podium.
      As an additional mention our server took lots of time to explain to my very interested twelve year old daughter exactly the details of her time working at Epcot, the interview procedure and all about her time in the USA. Fantastic!!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food, atmosphere
      Cons: Outdoor seating

      We have eaten several times at the Rose and Crown pub. This time around, we made our ADR as per the rules of our dining plan and on the evening of our dinner, checked in a little earlier than our 5:55 reservation. We watched the British Revolution show (love it!) to bide our time, and when we got called, our server tried to seat us in the outdoor section of the restaurant. This is not something we were interested in in the dog days of summer, in Florida no less! We quickly explained to him that we would wait for a table inside, of which there appeared to be many (although I know that they were all probably reserved as well). We had never experienced this problem before, and were sad to do so this vacation. Our food was very good as usual, and we love the pub-like atmosphere as well as the pleasant staff.

      If you are making a reservation for this restaurant and do not want to eat outside, I suggest you specify your wants when doing so! It could have saved us 45 minutes of waiting.
