About Rose and Crown - Highgate

Highgate's Rose and Crown was, in the 17th and 18th centuries, frequented by royalty. In fact, so popular was it with those regal types that the back bar was dubbed The Royal Box. Now a buzzy restaurant the Rose and Crown combines a relaxed atmosphere with a quality of food not often seen in your local boozer. Decked out in warm reds and browns, with comfortable leather couches and reclaimed bench seating the rooms are as inviting as the menu. Family favourites from good old sirloin steak to penne gorgonzola are fit for a king and while you might not spot true royalty in residence here there's no doubt this place is a gastro-jewel in Highgate's crown
