Built in 1810 as an ale house by Edward Knight, the elder brother of Jane Austin, the Rose & Crown is now a delightfully charming pub in the scenic village of Farringdon. Both the Rose & Crown and Farringdon are richly steeped with Austen related history, as the village was a favourite location for the writer to visit for afternoon tea; the likes of which Gourmet Society members can now experience for themselves.
Walk in Jane Austen’s footsteps around Farringdon, taking in the sights and visiting the neighbouring village of Chawton to see the Jane Austen House Museum, and retire to the Rose & Crown for a sumptuous spread of afternoon refreshment. This delectable offering can be enjoyed at a superb price too with the Gourmet Society card, so there’s every reason to bring a friend along for the experience.
With everything in the kitchen being made using only the finest and freshest locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, guests will be able to enjoy everything presented of enchanting multi-tiered plates whilst being safe in the knowledge that it is all as delicious as it can possibly be.
Afternoon tea at the Rose & Crown consists of a diner’s choice of tea or coffee along with a wealth of delicate finger sandwiches, filled with traditional flavours, some wondrous scones, accompanied with lashings of clotted cream and sweet jams, and a selection of heavenly homemade treats, such as cakes and desserts. There’s always the option of adding a glass of something sparkling as well, should the occasion merit something special.
Nestled on the edges of the luscious South Downs National Park, diners wishing to escape the cluttered environment of a big town or city will easily be able to find the Rose & Crown, what with Farringon being slightly off the A31.
