Rose & Crown

1841 at Rose & Crown on Urbanspoon

The Rose and Crown Hotel, on the lovely Swan Street in Guildford, is a stunning heritage building. It is the SECOND oldest operating pub in Australia – the grand old building has been restored beautifully.

We’ve visited the Rose and Crown a few times over the years. Its somewhere we take overseas guests to and we just love a lazy afternoon in the shady beer garden. Pre-blog we had enjoyed lovely dinners and lunches here. Little Chef also discovered every child’s fave dessert – “Frog in a pond” here, on a warm summers day.

On this occasion, we were merely passing through, on a cold winter’s afternoon. After a long drive, we all needed a caffeine/beer/sugar hit, as well as a roaring fire. The Rose and Crown ticked all the boxes. We found a beaut spot right next to the open fire.

Chocolate Peanut Marquise ($13). This rich, velvety French dessert was divine. We loved the house made marshmallows too. Needless to say it didn’t last long!! And it won’t be long until we’re back again!!
