Welcome to The Rose Inn
The Rose Inn is located in the beautiful rural area of North Warwickshire in the village of Baxterley with stunning views over Leicestershire, Birmingham and on
into the far distance.

The Rose sits opposite the site of the old Baddesley colliery, behind the village green and duck pond with an orchard and large relaxing area overlooking the pond.

Originally believed to be a 'Gentleman's residence', the building dates back to the 18th century and has served as a courthouse, jail, mortuary and for more than a hundred years as a public house.

Food and setting of the pub was lovely. However the interior was a bit cold and not the most welcoming. Just ok. Just nothing ‘spesh’
Service was ok with a couple of mistakes/changes not made from the kitchen, when brought out, and then the waiter chap was a little clueless. Hey ho. Young staff perhaps.
The lead waitress was polite though even if she did finish each menu change suggestion with “if that’s ok with you”. Eg we don’t have any of this dish, if that’s ok with you, and we will be substituting this or that with parsnips, if that’s ok with you etc! Polite still all the same.
All round I poss would return again, however may also look at other options too.

The carvery is no longer! Instead the Sunday lunch is brought to the table and the lamb wasn’t value for money. Some of the vegetables were not liked by all which is why a carvery is preferred. Unfortunately will not return as not to our taste and much preferred how it was before.

Possibly one of the nicest most tender tastiest steaks I've had in a long time my partner had the fish and chips she said the batter was very light and crispy overall an excellent meal. Staff were friendly courteous and helpful would definitely go again and again

We travelled down from York to visit family and had a lovely meal at The Rose. Set in the tranquil village of Baxterely, this restaurant does not disappoint. Highly recommended.

Nice meal & attentive service. I had the tandoori monkfish which was delicious. My husband did have an upset stomach in the night however-suspect the tartare sauce.

Really yummy home cooked Sunday Roast in a traditional pub. The extra sides we ordered (cauliflower cheese etc) were a little small for the price but we didn't mind. We will return for another nice meal with family and friends

Pub is very dark inside with uneven flooring, steps that are difficult to see.. table was sticky, menu was covered in bits of stuck on food, the Sunday roast was Luke warm at best, and paying extra £3 for a side order that used to be included in Carvery choice (pre Covid) is disgraceful, but at least hot!! Very disappointed by the whole meal

Lovely food, they do it a little bit different due to covid I'm assuming, the fact I only got 2 roast potatoes, 1 parsnip and had to ask for a Yorkshire pudding wasn't very good I don't think the portions were quite the same. I asked for some hand sanitizer and there wasn't any available for me at all. None available when you enter or leave the venue either which surprised me a little bit. Thankfully after some digging around I found some in the car. Overall though it was okay.

I have been to The Rose Inn a few times just for drinks, however this time I took my family for a meal there. The food was really good and had excellent service, its a lovely pub both inside and outside. On summers day it gets busy as its popular with people who know it and dogs are also welcome. Highly recommend.

The menu was very limited all 6 of us was very disappointed . It was our first family meal out since the beginning of the first lockdown so we was really looking forward to it, before lockdown we had been to the rose a few times and the food was lovely,

On this occasion 3 of us had the fish and chips… the fish was really overcooked and was hard and greasy, the chips was dark brown and inedible, 1 had pie and chips hardly any chicken in the pie chips again very overcooked, 2 had burgers that were disappointing, we’re not people that complain but on this occasion we feel that we need to.

Overall everyone’s meal was was very poor quality,
Can’t see us returning anytime soon.

The staff are very helpful and welcoming, the starter and sweet we’re delicious but unfortunately the main was not, I had the belly draft and it was tough to cut through and very chewy! My partner had the pie and said it was nice but he wouldn’t have it again! I would go back there and try another main though.
