In leafy Wimbledon lies The Rose and Crown. Dating back to the 1600s, this dainty suburban pub is the oldest lease on the Young's Brewer's books. A famous hotspot for literary greats, such as Swinburne, it now provides drinkers and thinkers alike with all of the pleasantries of the English countryside within brisk rambling distance to the city's famous English Lawn Tennis Club and shopping centre.
Beyond the thick wooden beams in its rich décor, The Rose and Crown offers modern amenities such as Sky Sports, for when the tennis is on, and outdoor heaters so you can cheerfully enjoy its garden even if the weather is predictably English. You can enjoy some of Young's finest guest ales and -in true Wimbledon style - even serve Pimms on tap; the perfect accompaniment for the seasonal dishes on offer. Made using the freshest British ingredients available, the menu of gastro pub treats is sure to please.
But if you're not hungry for dinner, perhaps breakfast will appeal to you, after spending the night in one of their lavish hotel rooms, which all come with en-suite bathrooms and Sky TV. Dogs are welcome as well as kids, so you can head down for the day with the whole family or even book now for a secret couples retreat.
