Dining at The Rose & Crown

It is our goal to eat around the world in EPCOT's World Showcase at the Walt Disney World Resort.  Prior to our last trip, we had eaten at Akershus in Norway, Biergarten in Germany, Teppan Edo in Japan, and Le Cellier in Canada.  Now we can add eating at Rose & Crown at the United Kingdom Pavilion.

 While most of the pavilion is located opposite the World Showcase Lagoon, the Rose & Crown is nestled beside the World Showcase Lagoon.  We had a lunch ADR and asked to sit outside.  Our table offered excellent views of World Showcase Lagoon and we would add this restaurant to the list of possible eateries to book for a time to eat and view EPCOT's Illuminations.

 Here's the boy and the husband enjoying the outside dining.  They are facing the World Showcase Lagoon.

 While the Rose & Crown has the word "pub" in it's title, don't let that scare you away from thinking it is a family place to eat.  Kids have their own menu and the atmosphere is very kid friendly. . . nothing stuffy here.  The word "pub" is meant to tell you that they do serve alcoholic beverages, especially various beers, and that it is quaint.  Both accurate descriptions of the Rose & Crown.

Note that the check in area for ADR's or any other inquiries as to tables for dining is located outside and left of the entrance. 

 The menu offers many British favorite signature dishes.  It was hard to decide what to eat.  The husband had the Filet of Beef and I had the Corned Beef Sandwich.  The boy had a more American meal from the kids menu, but he tried bites of each of our dishes.
 The husband enjoyed a hearty lunch as well as a couple of "ales."  He even came home with a souvenir glass, as show in the photo above.

 The photo above of the rooftops in the pavilion demonstrate the quaintness that abounds as well as reminds me of Bert, my favorite chimney sweep from Mary Poppins.  Can't you just imagine him dancing and singing among the chimneys?

 Since we were celebrating the boy's birthday, the wait staff delivered a chorus of "Happy Birthday" along with a make your own sundae as shown below. . .

The service at the Rose & Crown was great, the food hearty, the atmosphere fun and authentic.  I understand there is often a piano player performing inside later in the day.

We would eat here again.  But first, there are other restaurants to take in as we attempt to accomplish our goal of eating around the world in World Showcase.
