A beautiful country pub, 5 minutes from Alton
Welcome to The Rose & Crown. Located just minutes from the A31 near Farnham and Alton, The Rose & Crown is a traditional, and cosy village pub in the heart of Upper Farringdon, Hampshire.

It is widely believed that the pub was originally built as an ale house in 1810 by Edward Knight, the brother of the celebrated novelist Jane Austen. Visit the Jane Austen Museum, just 2 miles down the road, in the neighbouring village of Chawton.
Known as the 'hidden gem of Alton', enjoy freshly prepared, quality food, and a refreshing drink amongst good company, here at The Rose & Crown. Pre-bookings are recommended.
