Visit The Rose and Crown at Upper Farringdon

 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. Set within the South Downs National Park, enjoying a backdrop of picturesque Hampshire countryside that is immersed in history. 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 beer whilst taking in the unparalelled views of the Hampshire countryside.​ Pre-bookings are recommended.
