We really used to enjoy a drink on Friday nights post-work in the Rose and the occasional mid week tipple. Recently, I brought friends over from Greenwich to enjoy The Rose
experience. It was not busy and the tables opposite the bar against the windows were ALL empty.
We couldn't sit down ( told so) even though there was an hour until the tables were due to be taken! It was a really cold evening and rather than standing between tables - some empty yet reserved/ some actually in use, we had to go outside. We left after one drink.
It was freezing and we are non smokers.
has now become an offshoot of Casse Croûte which is great for diners but rubbish for post work drinkers.
What I always liked about the Rose was you could eat if you wanted or not, either way you'd always get a table after not too long, and only ever had a great evening. Bar staff were lovely ! We felt we were 'locals' it's changed to a dining place now and my favourite pub from the last 3ish years is dead.
Such a shame😕
