Dating back to the 17th century with a tile-hung exterior, the Rose and Crown combines the warmth of a traditional Kentish country freehouse with a first-class restaurant. Situated off the beaten track between the villages of Pluckley, Egerton and Smarden, there are many good walks to be enjoyed nearby. The Rose and Crown lies in farmland in the heart of the Weald of Kent -- 'Darling Buds of May' country. The Village Bar is hop-entwined and has a welcoming fire; the saloon also features a log burner. The Rose and Crown actually sits directly on the parish borders of Egerton and Pluckley. The parish boundary actually splits the building leaving the bar in one parish and the toilets in the other. Pluckley has ghosts, or so the story goes ……..depending on who you talk to, the village and surrounding area has between 12 and 16 ghosts. The Guinness Book of Records which in 1989 named Pluckley the most haunted village in England, puts the figure at 12.
