SquareMeal Review of
In its latest guise, The Rosendale steers a midway path between its original identity as down-at-heel boozer & its more recent incarnation as upmarket gastropub. The boomy, barn-like interior
has been updated with dark wooden floors & furnishings, while the appealing menu aims for quality as well as value. Our squid, cuttlefish & chorizo salad was full of flavour, & we also
liked the bresaola carpaccio with rocket, celery & Stilton dressing. Fish & chips, steaks & burgers are there for big appetites, though its pays to opt for something more complex such
as jasmine tea-smoked sea trout with borlotti & runner beans, roasted tomatoes, olives & a duck egg. To finish, the British cheeseboard is a good call, & the diverse wine list includes
plenty of affordable choices.
