- Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room
A full-service restaurant that serves British cuisine in both an indoor and outdoor setting. The indoor section resembles a pub, while the outdoor seating is located on a patio overlooking the lagoon. Lunch and dinner are served daily. Dishes as of 2008-09 included potato and leek soup, bangers and mash, and fish and chips.
A key attraction to the Rose and Crown is the selection of ales and stouts including Boddingtons, Bass, Harp, and Guinness (from the Republic of Ireland), as well as Stella Artois (despite being Belgian, it is one of the UK's most popular lagers). Also extremely popular is the selection of quality Scotch and Irish whiskeys served in the bar and restaurant.
