Service was fine. R&C is generally well liked, but I found the fish and chips greasy.

I think Rose and Crown is decent, not great. I enjoy it more for lunch than dinner because the pub atmosphere is noisy and casual. We've always had good service.

We like Rose & Crown very much. We go most trips. It is not our first choice in World Showcase, but we do enjoy it. The service is one of the best in Epcot.
Another benefit is that you can view Illuminations from R & C. They have some patio tables with an exceptional view. You can request, but not wait for one of these.
If you are seated inside, they have a private viewing area the server will escort you to to view Illuminations from after dinner. It is only for R & C guests. Although you will be standing, it is a great view.
Make your ADR for about 7:45 and request a patio table when you check in. You may get lucky.
Either way, you will have a good meal, served by friendly servers and a view of Illuminations Reflection of Earth

We ate there in August and absolutely loved it. Our server was extremely nice and quick... We had fish and chips... Cottage pie... Steak... And kids grilled chicken. Everyone loved their meal with zero complaints. The piano player was just great and made for a fun atmosphere with everyone singing along. We loved it so much we booked again for June!!
Have a Disney Day!

We like the specialty drinks there (hubby likes the beer flight, I like the English Rose, also the Welsh Dragon.)

We were just there last SAturday for lunch and we had great service. Food is good (not fabulous, but good) We had the cheese & fruit appetizer (VERY good), and 2 of us had fish & chips, one had bangers & mash. We all thought the entrees were good.

We were full, so no dessert...but in the past we have split the sticky toffee pudding dessert. Very good, but also very sweet.

Our Ratings of Rose & Crown: (5/17/2012)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: C
. . . food quantity per serving: C
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: B
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: A
. . . staff attentiveness: B
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: Rose & Crown is typical English cuisine. Nothing special,
but usually above average in quality. Viewing Illiuminations from
the patio is a good view, although seating on the patio is not reserved
and you cannot wait for a table on the patio. The bar/lounge/pub area
is classic Engish with a great selection of beer and spirits. Additionally,
the "Hat Lady" piano player is excellent. Overall good for drinking and
snacking, but only so-so for meals.

We purposely ordered the vegetarian. (Wanted to see how "the other
half" ate.) A wiser option would be booking steerage class on Titanic.
The vegetable mash was bland and basically tasteless. Thank goodness
Scotch whisky is vegan - it saved the meal. Fortunately, we also
ordered Fish & Chips. Not great at all. Only average. But we left full.

Overall, I had a good time. The service and drinks were excellent. The food was good, although it really didn't taste like anything I ate in London!

We LOVED the Rose & Crown! We really liked the food, but I agree with the other posters that the service is excellent. Our waitress was one of the best we had during our whole trip!
