Deep in the Derbyshire countryside in the village of Morley, The Rose & Crown has been trading since 1786, and continues to offer traditional British pub food, with desirable seating by the cosy log-fire or in the pretty al fresco garden. Vintage pieces such as the ornate clock on the mantelpiece and old art also hint at the supposed ancient ghostly Highwaymen which roam the nearby crossroads!

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Rose & Crown menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Rose & Crown ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings at The Rose & Crown in Morley include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In the remote and peaceful countryside north of Derby, The Rose & Crown is just 8 minutes’ drive from Ilkeston.

    We enjoy eating at the Rose and Crown because of the cosy atmosphere and friendly staff. The real fires help on winter evenings to bring a homely feel and to keep you warm!

    A lovely restaurant with a charming atmosphere. Food nicely presented and tasty although puddings were a little on the small side considering the price. Very busy but service was great! Will definitely be visiting the Rose & Crown again and would recommend to others

    I'd say that the Resturant was ok and the food again ok. I wouldn't say it's a must place to come for a meal, it was avarage.

    Booked online for father-in-laws Birthday, asked for easy access table and was given one near a lovely roaring fire on a cold day. The food was lovely and fresh and came very quickly. The staff were very attentive but not too intrusive. Have been many times to this Pub but think this has been the best experience so far!! Many Thanks for upping your came, we shall return soon.

    quick service on arrival , little slow on bar service because at the time was always busy showing people to the table and taking payments.
    Very polite throughout and was busy at the time but didn't show any stress , well organised.

    The meal was very good - my rump steak was the best I had had for a while. We were given a lovely table (prebooked) in a quiet alcove. The staff were friendly. An enjoyable experience.
