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.

    Four of us visited the Rose & Crown for dinner last night. The pub had a really nice atmosphere. The food was excellent and the staff were, as allways friendly and attentive.

    The food was fantastic, couldn't fault it. The service was awful. Food was muddled up, our main came before our starters plates had been cleared and we then waited 25 minutes for 4 children's ice creams. Waited a further 30 minutes to pay the bill after asking for it.

    Disappointed with my main dish - I ordered fish and chips, it looked great on the plate, however once I opened the batter up on the fish, the fish was all dark meat and only about the size of a two pound coin. Lady who waited on the table did not check the booking and therefore did not apply the 20% off the total bill, to be honest I didn't notice until I had got home as I left quickly due to my friend feeling unwell (nothing to do with the food). Pudding was great. Friend who I was with was happy with her meal. Had to wait for a while before our ordered was taken, but on the whole I would eat there again, as I have done several times in the past. I think the chef/s kitchen staff should check the quality of the fish in futre, all batter and little (dark) filling for COD is not good.
