Great pub, good food, lovely atmosphere
30 November 2018
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.

A wonderful experience, nice, clean fresh environment and friendly staff. When it came to the food we were pleasantly surprised by the offerings - the choice was not overwhelming, I found it was just the right amount variety. I started with the black pearl scallops and prawns lightly fried in a herb butter, for my main course I had the roast pork with all the trimmings followed by the Eton mess. All the food tasted superb and the vegetables weren’t the standard soggy steamed variety, my only criticism is that it was rather a lot of food so it might be worthwhile considering giving smaller portion options for those that prefer it, elderly people or those on a diet, it might also reduce food wastage. Overall though the best Sunday luncheon we’ve had in a while. Great pat on the back for the staff and management.

I think the staff were making the best out of a bad day. They had had a power cut on Mothers Day so I am sure it had taken its toll. The food was ok but service was quite slow. All the staff are very pleasant but we did feel as though we were a bit of a nuisance to them. We were seated in an area away from all other dinners for some reason and whilst htat made it easier to talk, it meant the restaurant lacked atmosphere.

We had to wait half an hour for our table although we had booked the area we waited in was cold and the table we sat at to eat was very draughty. The food was ok I chose a burger, unfortunately it tasted as if it was a frozen Birdseye burger, only ate a quarter of it. The rest of the party had steak, pizza and pie which they said was really good.
I don’t think we will go back there anytime in the near future.
