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.

    The food is always good here. Unfortunately the Sunday roast was no longer available at 7:30 on a Sunday. The menu is really good so no problem picking another dish. Staff are very friendly and an overhaul good atmosphere.

    Food was uninspiring overall. There was also a piece of hard, black plastic in my mushroom starter which I did not mention at the time as we were there as someone's guests. The waitress was a trainee but very pleasant and friendly and a redeeming feature.

    My main was good but could have benefited from more veg partner's pork nice and tender but too salty and one mouth full was sour, both sweets were great, the service was great Hollie our waitress was charming and most helpful thanks

  • (((** 30 January 2017 by Wendy Shaw from Ilkeston

    Food excellant but they need someone to meet and greet people. We were left standing for about 2o minutes whilst everyone ran around which ws not a good start to the evening.

    Enjoyed the meal which was reasonably priced and served hot However, the service was really slow. After seating it was 30 minutes before our order was taken and another 30 minutes before receiving it. Also after being given the dessert menu we had another 30 minutes wait. The staff were polite and friendly.

    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!
