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.

    Good staff, nice food and pleasant surroundings

  • (((** 14 March 2018 by Sue Cawdron from Derby

    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.

    Fantastic food and service

  • (((** 26 June 2017 by Mark Burns from Derby

    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.
