Welcome to the Rose and Crown. One of the highest pubs in Yorkshire, elevated above the village of Slaithwaite at 988 feet from sea level along with stunning views of the beautiful Colne Valley and over 50 miles beyond on a clear day. You have to travel as far as Northern Poland in search of the next elevation from the Eastern viewpoints in the main bar, restaurant and function room. They may share the same rural setting but are unlikely to offer real ales and homemade Yorkshire pudding.
We specialise in high quality, locally farmed produce sourced from the hills of Yorkshire and the menus reflect our setting with homemade pies, hearty mains and rotating specials. Food is available 7 days from 12 noon right through until 8:30pm with lunch menus, midweek offers, afternoon tea, function facilities along with large party dining with no service charges or room hire costs. Real ales travel from goose eye brewery in Keighley, the well renowned black sheep ale from Masham along with rotating specials from micro breweries within a 15 minute drive of our cellar drop.
Stephen Kerr your host and landlord discovered the Rose and Crown almost a decade ago and turned this venue from a dormant pub with a real possibility of closing forever into the bustling space we see today. A traditionalist who takes great pride in the values of being a publican, keeping a great pint along with exceptional food standards and taking on an active role in charity work and community spirit. The Rose and Crown is an independent pub in a sector filled with chain dining, that maintains a flavour of family values dating back to the first licensee james Shaw in 1832 who's family held residence for almost 100 years.
Our doors are open to family's, locals and dog walkers including their four legged companions. Whether you're gluten free, have muddy boots, or a flat bicycle tire, feel free to sample the delights of this hidden gem at the heart of the newly developed pennine heritage trail, the home of a truly English pub experience.
