Ye Olde Rose & Crown, Stafford

Built around 1830

Ye Olde Rose and Crown sits snugly on Market Street, just off the market square between the Gatehouse Theatre and Stafford’s fabulous central library. We’re really proud to have our Stafford Tap house, because Joule’s has a very long history in Stafford and the old Brewery had lots of houses in the town.

Ye Olde Rose and Crown was built around 1830, but the extensive cellar with an arched ceiling are substantially older, forming part of the original ale house. We restored this cosy, characterful quintessential ‘hole in the wall pub’ in 2011. Revealing original panelling which lay hidden for years, wide oak board flooring and a commission for the biggest Joule’s etched mirror, depicting an original design for Joule’s Slumbering Monk.

The back bar has a real fire and is just as cosy as the front room. To the rear there is a great walled beer garden, perfect for an afternoon lunch break or perhaps a quick interval visits from the Gatehouse Theatre.

Showcasing the full range of Joule’s cask conditioned ales, it also proudly won Staffordshire CamRA Pub of the year in 2015.

Don’t miss, the great beer snacks and acoustic music night every Wednesday

There is easy street parking on Market Street, for a longer stay we recommend the new Riverside parking complex a 5-minute walk away.

Please note: Ye Olde Rose and Crown welcomes children until 8.30pm
