Dining Out review: Rose and Crown, Morley

editorial image

Nothing beats a good dose of comfort food to complete the end of a long week.

And nothing says comfort more than a traditional Sunday roast.
But when you find somewhere that provides that fantastic roast with a touch of extra pizzazz, then it is all the better.
And that is exactly what is on offer at the Rose and Crown at Morley — all offered in a traditional country pub with friendly staff.

The Sunday menu offers a top-notch range of starters from box-baked camembert to duck liver pate, salt and pepper calamari and lamb kofta — plus traditional Sunday openers such as soup of the day and prawn and lobster cocktail.

But the main event is the roast, which offers a choice of 28-day aged sirloin beef, pork loin, lamb shank or turkey.

I plumped for the turkey, accompanied by lemon and thyme stuffing wrapped in bacon, roast potatoes, honey and thyme roasted carrots, roasted parsnips, seasonal greens and gravy — plus a large, homemade Yorkshire pudding.

All I can say is wow. The main was delicious, a sentiment echoed by my wife who sampled the beef.

For those not too fussed about the roast, there are plenty of other mains on offer including burgers, which tempted my son, steaks, pies, fish dishes and vegetarian options.

Plus there is an excellent children’s menu from which my daughter ordered steamed salmon fillet — not something you see on most kids’ offerings.

Despite being full from a more-than-adequate serving, I couldn’t resist a dessert.

In the offing were raspberry milkshake cheesecake, crumble of the day, a toffee and nut trio and pudding tasting platter among others.

My wife took on the cheeseboard while I plumped for the option of a hot drink and mini pudding of apple pie. Again it really hit the spot, while the kids loved the brownie and ice-cream.

The venue offers many other menues throughout the week and a range of wines and ales. I will definitely be making a return.
