The building as it stands today was built in 1836 and up until 1860 it played a prominent part in the life of the local people, even being used as the county court at one time.
The public house is open all day, every day, with food served from Monday to Saturday from 11:30am to 3pm and from 12pm to 3pm on a Sunday. Evening meals are available on request.Website: http://www.theroseandcrownhotelclitheroe.com
