Property Features:

As the county town of Staffordshire, Stafford has excellent transport links, and thriving town centre. As a busy town centre and 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. The Brewery are really proud of the Stafford Taphouse because they have 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. The site was 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 etched mirror, depicting an original design.

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.
