Dogs at the Rose & Crown
Tuesday, February 19, 2019
We reckon we are one of the most dog-friendly inns that you will find.....It only seems right that an authentic rural inn located in the stunning countryside of the northern dales should welcome guests to stay with their dogs. The majority of our rooms are dog-friendly where you will find a some Welly-bix dog treats waiting (these are a craft dog treat made here in Romaldkirk!). We can also provide dog beds, towels for drying after those long muddy walks and pretty much anything else you may need. Unlike a lot of 'dog-friendly' establishments we do not charge for any of this either. Our owners dogs, Mabel, a ginger Jack Russell and Perdy, a yellow Lab can occasionally be seen in and around the Rose & Crown. Mabel is normally present on Mondays as she has her routines that include treats from the beer delivery man and some friendly locals who call in for coffee with their own dog who is perhaps not so impressed about sharing snacks with a greedy Jack Russell. There are fabulous walks from the door with the old railway line being particularly popular as dogs can run off their leads without straying too far. The river is just a 1/2 mile away for the keen swimmers and offers a very scenic route for the owners as well. Dogs are welcome in the bar area which has a stone flagged floor and open fire for warming up. Guests who would like to eat with their dog under the table can enjoy lunch, dinner and breakfast in the bar. The Oak Panelled dining room is the only dog free area, though Mabel has been known to breach this rule at breakfast when the smell of our local pork sausages proves too much to resist! We have recently launched our Dog's Hall of Fame page on our website to showcase guests dogs in and around the Rose & Crown. Owners just need to email us their photo along with a few words and the dogs name.
