Sadly this pub is now CLOSED..A real shame as it was great for a drink on an away trip

Found it to be a reasonable pub and the ale was okay.

New landlord! From what I have heard on the hop vine, 4 ales on, no idea what brewery's as yet, looks like it's on the mend!

Sadly, the Rose has deteriorated heavily since Val passed away. Called in one evening last week to find NO cask ales on at all. Not surprisingly we went elsewhere.

Called in here before the game. Proper good pub. Excellent landlady. Friendly locals and excellent beer (I was drinking 'Bitter and Twisted' which was as good as anything I've had for many a long day). Unfortunately the footie result went against us but I'll be back here the next time we play Bury hoping for the same beer but a different result.

A great pub with a landlady who was willing to serve us all the food she had at quick notice on a Saturday before the football. We were travelling from the south and away supporters but the locals and the staff were pleasant enough and the chicken soup was to die for at 1.50 a go. Real ale a plenty and good quality at a good price - I enjoyed the experience and wanted to return after the game but the troops decided city centre Manchester instead. Don't ask a cabbie to take you there as there are 2 R&C's and they want to take you to the other as it's a bigger fare - this one's old Manchester rd and only 10 mins walk from the train station/tramlink place.

Used to be a brilliant pub, but doesn't deign to open half the time these days.

Haven't had the beer quality problems other have mentioned. However, when matches are rearranged, they don't seem to find out and therefore don't prepare for them. However, they made a great effort on Saturday when they did find out.

Another example of bad service last night...big game at Gigg with lots of extra customers. Only one ( slow and unobservant) bar staff. Landlady hiding upstairs.
This could be a GREAT pub with a bit more attention to customer service.

Terrible. For many years was one of the best, if not the best, pub in Bury. Under the current management beer quality is shocking, opening hours have been reduced and the whole place lacks atmosphere.

Still a great pub for pre match and post match pint. I understand however that the Pub Management Company policy means there is little incentive for staff to pull their tripe out.

Used to be a superb pub - used to have great beer and a great atmosphere. Sadly the current regime have little interest in decent beer or professional service. A pub that's been rapidly going downhill for the past 3 years. I don't bother much anymore but last time I went in with a local quiz team (who've been using the pub for years) 3 pints of vinegar were returned to the bar but the infamous landlady refused to change them. The quiz team, like many old regulars, have voted with their feet and now drink elsewhere. A terrible shame - once one of my favourites! I can only hope we get a new landlord/landlady soon who understands why the pub used to be so popular!

Nice little place. Seems to do a few real ales, and all the beers seem to be well kept. It's got a real local feel to it because of it's location, but it's close enough to the town centre to be a good starting point for a night out in Bury.

Pleasant pub in a little backwater. Was originally the Rose & Crown, changed to Tap & Spile and then back again. Usually has 3/4 real ales on tap. Can get very busy when Bury are at home and during Bury Beer Festival. Have been coming in here once or twice a year (I don't live in Bury)since it was the Tap and John & Helen were the landlord & landlady. I still see them occasionally although they are no longer a couple. It's a nice little locals pub. Recommended.

Nice pub that has been there for some years judging by pictures on the wall. Quite hidden away so the crowd are locals mainly and those who sniff out a good pint. Ales always changing.

Great selection of well kept real ales, when demand is there. During less busy times only a couple are avaliable but what is there is excellent. Quality over quantity is always a better option. No food other than wednesday curry night.

Up to 6 varying real ales on at once, handy for Gigg Lane.
