Overview

Located on the North Brink in Wisbech, a characterful pub (Free House) specialising in real ale where a friendly and a warm welcome await both you and your Kanine friend. You will regularly find tipples such as Woodforde's Wherry & London Pride on the pumps along with guest appearances from both local & national breweries both small & large such as Elgoods & Tydd Steam, from the Wisbech area stretching far and wide with beers from St Austell, Charlie Wells, Batemans, Eccleshall & Brains to name but a few. Although dogs are very welcome, we recommend avoiding bringing them along during our busier time e.g. Friday evenings, our pub is relatively small and we would hate for your dog to get trodden on. Our annual beer festival is held on the last full weekend in June, where we aim to have a good selection of 20-25 real ales, sourced locally, regionally and nationally. There is usually live music on Saturday night, Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening to entertain all our customers. All in all it's a fab weekend, rain, wind or shine!

Found this historic public house when we met up with friends and family after a Wisbech Society Talk on pubs held in the nearby Wisbech grammar school. An interesting pub with a knowledgable land lord. It’s located a little further down the brink than others...More

When we failed the initial intelligence test of finding and opening the door the landlord and customers encouraged us to join in and made us feel very welcome. Beers tried all in excellent condition. A really excellent community pub.

Spent a very pleasant evening here with my best friend. We were made very welcome by the landlord. Small range of very well kept real ales. No music, no food just beer and talk, just what a pub should be!

The Rose Tavern is hands down one of the nicest pubs in Britain. Great location. Always good beers on. Friendly staff and punters.

If it's a real old fashioned pub you are looking for then look no further. Don't visit Wisbech without a trip to the Rose. Alway's a friendly welcome and a choice of Real Ales to choose from. These pubs are a real find these days...More

A fantastic place to spend a winters evening. There are a good selection of reasonably priced real ales available, including a number of locally-sourced beers, and with a friendly welcome, a roaring fire and a traditional inn-terior, there aren't many better places to spend an...More
