Located in the village of Wick, which was home to Black Beauty author Anna Sewell, is The Rose & Crown. This 17th century building was once home to an ambitious local man, John Gully, who went from being a bare-knuckle prize fighter to a successful racehorse owner and then, finally, a popular politician. A well-preserved and sensitively refurbished pub with many original features, the low-slung wooden beams and open fires add to its cosy ambience. There’s an extensive menu with delicious dishes available every day, including an ever-changing specials board. Every Sunday The Rose & Crown also serves up a superb Sunday lunch, complete with a huge Yorkshire pudding, roasts potatoes and gravy. At the bar, there’s an exceptional selection of cask ales, quality wines and soft drinks. A listed 17th century building - now a traditional pub and restaurant - the Rose & Crown was once home to and ambitious local man, John Gully, as his father was the landlord of The Rose & Crown. Gully was crowned champion in 1807 before retiring from boxing in 1808 and took to horseracing. This proved to be a very successful venture for Gully. He won £85,000 when his horse won the Epsom Derby. During his lifetime he also served as a Member of Parliament for Pontefract and was father to 24 children with two wives. He died in 1863 a very wealthy and popular man.
