A Banff institution....but needs some TLC

I don't think this place has changed in 40 years....and that's not really a good thing. It looks old and dated inside and is in bad need of a facelift. BUT...that said, having a pint here is a must when in Banff. They're one of the few places to see a band and has been doing that for years! They... read more

The food was quite good and service was decent. Great beer selection. The bar is kind of dirty. Could use a bit of a cleaning. Very noisy atmosphere. It is right on main street and easy to find.

We have eaten here many times. The food fits with its pub image, not spectacular but pretty good at covering the basics. The upstairs outdoor patio is a great location in the summer. We had lunch just recently - Shepherd's pie was quite tasty and went down really well with a beer. Service was fast and attentive. In the Summer... More

Disappointed, showed up to dance and the band don't start till after 1030. What a drag. Food was below par, I think they specialize in booze only.

This place never fails to allow for a good time out. I have been here off and on for over 15 years and the quality of service and music for entertainment always impress. This is a good, fun pub! Great wait staff too!

While another establishment in Banff clearly denotes that they have the best patio out there, I will say that Rose & Crown actually does. Especially if you can get a seat on the railing on the Cascade Mountain side of things. The view is fantastic. The railings are actually glass so you can see through them, We have eaten here...

This is one of my fav pub dishes and if it's on the menu, I'll give it a try. This one is now my hands down best in the world. Clearly hand crafted and not supplier made. Good size portion as well. Mainly a locals watering hole with live music every night.

We chose this place at the end of a very long day and boy was I a happy person. We were able to dance and have a great time. The bartender was attentive even though there were tons of people.
