The Crate and Apple Sunday Roast

It goes without saying that quality and passion are what drives the team at The Crate. Our award-winning Sunday Roast is testament to that. With a choice of beef, pork, lamb and a vegetarian option, Sundays at The Crate & Apple have become a local institution. Sunday Roast is served between 12 -5pm Due to demand booking is recommended

Family-friendly

We are a family friendly pub and proud to be a part of the local community. Whether it’s the local knitting group on a Monday morning or the Sunday night quiz, The Crate & Apple is more than just a pub, it’s the heart of Westgate. And now with the new “Apple Shed” outside area we can seat up to 24 guests in a heated fully enclosed area. So if you’re looking for a traditional Gastro pub, a cocktail in the hidden garden or just somewhere relaxing to stop for a while, The Crate & Apple is the place for you. And remember all pets are welcome. We even have special beers for dogs and cats!
