formerly Rose & Crown, Kicking Dickey, Kicking Donkey
Pub had reopened post-lockdown, but had to close on September 7th as the landlord tested positive for Covid-19. Presumably will reopen in a few weeks?

After eight years closed, the Rose reopened in April 2019. The old interior has been completely ripped-out and the pub has been refurbished inside and out.
There are four lines for Real Ales (two will be in use initially) and there may also be guest ales in polypins. There's a separate restaurant area (the landlady already has a successful catering business in Bramford) and a nice outside drinking area.
