In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

The Rose & Crown finally closed in July 2011. Most signage had already been removed by mid-month. Planning permission for conversion to a Kurdish community centre was applied for; however, "renovation" work by the group substantially wrecked the building and it appears today to have simply been abandoned in its wrecked state (see gallery).

The pub is shown (though unnamed) on this old OS map of about 1902 (larger map
