A one-time beer house and brewpub. The full pub license wasn't granted until March 2nd 1960.

It's now residential.

Originally the Rose & Crown was a beer house and was probably started by William Turner, then later run by his son Joseph.

George Daiper was the landlord from 1875 to 1898. The last Victorian independent brewer in Stowmarket, George also ran the Crown Brewery associated with the beer house.

By 1916 the pub was owned by Greene King . It closed in 1992.
