Rose Crown Hall Green Rd Rose Crown Hall Green RdThe photo above, taken in about 1906 by the Express Photo Co, is reproduced from "The Coventry we have lost" by Albert Smith and David Fry. It shows the original Rose & Crown at the junction of Bell Green Road and Hall Green Road, apparently taking delivery of ale. First mentioned in 1832 as the setting for an inquest into the death of a chap called Brown. The building, was replaced in 1958 with the current modern building set back further from the road (see photo above). This sign indicates loyalty to the monarch and to England and has done so since the early seventeenth century. The pub was used for auctions in 1838. In 1874 and 1876 this is listed as the CROWN. In 1896 this pub was purchased by Phillips and Marriott along with the Royal Oak, Stoney Stanton Road from William and Emma Brain for £3,000. In 1899 they valued the Rose and Crown at £1,750, including a cottage.
