Photo This sign indicates loyalty to the monarch and to England and has done so since the early seventeenth century. From 1868 to 1876 this was the BEERHOUSE, Stoke. In 1925 the license was surrendered in consideration of the removal of the license of the Oddfellows Arms in Well Street to the new Rose and Crown, Stoke, which opened on 21st February 1925. Rose Crown Closeup Church EndThe old pub was described in Kelly's 1912 directory as being in Church End, Walsgrave Road, Stoke, and stood opposite what was then St Chad's church, now St Michael's. The new pub is a few yards farther back in location due to the widening and straightening of Walsgrave Road. In the early years of the twentieth century, the landlord was Walter Cramp, who ran the pub with a rod of iron and refused to let women inside. In those days it was a village local; now it has been swallowed up by suburbia. In 1984 the pub looked good from the outside with hanging baskets, window boxes and coloured glass panels, whilst the interior was rampant Victoriana throughout with flock wallpaper in the bars and striped in the snugs.
