Built prior to 1839, this Ale House was situated almost at the centre of Stirchley village. In 1901 it would have consisted of 3 rooms downstairs, 5 rooms upstairs and stabling for 1 horse.
The local hunt would often set-off from the pub in the 1930s and the Stirchley village football club would meet there up until the 1950s/60s.
In 1888 the licensee was fined 10 shillings (50p) for permitting drunkenness.
The body of Barnet Zussman, a salesman murdered in Stirchley in 1867, was laid out at the Rose and Crown.
The pub would have been surrounded by open fields before the building of the Stirchley housing estate in the 1960s.
