The Rose and Crown Public House - Stirchley

The Rose and Crown Public House - Stirchley

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.

Just read the comments. My dads 3 x great grandad is also george roden. His name is john lloyd . I know that george roden and his wife sent two of their sons to America by ship, to make a new life because of the depression. Their daughter Kathleen is my great grandmother. If you have any more information i would love to hear from you.

I was delighted to find this picture & information on the Rose & Crown as it is part of my husband's family history. His 3 times great grandfather George Roden was involved with this establishment. The 1881 census shows the Roden family residing there and George's occupation as "publican".

I understand that there was a second row of terraced house off Northwood Terrace on the opposite side of the road to the current row of terraced houses.

It was directly behind the Rose and Crown where the electricity poles are now.

If anyone has any photos, I would be delighted to meet for a cup of tea and a chat or even a brew in the Rosie!!
