The Rose and Crown first opened as a beer house and was located on the south side of Brearley Street, on the corner of Hospital Street.

On the evening of April 19th 1931, the licensee James Jones collapsed and died as he was preparing to draw some beer for a customer.

More information on the Rose and Crown on Brearley Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Rose and Crown from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Rose and Crown. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
