Erection date: 1887

Inscription

1787 - 1887

The painted plaster rose and crown are rather lovely but the numbers, especially the 7s, lack any elegance.

We think the pub was rebuilt in 1887 - Victoria's Golden Jubilee year so royalty was in vogue - and that at the time they had some evidence that the pub had existed in 1787.

Site: Rose and Crown pub (1 memorial)

SE1, Colombo Street, 47, Rose and Crown pub

The surrounding architecture is not doing this old-timer any favours. We like seeing pubs with their name integrated into the architecture: a lion, a red barrel or, as in this case, roses and a crown. These pubs are Victorian - people then had confidence in the future and had never heard of slugs and lettuces.
