Its so wonderful to read and see photos from our past... We took over the Rose & Crown a year ago (almost to the day) but have been local residents to the Pub for almost 21 years, so its always nice to find some History and good reviews about the place.

We would love to hear if you have any further photos or even old copy's of documents etc for the building as its something we are very interested in.

We've heard rumour, thought non of us can remember, that there used to be a poem written on the end wall of the building, we would love to know what it was, and hopefully make a memento towards it in the Pub.

Thanks guys

JaiB!

Jai B, it wasn't a poem, it was a puzzle.

They were set into the wall of Thomas Francis house which was next door I think.

There was a humourous one aimed at the drinkers who used to lean against the wall.

When worked out it said, "A rubbing stone for asses"

They're in the civic centre now.

Here's some links to more info about them.

I was clearing out some of my late father's possessions and found a biro inscribed in gold letters 'A MERRY CHRISTMAS from ARNIE & CAROL THE ROSE AND CROWN BEBINGTON'. They were handed out to all the customers. I was with him that night, I think it was Christmas 1972 or 1973.

We used to call in there occasionally in the 60s for a lunchtime pint (we worked in Port Sunlight).

The Rose and Crown had in the late 50s - early 60s a land lord named Harry Page whose name everyone locally knew as the main man representing R + Cs business for years after his death
