What's happening to the Rose? It was always a great "secret" boozer and Paul is a good landlord. I liked the photo of Johnny Rotton and Sid Vicious eating a takeaway on the tour bus. Also the mystery mural all along the back wall. Has anyone else found the mystery in this painting?
I would never call an old boozer like The Rose
It may not sell lattes & it's Álient base may not frequent the internet to much but it is (was) the real deal, smells & all.
The guvnor as I found him was harsh at times (often) but he went up against some of the meanest of the old school Bermers brigade & stood his ground. He's a proper moody git at times & I could see why some don't take to him.
I've fallen out with the fella myself on more than one occasion but there again he's been there for 25 years so I'd assume most on here would have crossed swords with him(?)
They lost two of their old boys this year.
Archie in January & Patsy this week. Both 86,
RIP to them & the old Rose
