History of Minnies The structure of the old Rose & Crown would have indicated that it was built for a private residence but there are no records available to confirm this or to say when the sale of beer first took place. However it was a free house up until June 1918. Up to that date the owners for a considerable number of years were the Wild family and the sold out to Tomlinson’s Anchor Brewery.
During the year 1920 Mr and Mrs Irvine Lee took over the tenancy and after Mr Lee died in 1953, Mrs Minnie Lee carried on as tenant for a number of years until just before the building was altered. Mrs Lee could claim a lifetime’s connection with the Rose & Crown as she can remember as a girl standing on a box to wash glasses whilst the Wild’s were tenants.
Whilst she was a licensee she had a wonderful understanding with the customers. One outstanding feature showing this, was that instead of walking backwards and forwards for change from the taproom she always had a jar filled with cash, sometimes up to £4 or £5, and this was left unattended on a table. Not once was there any suspicion of money being taken, a tribute to the customer’s of that day.
