About the Pub

Corner local just outside the Victoria Shopping Centre and Bus Station, famed for its Watson Fothergill designed exterior. Single roomed pub, with alcoves and comfortable seating. Beers from the Punch portfolio.

Historic Interest

The Rose of England is a fine Neo Gothic Victorian public house designed by the famous local architect Watson Fothergill. Built for the Nottingham Brewery Company in 1898 as a brewery tap for its adjacent York Street brewery. A Grade II listed building (No.1058995). An earlier Rose of England was demolished in the 1890s as part of the work on the Great Central Railway's station. Once known as the Yorker, for the old brewery, the City Alehouse and the Filly & Firkin as a nod to an even earlier incarnation. At one time a Whitbread / Tennants pub, then Ansell's and then a Firkin house. Built on the site of the early 19th century pub Filho da Puta, named after the winner of the 1815 St. Leger Stakes at Doncaster. Subsequently at stud in Farnsfield, the stallion Filho da Puta died in Mansfield in 1835, his son Birmingham winning the 1830 St. Leger. The name is Portuguese for "Son of a Whore" or "Son of a Bitch" and was possibly a phrase made popular by British soldiers returning from the Peninsula War against Napoleon. In 1874, the Filho da Puta was fully licensed under landlady Mrs Harriet Wood (Wright) and in 1894 the Rose of England was also fully licensed under William W. Chambers (Wright). As at November 2017, the Rose of England freehold (NT151746) was held by Punch Partnerships (PTL) Limited [Reg. No. 3512363] and was transferred to Star (Heineken) on the 5th March 2018.
