Romsey pubs history index
The Tudor Rose is described as "This modest looking house has probably the longest history of any pub in Romsey. It is made of massive oak timber beams placed close together as was the style in the 15th century. Above the bar is a splendid half-timbered Tudor Hall with a stone fireplace. Unfortunately, fire regulations stop the room being opened to the public. The hall was the meeting place of the Guild of St. George, which was the forerunner of Romsey Corporation. For many years the age of the Bugle, as it was then known, was not realised. Building work in 1928 revealed its true age, and it was renamed the Tudor Rose." - this waffle basically means it is a modern pub, built on an old site, and possibly there is nothing in the pub design which is less than five years old. It actually looks more like a council house which has been purchased by the owners. I am sure it is a great pub, this is not in question.
Just to clarify after some research, this was a house in the 1901 and 1911 census, although the Dolphin Hotel was at 11, and the Eagle inn at 3 Corn Market etc. (estate agent speak slips into describing a modern pub, methinks).
