Rose & Crown Hotel
Tring, Hertfordshire

 

 
Description
 

Dating from the 16th century, this former Tudor coaching inn stands in the heart of Tring, overlooking the town's picturesque church. Tring is a market town set in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside and bordered by the Chiltern Hills and the Dunstable Downs. The justices met here on a highway business in 1711 and from the middle of the 17th century to the middle of the 19th century, it housed the excise office. The landlord in 1832, Timothy Norwood, brewed his own beer and was also an excise man. In 1852 it also served as the booking office for the London and Northwestern Railway Company, and later the Inland Revenue office. Even after coming off the railway, The Rose & Crown was still an important and busy coaching inn and as well as its more aristocratic connection, was also a popular meeting place for local farmers. Beer was brewed on the premises until the 1860s. The original building was Tudor with the addition of an early 18th century frontage of 3 stories with a tiled roof, 5 dormer windows and an archway entrance to the yard. It stood flush to the present pavement and had a bowling green at the rear. The hotel stood in large grounds in which fairs and circuses were held. It was demolished in around 1905. At about that time it was bought and rebuilt in the Tudor style, mainly for the guests of the family, by Lord Rothschild who lived in Tring from 1837 and whose architectural influence can be seen in much of the town. The designer was William Huckvale. Each of the 27 bedrooms at the Rose & Crown is tastefully decorated with recently refurbished bathrooms with marble walls and marble floors. The bedrooms all have direct dial telephones and wall safes.
