The Rose & Crown is one of Worthing's most popular and respected pubs, with an excellent reputation for food and real ales.

This 1896 map, shows one public house (PH) and two inns. The difference being that at that time, inn's had to offer food and accommodation and were covered by differing licensing laws.  This practice is now redundant.

The 1881 census, shows the Rose and Crown at 145 Montague Street. Building numbers would change as new buildings were erected.
