Little Rose

Little Rose, Cambridge

Picture Source: Stephen Harris

The Little Rose was situated at 37 Trumpington Street. Established before 1830 it is now used as a Loch Fyne restaurant. The publican in 1916 was Ada Buckworth.
Back in the 1960s Frank was the owner and it was a Green King Pub, my mother was called Paula (came from Germany) and was his girlfriend, I was about 8 or 9 and we lived here. It was a old pub then but it was so very nice. As a kid I remember when the Queen Mum visited Fitzwilliam Museum and I watched her from the bathroom window on the first floor. Lots of students came in on lunch time because there was a cold buffet, relatively cheap but very good. It was also B & B so that when we had nice customers Frank had special hours!!!!

My Grandfather, Harry Bond, was the landlord of The Little Rose, 37 Trumpington Street, Cambridge. I am going back to between 1943 and 1960. Grandfather was a feisty landlord, and would tolerate no nonsense from the students. If there was trouble, he would squirt them with the soda syphon. My mother embroidered a tapestry of signatures .
