Red Rose, Greenbrow Road

STOP PRESS: The Red Rose has reopened!

One of the more recent Wythenshawe estate pubs to close, the Red Rose stands at the top of Greenbrow Road on the corner with Firbank Road in Newall Green, near the Roundthorn Industrial Estate.  It was a keg-only Greenalls house when Alan Winfield visited in 1995, and even if it does reopen it's unlikely to be a real ale haven on this estate.

The Red Rose and some of the neighbouring houses around here are characterised by corrugated iron cladding, and the story goes that some of these buildings were temporary, post-war pre-fabs which have remained and been converted into standard council housing.

  1. It's really sad that Newall Green has so little cask ale on offer. Apart from The Newall Green (Joe Holt's) I can't bring another to mind - although there may be more.....perhaps they're hiding.
