When the pub was recently refurbished it was given this new sign.

The Rose & Crown and its variants, is one of the ten most popular pub and inn names in England and Wales. Usually the sign shows a rose which is half red and half white, and surmounted by a crown. This became the emblem of the Tudor Royal family. In this case the rose appears more red and pink but no doubt that is artistic license. The emblem dates from the end of the War of the Roses (1485), when the victorious Duke of Lancaster (the county of the Red Rose) married Elizabeth of York (the county of the White Rose), thereby uniting the two houses and bringing the war to a close. This pub appears to be of much later date, but pubs continued to be given the name over a very long period.
