As Melbourne pubs go, The Rose is very unusual in occupying a mid-terraced, rather than corner, plot. I don't know whether it's the tattered rag that flies from its flagpole, the bargain-basement outdoor seating, or the cold rectangular facade, but the exterior of this pub doesn't do it the slightest justice.
1884, although the current façade is clearly 20th century. It's also had a brief stint as the, rather harder to pronounce, Geluyckens Belgian Restaurant.
