E. Rose (NAU), 8 October 1975.

(S1) in file.

The name (that of a type of drinking glass) is said to be unique, but in 1999 there is a public house of that name in Cardiff.
Compiled by E. Rose (NLA), 20 August 1999.

In fact there were several inns of this name in Britain; it derives from the Dutch 'Roemer' a drinking glass.
