Could do with more info? How old is it? No flowers or buds?
Are the leaves reasonably stiff & slightly waxy/glossy?
Could be a thornless climbing rose but it's really hard to tell from photos. I'd cut it to two foot & see what happens next year

It does look like a rose but how did you come by it - did it jut appear and if so was that in a place that roses grew before?

Hi thanks for the reply it just appeared this year the pot has what was supposed to be a patio rose but is dead well I think it's dead it went all Brown and brittle and is much smaller than the other 3 which came with it and are all thriving could it be a sucker??

Unlikely to be a sucker from rootstock because you wouldn't graft a patio rose onto something that grew to 7 foot would you?! I might but sensible people wouldn't ;-)
I'm sure someone will know better than me though

It does look like a rose sucker though doesn't it?

Sure does.

It does :-)
Maybe grafting a small rose onto a really vigorous root does make sense thinking about it
