At a guess I'd say Superstar too, because it's that colour, that shape and is widely planted - but it could be one of very many, some of which can be found on this site http://www.classicroses.co.uk/
Can't see very well from this distance but could be Pyrus salicifolia.
Sounds like one of the ox-heart varieties to me.
Depending on the size - I'd probably pot it on next spring and again later in the summer as it grows, and then plant it out in spring 2017 - just so that it gets additional tlc while it's small.
