Wild Rover

Picture source: Movement80

The Wild Rover was situated at 2 Amersham Road. This pub closed in 2013.
Originally The White Horse. Rather typical of Allied's approach to its pubs at the time, this otherwise pleasant Victorian building sported the most horrendous late 1960s budget flat-roofed extension which, to quote Bob Dylan, fitted 'just like a mattress fits on a bottle of wine' and would have looked more in keeping as an outbuilding at nearby Chesham Hospital. On the few occasions I drank there, I found it nice enough, if a little too bright to be homely and massively underfunded. For the last dozen or so years of its life, it traded under the name of 'The Wild Rover' but now seems to be a kind of impromptu second-hand car lot.
