E TA left this review about Rose & Crown

Still as described by Steve, below, I was pleasantly surprised to find this isolated patch of England in the pit of multicultural dystopia that is the High Wycombe backsteets. The staff were friendly, the locals chatty, and we felt every welcome here. Two ales on, Doombar and Pride, neither perfect but both drinkable. It is, as implied, a good local boozer, and if I were ever stranded here it’s somewhere I would go for a quick pint though its location would put me off including it in a crawl.

The Rose and Crown is a one bar corner local which has survived the redevelopment of the area due to the Eden centre shopping centre. The Rose was my work local for five years in the 80's and was an oasis in the badlands near Desperate Avenue. It was always a solid corner backstreet no frills local with good ale and good custom.
And I was more than happy to find that not a lot has changed in the intervening 20 years. The interior has been done up a bit but it is still a solid one bar back street local with separate distinct drinking and seating areas around the L shaped bar. Three handpumps on the bar and two were going at the time of my visit dispensing Fullers London Pride and Courage Best. It still has a bit of an indulgence on fruit machines, but as my time as a local here coincided with the emergence of video pub games and I spent an absolute fortune homing my gaming skills on Donkey Kong, I will forgive it that.
So, to put it in perspective, The Rose and Crown is a solid local back street pub.
