The Crown, St Margarets - pub details
We re-opened on Tuesday 14th May 2013 after a complete top to bottom refurbishment of The Crown. We have enhanced the Georgian heritage of the original building as well as opening up the stunning Victorian hall to the back of the pub. We are not as family focused as the previous management and have lost the childrens play area but in its place have created a lovely courtyard garden.
We are friendly, independently-owned and individually-styled - Casual enough to be comfortable, smart enough to feel special - Serving delicious freshly prepared food all day. Great for a snack, business lunch, casual supper. We have a private dine room for 24 as well, perfect for your pre rugby lunch!
With 4 cask beers & a great range of wines & fairtrade coffee.

|I commented on this pub earlier in 2013, and am pleased to say the initial quality has been sustained, and its ongoing popularity seems to endorse this assessment. Good beer, very good food (possibly better than the nearby (dare we say it, now slightly tired) Brula (a notable local restaurant), and very pleasant atmosphere. Perfect for settling in, or just a passing by couple of pints. |
One slight quirk - they seem to serve a "quality street" with their Irish coffee - surely a pub of this calibre would make their own after dinner "choccy"!
But otherwise a welcome haven from the rigours of modern life, and a welcome improvement to the slightly gothic Tavern.

|They've certainly spent a few bob doing this place up, turning it into a very high class gaff. How the likes of bjbrummiejohn (see below) ever got through the front door, let alone being allowed to buy a drink, I cannot understand.|
I was in here on August Bank Holiday Monday and there were four very good real ales on - Harveys Sussex Best, Surrey Hills Shere Drop, Hogs Back TEA and Sharp's Cornish Coaster - priced at around £3.50/£3.60 per pint. Not cheap but this is the Twickenham/Richmond area after all. The two beers we tried - Harveys and Surrey Hills - were in very good condition.
As someone has already commented, the food is not cheap and I didn't try it but from what I saw it was excellently presented and there was a wide selection. The pub was very busy and a lot of food was being sold.
I look forward to going back to this pub.

|Pub re-opened after refurb. Service good, the creche aspect has gone, but 12 quid for a burger; I must be missing something!|
Good choice of bitters, I have to say and it does seem well run.

|Well the header to this page says it all and a quick flick through the images leaves nothing for me to add about this pub other than the beer selection.|
In here last Saturday afternoon after 2.00 and quite busy but service was very good.
4 hand pulls for 1 each of Sharpes Cornish Wobbler, Surrey Hills Sheer Drop,
Sam Brooks Wandell and Harveys Sussex Best Bitter.
I had a pint of the Wandell which was nice and cost £3.60 and also a pint of the
Harveys as it's one of my favorites and cost £3.40 and was excellent.

|First time visit yesterday afternoon and by 6.30 all the local tradespeople I used to see at the St.Margarets were there as well! Lovely garden and not smokey. A jug of Pimm's in the sunshine plus a platter of really good tapas. We shall return! |
