|Gastropub certainly, but rather harshly reviewed methinks. Busy on a Sunday afternoon as expected, but no problem to find a perch for just a (well kept Purity UBU) pint. Good looking place. |

|What a p*ss-take, something like £6 for a vodka, possibly with no mixer, even. From a barmaid who didn't know basic manners, and it wasn't due to her native English... Oh, the price could have been due to the music festival in the park next door, which is reprehensible given the prices in London already, but anyway, I'll be b*ggered if I'm paying to be looked-down upon by someone who I'm giving a better example to. Here's a tip, landlords - instead of employing people who are abjectly rude and incompetent generally, employ people for customer service roles who are GOOD at customer service - there's plenty of those on the dole happy to work at the above minimum wage rates the staff MUST get for those prices... (right?)|

|Upmarket pub opposite Victoria Park. Had a very enjoyable couple of hours in here, but probably only because we managed to bag a couple of seats at the bar, where I was able to enjoy some lovely Redemption brewery beer. Another couple of ales were on too. Had we not got those stalls, though, I probably would have been disappointed. Much of the rest of the pub was turned over to high-priced table-service food, so there is little of a pub atmosphere and not much room for people seeking to just have a few beers. |

|I selected The Crown for Sunday lunch since it was mentioned in a CAMRA guide. My wife phoned ahead and asked if they had a "veggie roast". They said it wasn't a problem and we reserved a table for six people.|
When we arrived in the pub, I was disappointed to find that there were no ales available on the handle, and the staff were too busy to attend to what I would consider the prime purpose of a pub.
Five of our group were vegetarian and we all ordered the veggie roast. We were pretty surprised to find it was just sunday roast, but minus the meat and gravy. A plate of cabbage, potato, carrots and a yorkshire pud.
The landlady seemed to think that this protein free meal was acceptable, where five hungry people did not.
In her defence, we weren't charged for the food, but this place is trying to sell itself as a gastropub and we left having had neither food or beer.
This place needs to up its game or just own up to being another crap pub and stop pretending.

|Mark one London gastro pub, serving one local beer and the ubiquitous Doombar and Broadside. Nothing bad to say about it but nothing to make it stand out either. The food might be brilliant for all I know, but I didn't try it. Minor detail, but chalking up the same tired old quotes about alcohol, drinking and pubs just adds to the rather tired uniform of these places and really irritates me for some reason!|
