This is used to be a nice pub, but the last Landlady really made a mess of things, they are trying to recover, but it will take a long time.

In here last Saturday and the place is heaving with footy fans watching the Blackpool v West Ham game. Looks like the only pub in the High St showing it.
Dispite this there are lots serving and got done straight away.
Quite a number of hand pulls but couldn't make out what was on offer so went for a pint of the Brewers Gold @3.10 delightfull, then West Ham got the winner.
Game over shortly after so more room as a lot departed so has another pint of
the loverly Brewers Gold.

Not a review exactly but a snippet of news. This potentially very good pub has, I hear, got a new licensee who is experienced and respected in the trade (well, that's what I'm told). His mission? To turn the place into a decent and profitable pub. He'll have his work cut out but it was once such a place (30 years ago), maybe it could be again.

Visited the pub yesterday as was in the area for a mate's BBQ. Adnam's Broadside and Crouch Vale Brewer's Gold on offer. Opted for the former and was delighted and the quality, well kept and served. That said, everyone else in the pub seemed to be on Magner's 'cider' or fizzy lager, but I suppose we are in Essex..

Good job with the renovation and nice to see some well-kept real ales, including straight from the barrel. Good service, too. Pity some of the clientele are still the same, as witnessed by the recent well-run beer festivals when most punters were still drinking lager and Magners! Pub deserves to succeed, give it a go.

This pub has just had a major amount of work done to it and has new owners, I understand that they the Barge at Battlesbridge and the Woodmans Arms at thundersley. The Crown is now a fantastic pub. Good real ales, lagers and the food is exceptional.
They have really turned this one around, the staff are friendly, its just great, well done.

Nice pub, shame about some of the customers who think they own the place....and the whole town.

If you like your iced lager and you oh-so-cold & fizzy Magners, ability to see the footy on tv no matter which way you look, plus games machines and a pool table then this is the pub for you; i.e. if you are (or have a mental age) of under 23.

Else avoid like the plague. No actual beers at all!! Except - now wait for this - Greene King IPA Smooth!!!!! Could it get any worse?!?!?!?!?!

A nice pub at the bottom end of the High Street. got a big makeover at the end of 2004 which has brightened the place up no end. Live music and dj's at weekends and they manage to keep the kids out which is always a bonus. Can sometimes feel a bit soul-less, but worth checking out at least once.
