user reviews of the Rose and Crown, Belgravia

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A traditional pub with a good atmosphere in the middle of the hoo ray Henry land of Belgravia. A good layout, a pool table and down to earth friendly regulars. The beer selection is a bit unadventerous but they have London Pride on draught and it's well kept so for the tradtional English ale drinker you can probably drink that all day long.

Well worth a vist. Long may pubs like this continue as genterification continues.

Excellent proper pub. Good quality beer, cheap food and a friendly welcome from staff and other customers, not what you would expect to find in this area!
Worth making a detour from Kings Road to find this.

Uninspired pub with little of interest in decor, atmosphere or beer (Spitfire, Bombardier, the former was had and was fine).

I meat to say 'Nice little boozer with decent PRICES'. The Masons at Queenstown Rd could learn from this place.

Nice little boozer with decent boozer. A great place to go to get away from all the upper class chavs down the road

A nice pub pub just off the beaten track of Kings Road. Was surprised to find it so down to earth compared to the other Gastro-pubs in the area. Lots of space outside including benches and canopy. The bar is huge, but not too shabby looking. Two real ale pumps, Spitfire and Bombardier. Two "T" bars with lagers, stour and bitter. Loads of old soldiers from the Royal Hospital Chelsea come to this place including two that are like Statler & Waldorf from the Muppets. Hilarious!

The cute bar maid was very bubbly and polite. Good Guinness on tap. Much better than some of the other places I have been to. The pool table takes up quite a bit of space, but the locals all seem to enjoy watching the games.

I didn't have any Thai food this visit, but the smell was heavenly. The punters looked like they were enjoying the food. All in all, a nice wee place.

A surprisingly down to earth sort of pub, given the area, with sport on the TVs and a pool table. Not that large inside, but plenty of benches along both frontages. The bar staff were efficient enough too. Two handpumps - Bombardier and Spitfire (decent enough, and rather cheaper than I was expecting at 3.15).

Been here a few times. Had a thai meal int he evening and thought it was superb and authentic too. Pleasant atmosphere, mainly Chelsea Pensioners and retired Military personnel. Pleasant bar staff too. Will definately return when in the area.
No pretentious Chelsea sloany type in here, thank God

hhhmmmm sloane square but a lack of sloaners in here, bit of an odd place, beer okay, service fine, but as previous reviewers noted there is a locals underbelly feeling, couple were not friendly when friends beat them at pool, still a gastro pub site in waiting

Trying to get a drink around Sloane Square is a bloody nightmare. Yes, I know it's my own fault (what was I doing there in the first place?), but someone was offering me a lift and we had arranged to meet there. I had half an hour to kill so trudged around a bit gazing through the plate glass of various poncy-woncy bars and was beginging to despair until I stumbled across a down at heel backstreet boozer, the Rose and Crown.

There was stale spitfire on tap and a pool table, I loved it. Could have done without the lip from the drunken Oirish git propping up the bar. Get the sense there are some "local" issues in here. A thoroughly deserved 4/10.

delicious Fosters, friendly staff. Good juke box.

My most recent visit was just before last orders on a Saturday night and it was a sight for sore eyes. Then again, I had just stormed out of a Wetherspoon's (I know, I know, I should know better). One that I'd definitely like to visit a little more to get a real feel for it.

Slightly strange but agreeable place. The feel is a little out of place for the area - old fashioned (though nothing wrong with that!) 1930s interior with an oddly massive bar area. The space occupied by the bar is almost as big as the seating area, you could get a pool table behind there. In fact there is already one on the punter's side of the bar. Comfortable interior though the clientele was strangely polarised between ancient but venerable old soldiers from teh Royal Hospital a spit away and the uber-young hooray henrys who looked like they were bunking off sixth form college. They all looked and sounded like Prince William and Harry.. I'm sure I sat next to Roddy Binkerton-Twitte and his girlfriend Sohpie Fluff-Crumpette.. Anyway, the boozer was marked by a fantastic pint of Spitfire - delicious, tasty and vibrant .. a bit like the aformentioned Sophie ..

Didn't think there were still good "old fashioned" pub's around with a warm welcome, friendly staff/local's and good beer!
Good location with plenty of tables outside, great selection of both old and new sounds on the jukebox and reasonable pub food...

Stay away unless you like being served stale ale by a really rude landlady. Place was so much better when Eamon ran it.
anonymous - 26 Mar 2006 00:51
great little pub, looks like it is starting to happen, at last, as the land lady is working 24/7 on her own, looking forward to the next visit........

Second pub on our pubcrawl and this pub HAS changed for the better by the decoration. Well done. It was know as a "squaddie" pub but now it's a mix of sloanies and local's. The lady behind the bar was friendly but the pub can do with a professional manager to help achieve more. Beer was ok. Pool table also.

I think the last comment was harsh, the rose has improved a great deal since Bernie's take over. Yes it does need re-decoration and is in the process of doing so. This is an up and coming pub and the staff are working hard improving these hurdles sucessfully, also the Irish manager is not there anymore which is a blessing as he was ruining a diamond in the making. Improving a bad pub takes tremendous work so go in and watch it grow into a fun, friendly place. Give the place and staff a chance to shine.

Enter this place safe in the knowledge that you will have the worst drinking experience of your life. The landlady was exteremly rude and the beer was exceedingly poor.
anonymous - 23 Feb 2005 02:43
Place is in dire need of redecoration. I was horrified by the rudeness of the staff. Avoid!!!
anonymous - 21 Feb 2005 01:08
This place could be such a great pub if only it was decorated and the pool table removed.(to much swearing and arguing).The staff are freindly and the locals are a laugh to listen to.Near sloane sq tube so a pint before going home.

The Rose and Crown is not the nicest of pubs could do with a make over.However the Landlady was chatty anf friendly, a lovely lady and the polish man was sweet and helpful. Food was of good standards very nice.The locals seemed to enjoy the pool table.good prices and duke box good. Good pub but the Irish Barman with a moustach was a bit cocky and full of rubbish.
