I recently popped in one lunchtime. Great beer they had local brewery offers apart from the standard Fullers. The food for London prices was good value as well. The landlord told me they had only been there a year so guess different to the review below.

I've been popping in the Crown since before the windows got smashed in all round. I liked it then, and I like it now, but only because the beer is ok and I have good memories of the place. Very up itself now. I go elsewhere for a proper pub. Thank goodness the beer is ok.

While visually, a charming, Victorian pub with good food, the service leaves a lot to be desired. Ive been a regular there for over 10 years and sadly, its now pretending to be something its not and is at the stage where if something is not right or you need to make a complaint, you are in the wrong. Instead taking feedback from a regular, (formerly) loyal customer, they will try to argue their way out of it. To prove a point. Even over a slice of bread. No apology, no grace, and one regular customer less. This has happened a few times recently. Perhaps Mary Portas will turn to pubs and come sort them out? Instead of sorting the problem and smoothing things over, you will end us leaving with an even worse experience. Ultimately, it is part of a chain and the mentality born of corporate training reigns. If you dont like it, dont come back. Its a waste of what used to be a great gastro pub but there a lot of other options nearby so unless youre the type never to complain, dont waste your time with The Crown. I wont. Im so done, Fullers need a new word for done.

This place seems to get better every time I visit. Very nice food, good range of Fullers beers (+ a guest ale) and a lively atmosphere.

It's also a very pretty looking establishment (inside and out) in a rather nice area.

A strange place for Fullers but I liked it. Large central bar with lots of "eating "tables surronding it. Nice cosy area at the rear by the open kitchen.

Excellent Pride (very reasonable for the area at 3.25) plus ESN. Red Fox and (Gales) Seafarerers on offer yesterday. Service was fine although the place got pretty busy very quickly in the evening.

Well worth seeking out.
