The Crown, Borough

I think the previous poster must be a bit mixed up, the crown is definatly not they have described.
it doesnt open on weekends
it doesnt normally have loud music ( sometime no music)
most customers are very nice and come from the local workers of the area.
it has a sign saying no workboots, football tops or tracksuits.

I wouls say that the crown sometimes is more of a restaurant than a pub .

maybe southwarker is trying to mislead people or has simply got the wrong pub.
Also the mentioned "rose and crown" around the corner is in fact a good 10 min walk closer to the henry or the albert, both of which are at the top end of blackfriars rd.

I like the crown, its clean and well kept, it does 3 good ales and keeps the guiness ( my tipple) in tiptop condition.

The Ring, Southwark

location is everything, if this place was away from the station, it would be dead.
we had the worst ever sunday lunch in here , last weekend. staff were fine , meal was microwaved mush, dryed out roast spuds and 3 pieces of leather that was supposed to be beef.

not impressed at all.

also the blackboard outside says 6.95, the menu inside says 8.95

inretrospect , i suppose we got what we paid for as most other places charge over 10 for roast around here

The Green Man, Soho

was in on saturday, waited for ages to be served 4 pints and 4 burgers, pints all needed top-ups, burgers all needed re-naming as they def were not burger as we know it.

Hopefully this place is one of the M&B pubs sold to stonegate, maybe they will do something with it. This place make weatherspoons look posh!
