Square Meal Review of The 3 Crowns ?

Strategically placed to profit from N1’s ‘silicon roundabout’, this new indie gastropub has plenty of decent beer to reboot a geek’s flagging brain cells. Try Hackney Brewery’s American pale ale or Norwich microbrewer Redwell’s Czech-style pilsner – both available on tap. Wines include some accessible Old World names as well as patriotic representatives from Outhwaite’s South Downs vineyard. Sober decor is stripped back to the point of innocuousness, shifting the focus onto a bustling open kitchen alongside the wood-panelled dining area, where reasonably priced British grub is given a slight French accent: order vichyssoise, rabbit terrine, rollmops or cold roast Middle White pork with celeriac rémoulade, ahead of spiced oxtail with sweet potato mash, onglet steak or potato pancakes with goats’ curd and mint. Otherwise, a three-course lunch offer (£18) rounds off with the likes of gooseberry fool.

    It’s not just about the pretty plates at this quaint Shoreditch dining room. Arriving unforgivably early for dinner one evening, and having already burned time by missing the correct bus stop, I decided to wait for my date at the restaurant (certainly beat hanging around Old St roundabout). Tucked away in the back of a local boozer, this quaint dining room with an open kitchen oozes charm. On first impressions, it might appear to be a bit of an afterthought, playing second fiddle to a successful pub. But how wrong you would be...
