Square Meal Review of The Old Crown ?

An old pub with a young heart, this watering hole mixes handsome period features with chunky wooden tables & a lively vibe. The hip staff may be a tad disorganised & occasionally aloof, but this doesn’t stop hordes of funky West End workers from packing the place when their day is done. Eight names appear on the taps, from Grolsch to Hooky Bitter & Tribute Ale, supplemented by easy-drinking wines from a compact, New World-dominated list. The menu of pub classics such as bangers & mash & weekend roasts was hijacked by much-hyped pop-up Burger Breakout in late 2012; although the chef residency has now come to an end, the menu has remained.

  1. Burger Breakout is situated in The Old Crown on New Oxford Street, across from the site on which the former 'Ultimate Burger' restaurant resided (and which is now a Prezzo). I'd heard a lot of buzz around the Burger Breakout pop-ups over the summer, and was keen to take a down a burger or two to see what all the fuss was about...

    Fd Over LDN :: You make me wanna breakout

    3 months after his successful Pop-up at Chad's Place (see here), Dave Ahern is back with a permanent, and even more adventurous, venture in the heart of London, a stone's throw from the British Museum. The foundation of the menu is built on those burgers at the pop up, so the whiskey beast, swine time, the Bambi Bought it, and the baa-baa baby. In addition to these are the OC burger (with Devon Long Horn patty), the camilla burger (chicken burger), and the 'I don't need your bull' veggie option. Each comes with it's own bespoke sauce befitting it's own meat. The choices don't stop there though with steak, chicken wings (10 different sauces!),... each dish has it's own unique twist, with undoubtedly a lot of labour (and love) required to go into each of them..
