Squaremeal 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.

Had an extremely enjoyable night out with work friends last Thursday. Fantastic atmosphere and a great crowd. There is a sign outside claiming “best burger joint in London” and it stole our curiosity and drew us in. Most tables were already reserved but the staff were very helpful and managed to fit us in comfortably. Burgers were actually amazing and did justice to the sign outside. The interesting combination of ingredients really bring a whole different meaning to burgers. One of my colleagues...

We went to the Old Crown knowing it was a pub in a busy part of London but near the theatre. I arrived first and I have to say the greeting (or lack of) that I got from the two young men at the bar was miserable. They didn't know about customer service at all. I am sad to be writing this as we haven't often been let down by restaurants/pubs we have found on square meal but we were by this experience. I told the young man when we left what I had felt so this review will be of no surprise. The tapas...

I regularly meet friends at colleagues at the Old Crown after work. I have always been really impressed with the quality of food and wine selection. I would also recommend the lunch menu, great burgers! Lunch is served 12-3.30pm and dinner from 5-10pm. Atmosphere is pretty relaxed, not too poncy. Prices are pretty reasonable too.
