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.
