This used to be such a great little pub. We just met for a quick mid -week meal. Fish and chips was shocking. Soggy batter and barely any flesh inside - how can you get something so simple so wrong? The quiz was fun thoughMore

Lovely food, British with a different touch. The decor gives a special and welcoming atmosphere. A bit pricey but worth it.

Description
A light and airy jewel of a pub opposite the gates to Victoria Park, just a short stroll from London Fields. Whether it's catching up with pals over a pint or a bite to eat in our beautiful dining room, we've got it covered. You are spoilt for choice at The Crown with the pub spanning over two floors and a beautiful terrace overlooking Victoria Park. The Chefs offer a tasty selection of British seasonal, homemade dishes available from brunch to Sunday lunch. There’s so much choice at the bar from real ales, craft beers and spirits to a vast wine list. The Crown is a jewel in Bow not to be missed.
