I visited the Crown on Saturday, the staff booked our group a table where we could watch the cycling on TV and service was great. Also thought the fish and chips were excellent. Thanks!

Good roasts. Nice beers. Amazing location. Outdoor seating. But very very popular, if you haven't booked when it's nice and sunny forget it. Love it.

A light and airy jewel of a pub just opposite the gates to Victoria Park, home to buzz and banter, comfort and charm, as befits an East End boozer. Couple this with a delicious range of hearty English cooking and an array of fine wines and ales as well and you can see why the Crown is so popular with locals and visitors alike.

The Crown is a cool and unique pub to catch up with friends in the East End, whether out front in the beer garden, upstairs on one of the terraces or in the main bar on one of the faux fur stools with full views of the range of real ales, bottles beers and a beautiful selection of fine wines.
