2nd Apr 2013 - An unexpected find right near a crap hole I've been too before. The city pride down the road is among the worst pubs in central london and this is at the opposite end of the scale. Its a trendy pub with plenty of beer choices and a comfy layout with some distinct areas to sit in. I was in the front bar bit and it was comfy had a small crowd of presumably youngish regulars on a sunday afternoon which is a good sign as this is a fairly central pub and is surrounded by pubs that don't even make the effort to open up on a sunday. Trendy casual pub with beers galore and a good interior. Whats not to like? Oh and the service was friendly and beers were recommended with a smile. Also in my notes I've written Colanders on the ceiling but my visit was a while ago and it seems an odd thing to have on a pub ceiling so it may be an inaccurate statement. Hopefully I wont get sued by this fine establishment.

23rd Jan 2009 - Good solid pub, wide range of beer, would give it a higher rating if not for the steep pricing.

2nd Aug 2007 - I believe I went on a date here once.. Unlike the girl, The Crown is worth another visit.

1st Aug 2007 - I like the Crown for its large outdoors space on clerkenwell green, for being convenient for other places, for being bohemian but not poncey, and for the choice of unusual bottled lagers - like Pacifico Clara, a light mexican summer beer that I haven't drunk since I was in - er - Mexico. I don't like that it gets v crowded and that it can take a while to get served at peak times. go in a group so you dont have to get too many rounds in.

29th Jul 2007 - Loads of space - both out and in, with little corners inside. Food good, with lots of flat bread options and meze platters. I agree with the comments about nice bar staff. And they do hot chocolates :-)

19th Jul 2007 - After undergoing a bit of an overhaul (upstairs is now full-on restaurant rather than just gastro) the Crown is a fun place to be at the moment. The staff are very friendly and the space has a lovely feel about it. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

5th Jul 2007 - Took me a couple of visits to get over the fact they've stopped serving fish finger sandwiches but it's a great pub. Lunchtime food is good, reasonably priced drinks, big outside/seating area on the 'green' (it's more of an expanse of flagstones and road) and chirpy barstaff. Their chocolate cup thing for pudding is weird though - avoid that unless you like eating a bowl of runny cold chocolate.

30th Jun 2007 - This pub gets better and better. Plenty of beers on tap, and plenty more in bottles. If they haven't got one you want, simply write it on the blackboard and they attempt to get it in stock. Food is above average for a pub and service is fast and friendly.
