The Crown in London's East End is one of the Geronimo Inn's successful chain of gastro pubs. Decorated in calming, neutral colours with wooden floors and deep, embracing sofas the Crown offers a relaxed dining experience. But the jewel in the Crown has to be the menu, which changes regularly and uses seasonal ingredients. A meal here might typically include dishes such as a ham hock terrine with marinated beetroot, jellied eels with mash and parsley sauce and a zingy lemon tart with Chantilly cream. Three courses here will cost an average of £30 per person.

Been wanting to check this place out for a while now, but trying to go there during Christmas on a sunday without a reservation didnt work for me, who knew :)

I am so glad this is my neighborhood bar and only just around the corner from me. It's in an old building and has been redone so well. It has a really nice homey yet really classy feel. The drinks are really reasonably priced for how lovely it is, the food is a bit on the pricey side but it is delicious! Try the salmon and champagne scotch egg with mango coleslaw. Sounds weird, but the more...more
I feel bad for giving it two stars, but really - 'Meh. I've experienced better' really sums it all up.
Aside from the ultra friendly barmaid- who was lovely- the whole place was just generic and dull. There's a little big of outside terrace seating, but staring at a roudabout is not amazingly relaxing.
Drinks, expensive and the selection behind the bar was naff.
It's ok, good...more
My initial reaction to this pub was horror as we walked in and all we could see was a sea of children on low tables, basically like a giant fancy creche. A woman in the middle of the main route through to the bar doing something with a child completely ignored the fact we were waiting to get through which meant I had more time to check out all the yuppie families, dogs and breast feeding that...more
