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.

Really like the burgers and presentation when served. The...more
In the past I haven't particularly been a fan of this pub. Others in the area were cheaper so I ventured a little further away from home to keep my purse happy. Now that prices have increased seemingly everywhere except here and pubs are starting, for some inexplicable reason, to serve their ales in dimple mugs, I've given up hope of finding a better pub than The Crown, at least in its...more
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 :)
However finally got around to going to the Crown. We had already eaten so just popped in for some pudding and maybe a cheeky beverage. I really like the traditional and cosy atmosphere here, which really add to the experience of a...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
