Covent Garden / Soho, London –
Situated on a bustling corner in Covent Garden opposite the landmark Seven Dials sundial pillar, The Crown is the epitome of a traditional English pub.
Wooden tables, heavy drapes, and a couple of gambling machines highlight the no-frills décor that pervades this simple drinking den, which caters to a diverse set of young professionals and a whole mess of tourists thanks to its prominent location.
The pub’s focus is squarely on serving an impressive selection of beers and a handful of wines from the center bar, where sightseers often settle in alongside the after-work crowd for some suds and people-watching.
The venue really comes alive during football matches and on sunny afternoons, when Tottenham Hotspur fans and local urbanites gather on the street to talk sports over a pint or two of cider and soak up some of London’s renowned outdoor pub scene.
Surrounded by boutiques, coffee shops, international eateries, and a cupcakery, The Crown is an ideal spot for ending the day or breaking up an afternoon of wandering in Covent Garden.
Diverse mix of local young professionals, shoppers, tourists, beer-lovers, and theatergoers, 20s to 40s.
Jukebox with pop and rock classics. Two slot machines and a quiz machine. TV. Free Wi-Fi.
Free crisps and nuts.
Beer £3.50–£4, wine £4–£6, cocktails £4+.
Thursday evenings for after-work drinks or any sunny weekend afternoon for a bustling street scene.
For a day of pub crawling The Rock and Sole Plaice (45-47 Endell Street) and Crown & Anchor (22 Neal Street) make for great stops on a boozy afternoon.
