About: The Crown Tavern is a Victorian pub whose interior still reflects this with its etched glass panes and decorative mirrors. It was once a music hall too but it lost its appeal and part of the building was sold off. Today, The Crown Tavern serves a variety of beers, wines and spirits as well as an assortment of traditional homecooked English dishes. Catering for private parties of up to 70 guests is available upon request and seating on the terrace and pavement is provided, weather permitting.

London's great literary pubs
Before WWII, The Crown in Clerkenwell was on one occasion a meeting point for two of Russia’s most famous political figures and theorists, Lenin and Stalin. We hope that they met here to discuss politics and ideology, but it was more likely that they came to drink.

Lovely traditional pub serving a good range of drinks (including good red wines). Staff were friendly even when we came en masse from a local training centre. You can sit outside in nice weather and enjoy a relatively quiet and green corner of Clerkenwell

Interesting bar, friendly staff but one or two are inclined to serve short measures (on three separate occasions).

i remember drinking in the crown in 1962 at that time it was being run by a doctor and his wife who seemed to look on it as a hobby he used to come into the public bar most nights and buy a round of drinks for the bar
