A great pub with character....a must visit place! Guinness was good, lots of little booths and a good crowd.

My boyfriend and I went to dinner in the restaurant upstairs and we're honestly disappointed. The meals were overpriced for the actual meal. My boyfriend got the 10oz ribeye steak and it definitely was not that. The downstairs saloon is amazing and a really cool pub, but I wouldn't recommend the food.

I had heard about The Crown and this was my first visit. It wasn't a disappointment. The décor is wonderful and I enjoyed the privacy of the booths. We had a meal in the restaurant upstairs and I can recommend the Irish Stew. The service was good and the price reasonable. If you are thinking of visiting, they don't customers... More

Everyone we met here was very friendly. We'd go again just to admire the stunning wood work; they don't make them like they used to.

What a wonderful authentic pub. It is truly breathtaking and very welcoming. We were lucky enough to get a cubby for a couple of hours and it really let your mind go back to different times. This place is really worth a stop and s drink. Didn't try the menu as already eaten but wish we had.

Very interesting old pub, with pleasant snugs. While draught Guinness was available, it seemed to lack many of my favourite ales.

Dreadfully slow, and the Guinness for which it is well known really isn't that great. I've been going here on and on off for years, and it's got slower than ever service wise. Nice enough otherwise; worth seeing, but not worth going to see!

This place lies in front of the historic europa and it offers nothing less than top quality pub craic. The Guinness is poured proper and the decor is fabulous. Also the food is tasty and there's even a dining room if you want a more sophisticated sit down meal. The champ is top notch! Certainly a must if in the... More
