Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The barman is so rude. Not sure if he thinks he is funny or he was being serious. Asked for a drink and was told no, he then proceeded to wash out some water jugs, that no one had asked for and potter about behind...the bar doing nothing just trying to look busy. He then made our drinks, and put the card reader in front of us not saying a word. Honestly his people skills are crap and we left shortly after feeling so offended. wont be going backMore

Been here once before. Was mediocre then.Nothing has changed. No atmosphere,needs a massive refurb. Miserable bar staff. What are they? A pub? A Chinese restaurant? An Indian restaurant? A sheisha bar? A sports bar? They need to sort out their identity. The place looks like...the drinks should be cheap ,but they're not. All you have to do is smile and greet your customers,if you don't want to be in the service industry ...get out!More

I recommend to my friends and booked a table, we had not been told a set time limit for sittings, but then was asked when we would be leaving! We were out for after work food and drinks so had no idea how long we’d...be but said, maybe 8pm (sat down at 4.30pm) We had a lovely meal and spent a lot on drinks and food we were ready to continue when we were told they wanted our table even though there were many tables available in the place! It was done in an abrupt manner and we decided to leave, such a shame a some of my friends hadn’t been before and loved the food . But now have a negative memory, So if you go check your length of booking I can’t fault the food though absolutely yummy and reasonably pricedMore

I love the Crown and Pepper! It's an Indian pub where you can get a meal or just a drink. There are LOADS of screens showing sports. It's a really lovely pub, great with mates. The food is delicious!

Fantastic hospitality and amazing food. The starters were so flavoursome and moorish. I highly rate the mutton rolls and salt pepper prawns. Staff were so accommodating, friendly and our experience at Crown and Pepper Croydon was the best in a long time. Thank you Jaimin...and Raj.More

Great meal as always. Curries were fantastic and salt and pepper squid and baby corn were 10/10. Great service too. One of the best places to eat in Croydon.

I brought a business network to the pub. They have a great room with a bar in it. Perfect for a group and we had 45 for lunch. Food was lovely but the space for a big group was excellent. Nothing like it in Croydon...so a great option. We will be back soon! Thanks for looking after us so well.More

Food is a hit and miss! Some dishes are good, some not so good. The service is horrible and won't be going back. I also ordered popadoms with my order which was not correct and I was unhappy. They asked me to come back of...which I was unable to do at the time. They then said I could come back for a refund for that at any point. Which I did.. after waiting 10 mins outside in the rain, eventually, I was was given my refund in change which seemed petty. Very masogonistic atmosphere and managers which is my order was a take away. The men who are the owners and the customers inside are very rude and pervy on women which is very uncomfortable. Would not recommend based on crowd, management and service.More
