Description: Set on a quiet Penzance back street, The Crown is one of Cornwall's hidden gems. You'll find no distracting screens, jukeboxes or slot machines - just friendly local people savouring the ambience and hospitality of this renowned establishment. The Crown is also home to Cornish Crown ales, a local real ale brewed by the landlord that has a loyal following with six regularly brewed variations. Three draft ales are always in tap at The Crown, and this will expand to six pumps of real ale. There are also weekly guest ales and we also have Prosecco on draft.

“Back again”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Popped back to The Crown on steak night, hadn't booked but we arrived early and managed to get a table. The food was delicious as ever, my normally slightly picky daughter ate everything, still fab beers, had a lovely glass of wine, service friendly and swift, do pop along! I couldn't manage a fabulous sounding pud, but my partner did and it was by all accounts delicious.

“Terrific food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

I remember this place when it was called the Victoria. The present owners have transformed the establishment.. The atmosphere was really great, the staff friendly and helpful. The Crown brew their own beer and according to my husband terrific, there is also a good range of wines. The food is home cooked at reasonable prices. A great place to visit.

Hi Jacs,

We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to The Crown! We are really glad that you found the place 'transformed' as we're constantly trying to find new and creative ways to better ourselves. Cornish Crown Ales is going from strength to strength and the more word we spread about it, the better. Maybe you might find it up your neck of the woods some day in the future? We would love to welcome you back when you are next in the area :)

Regards,
The Crown

“nice little pub in interesting corner of Penzance”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This pub is well supported by locals and visitors alike. It has a cosy feel - bistro type food at lunchtime. Limited menu chalked up on the board, but nice. Shame sandwiches are not included. The beer is their own brew and a very nice brew it is too.

Food is not served earlier in the week but there are curry evenings; steak nights; carvery lunches later in the week.

This pub is a little out of the ordinary. Plenty of character, standing on the corner of a nice residential Georgian square in an historic part of the town. Not far from the centre, this is one of the nicer town pubs.

Only one thing marks it down from being excellent - one or two of the tables are sticky due to the old surfaces, and there is nothing more annoying than the paper napkin and beer mats sticking to the table!
