The place to experience London pub life

The Crown is the absolute bee's knees when it comes to experiencing a slice of traditional London pub culture. Tucked away in Hackney, this dinky, pint-sized pub oozes buckets of charm and lashings of good old-fashioned fun. Have a seat in the tiny beer garden or stay inside where you can enjoy the atmosphere whilst gazing at old black & white photographs that adorn the wall. 

Here, you can sip a delicious Guinness (named as top ten Guinness in London in GQ magazine, according to Ian Ryan, the man behind the famous shitlondonguinness Instagram account).  You’ll love the sense of community togetherness that envelopes the place thanks to the splendid staff, top-notch entertainment, and the cherished regulars and newcomers alike who form one big, happy family.

Don’t miss the Whacky Wednesday

If you are uncertain on which day to visit the pub, go for Wednesday and witness the bar staff busting out their signature dance moves behind the bar - it's simply infectious, and before you know it, you'll be on the tables, cutting a rug!
