As a vegetarian, is truly amazing to go down the pub and find out the vegetarian options are made equal on the menu, as meat and fish choices. My two course dinner was actually two mains dinner :D Pumpkin and barley salad and vegetarian meatballs...More

I visited the Crown on Saturday, the staff booked our group a table where we could watch the cycling on TV and service was great. Also thought the fish and chips were excellent. Thanks!

Nice pub for drinks with friends and good location. Don't really rate the food at all though. Quite expensive so I expected it to be good but it was just edible, nothing special at all. I had a really tiny and quite greasy spatchcock chicken...More

A light and airy jewel of a pub opposite the gates to Victoria Park, just a short stroll from London Fields. Whether it's catching up with pals over a pint or a bite to eat in our beautiful dining room, we've got it covered. You are spoilt for choice at The Crown with the pub spanning over two floors and a beautiful terrace overlooking Victoria Park. The Chefs offer a tasty selection of British seasonal, homemade dishes available from brunch to Sunday lunch. There’s so much choice at the bar from real ales, craft beers and spirits to a vast wine list. The Crown is a jewel in Bow not to be missed.
