Came to the Crystal Palace today for a wee drink, it's usually standard Witherspoon experience which is fine but today felt the need to write a review 5/4/17. The young girls and guy that were working were really lovely, however, female manager came in and totally changed the atmosphere! Shouting at them in front of customers, pulling them up for... More

The service was not good and the food was just ok. It's a cheap place and I get why people go there but the food was like it was microwaved. The lasagne was good but the chicken was terrible. All the tables were dirty and I had to ask them twice to come and clean ours. Will not go there... More

We were staying at the nearby Radisson Blu and fancied grabbing something to eat and watching Champions League Football so we wandered down to The Crystal Palace as we knew they had BT Sport. What can I say except it does exactly what it says on the tin, friendly staff, great beer and selection of real ales at great prices.... More

Had breakfast here this morning and we were very disappointed. We had eaten here around a year ago and been very impressed with the breakfast but today it did not live up to the previous experience.

Attended a small function here and met with the inevitable constant q to get drinks that seem to plague this pub chain. Bar staff were pleasant but far to often one was left on their own and others ignored the customers. At the end of the evening we were served a round of drinks and within 10 minutes our drinks...
