Malden man left this review about Crown Tavern

A pleasant corner pub with a boarded L-shaped main room with a corner bar, there is also a smaller side room which has lots of stuff in frames of interest. There is a nice bar back and corner gantry with a feature clock. There are a few etched glass screens, fairly regular seating as well as a drinking shelf. There is also seating al fresco on Clerkenwell Green. Small vases of flowers on the tables are a softening touch while a few games on a side piece of furniture suggest that punters settle in for a period rather than grab one and go.
Five handpumps, Landlord, Doom Bar but also Portabello Bronze Star (£4.45) about par for the area. One reversed (an Inveramond brew) with the other not clipped.
Upstairs are The Apollo Rooms, noted elsewhere as being function rooms however I'm sure I spotted a sign offering accommodation. Quite a nice spot with a decent if a bit expensive pint.

Prior to the other night, I hadn't been in here for about 7 years; this place is heaving on a Friday evening with office workers pouring out onto Clerkenwell Green. Not so on a Sunday night when we found the place almost empty.

It now though seems less trendy than before, furniture is eclectic and in most respects it's a fairly conventional sort of contemporary pub. My pint of Southwold's Herbalist was very decent and so it should be at £4.35 a pint. I'd come again, not least because virtually every other pub is closed on a Sunday, and many are even closed on a Saturday!

Rather trendy almost cosmopolitan food & drink house with the comfort of a large tabled pavement on Clerkenwell Green. Just far enough away from crowds to feel relaxed. Inside has big sofas and a back area.

5 beers of ok quality, its an all round good effort, just needs more staff.
