Quinno _ left this review about The Crown

A Sam’s pub in three parts with an entrance at either end of the building. The bar is in the middle separated by two sets of panels, nice. Salmon and brown colour scheme throughout. Plumped for a Sovereign Bitter (a pretty dreadful drink, it turns out), served-up by an old skool landlord. No cask OBB here. Has a beer garden on the pavement at what’s best described as the rear entrance, which is relatively pleasant. Not one of their more notable pubs in central London but a decent stop nonetheless. 6.5

Sam Smith's pub that has a front and back entrance . It's Sam Smith's by the numbers no more no less.

Another SS's outlet with Sovereign bitter on keg at £1.58 a half, which oddly is 3p a half more than the Old Brewery on cask at The Angel around the corner.
There's lots of brown wood and a lino floor. Spirits are on optics which is nice to see, not least because it means staff can serve them faster than fannying about using spirit measures. Food is served upstairs.
Not a bad place but as always with SS's pubs, would be improved with real ale.
