Tris C left this review about The Crown

A Grade II-listed pub with a CAMRA Regionally Important Historic Interior, this is very much a more upmarket pub catering for Barnsbury's wealthy locals. A Fuller's pub, so their ale is what you'd expect with guests such as Darkstar's Hophead. Food is a hotchpotch of items from around the world, from burgers to falafels.
What really sets this pub apart is the very fine 19th century interior with plenty of etched glass, an island bar which still displays its snob screens, polychromatic glazed wall tiles and superb plaster ceiling. Less obvious but attractive nonetheless, is the beautiful floor-inset brass William Newman & Sons 'Invincible' pneumatic automatic door closer, indicating that some partitions must have been removed at some point.
Without question this pub occupies the upper echelons of N1's best and is certainly worth a visit.

Fullers pub with ESB on draught. Nice pub but very quiet on Sunday evening. Would probably return if in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Crown

A reasonably large building, but the Fullers signage and paint scheme don't really make it stand out as a pub until you are reasonably close. Much more interesting is the interior, which retains an island bar part-separated by two glazed screens. The counter also has a gantry at one end, and there are also other features such as some tiling and engraved glass to catch the eye. The furniture is solid if basic, but complements the restrained yet upmarket decor quite well. There is also a small, comfortable lounge to the rear by the open kitchen. Eight wooden benches in the fenced side patio. Beer-wise, Pride, ESB and HSB (£3.80, and in very good form) from the two banks of four handpumps. Overall, worth seeking out if in the area.
