Bucking Fastard left this review about The Crown

Good looking Victorian building opposite a gate leading to Victoria Park,this Youngs pub has had a hipster internal makeover.The entrance has a fine mosaic Crown Hotel inscribed on the floor,but the new layout has led to a modern wooden clad bar to the right,which is surrounded by bench seating with scattered cushions and more undressed wood making up the tables with more traditional wooden chairs.A large staircase leads to a first floor room with no doubt fine views over the park,but this was being used for a private function on my midweek visit.
Past the bar and a bookcase full of board games,the large space is full of mainly dining tables,some butcher block style other old wood and the doors here which would have opened into seperate rooms are largely non functional.Lighting is modern and the muzak was cool but uninspiring.
Three handpumps offering Youngs Ordinary and Special along with St Austell Proper Job (£5,good nick) which is a regular guest in Youngs houses these days.Keg selection was very mainstream and boring.Food is served throughout the day and my fishfinger sandwich was proper pieces of fish lightly battered,good granary bread, straw fries and salad which lived up to it's £9.50 price tag.
For the area this is a pricey pub and aimed squarely at the more affluent,better for a bite to eat rather than a major ale session.

Large pub with room off to the left and the bar opposite the door. Upstairs dining available. Three hand pumps of which Doombore was the strongest.

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

Imposing building located between one of the main entrances to Victoria Park and the Hertford Union Canal. Inside, it features a typical Geronimo Inns mix of furniture and decor in the semi-opened out bar and larger lounge. Signage indicates upstairs dining rooms too (not visited). Sharp's Coaster (£3.90) and Young's Special available from two of three handpumps (with an 'Ale be Back' notice in front of a Purity Mad Goose clip on the third).
