Komakino . left this review about The Crown

A "locally" pub of the main road through Benson and under GK's auspices. Horseshoe-shaped bar with pool table in an alcove to the left and dining hidden away via a couple of steps to the right. Three GK variants available - IPA, Abbot Ale and London Glory (didn't bother and a Kronenbourg for £4.10 was about right - South Oxfordshire verges on London prices). Bare-boarded throughout apart from the dining area, a TV showed BBC News on mute to the left-hand wall above a fireplace, accompanied by a fruit machine to its right and dartboard to its left above a pile of hewn logs. The bar itself had dark red studded leather cushioning against its front panels. Some sporting paraphernalia in the pool room to the left including a signed Reading shirt, a photo of Muhammad Ali and more than one photo of the iconic Bobby Moore-on-shoulders-holding-the-Jules-Rimet. It felt like things were going to kick off in any minute, so I didn't hang about for long.
