Blackthorn _ left this review about The Crown

An attractive looking pub located adjacent to the historic St Nicholas Market, this has recently re-opened after a spell of closure and has apparently had something of a refurbishment as well according to reports in the local press. If that’s the case I didn’t really notice anything significantly different from the last time I was here, other than perhaps a lick of paint. It’s still very much a no frills boozer, and I can imagine that the odd tourist popping in on spec might be a little disappointed.

Internally it’s a reasonable size on several levels with the largest room being up a few steps at the rear. At the front are two smaller rooms with a couple more steps between them. Décor wise it’s broadly similar throughout, with black wooden boards on the floor that have been worn smooth over the years, some painted wood panelling on the lower part of the walls and wallpaper that has been painted a deep red colour, both on the upper par of the walls and the ceiling. It seems to have something of a goth theme to it, with several skulls dotted around, and a neon sign at the back of the rear room said Welcome to the Jungle. The significance of this escaped me, although the plastic foliage affixed to the walls, tree printed wallpaper and even a few stuffed parrots clinging to the wall did add something of a jungle ambience I suppose.

Beers on tap were Dartmoor Jail Ale, Tribute and Proper Job, whilst a fourth pump appeared unused. Ciders meanwhile were Thatcher’s Haze and Bounders. Bar staff seemed a little disinterested, with one of them quite blatantly ignoring me, even though he didn’t seem particularly busy doing anything else.

Located down a narrow street round the side of the Corn Exchange, a very Dickensian approach. An appealing exterior gives way to a surprisingly large interior with a number of old rooms over a number of levels. Traditional alehouse decor with black tar wood floor, flock embossed wallpaper, burgundy/cream colour scheme and muted lighting but as mentioned below, perhaps less cosy that you might have hoped for. Perhaps unfortunately the atmosphere was spoilt by the screens showing TV sport on mute whilst music plodded away in the background, alongside the thud and clink of the pool table. A good range at the bar, six pumps with five ales; St Austell Proper Job, Black Sheep Bitter, Arbor Blue Sky Drinking, Bath Gem and Bath Prophecy (fair). Friels, Skreach and Knights cider on pump plus 3 others chalked on a board. It's a decent stop overall and does enough to warrant a visit if you’re in the area. 6.5

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

Somewhat hidden down an alleyway in the market area of the city, this slightly tatty pub is a bit more interesting than you might initially think. The 'L'-shaped bar is up a few steps and bigger than it first appears, with two pool tables in another room beyond and the Club Cavern music venue underneath. The rock jukebox also appears to be an important attraction. It wasn't obvious at first, but thankfully there are three handpumps on the bar offering two 'house' beers from the Felinfoel Brewery - Crown'n'Glory and Liquid Metal (excellent value at £1.99) - plus a cider.
