New incarnation of the former reflex 80’s bar so this can only be seen as an improvement no matter how bad it is. Inside is quite comfy but thanks to its chain pub/sizzler branding and prices there is a fair few rough and ready drinkers gather here on a weekend and it gets really busy. On my mid-week afternoon visit it was quite and we got a nice seat but there is really nothing aesthetically pleasing inside and it is quite generic and bland in a sizzler chain sort of way.
I tried a taste of the Harvieston bitter and twisted but this was very clearly off and un drink able so I informed the young girl being the bar who had absolutely no idea what I was talking about and said that she had sold some today, I tried my hardest to simply explain what was wrong and that the beer needed to be taken off but after a while I learned that this message was never really going to sink in so just asked for a taste of the Rev James. Also GONE OFF and un drinkable!! Instead of go through the whole ordeal again I simply smiled and asked for a Guinness (£3.20) that was ok but nothing special. If this place could train their staff in customer service and cellar management there would be a reason to visit here as they do have so good (not great) guest beers sometimes available that would be worth trying g occasionally but as it stands I have no desire to visit here again for a while.

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

Modernised pub on two floors, reopened by M&B in 2014 as part of its Sizzling chain. Six handpumps, offering Doom Bar, Greene King IPA, Landlord, Rev James, Everard's Tiger and Ilkley Mary Jane (£2.46) when I visited. OK, but no distinguishing features.

When i first went in this pub it was called the Tavern in the Town,by the time i got round to photographing it the name had been shortened to the Tavern.
The pub is situated almost oposite the Theatre Royal on the busy upper parliament street.
The pub started to go downhill in the mid 90s when Bass brewery branded the pub as an Edwards,and it as now gone further downhill and is now only open in the evening to attract the upper parliament street crowd.

When this pub was called the Tavern it was a fairly smart single roomed pub that had fake beams and comfortable seating,the pub was a Bass tied house but i car'nt ever remember drinking any real ales here,the beer was Worthington bitter which was in keg form.
I only went in this pub on odd occasions but it was a lot better then than it is now.

Pub first visited 1980

Photo taken 1984

I have been in the Three Crowns on a couple of occasions recently and think it is now a decent pub to have drink and meal in.

Once inside there is a single square shaped room which is divided into different area by posts and small walls,the bar is on the right side,the seating is normal tables and chairs,the room is carpeted and looks quite smart.
There is an upstairs area which has its own bar but there are no real ales on this bar.
There are six real ales on the main bar,on my recent visit i had a drink of Everards Tiger bitter which went down very well and was quite cheap at £2.30 a pint,the other beers on the bar were Taylor Landlord,London Pride,Black Sheep bitter,Brains Reverand James,plus one i failed to note.
The pub always seems busy with both drinkers and diners.
This is a vast improvement on all other incarnations of this pub.
