It would seem that the owners of the Crown have upped their game because the island bar mentioned in previous reviews now supports a range of premium draught products and five hand pumps. During a recent Saturday afternoon visit these hand pumps were drawing three real ales ( Sambrook’s Pumphouse Pale Ale, Clarkshaw’s Strange Brew No. 1 and Exmoor Ales Wild Cat) and two real ciders (Weston’s Old Rosie and Rosie’s pig). My visit was just after the kitchen had closed so I didn’t see anyone eating, but I did see burgers advertised with the cheapest being priced at £8. The kitchen opening times are midday until 15:00 and 17:00 until 21:00 seven days a week. The pub itself opens an hour early at 10:00 Monday to Saturday and closes at midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

The furniture was of differing colours and styles and I spotted a piano in the right rear corner. Also at the rear is the entrance to an attached hostel and an atrium that was advertised as being available for hire. There was some background music playing and the TV was airing muted rolling BBC News. I did not see any signs for live sports or music. Out the front is some seating that is fenced off from the adjacent Lavender Hill.

I found the service to be very polite and the other customers to be friendly enough. However, this isn’t the cosiest of pubs so if I was to return it would only be for a pint or two.

Nowadays this is a street corner stand alone pub, but once it would have been part of the continuous Victorian street scene. The interior hasn't fared much better to be honest, one main large room with a central island bar, the place feels totally stripped out and functional.
There is little of interest, it is too brightly lit, there are a few sad and lonely looking framed prints which struggle for attention amongst the pizza meal deal offers and happy hour announcements for cheap drinks. It was cheap anyway, the sole real ale, Ruddles Bitter (where do they get that from?) was just £2, this goes down to £1.50 at HH, and the routine keg offerings become £2.80.
Carpeted except for around and between the door and the bar, mixed seating including two pairs of green leather effect sofas, there is a partly separated section to the rear left. TVs were on showing the Palace v Cardiff game.
Perhaps this pub improves in the warmer months when the outdoor seating to the front becomes viable and more people are inclined to go out, but I'm afraid to say I found it rather dismal and depressing.

A big sign at the front of this pub made great play of the fact that real ale had returned. But the introduction of Ruddles Best is really not much to shout about, though clearly it’s an improvement over the other bog standard stuff that was on offer. I didn’t see a menu (not surprising as we were in there after 9.30 PM on a Tuesday) but a large blackboard offered large pizzas £6.95 a pop. The pub itself is nothing unusual, with a central island bar and some standard tables and chairs, as well as a few sofas, scattered around it. There were a few prints on the walls, but to be honest the decor was unexceptional.
On the whole I thought this pub was pretty average at best, not helped by the overly loud pop music (nothing I recognised so I suppose it must have been by some currently top selling artist). I can’t see myself wanting to pay a return visit.
