A street corner pub backing onto a park,the interior has been stripped out and there is much exposed brickwork.There are large mirrors and equally large picture windows giving the interior a bright feel.The furniture is traditional wooden,on the right side there is some wall cladding and a seperate ,open kitchen.
There is a long bar with hanging filament lights above and the focus here is on beer in all it's forms.
Not all 10 handpumps are used,two were given over to real cider,while the regular ales appear to be Oakham Citra and Siren Yulu (A little musty,NBSS 2.5,£4.70).There will normally be three additional real ale guest,on my trip something had run out leaving Turning Point No Post on Sunday and London Beer Co. Beer Street.Disappointingly all four choices were modest ABV pale ales so lacking a mix of styles.
There are also 10 keg taps and the choice seemed better thoughout,with beers from Brixton,Siren,Mondo,Redemption , a strong stout from Big Hug and two Steigl lagers.A beer table menu also list cans and bottles for sale,while I didn't inspect the food menu but the punters all seemed to be just drinking on my Friday afternoon visit.
There are a lot of exterior seating to the quiet side of the pub with pleasant views over the park.
At least an effort to stock real ales has been made here,a more varied selection would have earned a higher rating and may have demanded a return visit.The welcome was friendly and this is a decent,modernised pub just a little short of outstanding.

A Gastro/Craft bar with an interesting range of Cask beers available on seven of the handpumps ,the remainder given over to Cider and or perry. Its not the kind of place I would have liked five or six years ago but I am warming the like nowadays, since Craft Beer has become popular I feel it has improved the real ale scene as well and while still preferring a traditional type establishment I would have no problem returning here.I didn't note all the beers but all were not what you would find in most other pubs in general and my pint of Hewitts D'arf Wit, a dark wheat beer at 4.6% was very good.

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

Attractive gastro-pub with bare brick walls and a sensible arrangement of functional wooden furniture. Daily menu with suggested beer choices to match the food. Very good selection from ten handpumps, with beers including Shamblemoose #4 American Brown (£3.70) and three ciders. Leading quite a dull area upmarket, so worth seeking out.
