Terrible service, table not fully laid for our booking on Christmas Day, no knifes, spoons, serviettes, waited so long for someone to get our drinks order went to the bar and got ourselves, food not of good quality for the price, with the beef hardly got any food, no veg, 2 potatoes and a one piece of beef, and the man calling the orders to the kitchen was taking food off of plates and putting them on other plates with his hands, very unhygienic to say the least, also orders were wrong with food missing, and then to add insult to injury they insisted that we had to give a £66 service charge, for what!!! Was so bad that one of our party walked out when the main course was passed down the table. Disgusting rip off would never go again. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-12-25

Expensive - but it always is. Local to us, so ideal to wander up on Christmas day. Staff are a HUGE improvement over the initial lot when the pub first reopened and caused us to boycott the place for at least a year and a half. We are now very happy to return time and time again. Food is lovely, but staff are excellent, competant, organised, and friendly! I would not class us as difficult customers, but occasionally we will ask for something a little off menu, (particularly for our six year old daughter) and it is never to much of a problem for them to accommodate us.

This was the perfect place to be after the funeral for my Mother. It is 10 minutes from the crematorium. The room was light and spacious, there is plenty of parking and easy accesss for elderly guests. The staff were kind, respectful and helpful. The manager was over and above with his care of us. The food was delicious and great value, I was advised well regarding quantity, the few remaining sandwiches were wrapt for us to take away. I don’t live locally, if I did I would be a regular of thIs great pub. Thank you to all at The Crown for making a sad day a celebration of life. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-12-06

We booked the crown for a “celebration of life” buffet for our wonderful Grandad. The venue, staff, food and drink was wonderful. Everything was just as we had hoped and every request answered with a smile and “i’ll see what I can do”. Thank you for making a sad day so much more of a celebration. We’ll be back for happier occasions too! Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-11-23

Booked a table for seven and all of us enjoyed the food. Average prices compared to many other restaurants and pub food. We ate in the new section which needs to be made more cosy, maybe this could be achieved by installing a dimmable light switch. Staff were all very polite. We will 100% be going back.

We came for a Sunday roast for my Mum's birthday. The food all turned up hot and was tasty. However I feel it is a little expensive for what we got. The Yorkshires were massive but not many roast potatoes, gravy or veg. Also one of our roasts came with no potatoes at all! The vegetarian roast option was very tasty.

We were happy with everything -the service was xcellent-professional and friendly. The atmosphere was the right mixture of relaxed and comfortable .The 'meat eater of the two do us said the Sunday roast was good. The vegetarian option needs a lot of work (the stuffed pepper filling was puréed to the consistency of baby food and I I'm surprised that Youngs have no vegan menu-if more 'value' chains like Harvester and whetherspoons have them, this needs to looked at. We were going to book for Christmas lunch but may not for this reason. Shame though-everything else was spot on Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-09-17

Sunday Lunch for 5. 3 of us had the Roast, 1 Pork,1 Beef,1 Lamb all 3 were superb, 2 had the Burger which was also a big hit, all large enough without being too big. Those that had starters were more than happy and those that had deserts also were very pleased. With drinks, couple of beers, cokes and lemonade the meal came to £132 which I thought was a good price considering what we had. The only downside was that we were sat at a table which is in a fixed position with a bench type seat which is also in a fixed position, the only way to sit at it was to sit on the edge and slide along. This wasn't too bad for us but if you were on the large size or elderly it could be a problem. Also a couple of times I hit my knee on a rather large metal screw which was sticking out of the bottom of the table. When I came to pay for the meal, using cash, (meal £132, gave £135) i didn't get any change! I put this down to the fact that it seemed to be an abundance of waitresses which all served each others tables and maybe got confused as to who was giving the change and who was doing something else. But as I was going to leave a tip (more than the change I was expecting) I thought they could keep the change instead as to not embarrass them.(their loss). Overall I would definitely both recommend and return. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-09-10

Staff were really lovely. Great table in a well-lit, quiet area. Food was fine but we were a little disappointed with the lack of green vegetable options on the side dish menu, and also the vegetables we were given from the kids' menu were roasted courgettes and aubergines which were a little too adventurous for our 3 year old. A few simpler options such as peas, sweetcorn, beans etc. might have been more appropriate. The fish batter was excellent but the fish inside was a little dry. But these are minor points, generally we loved the place. Sausages and mash excellent. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-07-01

The staff were excellent, couldn't have faulted them. However, the eton mess dessert was extremely disappointing. £6.50 for 3 strawberries out of a tin, three tiny pieces of meringue, four tiny squirts of cream and a drizzle of strawberry sauce. Three of us ordered this and it left a bad taste in our mouths. Also one person asked if she could have cream instead of ice cream with her brownie and this was not possible despite there being cream in the other desserts. Sunday roasts were excellent but the disappointing desserts ruined it a bit. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-04-23

The dining space was great; spacious, peaceful and linking to an outside area which was a bonus as it was a hot day. All the wedding guests had a good choice from the menu and the waitress was very attentive. As the bride, I couldn't have wished for a better experience. The only negative comment was at the end of the evening we were moved to the bar area and were confronted with a very rowdy bunch of revellers, leaping about and disrupting our table. This caused a lot of friction and we quickly left. I think they should have been told to respect other people present. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-04-08

Thank you to all the staff of The Crown Tavern, but especially to the person who, all on her own, looked after us all for the entire afternoon. My 70th birthday was a roaring success. Some of my family traveled from Banbury, Oxford, Norfolk, Maidstone, Kent and of course good old lovely Lewisham. There was a good variety of food supplied, plenty of tea and coffee for those who were driving and as usual, the beer and wine was very good. The room was set out really well and every body there enjoyed the afternoon. We all had a very enjoyable time there and I would not hesitate to hold another function at the venue. Thank you once again, to all the staff who made my birthday very enjoyable. Mrs J Bowness. Lewisham, Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-04-01

Our first visit was dreadful. Service was atrocious and my food was cold. We did complain and were told that both meals and our drinks were free. We decided to come back on the Sunday for a roast and it was like entering a different place, plenty of staff, service was great and food was piping hot, our only criticism is the cost, most dishes seem very overpriced.

The Crown Tavern was the perfect venue to host my Family First Aid course on behalf of the charity Millie's Trust (www.milliestrust.com). The Function Room is bright and spacious with fantastic decor and a homely feel. The attendees all said how much they enjoyed the course, loved the venue, the food and the free parking! The staff are helpful, always serve with a smile and were great with the tiny babies who joined us on the course. I would highly recommend The Crown Tavern to everyone!

Mixed feelings. Ambience good, staff friendly and helpful despite being very rushed. Prices a bit steep especially the fish stew which only contained salmon and a few mussels. Cheeky bill clearly included service charge but under the amount due stated service not included and space to add for grand total. Would like to come again as close to home but not too sure.

If you're looking to celebrate a special occasion then I highly recommend the Crown Tavern. We hired the upstairs Francis Baring room for a buffet lunch for my son's Christening. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the room is lovely. I cannot rate Alana highly enough. She helped us prepare thoroughly for the day and ensured everything ran smoothly on the day itself; nothing was too much trouble. Alex also served us fantastically in our own private bar. Our guests all had an enjoyable time. Thank you very much. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2017-01-08

Had a good night, however when the waitress left after our main course was served the service was poor and I had to go to the bar to get any drinks which was a shame as I would have spent more money if there had been Waiter service. The disco was not really a disco and was poor. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-12-31

Good food, nice atmosphere, but felt that a little more effort could have been put into celebrating the New Year at midnight. The band didn't seem to realise when 12.00 was approaching - then at 5 past they couldn't pack up quick enough to get out!! However, the records after they went were good. Would have brought our own party poppers if we had known!! Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-12-31

We had a really lovely time on Christmas Day. The food was fantastic and all the staff were happy and festively attired. Our only disappointment was that we heard last year you had a snow machine in operation and that would have added an extra festive feel to the day. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-12-25

Visited the Crown on Boxing Day with family. There seemed to be a skeleton staff which impacted on service. Ordered drinks when we sat down which took about 15 minutes to arrive. The food was fine but the service was slow. The staff weren't particularly at attentive and we were needing to ask if we could have deserts etc. Only average and wouldn't be rushing back.

We were really looking forward to our Xmas day meal but it turned out to be really disappointing. We were a family party of 9 . We waited 40 minutes for our starter and then an hour for a lukewarm turkey meal and a further 10 minutes for a bowl of parsnips and roast potatoes and a few carrots , the sprouts didn't show up at all . The meal was extremely overpriced at £75 per head a total of £635.00 for what we got and then to be disappointed .... We were asked to pre order our food at least 2 weeks beforehand so no excuse really. The staff were apologetic and took 20 per cent off the bill and gave 1 free bottle of prosecco but frankly it didn't make up for the spoilt Xmas lunch . It was the 1st time ever we have eaten out on Xmas day and after this probably won't again and definitely not at the crown. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-12-25

Very pleased to enjoy what was a very tasty and relaxing lunch, with old friends, in the locality themed, well designed and furnished dining area at the rear of this landmark traditional Pub on the Lee/Grove Park borders. We ate amply sized portions of french/english styled cuisine, all well cooked and presented by the friendly and helpful staff. Good value as well! Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-12-21

I celebrated 10 years of cancer remission with over 100 people on Friday the 18th November. The support and advice from Alana leading up to and during the event was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The actual night ran so smoothly thanks to the warm, generous and professional assistance of François. I cannot express how lovely and hardworking our amazing bartender Marta was. She even quite happily indulged us 10 minutes before closing, by recording our attempt at a 'Mannequin Challenge!' Everyone commented on how lovely the function room was and the food was delicious! Alana spent ages with me beforehand planning when the various lots of food should be brought out and the wonderful staff stuck to it perfectly! I would thoroughly recommend The Crown for an event and I am looking forward to my next party there! I can't thank you all enough and you helped us raise £500 for the www.aclt.org.

There was no heating in the Function Room on Tuesday evening and it was a very cold night. Staff did their best to get things working, but both the wall heaters and the radiators were out of action. We all had to keep our coats on for the duration. In fact, the wall heaters would probably have drowned out the speaker at our meeting, so we really need to get those rads repaired. Urgent attention needed please! Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-11-08

I hired the upstairs function room for my 40th Birthday party Saturday night. The space is great and having your own bar, toilets and balcony area really does make this a great venue for a private party. The staff were also very helpful. A big thank you to Alana who helped with the initial planning and organising. Many friends have commented that it was a great party! Thanks again all. Nikki Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-10-29

We found the actual bar area and restaurant spacious and the staff friendly. However, the meal was disappointing as many of the items were off the menu (bearing in mind your menu is not extensive) and the chicken we chose was meagre with no vegetables (Potatoes etc.).

Another great Sunday lunch visit. We are locals and visit quite regularly, always a good choice, whether its just the two of us or a family gathering. Fab refurbishment too. Visited The Crown Tavern on 2016-09-11

Brilliant evening spent here celebrating a friends birthday. Fresh delicious food, great friendly service from all of the staff and a fab function room for a cheeky dance in the evening- just perfect.

We were very well received by the staff and the guide dog in particular was made very welcome. This cannot always be said of restaurants, and we were very pleased. The food and service were excellent and exceeded our expectations. Thank you for a lovely evening. Visited The Crown Tavern on 1970-01-01
