Excellent! We had a large party of over 30 people celebrating a Christening/1st Birthday. Staff were excellent and we had a great time. It was also Father's Day but the service was still great no one had to wait for their meals vjacquaye visited The Crown Tavern on 18 Jun 2017

Just had my 50th birthday here and we had a fabulous night. Jason the manager was extremely helpful and made the whole experience easy and stress free.

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 23 Apr 2017

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 08 Apr 2017

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 01 Apr 2017

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. visited The Crown Tavern on 31 Mar 2017

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! visited The Crown Tavern on 01 Feb 2017

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 08 Jan 2017

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 31 Dec 2016

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 31 Dec 2016

We had a really lovely time on Christmas Day. The food was fantastic and all the staff were happy and festively attired.

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. visited The Crown Tavern on 26 Dec 2016

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 25 Dec 2016

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.

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.

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.
