Visited as part of the Peaky Blinders Tour, the Crown is a proper olde worlde pub , full of quirky charm and interesting little nik naks.. Beautiful original tiling in the bathrooms, which have to be seen. Good quality food and great service made for a lovely evening.

Its a lovely pub, with nice character and nice staff. Breakfast was delicious as well, but the big down sides are the noise, which is not helped by what seem like paper thin walls, and the lack of private bathrooms, which wasn't too much of a problem, but not ideal!

Hi Callum, Thanks for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the food and sorry about the noise. Due to the nature of the building we are restricted to the changes that we can make but are trying to reduce noise from the road in the bedrooms. We hope you want to come back and look forward to welcoming you back... More

Went here for the first time last week and will definitely be going back. Really welcoming, friendly pub. Staff were really helpful. Food was delicious. The sort of place you could just walk into off the street and feel at home.

Our first and last visit here. On the menu it is not mentioned that there is cheese on the burger, this was not mentioned to everyone at the time of order when everyone ordered separately. When the food arrived there was cheese on the burger, one of the group cannot eat cheese. When asked to change this the staff were... More

Beautiful old (oldest) pub. Such a comfy nice feeling to it, nice beer garden, attentive staff. Well worth the slight walk from the town centre. One of my favourite pubs in the area. Looking forward to trying to the food at some point!

Good basic pub with real food and real people, not many left anymore. Food was great, we had a burger each which doesn't sound very exotic but it was one of the best in a pub I've had. Staff were friendly and helpful. A bit grubby around the edges but an old pub after all. We went to the O2... More

We visited the pub to take the "Peaky Blinders" tour with Prof Carl Chinn. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful. The cost of our two drinks rounds before and during the tour were a great price considering we where in the city. We did not eat before hand as we had food as part of the tour. The pub... More

Came here for a spot of lunch before a gig. Ordered Welsh rarebit which was great. Ordered a bottle of prosecco and the glasses were all chipped, I complained and it seemed a mission to find 3 glasses that weren't chipped, all the chipped glasses were placed back. BUT apart from that the beer garden out the back was excellent.... More
