“Nice restaurant and pub”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I had my dinner in The Crown on 16 Oct. We ordered steak, beer, fish & chips and desert. The foods were quite good and the atmosphere was very warm. It is really a good place for a relax dinner in Oxford.

“Tucked away off the main pedestrian mall”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

OK, an odd place to have a pub, tucked at the back of 2 shop fronts (one being McDonalds) on on of Oxfords main shopping drags.
What i like about this pub is that there is a large outdoor and indoor area to stand or sit, unlike some pubs that have small space for their patrons.

The food here is really good and well priced.
The pub retains its charm from its original heritage and feels clean and welcoming.
Certainly worth you having a meal or drink after exploring Oxford.

“Decent enough pub.”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Good selection of Ales, the ones I tried seemed well kept. Quite pricey for both food and drinks, although the food was pretty good. Quite nice feel about the place, although slightly untidy in the courtyard area. Could do with a bit more wiping down the tables outside

“The stench of urine drove us away!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We popped into the Crown after thinking it looked good from the street. Unfortunately they are not great on hygiene... the stench from the loos was terrible and when I mentioned it to the bar staff on duty they just said that it was unfortunate and they did clean them but the day was almost over so...... Really put me off going there again if that's their attitude to cleanliness! You'd never know what the kitchens look like but if the loos are anything to go by.....
