About the Pub

Originally The Crown. Re-opened in October 2014 as an upmarket restaurant, after having been closed for around 10 years. A sympathetic refurbishment has been undertaken that preserves the superb original late-Victorian features. The room on the corner has been preserved as a bar for those choosing not to eat. An outside seating area is available at the front, decorated with pots containing mature olive trees. Cuisine is Lebanese, part of the Maroush chain. A bespoke service is also offered for off-site catering.

Real Ale was re-introduced for a few months in 2017, with a barrel on the bar with cooling-jacket. Sadly, poor demand led to its being taken out again.

Historic Interest

The Folly in the name refers to the false story that this venue was built in the late 1890s in expectation that The Grand Central Railway terminus would be built close by; and that Mr. Crocker committed suicide when this did not happen. In fact he died a natural early death and this is just an example of "fake news".
