The Crown & Sceptre Review
Located at the junction between Great Titchfield Street and Foley Street, the newly - refurbished Crown & Sceptre brings a welcome combination of Victorian opulence and contemporary kitsch to the heart of Fitzrovia.
The pub’s cast iron railings and giant outside lanterns are simply magnificent, while the Crown & Sceptre’s prominent position within an array of restaurants, cafes and delis lends it a relaxed European air. As such, it is a popular haunt for post-work locals and weary shoppers seeking an escape from nearby Oxford Street. Now under new management, the pub boasts a selection of continental beers and lagers, an extensive wine list and a sumptuous daily food menu.
The high-ceilinged interior – complete with two magnificent pillars - is dominated by the central bar area, decked in sparkling fairy lights. In keeping with the traditional design of the pub, the furniture is a mixture of dark wood tables and chairs set against rich green walls. 1970s-style orange bubble lights, retro chandeliers, funky spotlights and candles bring to life the pub’s wonderful features, including the ornate, engraved ceiling design. Large windows at the front of the Crown & Sceptre create a bright and airy space, while the array of window seating is perfect for a spot of people-watching.
Towards the back of the pub – on the right-hand side – is a ‘lounge’ area resplendent with dark panelled walls, comfy upholstered chairs and luxury leather sofas to sink into. Retro wooden dressers and standard lamps, as well as an impressive fire-place, enhance the lounge vibe and this cosy space is great for quiet conversation or a romantic rendezvous.
The bar serves a wide selection of speciality beers and cask ales, including Belgian favourites such as Leffe and Hoegaarden, as well as new and old world wines. The food menu offers a variety of light snacks such as Wedges with Sautéed Mushroom and Stilton and Spicy Prawns with Sweet Chilli Dip, plus more substantial dishes such as Corn Fed Chicken Breast with Leek and Maple, New Pots, Green Beans and Mange Tout, and Gnocchi with Spinach, Mushroom and Tomato Sauce. Traditional Sunday Roasts are also served every weekend.
The Crown & Sceptre is open from 12pm to 11pm Monday to Saturday and midday to 10.30pm on Sundays. Food is served from midday to 3pm and 5pm to 10pm weekdays and from midday to 10pm on Saturdays and midday to 9.30pm on Sundays....read more

“A very pleasant pub, good selection of beers (mostly expensive lagers), and tasty looking food. A buzzy media crowd on the night I visited. If you can be bothered to stray 5 minutes off Oxford Street (and you should), this is a watering hole worth knowing.”
