Although this fusion of two Victorian pubs is certainly large, the Crown & Greyhound is also surprisingly cosy, split up as it is into various dark wood-panelled rooms with robust tables, carved wooden seating and nicotined ceilings.

Black and red tiles chequer the floor around the semi-circular bar, where a guest ale sits alongside London Pride, Sharp’s Doom Bar and Harveys Sussex Best to tempt the all-and-sundry collection of mums, nippers, builders, students and tourists who gather here.

At the rear, alongside a restaurant section with a nice conservatory, solid outdoor tables make light work of the substantial portions of food brought by the amiable staff (there’s also a Sunday carvery).

Two black-hooded barbecues await orders when summer brings hordes to a back garden in which an enormous, seen-it-all-before horse chestnut tree holds sway.

Love coming here in the winter for a Sunday Roast! Can't wait for it to reopen

This is a pub that works for both small groups (you can tuck away in one of the nooks'n'crannies with one or two pals) or larger groups for birthdays (by taking over a larger corner of the split level pub).

There are some outside seats that get great sun in summer months and drinks here are served properly, which is important to snobs like me.


This place has really gone downhill. The food is absolutely dreadful, the beer remains ok but the place is a fraction as good as it could be and the food is badly letting it down. Please improve guys!
