This Shoreditch High Street boozer opened its doors back in 2013, following 12 years of being boarded up and looking nothing short of a sorry old state. It's an old, old pub – the 'shuttle' in its name refers to part of the weaving kit used by local Huguenots.
Today, it's got all the east London hallmarks: plasterwork stripped-back, distressed woods, low-hanging lighting, that kind of thing. Two Meantime tanks next to the bar do look pretty cool though, dispensing ‘brewery fresh’ London lager, which is unpasteurised, unfiltered, delivered by petrol-style tankers and matured on the premises. Hackney Brewery, Fuller's Brewdog and Five Points are also on the pumps, with many more by the bottle.
The food menu is limited to burgers, hot dogs and a 'fish fry' dinner of cajun cod, potato salad, buttermilk and dill dressing, red cabbage pickle and a Louisiana remoulade.
Famed for its huge selection of craft beers, gins, cocktails and fizzes, there’s something for everyone at the Crown. Soakage is provided by the silver airstream in the garden, where the chefs are slinging epic burgers all day and evening. Weekday lunch deals are legendary, with lunch and a pint only setting you back £10. If you're looking for somewhere to have a long lunch, meet up with pals for post work pints, or are planning a boozy evening of excess with a large group, they're more than happy to reserve you a space.
The Crown has a fantastic roster of regular events including a raucous weekly quiz, live music in the form of jazz on a Sunday and Stripper Life Drawing once a month. Known for bigger seasonal parties, the Crown and Shuttle is also the place to be for Thanksgiving, Paddy's Day, New Year's Eve and Christmas. The party atmosphere, bookable spaces and fantastic music makes the Crown the perfect place to start (and finish) your night out in East London. Oh, and there’s table football, natch.

I think this place is a fantastic wee find - the terrace out back is great and much bigger than you'd expect, it has a cute little food van out back too to save you coming back in. Good selection of drinks and a 'blast from the past' mini bar upstairs which is full of various things that'll take your memories back to childhood - and a mis-spent youth!
Big shout out to Meg and the team at The Crown and Shuttle , and all of the ladies from The East London Strippers Collective who shared their stories for Time Out Cardholders with honesty and humour.
I am a big fan of this pub , and am so pleased they celebrate their colourful history
Great pub with a massive sense of fun. Try the tiny upstairs bar "Filthy Fannys" - go out back to enjoy an al fresco bevvy and pop-up food truck - There's even a grotto and an urban upper deck. The beer's good - the vibe is great. Love the place !
great place to come for a sunny day or night time tipple, plenty of choice with a fantastic beer garden to drink the night away. the food go's down well and theres always cracking music playing.
Passed the crown a few times on my way to Liverpool St. Station, finally headed there after work friday. The burger was pretty tasty. The staff were friendly folk and beer garden is a lovely bonus!
Went there on a Saturday night. House red was ok burger - awful. Semi warm meat and a cold rubbish bun. Rip off for the price I paid. Would not recommend. Full of trendy wannabes - overcrowded and not up to much
Iv'e only seen pictures of this place but I wouldn't really want to go in there... If anyone cares about my opinion.
