The Old Crown
This New Oxford Street pub looks every bit the contemporary take on a traditional British boozer - think large leather chesterfields and exposed brickwork alongside gilded rococo mirrors, intricate chandeliers and wallpaper with a hint of the hunt about it. The food menu, though, is influenced by the USA. Burgers are a strong point, with options ranging from the 'OC' (a 6oz dexter beef patty with American cheese, gem lettuce, tomato, red onion, gherkins and burger sauce) to the 'Notorious P.I.G' (a pork and chorizo patty with pulled pork, chipotle mayo, rocket, tomato and coleslaw) and one paying homage to Russell Crowe - also known as the 'fat bastard', apparently. Expect hot dogs, wings, sliders and nachos, too. Beers range from San Miguel, Becks, Amstel, Blue Moon and guest ales on tap to Bud, Asahi, Peroni and Sol by the bottle. A short wine list takes in France, Italy, Spain and a few new world regions, with most of the bottles available by the glass. Classic cocktails sit alongside Old Crown specials such as a lemon and vanilla martini and their take on a twisted gimlet. There's a late license on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with DJs bringing the party vibe.
