Restaurant description

A charming haven just a stone’s throw from Oxford Street, The Crown & Sceptre London serves refined British food and timeless pub favourites. Adding modern gastropub touches to a classic London pub feel, comfy sofas, exposed brick walls and dark wooden flooring create a relaxed environment befitting of the upmarket location.

Ticking all the boxes for classic pub dishes, The Crown & Sceptre Fitzrovia menu is a hearty affair. Brought to life by quality ingredients, favourites include the 28-day aged British rib-eye steak, the West Country beef burger, and fish and chips with cider and tarragon batter. Mediterranean flavours also make an appearance in the likes of roast winter vegetable and caramelised onion tart, with olive pastry and a blue cheese sauce.

Equal attention is paid to the drinks menu at The Crown & Sceptre pub, with a host of cask and bottled beers from both local and international brewers. In warmer weather, the street terrace is perfect for people-watching with a glass of wine.

In the heart of Fitzrovia, The Crown & Sceptre is an 8-minute walk from both Goodge Street and Oxford Circus tube stations.

    Miserable guy behind the bar who didn’t really seem to look like he wanted to work that day. There was only pork left by the time we ordered, no one let us know before we sat down. Waiters hurried off when they put the food down and didn’t ask us if we needed condements. Food was good though and nice selection of beers and mulled wine.

    Everyone enjoyed their food. My dish of mushrooms on toast was lovely. We visited on Thursday before the Bank Holiday weekend so I think it may have been quieter than usual as it wasn't at all crowded and we had a very relaxed lunch.

    Lively pub, friendly service, nice food. Good atmosphere but quite noisy if you want to have deep conversation.

    This is more a pub with decent grub rather than a restaurant so the table layout is spread out with a choice of seating more suited to drinkers than diners. However, if you don't mind sitting on a chair which may be a bit low, the ambiance is convivial and the staff extremely friendly and professional. The menu is not particularly adventurous, with many tried and tested favourites like fish and chips and steak sandwich, but not bad value and well cooked. Probably one of the most attractive features of the pub is its location - just behind Oxford Street and a short walk from the Underground but far enough away from the throng of shoppers to be a relaxing venue for a drink and bite to eat.

    Wholesome a tasty Sunday Roast lunch although the quality for the price did not match previous venues offering similar both on price & quality. Plus, wine was very expensive by the glass, better bought by the bottle. Location ideal for occasion and being close to the BBC worked well. Couldn't fault service in any way given the style of venue
