Crown210 Chiswick High Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This imposing building fronted by Victorian railings was originally Chiswick’s police station built in 1872. It was later used by the probation service, and has since, like other local public buildings, been converted into a bar and restaurant. The building still retains the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom over the porch entrance - Dieu et mon Droit. It laid vacant for a number of years after the former Carvosso's closed and re-opened in January 2019 with a new name, after extensive refurbishment by Harcourt Inns. It’s their fourth pub & dining rooms to be launched by them, and famed Chef Henry Harris.
Entering up a few steps though the large front door you reach the air conditioned spacious bar area. The modern décor is of light grey walls with monochrome prints reflecting Chiswick's historical heritage. If bar stools are not to your liking there’s a comfortable side lounge with large windows overlooking the High Road, although space there is limited. If you are not eating in the restaurant there is a selection of bar snacks available that are listed on a chalk board. During the summer months the internal courtyard space will be in use. The main dining area has floor-to-ceiling windows. The restaurant offers a seven-day a week, all-day menu, from morning breakfasts, onto casual or formal lunches and dinners. There are two private dining rooms also available to book.
