About The Old Crown...
We aim to create a welcoming atmosphere while offering great drinks and memories into the late hours as we have been doing since 1852.
So whether it's good wi-fi to work during the day, a quiet drink to rest your legs after the museum, the classic after work drinks or somewhere to grab your favorite cocktail. We know we have got you covered!
WELCOME TO THE OLD CROWN, 33 NEW OXFORD ST.
The Old Crown is a unique building located on the corner of Museum Street and New Oxford Street. The pub dates back to 1851 years and has a character all of its own. Two of the three floors are open to the public at all times, while all 3 have a different vibe to each of them. We manage to offer a whimsical escape from the busy streets that surround and come once you come in you get the impression it has offered this for quite some time.
You can find reference to The Old Crown in Hogarth's famous Beer Street & Gin Lane from 1751. The spire of St George's church is just on the opposite side of the street - so it is fair to say we have some heritage when it comes to serving a libation or two.
GROUND FLOOR -MAIN BAR
As soon as you walk in you feel our atmosphere. From the organ's behind the bar to the chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. Opening the door's at 12 Tuesday to Saturday we bring the home away from home feeling to everyone who steps through under our roof.
The Snug has had a refurb!! Fresh out of lockdown it is now a state of the art Karaoke room filled with a catalogue of amazing songs and a disco feel like no other! It is open to the public and for private hire though we recommend booking in advance as it will be popular! Pricing is £12 per person, per hour!
Our top floor is a hidden gem in the midst of central London. It's a fun-times private hire space with karaoke, 2x flat screen TVs and private cocktail bar. When its not hired out we often switch up the menu to offer something different from the rest of the building as well as host weekly comedy nights.
Please contact our staff if you would like to find out more about private hires.
