    I've mentioned this place a few times, Crown, probably in this thread, an old favourite but no longer.
    Went to pot when big Steve left (a different one Mick!) with the new guy reducing beers in favour of, say, huge guinness fonts and suchlike, and reducing custom from vibrant locals to.. errm, no-one. Then it closed.
    Now reopened, but I now hear that the bouncer (need for which speaks volumes) was punched out by a young guy Sat before last, followed by girls kicking off, hair dragging across floor etc, and windows reported as put through come Sunday morning.
    I don't think I'll be paying a visit anytime soon, despite staying nearby later this month.

    I was there on Good Friday and it definitely had a bit of a rough edge in the bar, and the whole place was a bit of a mess. That said, the beer was surprisingly excellent.

    Went to The Pembury Tavern last night - a half of Five Points Best for £2.15 and very nice too.
