The Restaurant

The 3 Crowns restaurant is drawing a new map around Old Street and has turned a former street-corner pub into an honest open-kitchen restaurant updating traditional British and European dishes.

In a discreet dining room, refuge from the hubbub of the busy bar, head chef Lee Urch cooks food with recognition of the season and the provenance of the ingredients, serving fish, fowl and flesh married to accompaniments that savour taste, texture and colour.

Enjoy lunch and dinner in an understated, wood-pannelled restaurant heightened by eye-catching wall art. If you are looking for real food, cooked simply, seasoned intelligently, joined by a diverse drinks list in comfortable surroundings, then you have just found it.

The Pub

The 3 Crowns public house has made a virtue out of veniality, retaining an authentic, old-school bibber's familiarity while dispensing an evolving selection of drinks the envy of any metropolitan bar.

Local, hand-pumped real ales, craft beers, high quality spirits and an extensive list of wines are served assuredly in a bright and lively space with an easy view onto the busy street corner outside. Take breakfast at roadside, lunch at a window seat, dine in the adroit restaurant behind the curtain. And with creative bar-snacks made in the kitchen, and modern and traditional cocktails, fizzes and spritzes, the bar and its clientele are a reflection of the city itself - eclectic, resourceful, dynamic, upholding customs and embracing current cultures.
