Reverted to The Three Crowns in April 2017 after spending a year as Hill & Szrok (a butchery-focussed pub). This has seen beers from the group's Essex Street brewery make a welcome appearance. At the end of 2009/early 2010 all the surrounding buildings had been knocked down, while the pub, which is locally listed, remained standing and was used as a site office for the adjacent redevelopment. In 2013 the pub re-opened. Comprehensive internal refurbishment into a modern venue has seen the space trebled in size which has allowed a dedicated dining area to be added with an open kitchen. Four hand-pumps, plus one for cider. Of note, the pub has had an exterior refurbishment which revealed an original bottle-green-tiled Barclay's Brewery (appears pre-Barclay Perkins) facade. An imaginative retention of what had become a tired pub. A Premier Inn is next door.
