Review on The Crown

Located in affluent Chiswick, The Crown is the fourth instalment from former Racine chef/patron Henry Harris together with Harcourt Inns. Occupying a smart Victorian building built in 1872 that was originally Chiswick police station, it still retains the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom, Dieu et Mon over the porch entrance.

Inside it has undergone a smart refurbishment in the style of its siblings, relax on a stool or leather sofa in the art decor bar, or head to the cosy space in one of the former jail cells. There's two dining rooms decorated with contemporary artworks selected by Liana Braune, and French doors lead onto a courtyard garden perfect for al fresco drinking and dining.

Henry has appointed Sicilian chef Daniele Zaffora to lead the kitchen and together they have created a crowd-pleasing Mediterranean menu, alongside bar snacks, charcuterie and freshly baked bread. Starters herald dishes in the shape of octopus salad served with Jersey Royals, celery and olive oil or calf's brain, black butter and capers. When it comes to main courses there's skate, sea kale, ratte potatoes and beurre blanc or grilled rabbit leg, Alsace bacon, French beans and mustard sauce. To finish enjoy crème caramel or Sicilian cannolo with creamed ricotta and pistachios.

To accompany the food there's a well thought out wine list, chilled keg beers, Timothy Taylors house ale, with guest ales from Thornbridge, Wadworth and Tiny Rebel together with zingy cocktails.
