After a major three week refurbishment, which will seem a bit like ‘changing rooms’ when the doors open! The interior has undergone a stunning makeover. Wooden flooring throughout, lovely wall lamps, striking chandeliers, and a cool and stylish wallpaper and paintwork combination.
The toilets have been totally transformed (huge sighs of relief all round!) and the bar has been cleaned up, new fonts fitted and the back bar revamped. We will have five real ales on, with a focus on London beers; particularly products from Twickenham Brewery. The terrace has also been smartened up and new furniture installed.
The major job, however, has been fitting out a new kitchen. Out with the banks of microwaves and deep fat fryers, and in with a equipment capable of producing freshly made, seasonal dishes. The menu will be predominantly British, but with some interesting twists and influences.

Hmm, more gastro than pub having visited on Friday, rather like the Turk's. But then, that is where the profits are.debphailian on 2012-10-13 17:28:16 +0000
A notice in the window of the Crown says it won't open until early '13, due to 'a delay in getting planning permission'.Chris Squire on 2012-10-16 12:09:19 +0000
This place has been closed and refurbed and it's now DREADFUL. Most of the staff are horrible, sour faced and have extremely bad customer services. I've spoken to other people and they are put off by the price hikes and horrid new staff too. You will pay well over the odds in this pub now for crap food and the same drinks are double the price of other nearby pubs. We have been spending approx 50 quid a week at this pub, which was offensive enough for a few drinks. Over 20 quid for a bottle of vinegar wine, nearly 10 quid for a pint of my favourite lager. And we certainly wont be going back after the rude staff, the young skinny blonde is particularly rude. This place wont last 5 minutes now word is getting around. Sorry we wont put up with these extortionate and rude services in St Margarets - people use your feet to vote!Lesley on 2013-01-11 13:15:55 +0000
