Step inside The Crown & Two Chairmen

The Crown & Two Chairmen is a handsomely-restored old school gem at the centre of London’s buzzing Soho district.  Dating back to 1736 and previously known simply as The Crown, the pub as it currently stands was rebuilt in 1929.  A long-established Soho watering hole, The Crown & Two Chairmen has for centuries been a popular haunt of the area’s bohemian community and remains a favourite amongst local workers and creative types.  

With traditional wood-panelled interior, low-lit snug corners, period features and an upstairs bar area for private hire, The Crown & Two Chairmen attracts a diverse clientele, reflecting the off-beat, alternative vibe of the Soho area whilst holding the authenticity of a true British local at its heart.   

Sumptuous banquettes, beaded lampshades and period features means this seductive pub gives a nostalgic nod to a bye-gone era and offers an ideal spot to kick back, relax and watch the street life of Soho go by – high stools are provided by the windows for this very purpose, as well as several outside tables on the street corner.  Situated close to numerous transport links, it’s easy to find but perhaps a little harder to leave...
