The Crown Tavern, Lee

Look what the people of Lee have wangled themselves: A beautifully refurbished pub, with a lush garden. The team at The Crown Tavern proudly declare:

Dating back to 1887, The Crown Tavern has now been given a fresh lease of life whilst still retaining its original character, complete with a redesigned outside space and expansive dining room, serving seasonally changing British dishes.
Many of the popular pub’s traditional fixtures have been preserved whilst the new interior makes subtle references to travel, celebrating the pub’s historical links to the original railway line in Lee that ran behind the Tavern.  Design features include booths styled like train carriages with antique lighting and luggage racks, travel-stamp print upholstery and vintage railway signage and maps.
Head chef Tristan Downes oversees the bright and airy dining room complete with private terrace featuring a pergola and built-in log fire. Must-try mains include seared hake and scallops with a brown crab and potato cake, shrimp sauce and wilted kale; a duo of Devon lamb of pan seared rump and a slow roasted lamb shoulder shepherd’s pie with charred courgettes; and a tasty Yorkshire Fettle cheese tart with herbed Cornish potatoes and salad.
