I remember when the Crown first opened. Nice to see it's still around. The downstairs expansion was nice, but don't expect quick food service if you sit down there. Beers were quick. Would be nice if servers just once kept you posted on the status of your order. After we finished our drinks, a 30min wait with adjoining tables turning and being served, I had to flag our waiter down for an order update. While we love the Kings Cury (and it's always great), we know it's made in a big batch and just spooned out in minutes. We were starving and had other plans; please don't make us a number, just another "the kitchen's busy" excuse and waste our time.
great spot to stop by for a drink! they do have a back patio, but they keep the large tables for customers ordering food and may ask you to move if you're just enjoying cocktails back there
Came in for lunch around 1:20 today (valentines day) and our bartender was awesome c: just the right level of friendly while giving us space to chat on our own. He was engaging and funny when we chatted with him. Food was delicious. On his recommendation, I got the southwest chicken pasta. It was a great choice. My best friend got the guineas beef stew. It looked so nice she didn't want to eat it, haha. The fresh squeezed lemonade was delicious and just the right level of sweet. The ONLY downfall was they didn't have any creme brulee. He was kind enough to suggest another place called the moot house for it but honestly, after the awesome time we had at the crown pub, the moot house left me disappointed and pretty drained. Hopefully, next time I come I can try it at the crown instead.
One of my very favorite places in old town Fort Collins. Very good menu, very good beer selection, cocktails etc. English pub feel and the menu mirrors this to an extent. I go for the king's curry, extra spicy. Basement is nice and cozy, front and back patios.
Update August 14 2023. STILL outstanding! Chowing down on fish and chips. Pic attached. Met a friend at the Crown today for a cold brew and lunch. I had the double beer battered onion rings served with chipotle ranch and a garden salad. Both exceeded my expectations. The onion rings were incredibly light and crispy. Perfectly salted. The chipotle ranch dipping sauce had a nice level of heat. Very creative. The portion was huge and the cost was very reasonable at $8.95. My small garden salad was just as good, also a good value at $5.95. Served cold. Fresh and crunchy. My friend - vegan - ordered the Portobello mushroom marinated in fresh herbs and white balsamic vinegar but without the provolone or the brioche bun. It was tasty. $13.95. Service was friendly and outstanding. Our Guinness was served at the proper temperature which released its flavor. Guinness shouldn't be served ice cold, but rather somewhat under ice cold. Perfect. Overall, a great experience. I recommend the Crown if you want atmosphere and a traditional Old Town pub experience.
