|Oh dear, Buster1955, someone had clearly rattled your cage on 17 Oct! About as inaccurate a review of a pub as I've ever read, bearing no discernible relation to reality. Best pub in Walthamstow, and for several miles around. A real community local, and much more besides.|

|Terrible place frequented by all the tree hugging McGuffins who run their specialised events there and campaign HQ for saving the derelict cinema up the road. Almost impossible to win the Quiz as they only let a fellow McGuffin win.|
Beer is generally OK except personally I do not rate the watery Brodies (sounds like a promotion for TV series Homeland) Too many lefty idiots with stupid looking glasses for my liking. Much better pubs around Hackney of which these are trying to emulate.

|After a brief stop at the ever-reliable Pembury Tavern in Hackney, I caught a train to Walthamstow to visit the Olde Rose & Crown. There's always one pub that catches me by surprise on any crawl I do and yesterday this was the one that easily surpassed my expectations. The pub has several CAMRA pub of the year awards for the East London area and I can see why. 6 ales were on - Kent Cobnut, Titanic Plum Porter, Hammerpot Red Hunter & Madgwick Gold, Summer Dream Elderflower Ale & Palmers Tally Ho. There were also 3 ciders - Thatchers Heritage, Millwhites Rum Cask and a new one for me - Pennypot Cider. The bar staff were friendly and professional. The interior is fairly large and it was reasonably busy with an obviously loyal clientele. Very impressed and I'm sure I'll be making a return visit. Easily the best pub in Walthamstow and I can't think of any better in East London, even the aforementioned Pembury.|

|i went in this pub before it was taken over by the current landlord.Its been a major transformation pulling in the punters most nights with the live music & a range of ever changing ales. all good!|
however what remains of the old days still needs to be rectified ie the toilets and the seat covers. My other comment would be someone to wipe the tables off on a regular basis.
All in all a nice pub i would happily recommend to anybody

|I was not impressed by the fact the staff had forgotten that we had booked a room for our function last Thursday 8/3/2012, so that when I enquired we were misdirected, and left waiting 30 mins before we found out where the function room was that we booked. In addition the room was cold and unfacilitated. On top of which the pub is proud of its Korean cooking yet was unable to offer any vegetarian options other than its £3.50 chips (at that rate I would expect to use them at the nearest casino). When I got served a pint, it tasted of detergent, so either the glass had not been rinsed or the pipes had not.|
