recently upgraded it’s menu we went along to the relatively new joint on Shoreditch High Street, The Crown and Shuttle to see their Burger HQ and take a nosey at ‘best pub garden in East London’. You may have noticed a change in the weather which forced us indoors, but the old school proper pub decor is nothing to be sniffed at.

The menu offers up a good range of grub with a surprisingly unexpected angle for a boozer such as this. Starters will have you drooling with the sticky  Jimmy’s Farm pork ribs, chicken wings, falafel and hummus, ooh get them and even Tabbouleh – hang on are we in a Shoreditch boozer? It’s the mains that will have you dazed…homemade wheat beer and poppy seed flat bread wraps…well slap our wrists and call us Mary!

We sampled the falafel wrap which was packed full of salad and sauce in a fresh wrap – all good but next time we’d like to see just one more falafel in there please. The free range Devonshire beef burger, pale ale, truffle & porcini ketchup, Provolone picante cheese on sesame seed brioche was the highlight of the lot, along with the fries which come with a seasoning of your choice – Worcestershire and chili anyone?


Overall the food reasonably priced and decent too – plus the menu is great for those times the wifey wants to go for mezze and hubby wants a burger.  It’s worth a trip or two alright and better still if you are looking for a lively place to sink a few ales this is the joint. Take advantage of the ‘beer flights’ and try what’s on tap that day.
