Welcome to Our New Neighbours Rose & Crown - Winning Pizza!

Welcome to Our New Neighbours Rose & Crown - Winning Pizza!

| by Editor | Posted in Balham News, Balham Food & Drink

Last night saw the launch of newly-refurbished pub, the Rose & Crown, on Tooting Bec Road between Balham and Tooting and they’re serving some of the best pizza around – and there’s a lot of places to eat pizza in Balham!

The team comprises of Chris – the general manager who is due to become a dad in May! Ben – the area manager, Peter and jo who are the masterminds behind the new pub, and of course the bar and kitchen staff without whom the whole thing wouldn’t work...

We remember the old pub being very much a locals pub with 3 bars and a pool table and Chris hopes that the new Rose & crown will be as inclusive as ever to satisfy the locals, sports teams after training on the nearby common, families and even dogs! (they do ask that children are off the premesis by 8pm) which was music to our ears.

There’s a great range of beers including By The Horns, Brixton, Mondo, Rocky Head, Weird Beard, Beavertown, Camden Town, and Brew Dog to name a few and the pizzas – well, we tried the pizzas last night and they were superb. Their aim is to do one thing well (pizzas) and if last night was their standard then this is a definite winner in our book. We ordered a ‘Red’ Sorrano pizza and a ‘White’ portabello mushroom pizza and we could have had them all over again, they were delicious. Our one piece of feedback was that when you order you’re given a buzzer and when it goes off you go to collect your pizza from the hatch – which for us was around the other side of a very busy bar – we just about got back in one piece and we wouldn’t have been able to do this as a single parent with two children without either leaving the kids, or leaving our belongings.

Overall a spacious, clean, smart pub with good beer and great food. We recommend you try it out!

Secret Weapon? they have fresh donuts with Nutella!
