Rose + Crown: fresh beer delivered to your door within an hour

Lockdown alert! Enjoy instant beer and wine in NW5 and N7, as well as N19, N8 and N4

It’s hard to believe Torriano Avenue watering hole the Rose + Crown has been around nearly as long as we have in its current incarnation.

And it’s worth remembering that it was one of the area’s earliest adopters of serving beer solely from independent craft breweries. Which means, of course, there are no duds on tap here – and, better still, lots of local Hammerton and no ubiquitous Camden Hells.

But, like every boozer in the neighbourhood, the Rose + Crown has had its fair share of challenges this year.

The good news is it’s operating a takeout and delivery service right through lockdown, including one-litre growlers full of delicious, fresh beer or cider from its taps.


The line-up (see the blackboard for the full list, above) includes sumptuous pale ales and IPAs from Verdant, Siren, and Kernel. There’s also a face puckering Caribbean sour from Brick, an alternative breakfast option in Siren’s Cacao and Cherry breakfast stout, and a stunning lager from Leeds legends Northern Monk. There are cans and bottles too, as well as wine and prosecco, plus bar snacks.

And it couldn’t be simpler: the pub takes orders for local delivery and takeaway between 1pm-6pm on 0207 267 4305. If you choose delivery they promise to get your order to you WITHIN AN HOUR. Woop!

If you fancy a stroll and choose takeaway, you bag yourself a useful 15% DISCOUNT, which also includes cans and bottles in the fridge. (Do not show up without having rung your order through first.)

Scan the bar code on the above poster and it takes you straight to the home page of the website for both local delivery and click and collect.

So what are you waiting for? Inundate the boys with orders and show your support to one of NW5’s best independent boozers.

The Rose + Crown lockdown promise: call 0207 267 4305 or 07877 408 425, open from Wednesday – Sunday 1-6pm, deliveries to NW5 and N7 guaranteed within an hour of ordering, orders taken outside of operating hours will be delivered the following day.
