Crown Tavern Hideaway snugs where Stalin and Lenin held secret meetings and real ales make the Crown Tavern a popular local on Clerkenwell Green. Delving back further into the history books, this is where Oliver Twist learnt to pickpocket in the classic Dickens' tale. But it's more than a musty old pub. Updated in 2016 with a new look and upstairs bar, t he beautiful, dimly lit pub has been refreshed with a menu of smoked salmon open sandwiches, salt beef Reuben with sauerkraut and hot cheddar, and beef pie in the evenings. On Sundays, roasts are served with all the trimmings. Hold a private party, for up to 30 people, in The Clock room and you'll be in the exact spot where Stalin and Lenin met in 1905 under the Conspirator Clock. For larger groups of up to 80, hire out the upstairs Apollo Lounge.
