New year, new Old Crown. As the weather (hopefully) gets warmer and Spring makes its way in, we decided to freshen up our menu ready for the rest of 2019, and we can’t wait for you to try our new recipes we’ve been working hard on in the kitchen. Here’s what we’ve cooked up just for you…
An after work snack or a warm up to the other courses, we thought the start should be as good as the main event. Traditional pub flavours come from our warm pork (or veggie) sausage roll with crackling and relish or crispy garlic prawns and scampi, whilst our antipasti misto and chicken and bacon caesar salad offer something lighter. Think you can handle the heat? Why not try our Korean crispy chicken wings or a kilo of buttermilk chicken wings? Finally, our roast pumpkin bruschetta and chilli bean pot are completely vegan friendly.
Sourdough Stone Baked Pizza
We’ve revitalised our pizza menu offering a range of toppings for our wood fired, stone baked sourdough pizzas. Choose from classic margherita, Latin BBQ, Italian meat feast and our veggie options florentine with a baked egg, baked garlic mushroom and a garden pizza with seasonal vegetables. All our pizzas can be made vegan by adding vegan mozzarella and garlic oil.
We couldn’t forget the pub classics, those heart warming dishes for cold evenings that could only equate to a good quality pub. We’re talking proper fish and chips, bangers and mash, steak and ale pie and sirloin steak with all the trimmings. Of course we included a delicious vegan option of black bean, pumpkin and coconut curry too.
Burgers on Brioche
We’ve become well known in Digbeth for our hand crafted burgers, all served on a soft toasted brioche bun with fries. We’ve kept our OC burger with spiced Monterey jack cheese and salad for its classic and well loved flavour. It’s joined by the Tex Mexicana, a spicy double dipped chicken burger with guacamole. For those with a big appetite, the big pappa with double patty, salad and bacon or the surf and turf wars with crispy fried garlic prawns may hit the spot. The halloumi verde is perfect for veggies, whilst vegans can tuck into the crispy tofu burger with spiced shredded slaw and vegan cheese.
The Ultimate Sandwiches
Trust us when we say these sandwiches are a dinner time pursuit! Choose from three sizes of single, half or whole ciabatta. Beer soaked beef steak with wild mushrooms, crispy cod cheek with tartare sauce or grilled vegetables with beetroot houmous (vegan) are all on offer to dine alone or share with friends.
Food is served in The Old Crown from 12pm until 9pm Monday to Friday and 10pm on Saturday and 4pm Sunday. If you fancy breakfast or brunch, Cafe 1368 opens from 8am.
