Proper British Pub in Seoul: The Rose and Crown Ale House

The Rose and Crown Restaurant in Itaewon is a British establishment that serves good food and has numerous options for cocktails and drinks.

The Restaurant

I went to this restaurant a few times. Each of the times I went, I left satisfied and ready for a night out. Not only do they serve food that will satisfy your western cravings, but they also have many cocktails available on their menu. Plus, the service is very fast which is always a huge pro for me.

The restaurant itself could be considered a pub. Taking into account the number of customers, I would say it is a pretty popular place. I heard lots of British accents, so it seems to be popular with expats from the UK. I don’t have much experience eating British food, but based on the reactions of people around me, it appears to be an authentic restaurant.

Inside you can find many tables and a nice atmosphere for relaxing after a stressful week of work. I absolutely love the contrast between the dark British theme and the flower wall inside. The lights also play along with the idea.

My Experience
