It was built on the medieval Bristol Tolzey Court. This court had been a meeting place for Bristol's merchants and had jurisdiction over a wide range of cases involving damage claims or disputed debts. The Crown has occupied this site since 1741. Originally it was the vaulted cellars that formed the original trading area. These were initially known as The Trap, but subsequently became known as The Crown Tap Cellar
Since the closure of the Eclipse in July 2006 the Crown now rivals the Hatchet as an Alternative pub, which is popular with goths, punks, rockers, metalheads and emos.
There are regular alternative clubs in the old cellar (known as the Trap) of the Crown.
The cellar is also said to be haunted by a ghost of a gentleman from the 17th century wearing a Periwig, who only appears to women.
