The Crown and Goose

The Crown & Goose is Knoxville’s first authentic London gastropub. Located in the Old City, the restaurant provides world class food in a traditional pub environment. Working directly with the owners, we designed the beer garden which wraps two sides of the restaurant’s exterior. Recycled aged-brick pavers combined with new tumbled cobble separates and identifies dining areas. Table seating on pavers is mixed with more informal family style dining at picnic tables set on tactile crushed pea stone. Timber beams salvaged from a local barn form a trellis that gives a sense of scale and enclosure to the main dining area.  Commissioned by the owners, a mural of a London city scene provides the garden’s backdrop.
