Three generations of the Frank family found new inspiration in England’s growing gastropub movement.
In 2009, they refurbished, restyled and re-opened the traditional British pub at Five Crowns as Corona del Mar’s first and only English-style gastropub, SideDoor.

SideDoor is a separate operation within Five Crowns. Enter on Poppy Street under the big red key and find a comfortable and convivial atmosphere. Cozy up to one of the charming fireplaces. The focus at SideDoor is on seasonal small plates portioned for sharing, cheese and charcuterie prepared by a chef on duty at the new charcuterie station and a selection of world-class spirits. A wide range of wines and craft beers in a variety of sizes and pours are constantly updated with new offerings for the curious to explore. With its warm, relaxed atmosphere, SideDoor, the casual neighborhood gastropub, will have its guests returning again and again.

    Our first “go” at Side Door. We had the perfect booth - quiet and for the first time in months the four of us could hold a full conversation the entire time we were there. We were warmly welcomed, our server was a bit “overpowering” and a bit intrusive. Our food was yummy but we had ordered the burger, split to share but it came as a large one and we had to ask for a second plate. The temp changed when the Trivia Game began but we had almost completed our meal and was to a problem. A fun evening and we will do it again. Quite it’s one of our top priorities now.

    The last couple of times we've gone to The Side Door, our servers have been just not that good. While in the Five Crowns, service is wonderful. Our server also had a larger table and that may have added to her lack of attention. She was pleasant. The food was delicious.

    Prices are starting to be insane for wine and food 400 dollars for three dishes and drinks is really expensive.

    Loved our night at Side Door! We were given a cozy booth that was a perfect spot to hang out and enjoy cocktails and food! The macaroni and cheese is so decadent and delicious! We also had the calamari and shrimp, which was fantastic! We finished with an amazing hot fudge sundae, where we got to pour on the chocolate sauce ourselves! So fun and yummy!! I’d definitely recommend and we’ll be back often!

    The taco meat was burnt! The sliders were excellent. Our water was not refilled. And we were there for a special birthday and it was recognized.
