Square Meal Review of Great Queen Street ?

Well-sourced native ingredients, seasonal flavours and a gastropub vibe set the tone at this regular favourite with readers. An “excellent eclectic menu” changes twice daily, with no-fuss descriptions belying the care and attention that clearly goes into even the simplest of dishes. Options might include smoked cod’s roe matched with earthy beetroot and a kick of horseradish, or chickpea pancake flanked by creamed kale and a fried egg. Go with a group to order slow-cooked sharing dishes such as hearty venison pie or roast suckling pig shoulder with choucroute: “worth every penny”. In support you’ll find a roll-call of real ales, seasonal cocktails and cordials, plus well-chosen and reasonably priced wine served in casual tumblers. The dark, shabby-chic dining room is cosy on cold winter nights – though windows are thrown open in summer months for some alfresco action – and despite the odd complaint, friendly staff generally provide well-judged service.

    The long and narrow-ish dining room was extremely lively and buzzy; the air was filled, rather loudly, with the noisy chitter chatter of fellow diners. We were seated at a tiny table for two that we could barely get our legs under, right by the door (which was irritatingly breezy as the door didn’t shut properly) but none of it seemed to really matter; there was an infectiously lovely energy about the place...

  1. Great Queen Street is owned by the same group that also own Anchor and Hope, a gastropub which has carved a name for itself with its inventive British cooking and its use of head-to-tail ingredients. Great Queen Street’s menu plays less reliance on offal cooking, but it is similarly classically British. Its makes good use of seasonal ingredients, and as such the menu is ever changing. Great Queen Street is a rustic looking venue – the furniture is dark, and the lighting is kept low. Located on Great Queen Street in Covent Garden, it’s a perfect spot for a bout of casual central London dining.
