Right next door to the Piccadilly Theatre, the comfortingly traditional Queen’s Head pleases the crowds with attractively priced pre-show deals (two courses for £15) and has also earned reputation among real ale fans as one of the few freehouses in the neighbourhood. Beers are lined up in rotation, but typical brews might include Sambrook’s Wandle, Butcombe Butter and Notting Hill Summer Blonde from the youthful Moncada Brewery. Drinks and snacks (sarnies, bangers, etc) are served in the Victorian/art deco bar, while the first-floor dining area is for proper sit-down meals – perhaps pork and Gressingham duck breast terrine with toasted sourdough bread, followed by a homemade pie, a big colourful salad or beer-battered fish and chips. If you still have room, finish with fruit crumble and proper custard. Note that the restaurant closes at 7pm; after that, it’s bar food only.
