Square Meal Review of The Old Queen's Head ?

Sir Walter Raleigh is rumoured to have romanced the Virgin Queen at this large, handsome pub. The imposing, original 17th-century fireplace now looms over a lively crowd, lured by regular comedy nights, big-name DJs & live bands. In the past, Lenny Henry, Annie Mac, the Kooks & Foals have all visited. Shot racks at £15 fuel the fun, & there’s Doom Bar, Sagres, Birra Morretti & Symonds cider on draught. Slinky cocktails such as the Queen’s Vesper (Bombay Sapphire, Grey Goose, Grand Marnier & Noilly Prat) further lubricate proceedings. Food is fairly straightforward pub grub at equally unthreatening prices, though on Saturdays there’s a good brunch selection – from fish-finger sandwiches to steak, egg & chips. On Sundays, diners with king-sized appetites load up on a roast with all the meats, plus an extra Yorkie, for £19.50.

  1. You’re kinda spoilt for choice if you’re looking for a place to drink on Essex Road. A handful of quality boozers (some great places to eat too!) are clustered close to where Essex Road meets Upper Street with a few more commendable establishments presenting themselves up the road nearer De Beauvoir Town. Among the best of Essex Road’s pubs is the Old Queen’s Head...
