Like its siblings the Anchor & Hope and Canton Arms, Great Queen Street flies the flag for great British cooking in comfortably down-at-heel surroundings – think mismatched furniture, wine in tumblers, and a terse twice-daily menu packed with thoughtfully sourced native ingredients. Seasonal favours generally hit the mark, from creamy goats’ curd on crunchy toasts with a fresh uplift of thyme and lemon to perfectly cooked roast duck with cherries or hearty crab and leek lasagne boasting an intense bouillabaisse-style sauce. Show-stealing sharing dishes such as veal and tarragon pie or seven-hour lamb shoulder with gratin dauphinoise are also worth a punt, while drinks include a cracking list of reasonably priced wines, craft beers, seasonal cordials and cocktails. Friendly, clued-up staff keep the tables turning briskly as a buzzy crowd laps up the atmosphere.
