Spot on!
Nov 2021 • Couples
My girlfriend and I booked a Sunday roast of the back of seeing a post on Instagram, from the booking to the meal it was all just so spot on. I hadn’t been to the pub for years, I used to play in bands in the upstairs bar and could not believe the ignorance I must have young lad as I had never noticed the decor in the main bar, wow! It has to be up there with one of the most stunning pub interiors the city has to offer. The lamb roast was perfect and the service lovely! We will definitely be back!
Cheers!

Best Sunday roast in my life
Oct 2021 • Friends
Decided to visit The Old Queens Head for a Sunday Roast.
Even though we didn’t have a reservation the host managed to find a table for me and my friends. The place was packed. That didn’t stop them though to give us a great service.
Had few cocktails before we order out roasts and all of them were incredible especially their Ginger Mojito.
When we ordered food the staff suggested the beef roast and creamed spinach and cauliflower cheese as sides. I trusted their recommendations as they seemed really sure we wouldn’t be disappointed. One of my friends is vegetarian and had a wellington mushroom roast.
Every single dish was amazing and the portions were massive. Honestly the best roast i’ve ever had. When we finished our mains the staff asked if we wanted dessert. How could we resist?
So happy to spent our time at the Old Queens Head, would definitely visit them again and i won’t stop suggesting to everyone i know for how incredible the food and the service was.

Disappointing Sunday roast
Oct 2021 • Friends
Booked this pub after all the rave reviews about the Sunday roast but was extremely disappointing. Pub and decor is cool but that was where it ended… were shown to our table and no one came back to even do a drinks order for 30 minutes. Ordered food and drink together for fear we’d be waiting ages otherwise for someone to take the food order! Drinks took a while - 2 of them arrived eventually but the mocktail took a long time.
We all went for the roast lamb which came fairly promptly however the sides of cauliflower cheese and pigs in blankets came when we were over half way through the roast. There was only a slice of lamb which was tough, potatoes weren’t crispy and roasted - seemed undercooked / boiled. The whole thing was just warm and not hot. The cauliflower cheese was literally cauliflower in water - sauce was disgusting. Once we had finished also had to ask twice for the bill as staff distracted chatting with each other.
Overall was extremely disappointing after the hype and service wasn’t great.

Not a great visit for us...
Sep 2021
Lovely looking pub, aesthetically pleasing inside but, the Award Winning Sunday Roast we travelled across London for was not worth it at all... such a let down we wish we went to our local.

No cutlery when our food actually arrived, 1 and a quarter slices of Lamb which was tough as old boots, no mint sauce, we had to ask. Roast potatoes seemed more like they were boiled, nothing crispy about them and quite hard inside. Undercooked carrots and parsnip, soggy yorkshire pudding, 10 peas but the gravy was nice!

Great place to eat and drink at all times - Sunday Roast Delicious too!
Sep 2021
Use this lovely interesting pub on a regular basis and must say it is full of style and history, the staff are welcoming and are very friendly always giving that bit extra to make things run smoothly and as a customer you and your friends are comfortable. We have had the Sunday roast on many occasions and can honestly say it simply the best. I am not a vegetarian but have often eaten the veg roast and it’s delicious! The veg Wellington is perfect. We have had friends and family for a roast and all agree it is lovely - no complaints. I so enjoyed my Sunday roast this week, roast Beef and veg it was so very good and the gravy was exceptional just gets better and better. As for their burgers they are amazing too, I personally enjoy the chicken burger that has a slight kick to it also served with coleslaw. All the burgers are good and you order fries separately - but guaranteed a good feed. All in all this pub has everything you need - Great atmosphere, amazing staff, music and different areas within the building with other things going on. Never any bother as all very friendly and easy going clientele. Would definitely recommend a visit. 😊

Disappointing and disorganised
Aug 2021 • Friends
After re-searching where to go for a Sunday Roast in London, I came across The Old Queens Head. I had read good things so was really looking forward to our reservation. The pub was busy when we arrived but nothing too crazy. To begin with, we were told to sit wherever we wanted however I feel that this meant we were instantly forgotten about. Nobody came over to take our order until the manager noticed and came over himself. Both our glasses for our water had lipstick marks on, it took multiple attempts and about 10 minutes to get clean glasses; i also asked for straws 3 times but never got any. I was willing to let this slide and not ruin our experience because I personally hate when people complain about minor things however the overall experience was disappointing. When our food arrived they didn’t give us any cutlery, they said they were going to bring it over. We waited over 5 minutes, sat with our food and still nobody brought us any cutlery over. My sister went up to ask at the bar and they said they didn’t have any cutlery and that they’d go and get some. She waited around thinking they would give it to her but he told her to go sit down and he’d bring it over as soon as they had some. By this time we had been sat with our food for over 10 minutes without any cutlery. Multiple staff members were swanning around, sitting at tables chatting to customers and unaware of the fact we were sat not able to eat our food. Finally i decided to go back up to the bar and ask for cutlery again due to the fact they had clearly forgotten. I was given cutlery but by the time we started to eat our food was pretty much cold. This was a shame as the food was nice and i had been looking forward to my roast all weekend. When coming to pay, the staff apologised however we were not offered any discount or complementary drinks, i didn’t expect this but most places offer. I just feel the vibe of the place was too chilled meaning that the staff felt they didn’t need to make a conscious effort. I would never usually write a review like this however the purpose of going out for food is to have an enjoyable experience with good service and this was far from that. It almost felt like a joke, everything felt disjointed and disorganised.
