“Cheap n cheerful pub grub.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

If you're after a filling but no frills meal with a drink thrown in for well under a tenner, you'd be hard pressed to beat this place. Others have mentioned that it's sometimes a bit rowdy... well, it's a big, popular, town-centre pub; it's hardly going to offer secluded romantic fine-dining, is it!
By eating early and leaving before 8:30, noise hasn't been an issue for us. The tables at the front can be rather draughty and those towards the rear are wafted by smokers' aromas as they are en route to the 'garden', but by getting there early you can avoid those areas.
The food has always been as described, promptly served by friendly and helpful staff.
We'll visit again.

“Typical Wetherspoons”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

It would seem that Wetherspoons generally seem to suffer from the same problem. They attract a certain undesirable clientele. I won't say anymore than that. The 'Denmead Queen' is no exception. Whilst the food is ok and reasonably priced the atmosphere and environment of the place is unsettling to say the least.

“sunday dinner”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We went here for a Sunday roast at 5 pm. They serve until 10'oclock but they had no veg to go with the roast. Opted for fish & chips. On its arrival my fish looked just like a plate of cremated batter. It was totally inedible. Give them their due they did me a fresh meal which was ok. Given this I went out for a meal with my husband but he had finished his before I got mine. Staff not really interested in their customers. Will be a while before we try this place again.
