Rex Rattus left this review about Queens Head

This is a Fuller's pub, with London Pride and ESB (£2 a half) on. They do food obviously (condiments on tables) but there were no menus on the tables when I visited just after noon. I did see a sign advertising Sunday roasts, but said sign didn't quote a price.

The Queen's Head in question is that of Queen Elizabeth I judging by the pub sign - a head to which she remained attached, unlike several others who lived, and died, during her reign. This pub is on CAMRA's National Inventory of pubs with historic interiors. As you enter, the pub divides into two rooms, to the left and right. The room on the left looks a little more sumptuous, having collared the pub's armchair stock, but was apparently originally the public bar. This room leads out to the garden at the back. Both rooms retain on their walls their original (inter-war no doubt) stained wood fielded panelling up to dado level, and they both have large brick built fireplaces, with the one in the right room being of inglenook design, with a couple of narrow (effectively single seater) fixed benches to either side of it, and inside its wooden frame. The right hand room is furnished with normal tables and chairs, and leads on to a function room, which apparently effectively becomes a restaurant when not hired. This function room has a most unusual vaulted wood framed ceiling, which no doubt contributes largely to the pub's place on the National Inventory.

This is a classic inter-war suburban pub that has been little altered since it was built. It looks incredibly attractive from the outside with its red brick facade and with a bit of brewer's Tudor adding to its charm. It's a pleasure to drink in a place like this - but it helps if you like Fuller's ales.
