A pretty small pub tucked behind Picadilly,there are some original features ,a good bar back and fine mirrors at the rear with a Barclay Perkins mirror to the side.There is a bench seat and two brittanid tables to the front,with bar stools running along the wall and high tables at the rear.It wouldn't take many punters to fill up inside.
There is a restaurant on the first floor,while bar food is offered downstairs starting at £3.50 with pies £10 and cheese a speciality but pricey at £8 for two, £12 for three.Flatscreens were playing BBC News on mute,while the muzak was well chosen and enjoyably not too loud.
The bar supports 6 handpumps but was only offering on my trip London Pride,Sambrooks Wandle and Dark Star APA (£2.50 half NBSS 1.5,musty).
This is quite a charming little place but let down by bad ale.I can't understand why it's in the 2020 GBG.

Just around the corner from Piccadilly Circus and right next door to the Piccadilly Theatre, the Queen's Head is a typical Central London pub with the somewhat rarer distinction of being a free house. The pub has a compact ground floor bar with a long narrow single room arrangement, plus a first floor restaurant. A porch leads you into a bare boarded room with the servery down the right hand side. The bar has a standard dark wood counter and mirrored bar back, which catches the eye thanks to some nice old Guinness memorabilia (perhaps retained from the pub's days as a Scruffy Murphy's Irish pub) and a number of old signs along the top listing 'Ales', 'Wines, 'Spirits' and 'Stout'. A more sophisticated list of the drinks available can be found on a blackboard on the opposite wall which hangs above a drinking ledge and is flanked by various certificates and a fine old Barclay Perkins mirror. Limited low stool seating can be found to the front of the room under the modern frosted glass windows with the pub's name picked out on them, whilst high tables and stools are squeezed into a tight space behind some chunky structural pillars in the rear left corner. The walls have been covered with light, decorative wallpaper which jars somewhat with the dark wood panelling that predominates through much of the room, especially to the rear, where there is a good deal of standing space under numerous plain mirrors, a nice painting of the pub and a rather excessive chandelier. Stairs lead up to a dining room with its own bar which also hosts occasional comedy nights. Music played in the background during my stay, but the noise from a pretty busy post-work crowd rendered it pretty much obsolete.
Five cask ales were available on this visit - Fullers London Pride, Robinsons Trooper, Twickenham Naked Ladies, Sambrooks Wandle and Dark Star Hophead. Keg taps offered beers from the likes of Beavertown and Sierra Nevada and I noticed a pretty good range of craft bottles and cans in the fridges. My pint of Hophead cost me £4.10 and was a little below par, but the pub has found its way into the 2017 Good Beer Guide, so I may have just been a bit unfortunate.
This is a good little pub that I don't recall noticing previously, despite surely having passed by many times. I found it to be a friendly place with a nice buzz about it and a pretty good range of beers in traditional surrounds. It makes a good pre-theatre venue and is a useful bolthole should you find yourself in the area.

Decent traditional pub which for some reason I have missed during earlier visits to Soho. A couple of 4.7% real ales which went down nicely.
