Tris C left this review about The Queens Head

Dating from the early 18th century, this incarnation was rebuilt in 1928 and had been a branch of Scruffy Murphy’s before reverting to its original name.
It’s not big, being relatively narrow, with the bar to the left, with an attractive match boarded front, modern top and ornate wood and mirrored back; a beer blackboard is opposite. The floor is modern boarded, then colonial-style wallpaper to the picture rail, thereafter pale grey paint up to a pale grey match boarded ceiling. Being narrow, the front section has drinking ledges, though there’s conventional seating to the rear with a green lino floor. However, the real showpiece is the rear alcove with its ornately carved wood, topped with a clock and beautiful mirrors, surrounded by shiny glazed blue and white tiles. Lighting comes from some extravagant crystal chandeliers, hanging perilously low; there are also Victorian-style sconces. Jazz played over the gramophone and customers seemed normal.
A very friendly barmaid presided over two unused pumps, then Pride, Hophead (reversed) and Wandle in fine fettle at £4.40 a pint which is great value for the area.
This place is a nice find and is definitely worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Queens Head

Surprisingly compact bar with an upstairs dining room (not visited), traditional London pub furniture / decor in the Taylor Walker mould and a pleasant welcome. First revisit for six years, with Wandle (£4.40, and in good shape) and London Pride available from two of the five handpumps. Like many places in the Soho area, currently benefits from a few extra tables out front due to Covid-19 related road closures, but not sure how long that will last?

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.
