Tris C left this review about Queens Head

Date of Visit: 1985.

A very traditional backstreet boozer at the time of my visit with two friends, but best known - appropriately enough given the name - as a gays'/trannys' pub where I recall standing at the bar next to a 'woman' who looked like Dame Hilda Bracket. Rumours are that this will return with a completely new interior surrounded by a retained façade.

The Queens Head looks like a proper old school London back street pub.
Once inside the pub still has two separate rooms,i had a drink in a small oblong shaped room to the front which was bare boarded,the seating was pew seats and chairs,there were two TVs on each side of the room showing tennis on mute.
There is a separate lounge to the rear which is smarter than the bar room where i had a drink.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Sharps Atlantic which went down very well,the other beer was Brains Reverend James.
Background music was playing and the pub was very busy on my early Wednesday evening visit.
There are not that many pubs left like this one in this area of London,give it a go.

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

Quite a traditional-looking pub which seems slightly out of place in this wealthy area but thankfully it has somehow managed to avoid being revamped as a fancy modern bar. Quite a mixed clientele, from taxi drivers in the front 'snug' to some more exotic types in the rear bar. This is quite spacious, and there also seemed to be another room to the side, meaning than overall the pub is rather larger than it first appears. I could only see two real ales, Pride and Doom Bar, but the first of these was decent enough (and there may have been more round the back).
