The Queens Head is a decent looking corner pub.
Once inside there is a nice looking oblong shaped room to the left,this room looked more like a lounge,the room was carpeted,there were two tall tables and stools near the entrance and bench seating to the left which faced the bar,there was a TV on the left wall showing Bargain Hunt.
There was a seperate room to the right which was divided into two seperate areas,this room looked similar to the left room but had a darts board in each area.
The pub is a Youngs tied house,there were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of youngs bitter which had just been pulled off,this was a very nice drink,the other beers were Youngs Special and Courage Directors.
The pub was very quiet on my Wednesday dinner visit,but i quite enjoyed my time in this pub.

This is a Young’s pub with just the Bitter on, but it was a decent pint, and at £2.85 a pint at a decent price as well. There were no menus in sight (I was in Tuesday lunchtime) but there were some clingfilm wrapped sandwiches/salad stuff in a small traditional food servery.
This really is the pub where the Queen Mother pulled the pint that features in photographs in just about every Young’s pub. There is a brass plaque commemorating this event on the pillar next to the handpump she used. The pub sign features the head of the young Queen Mother (possibly as homage to the royal visit?) whereas on the said pillar there is a bust of Queen Victoria. Very Eastenders.
The pub itself is very basic. It still features two separate rooms, with (I believe) the room on the right being the old Saloon Bar, which would make the room in which I sat, and where the Queen Mother pulled that pint, the old Public Bar. I thought the latter room was the nicer of the two, and as the other room had the dart board, maybe I’m wrong. They wouldn’t have taken the Queen Mum into the Public Bar, would they? Anyway, both rooms are comfortably furnished with normal tables and chairs and a few small stools. The pub was desperately quiet during my visit, with just me, the barmaid, and one old boy and his dog in there. This is a basic backstreet eastend boozer. This is a dying breed, but I’m glad this one still survives. Do pay a visit if you want to see the sort of pub that would have been commonplace 50 or 60 years ago.

traditional east end corner local selling Youngs beers,a very friendly landlady (been there all her life) who likes a good old chat about the old times. this pub is where the Late Queen Mum visited and pulled a pint and now the picture is hanging in all Youngs Pubs. This is how all pubs should be and should not be missed. 5 minutes from Limehouse Station
