The service and house wine was good.

The food portions for Sunday Roast were too small considering the meal wasn’t cheap. Also, the roast potatoes were under cooked.

Roast was nothing to shout about, pretty poor for the price..was a shame really as the website looked good!

Really friendly pub in Walthamstow Village, this was my second visit for Sunday lunch. The food is really good and roast potatoes were excellent, really crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, just as they should be. Sides for the beef are a little unusual along with swede and carrots were kale and beetroot n but very nice all the same. The pub is dog friendly, with a good atmosphere and very good service. Only drawbacks are that it is a tad expensive and the Pork and Chicken dishes do not come with Yorkshires, which is a shame. Would still recommend a visit though.

Went with friends for Sunday lunch. Food was really nice just wasn't much of it. Could have done with more than two potatoes and a few more carrots. Staff were really friendly and love the chilled atmosphere. Would go again.

Excellent Sunday lunch. Great choice: we had two pate dishes to start followed by one chicken, one beef and one very lovely sea bass. Chocolate pudding with honeycomb for pudding. Great table service. All very prompt. Lovely waiting staff. Excellent value. Very good. I'll be back!

Ordered 4 roasts; 3 Chicken and 1 beef. All chicken overcooked, RUMP steak was tough, not the right beef for a roast dinner. All roast potatoes were burnt and dark brown in colour - difficult to cut, let alone eat! Not sure how food was allowed to leave the kitchen.
Was allowed not to pay for the food but I insisted we pay for the 2 rounds of drinks we had. The guy that allowed us not to pay for the meal asked me what drinks we had, I told him and then I paid in full. On the way home my husband pointed out that he actually paid for the first round at the bar on our arrival - only 1 round should have been on the bill !!!!! so I was overcharged as well on the drinks.
When I booked the table on line there was a section that asked if it was for an occasion - I ticked 'Birthday' - that wasn't even mentioned.
All 4 of us left hungry and very disappointed, which was a shame.

Really lovely food and service, just incredibly noisy and the rowdy people drinking in the eating area made hearing one's fellow diner, rather hard!

Overall feeling was very much a adult/family vibe which was great. Service was on form, lovely staff and the food was tasty. Ordered the smoked cheese burger and wasn't disappointed. Would recommend, such a nice area too. 👍

The food was poor quality and overpriced. We ordered fish pie but it was cold in the middle. We then changed our orders and the food that cake wasn’t great either. It’s a nice pub with good atmosphere for a drink but I won’t eat there again

I would highly reccomend the Queens Arms to a friend. The menu is fairly traditional but service quality and food is high, staff and friendly and general experience is repeatable and excellent.

The service was good but the place is far too noisy. The fish pie and kale was very salty. The food price did not reflect the quality.

The food was great although more veg would have been welcome. The service was friendly and helpful. However, we were surprised, as a party of just two, that the bill showed a service charge of 12.5% had been added. We didn't remember seeing this on the Sunday menu (and of course, it had by this time, been removed from the table, but we paid. Afterwards we checked the main menu displayed outside and it said (in small print) that it was a discretionary service charge. We are happy to pay a service charge if we're part of a large party (6/8 or more), but felt it was over the top for just two people.

We were really looking forward to eating at the Queens Arms as the reviews have been really good and we knew you had to book in advance as it is really popular. We were seated in the main part of the pub which is quite lively on a Saturday night..next time I would request a table in the area nearer the garden, and book an earlier time. The service started off ok, our waitress seemed friendly enough but a couple of dishes on the main menu were already off, always a bit disappointing. There were a couple of specials but no vegetarian specials which was a shame. The food came pretty quickly and the waitress topped up our water without being asked which was great. The wine was also good. However, after our plates had been cleared by another waitress, we were then pretty much left alone and had to ask for the bill, no effort was made to ask us if we would like puddings or coffee, which we may well have ordered, or to let us know if we did want to order then the kitchen would be closing after a certain time..
AS it was a friends birthday evening out, I did not want to make a fuss, but I did let the management know and explained how the service seemed to really tail off after our mains were cleared and they had missed out on a pudding order. All in all, for a gastropub it is a good place to eat, but I would not choose it again as we have had better, friendlier attentive service at another pub nearby and maybe Eat 17 or the Village Kitchen would have been better choices for a special birthday. Shame, we were disappointed as the actual pub building is amazing. Will stick to drinking there next time.

Slightly smaller portions than usual, this may be due to it being a busy day, Fathers Day. But overall really lovely. They even let us stay at the table for longer as the next booking wasn't for a while after.

Our Sunday lunch was tasty, with some interesting vegetable accompaniments. It was, however, not much more than lukewarm, despite the fairly early service. The pub does get very busy around 1.00 pm.

Lovely food and service, do not like the seating for two people. Because we booked we were given little table against the wall. People who hadn't booked given a four seat table. Next time will ask for a better table. Will definitely return for the food.

Mother days : Nice Place and very busy , TBH food was average and very pricey for what you get on the plate ( think big plate not much on it ) , we also had a vegetarian child with us so asked for a dinner without any meat and was still changed full price . cost us will over £££

On the positive note , the staff were friendly and I liked the pale ale they served
