The Queens Head is a small independent pub in the heart of London’s West End. Capturing all things British, we pride ourselves upon stocking locally sourced ale’s while serving homemade traditional pub food. Situated upstairs from our busy quaint little bar, the restaurant serves a menu of fresh ingredients from sustainable and ethical sources. Popular classics such as our delicious Fish & Chips and our homemade Piccadilly Pies are a big hit with our regulars and first time visitors alike. Next door to the Piccadilly Theatre we also offer a 2 course pre-theatre menu for just £15. If you’re looking for quality food and drink, vibrant atmosphere, a building soaked in history and friendly staff then this is the place to be.

Service was a bit slow- we waited 35 mins for our food - and we were well outside the lunch rush. They’re supposed to be famous for their pies - but it’s the fish and chips that looked amazing.

we enjoyed our meal before going to the theatre. Service on one dish was a bit slow - though we were warned we wonder why as it was a relatively simple salmon dish.

We chose this simply on the basis of its location as we had an early show at the Piccadilly Theatre. Now we know it exists we will return. The Queens Head is an independent historic pub one minute from Piccadilly Circus. Upstairs is a quiet restaurant with lovely staff. The menu includes pre-theatre options keenly priced and a good selection of vegetarian options too. Pies are a speciality. We had a vegetarian pie with mash and veg-good pastry and tasty filling-pub fare updated for modern times. Also salmon beautifully cooked. We noticed others eating huge portions of fish and chips too. The cheese comes from Paxton and Whitfield and the drinks are good too. Happy to recommend it.

We visited this lovely pub after a matinee at the theatre. Although it was quite busy downstairs, the restaurant upstairs was very peaceful. Service could not have been better and the food was yummy.

All three of us had the Beef and Ale pie and it was excellent. We were booked in at 6 as we were going to the theatre and the service was good but unhurried. I would certainly happily recommend this place.

Lovely independent pub, good bar with quirky seating and a nice atmosphere.
Tasty, wholesome pub food. We had the pies, steak and chicken as they were recommended and
we enjoyed them. The dining room is lovely and feels like a private venue.

A good find in central London, away from the crowds but just off the beaten track, that feels authentic and is worth a visit.

Great place to meet a friend from out of town for a catch up. Steak & ale pie and mash was delicious, beer lovely, nice little restaurant upstairs a haven of calm and shelter from the crowds below, to talk without having to raise our voices. Really liked that it's an independent pub doing well too, and they say they use local suppliers and ingredients - would have been nice to know who these are.

Good food. We ordered sparkling wine but received champagne,they charged us the lower price.
Food took a bit longer then expected, but the waitress kept us informed and discounted the bill as compensation. Quite a small dining area, so suggest booking at busy times.
Would return.
