About The Old Queen's Head

A gorgeous antique interior, a delicious menu and some top DJs at weekends. The Old Queen's Head opened with a fantastic recipe for success in 2006 and it's been full ever since. With only a nominal cover charge on Fridays and Saturdays, it's a cracking compromise between a pub and a club, or a decent warm-up for the latter. More about The Old Queen's Head
