The Old Queen's Head

23 user reviews

The Old Queen's Head in Angel has a bit of reputation for raucous behaviour. This fun London pub doesn't do things in half measures; Sunday roasts are filled with board games, and Bloody Marys and every night of the week there's either live music or a DJ spinning the decks. The pub's burgers come from Lucky Chip and are piled high with cheese and bacon, plus there's a karaoke room; dinner has never been this much fun.
