Old Queen Street Café


The best conversations take place over good food.

Located on a quiet corner of Westminster, yet only a few minutes’ walk from the hustle and bustle of Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, Old Queen Street Café is an oasis of good food, tasty cocktails and great quality artisan coffee.

Open for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Brunch, the menus at OQS feature their own take on many British classics. Crafted by food writer Diana Henry and Shelagh Ryan of Lantana, this British brasserie features a seasonally changing menu with a focus on premium UK suppliers.

Pop in for a meal or join them for their Monday-Friday cocktail hour.
