The Old Queens Head

Pub in Islington

The Old Queens Head pub in Islington is situated on Essex Road.  It sounds like a standard pub but is actually really lovely with a dim lit interior, comfortable couches and chandeliers.

The food is from Lucky Chip, who offer a range of tasty burgers (including a special burger each month) and sides. We had the Cheeseburger (beef patty, american cheese, ketchup, mustard and pickles) and the Kevin Bacon – same as the cheeseburger but with applewood smoked bacon and french fries. The burgers were really decent, cooked medium rare, and were juicy and filling!

I also managed to squeeze in the buffalo hot wings with blue cheese dressing, which were spicy but so awesome! The food was good value with a burger and fries at only around £12.

The bar staff were friendly and the venue offers a whole array of activities including comedy, quiz nights, karaoke and live music. With club nights at the weekend until 2am, it is a popular pub in Islington to visit.
