Island Queen

Island Queen

Part of our Best Pubs in London microsite. See if we've included your local.

With its gorgeous wooden interior and copious fronds and flowers, The Island Queen feels ever-so-slightly tropical. An equatorial gin palace, or something.

The cosy horse-shoe-shaped main bar is seemingly embiggened by the presence of huge mirrors along the walls. An equally cosy parlour space is presided over by a portrait of Queen Victoria, adding to the pub's colonial vibe.

The beer choice in here once felt exemplary, but the rest of the world has caught up, and it's now merely good. Mostly familiar names, with the odd curveball. Cocktail drinkers and those after wine or spirits are similarly well-served, but without any great statement.

Note, the pub is undergoing a refit as we write these words (July 2023). We'll back back soon to see how it looks.
