The Queens Arms

The Queens Arms
The Queens Arms in Pimlico

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

Looking in the window, we were initially a bit concerned that the Queens Arms was going to be a bit 'gastro' for our pub-crawling purposes. We needn't have fretted. The QA is perfectly poised to cater for food-hunters and drinkers alike. A separate dining room upstairs leaves more room for us swiggers downstairs.

Its bright open interior is an archetypal 21st century corner pub, with smart wooden panelling, a mirrored bar and brass fittings and that green-grey paint scheme that so many pubs now adopt. Yet this place is old, serving as a community pub since it was built in 1846. Briefly dabbling as a Slug and Lettuce, and then The Page, it's now been back to its original name for a while. (Though the outside seems to change every time we walk past... it's currently a gaudy blue/purple.)

The Queens Arms offers a range of London lagers and beers, a moderate wine list, and a tempting menu of British classics — there's a separate upstairs dining room if the main bar is busy. This pub's a good all-rounder, and only scores low marks for grammar, with its apostrophe-shy name.

This pub is on Twitter as @TheQueensArms. On Facebook. On Instagram.
