About the Pub

A well restored building, built originally as a hotel, which was saved from becoming a pizza restaurant by a campaign run by local residents and supported by CAMRA. The pub boasts a wealth of carved fittings and original features, including a large circular central bar, making it an important historical landmark in Crouch End. It is listed on CAMRA's National inventory of pub interiors of special historic interest as well as being Grade II listed. It is a companion piece to the equally fine Salisbury, Green Lanes, N 4 . Both were built by the same developer - John Cathles Hill and it retains much of its original layout, including a screen in the front bar, now cut through to give all round access. Wonderful art nouveau-style stained glass and a marvellous, circular main entrance. One end of the pub has now been laid out for formal dining, with an ornate ceiling and open kitchen and there is a small garden at the rear (heated in winter). Run by a company called Food and Fuel, see the website link for other outlets and pub's food offering. At a visit in Noiv 2017, the five guests were Adnams Mosaic, Five Points Green Hop, Muswell Hillbillies IPA, Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale and Truman Treason.

Many of the fittings of the pub were manufactured in his workshops. The notable Art Nouveau glass was supplied by Cakebread, Robey. Along with its sister pub by Hill, the Salisbury in Green Lanes, the Queen's Hotel represents the pinnacle of late Victorian pub design and is a remarkable survival, with exceptional joinery and glass.
