I visited yesterday for the first time in 45 years of drinking, & was quite surprised that I'd not been before!
It's a nice pub, I suppose, but nothing to get too 'country pub' excited about. Those reviewers who use that phrase probably don't 'use' the real country that often?
£4.50 for a pint of ESB is steep to me; but the place was civilised, quiet & pleasant at 3.30pmish.
I can tell, though, that it must get crammed with wanky West London, yuppy bourgeoisie in the evenings! :-)
So, pros 'n' cons, as ever!

Just re-opened Oct 2015 after renovations. Ten years ago, the charm of the Queen's Head was that it was essentially a country pub in Hammersmith, albeit a rather large one. There was an enormous dried hop along the bar, and the old timber framing was used to good effect. Two renovations on, and that has been lost. Half the seats are now tall stools, the rest Euro-printed coulourful designs which won't look good in a year or so. There is now techno musak. Bright blue is the colour behind the bar, de rigeure. The food used to be all right for a pub, I suppose, and remains all right, but no better, I suppose. This 'glamourization' includes a few cheap and uncomfortable chairs now out front on the street. The rear beer garden survives, and being southerly, gets some evening sun, even in October, unlike the seats on the street. There is a noticeable rise in prices to go with this (pint of Peroni and tub of ordinary salted peanuts from the tin came to £8.05!). The loss of atmosphere, increase in prices, and same so-so food means not much reason to go back. A great loss to the neighbourhood.

The previous comments seem to cover pretty much everything about this pub but I wanted to add one as I like it so much. What I would also say is how much the pub feels part of what is a friendly local community, hosting residents' nights as well as putting on activities such as a monthly 'Treasure Quest' which takes place around the local area. I've not done it but by all accounts this is very enjoyable and taken part in by people of all ages.

It's also very popular with people from close by offices both at lunchtimes and in the evenings, as well as being a favourite for socialising for many others. Tucked away on the tranquil Brook Green it has a lovely atmosphere and always in my experience efficient service. The menu is nothing particularly remarkable but the food is very good and quite reasonably priced considering the location. Drink is not cheap, well over 4 for a glass of wine or a pint (ale around the 4 mark I'm told but my friend was impressed with the quality of the usual Fuller's offerings here).

The pub is also far bigger than it looks as has been mentioned, lots of snug places to sit, and the garden is one of the best places you could spend a summer's afternoon/evening. So as you may be able to tell, I'm another fan of this pub.

Agree with the last couple of comments, really nice, friendly and welcoming pub this. Food is also very good. A lot more space inside than you'd think from the outside and the garden is lovely. Nice selection of drinks too I think including a gin brewed locally. Will give it a 9, would probably be a 10 if my Heineken had been poured better, minor complaint though.

Lovely pub, I can't speak highly enough of it. It makes the most of being fortunate with the area; Brook Green is a lovely place. Being on the green the pub is lucky but the rest of what makes it so good are of their own making, that is friendly and attentive service, great selection of food and drink and a really well set out pub. The images of the green and other parts of Hammersmith on the walls are a nice touch too. It all obviously pays off as it's a really popular pub with local residents, visitors to the area and local businesses alike, whatever the time of day. I think you have to book for Sunday lunches or in the evenings for larger groups. Worth it though, one of my favourite pubs!
