I have to concur with the reicews above - the bouncers were terrible when I went. Rude and aggressive and kept people queueing for ages for no reason - only to let their mates in who barged past everyone. Will never darken its doors again.

I worked on the Queen Mary 1990 and to be honest the bouncers were top notch then. I've been back a few times over the years but it's not the same. It's technically leaking I believe. There used to be a great bar crew there a long time ago (managed by a mr Mike Challenger - take a bow, Mike!).
It's only a pub that rocks from side to side!

I went to this place for the first time last Saturday. I was somewhat apprehensive due to the comments I read on this site, but I have to say, Me and and my mates really enjoyed it, and didn't get any grief from the bouncers.
I went for a 30th birthday and we didn't (for once!) feel too old for a club and the music was suitably cheesy.
Definatley will go again!

I went to the Queen Mary tonight at 9.05 and was greeted at the door by the rudest bouncer ever. He asked " are we expecting supermarket prices?" when we requested a better price than the standard cover charge when there were 7 of us. And this was five minutes after they had started charging. I raised this to the manager Gary who assured us this was not standard practise. when we left we were requested to "leave the premises" because we were being "aggressive" when we were waiting to say goodbye to our friend who's birthday it was, when we were standing by the door in a very ordinary fashion. No surprise it was the exact same bouncer. I was disappointed with an establishment who has a reputation of having superior service to be treated like cheapskates and agressive individuals. I hope everyone will take note and realise that this venue is completlety overrated in its respect.

A friend and I foolishly attempted to go to the Queen Mary last Friday. The deck looked at most half full, but because this is London the bouncers were running one of those queues to try to make it look all exclusive and desirable. But it was a nice evening and people seemed to be coming and going, so we figured we'd wait a bit. After 20 mins (during which the number of people who left was easily twice the number they'd let in) we were next in the queue. At which point, out of the blue, a bouncer came from the inside of the boat and announced, "There's about 50 people too many on board, so we have to wait for them to leave before we can let any more people on." We declined the tantalising opportunity to continue to wait.

There's nothing I like more than attempting to go into a crappy pub, then being treated like a dog by a team of bouncers who I am quite certain would struggle to spell "cat" if you gave them the "c" and the "a". Do yourself and the rest of London a favour, don't ever go to this pub, and with a bit of luck it will go out of business, and the bouncers and management will die of starvation (or stupidity).
