user reviews of the Queens Head, Uxbridge

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Unfortunately Spirit the pub chain which the Queen’s Head was in is now owned by Greene King. Gone are guest ales from good, local brewers like Windsor & Eton. They have been replaced bland beer from Greene King and there is not much else if you would prefer something other than a dark, malty beer. Four out of six ales when I visited were Rocking Rudolph, Abbott Ale, Old Speckled Hen and GK IPA, all from Greene King. Another was the ubiquitous Doom Bore. I had Brains Rev James. It was OK but, like nearly all the rest, was another dark, malty beer.

Went in there on Saturday night. The barmaid was talking to a couple of friends at the bar. She ended the conversation but instead of serving me, walked stright past me to clean some glasses. A barman appeared behind the bar but he ignored me too. At that stageI gave up and left.
Can't help feeling that this pub takes itself a little too seriously.

Was in here Friday evening after the Middlesex v Somerset cricket game. It's the best pub in Uxbridge in my opinion. Located just off the High Street down a side street, it is fairly small inside and seating can be difficult to find. Luckily there is a small room at the rear that often has a spare table. Sky News was showing on the TVs and the pub was fairly popular with the post-cricket crowd. Discounts on real ale are offered for CAMRA card holders. Ales were Cotleigh Tawny Owl & Commando Hoofing, Brains The Rev James, Binghams Twyford Tipple & Berkshire Bee, Twickenham Summer Sun & Fullers London Pride. The cider was Westons Family Reserve.

great pub. wood floorboards as which drop a couple of inches by the bar.the couple of 6x beer i had were excellent. for greater london at 2-65 a pint was great price. got served easily and out of the 3 pubs i used in uxbridge this was far the best one

Pleasant low-ceilinged pub with an old feel to it and creaky floorboards. There are seating areas at the front with the bar a little further back and a small room to the left at the rear. An impressive range of guest beers were shown on a chalkboard with the presumed intention that this is ticked when they are available. However on both of my visits beers were restricted to Youngs Ordinary, Landlord, 6X and an Adnams. Ate there once and the menu is typical pub grub fayre, reasonably priced and good portions. One of the few remaining unspoilt pubs in the area.

The pub has recently re-opened and still serves real ales. It seems to have grown in popularity with the majority of patrons being in the 'over thirties' bracket, but it was still possible to find a vacant table on a recent visit.

Closed pub as pub of the day ??????

The pub closed on Saturday 20 Dec. It is one of 14 Orchid Group pubs that have gone into administration. Punch Taverns will be the new owners when it reopens.
Fortunately, there are no outstanding Christmas bookings, but it seems odd for Orchid to do this at such a busy time of the year.

Not a bad place, not bad beer, but with the smoking ban in effect there is nowhere at all to smoke outside and if I am out with friends who smoke then we'd avaoid this a standing on the street with a ciggie on a busy road is no fun. Feel sorry for the pub cos they probably haven't got any outside space and will lose otu to pubs who have like the tuns and the Fig Tree.

Charleymouse says it's one for ale drinkers, yes of course it is, that's what this site is about isn't it? Beer.

Very nice real ales & some nice guest beers too. For charleymouse the fizzy lager is OK according to my friend

It's OK this place, and not just for oldies I assure you. Most Uxbridge pubs are disaster areas but this one is alright.

proper old pub with loads of history, it caters for the older crowd and its a good place for a quiet beer

A bit depressing and dark. One for ale drinkers, not my sort of pub but the bar staff are polite and the place is clean.

Fullers, Youngs or a lesser Gales pint? We had the latter by way of a change. Decent beer although surroundings a bit dark with wood and purple ceiling. Back room has art deco glass ceiling adding more light there. Very quiet when we called early Sunday evening

Seems an allright type of pub - Quite an old one.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming, to strangers and locals. Their Goosberry Pie is something to die for!

My pub of choice when I lived in Uxbridge (although I didn't live there for very long or go to many pubs there). Decent beer and cosy atmosphere.
