From bombs and bar brawls to village pub vibe. The story of The Queens.

If the walls of The Queens Crouch End could talk they’d tell colourful stories of Victorian workers, falling bombs, bar brawls and calmer times of community hubbub.

The grand Victorian Pub with its stunning art nouveau stained glass was built as a hotel at the turn of the century and sat alongside the Queens Opera House, which was demolished after heavy bomb damage during the Second World War.

Yet despite its grandeur the Crouch End pub has always had a down to earth vibe.
