(corner of East Avenue)
We popped in here on Saturday evening and
the place was vibrant and buzzing. The Queens Arms seems to be
going from strength to strength after Its recent refurbishment and
The Á La Carte evening menu bills food a cut above your average pub
grub with main courses at around £15. Still yet to sample the food but
if popularity is anything to go by they're on to a winner!

Had a brilliant evening at The Queens, the singer was lovely and we had
a dance or two with strangers - it's that sort of pub, when we left -
locals came and said goodbye - we'll be back.

Queens Arms was large spit and sawdust ''did you see the match last
night'' pub in the heart of Walthamstow Village. Since the refurb
earlier this year all of the spit and some of the sawdust have been
removed. The exterior has been updated for a much more contemporary look
featuring attractive hanging flower baskets. Another improvement is the
removal of those sad looking benches that used to hug the kurb at the
corner of the East Avenue and Orford Road.
Inside, most of the pubby nick-nacks have been removed and with a lick
of paint and a new carpet the interior has a cleaner, fresher look - but
the Queens Arms is still the Queens Arms.
The pool table and dartboard have been replaced by an huge TV on a stand
(similar to the ones you see in room sets at Ikea) along with a few high
tables and barstools.
The stage is still there and the Queens still has the occasional 'do' at
the weekends featuring either live music or the resident DJ when the pub
is open until 12.30am.
screen football (and other sports events) are still a big draw for the
Queens and rumour has it they provide good old fashioned 'dip your
fingers in' bar snacks on match days. The Queens remains the only pub in
the village to show the footy.
Beer is good, they serve an above-average pint of Guinness a couple of
cask ales – Fuller’s London Pride and Greene King IPA - both of
which are generally in good nick. Premium lagers are cold and sparkling.
Prices are reasonable (for the Village).
garden, formerly the back yard, has been renovated and transformed into
a pleasant area with attractive pot plants.
the changes to the Queens are good. I may pop in to watch the TV myself
when Leyton Orient get into Europe.
