The Queen’s Head: Going Back To Its Roots

The Queen’s Head: Going Back To Its Roots

Under its enthusiastic new management team, The Queen’s Head is a pub transformed

Eagle-eyed locals may have spotted that the former Smokehouse (prior to that it was The Hole in the Wall) on Sutton Lane North has recently become The Queen’s Head. And that name hasn’t just been chosen at random.

’I researched the history of the premises and discovered that there’s been a public house here since 1722,’ says new owner Aneta Barratt. ‘The first recorded name comes in 1856, when an official licence to sell beer was granted, and the hostelry then is registered as The Queen’s Head. At the time, there was also a brewery on the site.’

Aneta is an entrepreneur and business turnaround specialist. Living in Kew Bridge with her family, she came across the pub as a customer and loved the building and itsatmosphere. Hospitality is in Aneta’s genes – her family own a hotel in Poland – and her partner in the new venture is Max Pintus, a Chiswick local with extensive managerial experience in the UK and the USA.

‘We have retained the previous kitchen team – they had a good reputation – and we use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients in a menu that focuses on traditional English gastropub dishes with a modern twist,’ explains Max. ‘Our Sunday roasts are proving very popular; as well as beef, pork, chicken and a vegetarian option, we have different cuts such as ox cheek and brisket and, since we do all the butchery on-site, we make our own burgers and serve excellent steaks. Also, our chef will always do his best to accommodate any individual requests.’

With a superb range of bottled and tap beers, wines and spirits, a lively bar and a quiet Snug, a lovely garden for summer BBQs and plenty of space which can be reserved for parties and special occasions, The Queen’s Head certainly has all the ingredients to be a success.

‘We want to be a proper neighbourhood pub with a family-friendly atmosphere,’ says Aneta. ‘That’s why we brought back the original name. You can be sure that you’ll receive superb service and a very warm welcome.’
