The Queen Vic
The Heart of the Community
Throughout the pandemic we at the Queen Vic have worked to look after our community the best we can,
and we now pride ourselves on providing the safest, warmest, most comfortable welcome out there
The last couple of years have been a huge struggle for all of us. We hope that as we support you, you'll support us as we all get used to our New Normal
Ian and Philip took over the Queen Vic in 2012.
We are proud to have created a pub that is at the heart of its community.
Our warm welcome, no-nonsense approach to good behaviour, and determination to be a liberal haven all mean that we are one of the friendliest and safest pubs around.
We fundamentally believe that by creating a traditional, community-focussed atmosphere, with high-quality and interesting products, we can create a 'proper pub' that's fit for the Twenty-first Century.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

Why do you ask us to book?
By having pre-booked sessions we can reduce the flow of people through the building, and so reduce the risk of transmission.
Encouraging customers to book for a session reduces the likelihood of having people who are on a risky pub-crawl.
Encouraging bookings makes it easier for us to look after our locals, manage our space and keep it safe.
What changes have you made to the building to make it safe?
We have reduced our numbers of tables and seats to make effective social distancing possible.
We have used drapes to protect seated customers from those passing close by, and to guide people through the building in a naturally socially-distant way.
We have totally screened-off the bar to protect our team.
Why are you only open Thursday to Sunday?
The changes we've made to how we operate have made it harder to break-even. By opening only on what are our busiest sessions we can reduce staff costs and hopefully become more profitable.
Why has your menu changed?
To reduce our running costs chef is having to multi-task! Our new menu means we can carry on serving great quality food, but reduce our staffing costs.
Why do we have to order from an app? Technology scares me!
Ordering from your table by app reduces contact between you and our team.
Our app is basically an electronic menu. We hope that you'll find it easier (and possibly even fun) to look through some of our rarer and more unusual products to find your perfect drink.
