A medium sized, open-plan community local nestled amongst the parade of surrounding shops. It has been described below as unpretentious and uncomplicated and that sums it up nicely. Certainly, the decor and fittings are all pretty plain, the best feature being the large tables in front of the main windows. There’s a dartboard, several TV screens for sport and a quiz machine for the more cerebrally minded. Outside, there is a small beer garden to the rear.

Three real ales on this visit: Dark Star ‘Best’, Harvey’s ‘Sussex Best’ and Courage ‘Best’. Quality was reasonable if, ironically, not the best. The Dark Star just shaded it.

The subdued young barmaid appeared to have taken a vow of silence. Several pints over various rounds were topped up without comment.

Pretty quiet when we called early Saturday evening, so not much of an atmosphere. One or two of the locals were amazed to hear that the place had been mentioned on BITE as a gay venue. An educated guess would say the local scene has moved on, if it ever met here, those comments having been made two years ago.

The Queen is a ‘does what it says on the tin’ sort of venue. It’s adequate and distinctly average. If I lived in the area, I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t drink here regularly. The current rating of 2.8 does seem a little harsh though. On my scale between five and six would seem fairer.

I come in here from time to time, sadly it seems to be getting worse & worse, we've lost 3 pubs within ½ mile of this place in the past 10 or so years - this could be next. I went there on Tuesday and it stank (that could have due to a guy at the bar, but I suspect it was more than just him). The Harveys (served at just the right temperature and pleasantly) tasted good considering you wouldn't expected that they get enough people drinking it here. Needs a good spring clean guys.

Blimey ! What Reviews ! Without any pre knowledge of the place I left Farnborough Hospital urgently needing a reviving pint ( don't ask ) This pub is the nearest. An average place no sexual preference was discernable, though I wouldn't notice anyway. A reasonable pint of Harvey's Best.It failed to lift the mood.
