Many of the pubs between Warren Street and Goodge Street are moderate drinking holes, but this one sticks out. It's a bit off the main drag, but it's one of the most popular pubs in the area. It attracts a fair mix of punters, the beers - especially Adnam's and the excellent St. Austell Tribute - are well kept and a jovial atmosphere pervades. The bar staff are prompt and friendly and aren't overawed by big crowds at the bar. It's perhaps one worth sampling on a quieter night - a winter's evening drinking next to the fire is something we regularly look forward to. Shame the old brass till has been retired after decades of decent service, but otherwise still a cracking, old-fashioned boozer.

I love the King and Queen in Fitzrovia. Stoically old fashioned, off the beaten track, with a hardy following of locals and others taken by its charm. The upholstery, warm service and jovial atmosphere clearly have not changed in years, but why should they? Perfect for sports, this is a true rugby pub, one can a cracking range of beers and on occasion a platter of scotch eggs and pork pies to feed the hardy drinkers.

The thing I love about this pub the most is that it is located in the heart of London, surrounded by high rises and modernity, by faceless gastropubs and eateries, yet it seems untroubled and determined to stick it out.

Attracts and enhances the finest bellies in London.

Friendly staff and nice themed interior. Nice ales. Food very disappointing, especially for price (april '13)

Visited on Thursday after work. Not too busy, had Tribute, Doom Bar and a guest beer (Dartmoor, I think) on. Had the Doom Bar and guest, really well-kept. Really good atmosphere and the staff were great (got a free pint, barman gave me an extra Doom bar by mistake!) The only issue I have is the arrangement of tables and chairs in front of the bar. This sometimes makes it difficult to get to the bar - minor detail really. On the whole a really good pub - will return.
