Welcome to the Gipsy Queen one of London’s last remaining independently run pubs. Our North London owners Marc, Lucy and Ben… not forgetting Mumford and Freda the dogs, are all on a mission to maintain the heritage of this charming local landmark for the whole local community to enjoy.
The Gipsy Queen is the sister pub of the ever endearing Victoria Stakes which is located at the foot of Muswell Hill and Alexandra Palace. Both pubs adhere to the same high standards of quality and service and both are dog friendly!
We are a traditional pub with a modern flavour. Inside we have real ale, real music and the most gorgeous of real fires. Our secret (ssshhh!), deceptively large outdoor space at the back of the pub transports you to Havana with a multitude of colour and vibrancy. We are based in Kentish Town, a stone’s throw away from the foot of Hampstead Heath, and a short walk to Belsize Park, Chalk Farm and Camden Town.
Our friendly and ever welcoming team, who are led by general manager Simon, strives to provide you with the best experience we can offer, providing knowledge, care and warmth to every customer from NW5 and beyond.
Food at the Gipsy Queen
The Gipsy Queen is now bringing an American flavour to NW5 with our partnership with the iconic Chicago Rib Shack, serving the best Burgers, Wings and Ribs this side of the Atlantic! The Chicago Rib shack were founded in 1982 in Knightsbridge and are still producing great, authentic American food nearly 35 years on. It is an exciting time for the ‘Rib Shack with more sites opening all over London and as far away as Leeds.
If you’re worried that means the end for our famous Sunday roasts then never fear, on a Sunday our passionate and creative kitchen team return to work alongside the Chicago Rib Shack to create roasted perfection on a plate, always using our farm to fork ethos. All our roast dinners are all chopped, minced, cured, pickled and seasoned in house for you to enjoy.
Drink at The Gipsy Queen
We have eighteen keg lines offering lagers, pale ales, IPA’s, stouts, craft beers and ciders of all description from all around the world. We tap (pun intended) in to the best microbreweries in the UK to serve the best beers around. We also have four Cask Ale pumps providing an ever changing selection of hand-picked cask ales, from hoppy pale ales in the summer to winter warmers when the nights draw in.
Why not come in and check out our ever changing ‘beer board’ which gives a handy description of what we are currently serving and what is being readied in the cellar. We are proud to be a member of CAMRA and encourage all our patrons to get behind the campaign for real ale!
From overcoats drinking Mulled Wine to sunglasses and Aperol Spritz we have cocktails for all weather – if you don’t see it on the list then just ask!
Our wine menu is carefully chosen to provide great quality and great value. We have wines from all around the world, hand selected with our great suppliers.
Whether you’re celebrating a special day or just want to talk business, The Gipsy Queen might be the venue for you.
