Quiz Night has moved to Sunday

Due to increased demand for dinner reservations on Wednesday nights, we’ve decided to move our brilliant quiz to Sunday instead. Sundays are all about restorative Bloody Marys, lazy afternoon drinks and our spectacular roast dinners, so it’s already our favourite day of the week. But now there’s yet another reason to savour the last of the weekend by lingering a little longer for a general knowledge busting evening of fun! Bookings available on 020 3092 0598 [email protected] or simply turn up and join in.

Easter Monday Egg Hunt

Keep the kiddies occupied this Easter Monday with an egg hunt here at The Gipsy Queen. Between 12pm and 1pm we invite under-12s to go in search of the chocolate eggs we’ve hidden to see how many they can find. Any treats they find will be theirs to keep and a prize will be given to the intrepid explorer who hunts down the most.

With food served all day, the whole family can indulge in a delicious lunch after all the excitement. Children’s options will be available alongside our usual menu, as well as sweet treats for those who didn’t get lucky in the hunt.

Good luck explorers!

Hackney Brewery launch their 1000th brew at The Gipsy Queen

Arguably the epicentre of London’s craft brewing movement, Hackney has become home to some of the capital’s best-loved breweries. Hackney Brewery have been blazing a trail over there since 2011, and have not only established themselves as one of London’s most innovative brewers, but also our personal favourites. Which is why we are truly honoured and excited to be hosting the launch of Hackney’s 1000th brew at The Gipsy Queen on 29th January. We hope you’ll join us for this seminal event, when you’ll be able to meet the brewers themselves, sample their 1000th Brew as well as some of their other beloved brews and kick up your heels to some live sounds. Hackney Brewery beer launch

We scooped silver in the 2015 National Scotch Egg Challenge!

Things got very egg-citing one chilly Tuesday night earlier this month at The Canonbury pub, as 21 top UK chefs battled it out in the fifth annual Scotch Egg Challenge. The place was packed to the rafters with eager egg fans, including a number of London’s most influential chefs and restaurateurs, in addition to an esteemed panel of judges comprising Evening Standard’s food critic and Queen of the London restaurant scene Fay Maschler, journalist and food writer Zoe Williams, Guardian food editor Bob Granleese, restaurateur Henry Harris and ‘restaurant guru’ Hugh Wright.

Our very own Tom Humphries was amongst the contenders, producing the little beauty pictured below, which you can try for yourself on our bar menu available all day every day. Best of all, his Pork Shoulder and Fennel creation scooped second place! We couldn’t be more pleased or proud. Well done Tom!
