A park-side gastro pub serving a winning combination of Spanish and British food, the Queen’s Head and Artichoke gets the Lardbutty ‘Sunday roast of the year 2010‘ award.

On my visit yesterday – before a screening of Alice in Wonderland at Regent’s Park open-air theatre – staff welcomed us as we walked in; were attentive while sharing a joke, and seemed to be enjoying themselves at work (a very good sign).

First deliberation: tapas or main food menu?

Both. Among our party of four we shared a few tapas (fabulous beetroot with creme fraiche + poppy seeds, grilled halloumi, salt + pepper calamari aioli and buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, basil + oil) and all opted for Sunday roast beef.

I’ll be visiting here again despite its location being nowhere near where I work or live – this place has got everything just right.
