The Queens is a grade II* listed public house and former hotel on the corner of Elder Avenue and Tottenham Lane in Crouch End, London.[1]

History[edit]

It was originally built as The Queen's Hotel by the architect and developer John Cathles Hill in 1898-1902,[2] or 1899–1901,[1] with art nouveau stained glass by Cakebread Robey.[2] It was described in Pevsner as "one of suburban London's outstanding grand pubs".[2]

It was accompanied by the Queen's Opera House which was opened in 1897 but damaged by bombing during the Second World War and subsequently demolished. It stood behind Topsfield Parade opposite the hotel.[2]
