There are few pubs in London that you can take someone to for date night without them thinking that you intended to take them somewhere nicer around the corner, but forgot to make a booking. Unless, of course, you’re at a pub like The Queen Adelaide. It’s a retro pub on Uxbridge Road, with wood-panelled walls, a domed fireplace, 20s chandeliers, a giant painting of Queen Adelaide herself, and the kind of atmosphere that’s far more ‘charming date night’ than ‘hardcore boozer’. They serve proper gastropub fare with small plates like shin of beef croquette, but you really want one of their pies on your table.
