Co. Derry

The feeling in this good-size pub, done in pine and shades of antique yellow and terra-cotta, is fresh as the nearby sea. The Queen's has repeatedly and deservedly won awards for décor, professionalism, good food and drink and a staff who perfectly balance friendliness and efficiency. Try their chilli con carne.

St Patrick Street, Draperstown
