We were hungry for fish and chips and googled "best fish and chips in St. Pete" and The Queenshead popped up - and it was an accurate description! A repurposed fueling station on Central Avenue, The Queenshead Eurobar and Restaurant has great pub food, interesting cocktails, and great beers. We had the Cheddar Cauliflower Croquets as an appetizer - yummy, not oily - and, of course, the fish and chips! We washed it down with a Stella and a Belgian wheat beer -- and finished with a chocolate tort topped with coconut whipped cream. Great food, great service, and great ambiance!

Four of us went there for dinner last night. Three of us had fish and chips and my wife had vegetation shepherds pie. We all thought the food tasted great. They have a selection of craft beers which two of us tried and thought they were good. This is a small restaurant with some seating both inside and outside. We will be back.

Just moved to St Pete and new friends invited us to meet them for dinner.

Got a great warm welcome, server told us about additions to the menu and featured beers.

It was awesome because we never felt rushed while we chatted - we grabbed drinks raining from local hefeweiss beer, a chocolate coconut stout to a red sangria. There something for everyone.

We shared some roasted chicken peas and arancini - the chick peas were tasty and had a great smoked flavor from the smoked paprika. The arancini had three nice size pieces but were unfortunately missing that crispy outside because they were smothered in red sauce ( might be better served on the side).

Entrees had rave reviews - two had the pouting with short ribs, on traditional shepherds pie and I had the fish and chips. A HUGE portion of light crispy fried fish, hand cut fries with malt reduction and really yummy minted peas.

It felt like home, people were friendly, really comfortable, great place for dinner and conversations. Live music outside with an awesome patio.

We'll be back

Just like visiting London! Cool/hip vibe with British flare! Fish & Chips are a must have as well as many of the other British favs!

Like to try new places and just happened to stop in. The bartender was very nice and gave us the history of the place. We sat inside and enjoyed the atmosphere. The prices on a Sunday seemed a little pricey, 6 - 7 dollars a drink and that's beer. There are so many places downtown that have the same beer for less. Probably will not be back, try next door at Key West.
