A bit of Britain in Houston — and a bit of India, too — keeps us coming back to The Queen Vic Pub & Kitchen in Upper Kirby. Indeed, it's the kind of place where you can get so cozy with a craft beer and a curry with chips, you might never want to leave. Befitting its name, the pub also has a brilliant beer selection, including hard-to-find classics and limited-batch Houston brews.
Probably the best pub food in Houston. Great Indian dishes and Curries. Lamb Vindaloo is fantastic, not as spice as I like, but excellent. Good crowd, and the tables don't turn quickly. Worth a try, and definitely better that it's neighbor (Red Lion) just a few blocks away.
I people picked a place to live based on the neighbourhood pub, the population around Queen Vic would be in the tens of thousands (all trying to find a spot within a one block radius).

Also an amazing patio. Sit outside if you can.

Although there's snazzier fare to enjoy at the Queen Vic, dismissing the fish and chips would be a royal mistake. This classy take on the dish involves a bouquet of spry fries and several thick halibut filets encased in a perky coriander batter. Sides of ketchup and dill yogurt sauce are there to keep the Yanks happy, but just a few squeezes of lemon and dabs of vinegar do just as well. Although the Queen Vic, unlike its beloved namesake, has not reigned for 60 years, the fish and chips just... More »
