Needing a warm meal after a day outside we visited the Queens Head. A new couple seemed to be running the pub who were much more welcoming. The food was excellent and just what we needed. Nice selection of food and beers.

Have recently had some lovely meals here, with very friendly service. Today I tried the Homebaked Chocolate Brownie and it was the best I have ever tasted.

This Pub is now under new management, the new land lord is very important to the running of this pub restaurant, it is so much improved over the previous owner, the food was freshly cooked for us but the short wait was well worth it, the bacon baguette was superb and the cheesy chips were the best chips I have...

We didn't know what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the meal, which came in most adequate quantity. The establishment itself is very pleasant with a good atmosphere and we were very happy that we had chosen to eat there. Thank you.

typical English pub in a lovely village. Good food. Also - they offer smaller sizes of the most popular dishes which is great. Chunky chips, generous portions, lovely atmosphere and super service.

A traditional pub that serves food - and the 3 courses we had gave a strange impression in the sense that the starter was "basic" and relatively poor, the mains were "average" but the beef was of very good quality, and then the homemade dessert was the best chocolate brownie that we have had as far as we can recall.......so...

Thank you for your honest and straight forward review. We have taken over The Queens Head fairly recently. We are still working on parts of the menu that we feel could be improved. Look out for more homemade and cooked starters going forward. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally from producers in the area.Including our meats and fish.... More

We stayed at the campsite at the Queens Head for the weekend and what a fantastic place it was to be! We ate in the pub both nights (and breakfast!) and each time the food was fantastic and the ales were top notch. It's a lovely quiet village, in a beautiful area and we couldn't have asked for better hosts.... More
