Came here as was recommended and we were not disappointed. The food was lovely, you get the impression it is all home cooked and locally produced and it is difficult to get Sunday lunch as late as 4pm but they still had it available. Will definitely go back.

The food was excellent, service could have been a little better, we had to try to get waitresses attention as they passed; it was a little busy to be fair. Would go there again.

Frequent visits to the Queens Head are reliable. Broad range menu and specials board. Mussels and Paella are standard fare and always reliable if you love seafood.

The interior had a nice warm feeling and was quite busy, mainly people waiting/having meals, there are various dining areas, including a large conservatory. We had drinks in the bar area and dined in the... More

Called in for a family lunch during a day out. Pleasant atmosphere and nice views overlooking the canal. Good choice of menu and an extensive specials board, we struggled to decide. When the food arrived it was well presented. We all chose something diferent, so sampled each others dishes which were excellent. Friendly efficient service too, will be back for... More
