We dined here 25/4/2017. I had Landisfarne Chicken, my partner had Sea Bass. Both meals were perfectly cooked and substantial. The room is very pleasant, open to non-residents, and roomy.The service was good, and fast (although it was very quiet at the time).

The Queens Head has a large, traditional style of public bar that is both cosy and comfortable. The service was professional and very friendly. The beer was good as was the atmosphere in the bar. We didn't eat here but I have to say that the food we saw looked very good. Really nice pub.
