Called in on a Saturday evening for a drink as a family of 7 (6 adults 1 child) very compact bar area - not overly welcoming, served by quite an abrupt female. While ordering the round noticed a coke had been repeated in confusion by another member of the family. Explained to the female who insisted it was paid for... More

The Queens Head is situated on the main A6 in between Bedford & Rushden, it is a lovely oldie world looking hotel and the staff have a very warm welcome to any guests or diners. The food is excellent and service is the same.The only downside is that the car park is a little small for the size of the... More

We had to book an overnight stay near to Risely and by chance chose the Queens Head. All the staff were professional but friendly, welcoming and relaxed. You were made to feel at home. The room was nicely appointed and the bed was the most comfortable I've had. The evening meal was nicely done and hubby's steak was perfect. There... More

Hopelessly understaffed, but almost getting away with it thanks to tireless manageress/barmaid/waitress working monster shifts. Decor a bit overdue for attention. The bar/restaurant carpets were stained and desperate for a good vacuum cleaning. Financial problems or just staffing trouble? The bedroom and bathroom were spotless and the shower brilliant. The food was mixed - dinner largely good (not busy on... More

Perfectly described as an "old English Inn'. Conveniently located for Bedford and all the surrounding pretty vilages and hamlets. Warm welcome and service by the staff. Doesn't require a makeover that would spoil it, but it could do with a little uplift to help it on its way. Would return again.
