After staying in the Ullswater area a number of times, we never could find any decent pubs to eat at. However, after talking to a local lady, this gem was recommended and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent! I think the black pudding and haggis starter is the best I have ever had and my husband's lamb chops... More

Although we agree with most of these reviews, there is one glaring omission. The Queens Head is dog friendly, but dogs are not confined to the non - eating area (tap room) and on more than one occasion, we witnessed dogs on the dining tables.......very unhygenic....if not actually illegal.

I booked this over the phone at the last minute without much research, I was really just looking for a place to sleep to break my journey to Scotland. When you first arrive at a place first impressions count and I knew this was going to be good when the car park was full to bursting. A warm welcome, comfy... More

We were staying a few miles down the road and hadn't realised we were so close to this old friend, we had to call in again. Once again the staff were very welcoming and friendly and the menu had a great range of foods. The service was great and when the food arrived there was nothing to complain about, well-cooked...

We stayed here for one night when travelling to Scotland and it was an ideal stop over. Good location close to M6 and also the lakes. The pub had loads of character and the staff were really friendly making us and our dog feel very welcome. Our room was comfortable but a little small. The food, both the evening meal... More

Situated just south west of Penrith this historic inn is well situated for the motorway, Penrith which is worth a visit and eastern parts of the lakes such as Ullswater and Haweswater although being close to the A66 most places are a relatively short drive away. The room was pretty standard fare for a B&B but had all I needed... More

This was our second visit on our way south. Old world pub with excellent food and good service. This time I went for the gammon, last time it was the steak & ale pie. We find The Queens Head Inn, Tirrel to be unquestionably better than most motorway services. If a stranger to the area have faith in your Satnav.... More

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble.We were welcomed like one of the family! Room small but comfortable. Good value for money though. Heading down for a second visit at end of June.
