A lovely hotel with friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble, the bedroom was clean, comfortable, other guests respected each other eg no noise and the food was delicious. Well recommended for a home from home stay ☺️

Hawkshead is a lovely little village though a little too touristy for me. A lot of places are cashing in on this and charge ridiculous money for naff food. The Queens Head however has lovely old world charm. The staff were friendly and service great. The food was delicious and I had to stop looking at other tables as I... More

There is no doubt that this is a well run pub/restaurant. From bar to food to kitchen everything is tuned in for an excellent quick service. The staff are super efficient and very friendly and the food although appearing a little on the expensive side is truly scrumptious. The menu caters for all tastes and the chefs deserve praise for...

This is a really old fashioned place with winding corridors to the rooms. Ours was comfortable (modern bathroom with plenty of accessories) comfy bed, good hospitality tray with cakes or biscuits each day. The only problem was that there was a wardrobe - but no drawers! So my knickers socks and jumpers were in a pile on the floor! But... More

We were staying locally and ate here twice over the course of 4 days - once on Friday evening and then for Sunday lunch. We bought our dog with us both times, and he just curled up and went to sleep on the rug next to our table. The food was excellent both times, I would highly recommend it. The... More

Popped in from the rain on 13/07 lunchtime. Lots of others had the same idea. Dog lovers heaven as at least half of the parties had dogs with them. No problems though. Had fish finger sarnie and chips. Top notch. Top end of the mark not a findus dish lol. Would certainly visit again.

We actually were staying in a different hotel in hawkshead but we're told wonderful things about The Queens Head. Lovely historic building. Food was lovely with fantastic portion size. We actually thought the starter was put through as a main when it first came (the ribs) food came swiftly and was not disappointed. Had the Plough Mans platter off the... More

Me and my boyfriend decided to spend our anniversary in the lakes and came across the queen's head hotel on trip advisor. We read the reviews, had a look at the pictures of the place and were happy with what we saw so we booked. We probably picked the best days to come because the weather was absolutely gorgeous! We...

Ive stayed here a couple of times before, and thought it about time to say something about it. from the outside you could be miss led in thinking its your average pub.....looks can be very misleading... from the moment I checked in the service is outstanding. the Queens Head has international staff on summer contracts I presume, as the young...
