We really enjoyed our stay. This was recommended by family and friends. We weren't disappointed. Would highly recommend. Food good. Room clean. The team very welcoming and friendly, from the very start. Everything you could want for a short break. Relaxing break wanted. Relaxing break achieved.

We stayed for 3 nights and were more than happy to eat in the bar on all 3 nights - not a very big menu but everything we had was wonderful, very well cooked, more special than a lot of the other places we have stayed in the Lakes, loved they did pizza's too, a bit of a contrast to... More

We are regular visitors to Hawkshead and always enjoyed a drink and eating at the Queen's Head. When we called in September, when we were staying in the village it felt like something had changed. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic pub with some great beers and a lovely atmosphere, but we weren't keen that staff came round late... More

For years I have eaten at The Queen’s Head several times a year, drawn back by the good food, warm welcome, good atmosphere and pleasant and helpful staff. Today a friend and I made our new year pilgrimage to the pub with high expectations. We were so disappointed that we thought the place must be under new management – we... More

Called into this lovely pub on a grim afternoon in hawkshead. Friendly staff shown us to a cute little table by the fire. Just what we needed. I ordered the fish finger sandwich and my mum ordered the club. Both meals were absolutely delicious. The bread was fresh and thick and the fish was flavourful and flaked apart. Huge sandwiches...

We are regular visitors to Hawkshead and The Queens Hotel for drinks and food, however I am extremely disappointed with the treatment we received on Saturday 6th December 2014. I realise the Christmas Fair was on and that everywhere would be busy so decided to have a couple of drinks and eat our meal early. We arrived at the Queens... More

Thank you to all the staff at the Queen’s Head for making our stay with you last Sunday as wonderful as always. It was our 4th or 5th stay (i’ve lost count) and we just love being there. This time we were celebrating Sue’s birthday (we’ll be back on or around 21st January for mine), which was made even more... More
