Pre booked table as it was busy weekend in Hawkshead due to Christmas Market. Luckily got table near coal fire which was big bonus as was a chilly night. Food was superb, service was excellent (we were served by Vika) and atmosphere was lovely.

We were staying in Hawkshead for the weekend. A few of the group had eaten here before and so knew it was good.

Each time my husband and I visit the Lakes we go to hawkshead and enjoy a meal here. The staff are nice and friendly, some have a few problems with English but you can explain what you want and if they are not too sure they will ask the manager.

Got off to a bad start when our booking was not found, although I had confirmed by email earlier in the week Fortunately there were tables free as it was Sunday evening and we enjoyed the lamb shoulder(huge portion) and the belly pork(amazing crispy crackling)

Great food and drink, excellent service, buzzing atmosphere. The restaurant was packed but you were not rushed. There were 10 of us but there was no hassle and all the food was served quickly and was delicious. I would personally recommend the lamb.

We have been coming to the Queens Head, as diners and paying guests, for decades. And I have to say that perhaps four years ago it was the perfect place for us. We returned last week, during half term, with our family and were so looking forward to the evening. We weren't residents but had booked a table for five... More
