Always a good meal.

Always very busy. Fantastic range of food and also a good Gluten Free menu. Plenty of specials on each week. Very good Paella with plenty of fish and chicken. The risotto was excellent when we last went. Next to the canal, which you can walk along to work off your food. Watch yourself when trying... read more

I visit the Queens Head most weeks. It's great for when you get home from work late and you don't want to cook. They serve food 'til 9.30pm. Loads of dishes to choose from so there's something for everyone. Well cooked, sensibly priced, HUGE portions. Good pub food not pretending to be anything else.

We stopped here on the way home from the Ironworks for lunch. They are a good selection of food from light snacks to three course menu. Lovely atmosphere and warm friendly welcome. Food was very tasty and good size portion which offered excellent value for money. Will definitely come here again.

We visited here for a Birthday treat after having eaten in the Restaurant before - the food has always been great, but this time it was amazing! We started with the scallops with chorizo and smoked bacon, the black pudding scotch egg and the chicken goujons. All were delicious and cooked to an excellent standard; the chorizo and bacon were...

Called in off the cuff without booking and was pleasantly surprised to find the staff very pleasant and the food even better. After walking our dogs along the canalside we thought we would stop and have a drink and bite to eat we where welcomed to sit outside and have Sunday lunch and were delighted to have an outstanding meal....

Having called at three other venues en route in an attempt to get food, all of which had stopped serving at about 2.30 p.m., we finally found the Queens Head which serves food all day - what a relief! We received a really warm welcome on arrival and enjoyed a great bar snack from an extensive menu. Nothing was too... More

My wife booked this family birthday Sunday lunch based on a friend's recommendation. For the price paid I expected more than the tired, bland food served. We don't often dine out and this is why. I had a sirloin steak which was possible the worst I have ever had. Service was good.
