I visited a while ago with friends and was disappointed with the lack of vegetarian options. I had veggie lasagne (how imaginative) and hoped that the quality and taste would make up for the lack of choice but it was quite bland and I enjoyed the garlic bread accompaniment more than the main dish. It also wasn't fresh, it tasted... More

This was a nice dinner we had yummy pork scratchings and garlic bread with cheese to start- we shouldn't have been so greedy as I couldn't finish the main course, we both chose a fairly spicy chicken curry with half rice, half chips and naan bread. No room for pud which I'm sure would have been good. I gave it... More

Menu`s were bought to us and we ordered , our food was bought to us very quickly, and it was delicious. We had steak and chips, and a chicken dish with chips - we even squeezed in a... More

I have been eating at the queens head for many years on a regular basis, and am rarely able to fault the quality of the food. Good value at all times, There are 2 things that I always notice though...some of the bar staff need to try smiling, and for goodness sake...paint or update the tables...chipping varnish is not attractive...

We visited the Queens Head for lunch - three adults and two children. It was a Sunday, so we made a simple choice of three Sunday roasts for the adults plus two pizzas from the children's menu. The menu looked good and the surroundings were very pleasant. Some 40 minutes went by and just as we were starting to get... More

We have been looking for somewhere to eat that feels welcoming and serves delicious food. By the canal we found the Queens Head and were not disappointed. Love the decor. The staff were extremely polite and friendly. Questioned what the meatballs were made from and was no trouble for them to find out. The menu gives you plenty of choices.... More

Apart from some very strange people sitting outside when we arrived we were alone inside for what seemed like an age before anyone arrived. We had a table in the conservatory and drinks came promptly. The food we ordered was hot but tasteless and bland. There was lots of it but it was still not good. Won't go back!

We recently went to this pub on a sunday at 12.00 after having gone Go Karting for my friends birthday. Whereas we thought everything was good including the food etc, our trip was completely spoilt by our first impressions when we asked for a table. After speaking to the man that seemed to be in charge, we asked him for... More

Went to Oswestry today to visit some family and we decided to have lunch out. I always pass the Queens Head on the A5 and hear nothing but good news from friends that have been there. Can tell everything is homemade, service was delightful. A very enjoyable visit. Will be back again very soon!
