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.

Third time we have stopped at the Queens Head and every time the meals have been good and service excellent This time, for me the Black pudding scotch egg was excellent and I also had a good lambs liver in an onion gravy on a bed of mustard mash

Enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch at The Queens Head. Tasty lamb with a good selection of fresh vegetables, roast and dauphinois potatoes. Service was very friendly and quick. Every table was reserved which is always a good sign of the quality of food and service.

Called in whilst driving home at 4pm on Wednesday evening. Only a couple of people in the restaurant, although a few tables were already marked as reserved, so guess it is busy later on. The lunch menu was 12 until 6pm with choices at £6.95 each. Portion sizes were good - my wife had the club sandwich, which came with... More

Friendly staff and good menu, with a specials board too. Nice wine and good choice of all beverages. Good for couples and families too. My ten year old daughter feels really grown up when we go here.
