High quality, remote location.

Tucked away in the village of Finghall is The Queens Head. Surprisingly close to fine dining. The meal presentation was excellent. The restaurant is wheelchair accessible and so is the bathroom.

Trying to be a posh pub but just ended up meaning no atmosphere. Food nice but Sea Bass needed more sauce with it, no choice of vegetables with it, Couldn't swap the new potatoes for chips. So didn't feel particularly looked after.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Queens Head.....however, we do take issue with some of your comments. Firstly, we aspire to be a well presented, clean village pub, offering freshly cooked, quality local produce.......we don't want to be 'posh'....just relaxed and informal, and I believe we achieve this whether you eat in the dining room with it's...

Visited for early evening special which had plenty of choice to suit diners. I chose off special whilst my partner chose off a la carte. You can choose to eat in restaurant with fantastic views over North Yorkshire or in the very homely and welcoming pub. Food was spot on of excellent quality and the steak was very good cooked...

Dined here this week with a group of friends and took advantage of their early bird dinner served before 7.30pm. A very varied menu and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. Definitely worth a visit if you're in this area.

We have just spent a lovely relaxing weekend at The Queens Head. Its a fantastic place to stay to explore the area. The room we stayed in, The Warren, was lovely, clean and very spacious. A really comfortable bed in its own room, a massive bathroom and a nice cosy feeling lounge. We ate in both the restaurant and pub... More
