Very good plateful's of food at a fair price of £10 per main. Good beer. Genuinely friendly staff who all looked as if they enjoyed serving us ! A lovely water... More

We eat here regularly through the summer and the food is always good. Fish and chips are amazing and the specials are also very good. Whether you're looking for a snack or a full meal you won't go far wrong here!

Lovely pub right on river edge. Lots of seating and spotlessly clean inside and out. Waiting staff and bar staff all friendly. Food reasonably priced, as were the drinks, which is unusual for a riverside bar. Food freshly cooked and was delicious, would deffinatly reccomend the cheesy chips. First time we went we had a 45 minute wait for food... More

Went for a walk down the High Street and ended up at The Queens Head on Maldon quayside. We were only going to have a beer but then we saw some of the food coming out of the kitchen. Had jacket potato with chilli and cheese, and my fair lady had chicken in a bun with salad and chips. How... More

My wife an I decided that the weather was so nice we would have lunch out, taking into account that earlier on in the week we had spent £50 on a lunch time meal and the truth is you can only get so much blood out of a stone. We chose The Queens Head Maldon because it is situated nicely... More

Went for lunch on Friday, it was a nice day so we sat outside. The service was average but the food was very nice. The cheese was very strong which makes a change, normally most places now it is tasteless.

I must agree with the comments about surly staff. I've been coming here for 25 yrs and although the food is average it is sometimes spoilt by a couple of the staffs attitude. Most are very pleasant but if you dare complain about a meal you get a frosty reaction with no apologies forthcoming. Great location.

The haddock and chips was good- generous portion and very tasty. No bones in mine though dad found a few in his. The... More
