We were staying locally, and the Queens Inn was well recommended when we checked on Tripadvisor. We noticed a few poor reviews, but decided to give them the benefit of the doubt.
This was a big mistake !!!
The prices are expensive for the food offered. The dish I ordered, "Roast shoulder of Lamb" (£15.50 iirc), turned out to be shredded, pressed into a small pot, and turned onto a plate. For me, it was like ordering a steak, and being served a burger !
That aside, whilst still having the main dishs available, they had run out of the advertised side dishes, so mash, instead of Dauphinois, my plate was cold, as was the food, and bland.
My God sun changed his main dish, because they'd run out of the advertised side, and opted for the "safe" option of steak, & "thrice" cooked chips. The steak was ok, but the chips were foul, and tasted as they looked. They were a dark oily colour, overly firm, and tasted of burnt oil. They had barely seen the pan once, let alone "thrice".
The staff were friendly, and polite, however, they were very young, and really didn't know how to deal with the complain about the food.
The bill came to £56.00 for one starter, two mains, and a few drinks. expensive for what we had if the meal was good, but if it was good, you don't mind !!!
So, when you come across the Queens Head HAWKHURST, on Trpadvisor, or another review site, take note of the poor reviews, they may be out numbered by the good reviews, but WHY TAKE A CHANCE, we did, and regret it. Find somewhere else to enjoy a meal !!!
