“Lovely pub, lovely staff, nice plonk, naff food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Gorgeous pub. Staff always lovely and friendly. Wine and beer fab. Pork scratchings - the business.

...but this place just cannot get its food right. Scampi tasted like it was from Iceland. Chips naff. A few years ago, this place had beautiful, food that actually tasted homemade. Shame. I try it about every six months and then get disappointed again.

“Great Lunch Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Stopped at the Queens Head Sunday for lunch. Great location. We sat out the front in the sunshine and watched the world go by. The food was the usual pub grub, nice but nothing special but not too pricey either. I found the staff very friendly and attentive. When we finished we walked around the back of the pub and saw a huge garden that was packed. Burley was a cute place that both my husband and I would like to revisit.

“Slow service, off hand staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

I was really looking forward to my Sunday lunch at the Queen's Head as I have enjoyed myvisits there before. Sadly it was extremely disappointing. Not only did the food take almost an hour to appear but also the staff were defiant and stubbornly avoided each and every opportunity to apologise for such disappointing service. If there had been a simple apology and warm polite service I could have accepted it. The good news is that the Red Chilli and the Red Lion - both a stones throw away - are enjoying a very good local reputation at the moment and come highly recommended.

“Yorkshire bistro pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Small atmospheric pub with good Yorkshire food. Specials board a bit limited (chef take note!) if you visit often. Prices reasonable and being able to book a table is a bonus.
