Another excellent meal at the Queens Head with friendly and efficient service. The Black pudding and bacon starter was soooo good and the garlic mushrooms make it hard to choose which to have. Both portions were enormous! The venison stew was delicious with a proper old fashioned dumpling in the middle. Roast beef came cooked to perfection after being asked... More

Not exactly the most welcoming pub, such a shame as it seemed great on the website. I ordered fillet steak and my friend had a burger. My steak was over seasoned with salt and too much fat and gristle. We were never asked if everything was ok with our meals as I would have brought this to their attention. I... More

Overlooking saddington reservoir across the fields to the rear this lovely pub has a friendly welcoming manager and an comfortable atmosphere. We ordered starters and can recommend the whitebait served beautifully in its own little basket. Most of us chose steak as a main course both rump and sirloin were good. My sirloin medium rare was perfectly cooked and served... More

We visited this pub on a Thursday evening in late January. Not only did they have up to 50% off the menu for January, which was a nice surprise but the standard and quality of the food is fantastic. We all enjoyed Chicken or Beef Burgers - but the plate of food is huge with lots of salad, coleslaw and... More
