Although we had rund and booked a meal, on arrival we met by "Lady" who announced there was no roast dinner. We have found out that landlord has now lost his "Chef" so no longer serves meals. We found his hostilary is more hostile than..."Service with a smile" Never go againMore

I've been working in the area for several weeks and have eaten he re around 10 times. There is always a welcome at the bar, often by the landlord I'm person. Menu is a good selection of pub classics and there are regular promotions like...2 mains for £15 or curry night etc. Food is well sourced and we'll prepared with good presentation without being pretentious. Fullers ales are on draft and a good wine and spirits selection is also on offer. Thoroughly recommend.More

Had a very nice lunch here. Very quiet with only 4 other people in the place. Nice ham egg and chips and burger.

There has been a change of ownership at the Queen's Head and the previous owners were a hard act to follow. After a few initial problems there is now a permanent chef and as a result the food has improved. We had a family Sunday...lunch and the choice was good and the food preparation was excellent. Great value for money. We have also lunched there, and the same applies. Service was very good Now do specialities every weekday.More

We enjoy the Queen’s Head a lot, nice n comfy and an friendly place for a quick drink (or 2). We used to eat there quite regularly too but not so sure we will be anymore. Not sure if there has been a change in...management but menu is very different & much worse than we’ve seen previously. It’s almost fast-food ish now with no real culinary skills. A couple of friends that would regularly join us are vegetarian & vegan - used to be so well catered for & that was why it seemed to get so popular on Fri/Sat nights. Sadly hardly anything to cater for those needs anymore. Shame. Good for a drink but we’ll be eating elsewhere from now on.More

As said the wait was well worth it five planned trips to dine at the queens head but always something came up and had to cancel. Finally we experienced the cuisine The service is first class the decoration and Ambience is first class Only one...point to mention is the toilets need attention which the staff agreed this is being performed within the next month The choices are all beyond the normal menu someone has put a lot of time and thought into choices, We had a job to make a decision everything was so tempting finally we decided on the lasagne home made, plus a vegetarian version both had a twang in the taste delicious The other choice was the home made pie perfect choice. Nice size portions to everything was brilliant. The deserts were a winner for us having tried the ice cream served here some time ago it was a sundae and another meal was a rhubarb pie with custard very very good choice The atmosphere is lovely here and location perfectMore
