The food was excellent, service could have been a little better, we had to try to get waitresses attention as they passed; it was a little busy to be fair. Would go there again.

Frequent visits to the Queens Head are reliable. Broad range menu and specials board. Mussels and Paella are standard fare and always reliable if you love seafood.

Looked like it might be a nice place, but doesn't allow dogs... very clever idea for a country pub! So we got back on the road.
