Recommended this pub by the owner of the Friar's Head in nearby Akebar which was under renovation at the time. That was my good fortune. The landlady of the Queens Head was absolutely delightful and made us feel very welcomed. The menu was very tempting so we ordered a variety of dishes and shared. Fabulous food and swift service. We'll... More

Eat here twice while spending a week walking in the Dales. The food on both occasions was of a high standard. The specials, mainly fish, could not be faulted. The staff too were helpful, very pleasant and welcoming. With the second visit the pub was full and the staff were very good in keeping you informed as to the wait... More

This is a good pick if you're wanting good quality home cooked food. The deserts are to die for! The only thing it I would say if that the dinning room could do with a bit of a spruce up as its looking a bit tired. Apart from that it's bob on!!

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review your experience of the Queens Head and I'm glad that you enjoyed your meals with us. I am, however, a little perplexed by your tip for me as I was cooking both nights and didn't have the pleasure of meeting you.....maybe next time! Best wishes Ian More

If you like large portions this is the place to go! I had a starter of black pudding and kidneys which was excellent. The piece of black pudding measured 41/2 x 21/2 x 1/2 inch! This was followed by a very good pork belly slice on black pudding...the same size. I enjoyed both courses but could not face a pudding.... More

Only there over night, but what attention to detail in the room we stayed in and the lovely service in the restaurant. The range of food on the menu was excellent, plenty of fish dish options- my favourite, plus so many other good choices. Staff were really efficient and friendly. I'd recommend this for anyone wanting a quiet, stress busting... More
