Went twice in a week as we were so impressed. It's a nice big spacious pub - much larger than you think driving past it. We were served by a friendly land lady and shown to our table in the restaurant area. We had roast beef Sunday lunch which was delicious - lots of soft juicy beef and piles of... More

It has been over 2 years since I last visited this pub / restaurant in the village of Needingworth and it has changed very little. The public bar was relatively full but the restaurant section was quite empty but it did fill up while we were there. The lunch menu offered a reasonable choice as well as a 'Specials Board'...

Booked meal prior to my son getting married nearby. Food excellent and service top notch, it is not always easy to cater for a large party but the staff at the Queens Head all pulled together to deliver a great evening, thank you..

If you like dire slow service and waiting at the bar for a long time then this is the ideal venue for you. The bar wasn't even that busy !!!! Very poor....the ferry boat just down the road or the cock in Hemingford grey are much better for food or drinks

I visited the Queens Head this week to meet a friend and we both had a lovely three course meal which was well cooked, very tasty, large portions and well presented. I chose the home made chicken liver pate which was served with warm pieces of toasted bread, chutney, onion relish and salad garnish which I followed with a sea... More

We were staying nearby and by chance found this absolutely delightful pub for our Saturday evening meal. The eating area was set separate from the main bar and ambience was good. 2 young waitresses were serving who were very attentive and efficient without being too conspicuous . We did not realise what a treat was in store for us. The... More

Even though we eat here regularly there is never any chance of getting bored with the extensive menu and ever changing specials. Value for money combined with top notch food perfectly presented are the norm not the exception. The winning combination of Linda and Fraser supported by a friendly and very efficient team just works wonders. Today's meal was simply... More
