Description: The Queens Head is situated some six miles from the nearest town in the very picturesque village of Burley, on the edge of the New Forest. We are a country pub with country ways attracting clientele who enjoy seeing the wildlife and variety of animals in the surrounding fields. These include deer, ponies, cows and donkeys. The pub dates back to 1645 and is rumoured to be an old smugglers haunt. This was reinforced when, during a refurbishment, treasures like old pistols, coins and bottles were uncovered here. There is also an alleged underground tunnel running between Burley Manor public house and this one. The front of the building has never been changed and inside has retained original features from at least 100 years ago. With alcoves, nooks and crannies, you can hide away and enjoy a quiet drink or meal. Meals can be enjoyed in the restaurant or outside in the garden during the summer months. This is a lovely old pub frequented by really friendly local characters and passers by alike.

I eat here from time to time and the food is very good. They have a great vegetarian menu and it also has a very cosy atmosphere. Service is generally very good.

We pre booked a group of four that weekend and had a great time. The service was good considering they were very busy and the food was great. Wholesome lunch and good value. It's a shame that others have had a lesser experience as I will be definately going back and took this as a recomendation.

I can understand why some customers were disappointed by the long wait but it is a very busy visitor area and a nice sunny Sunday will bring in more demand for the village establishments. We booked a table because we had a dog with us. The pub is quite big inside and perhaps the table layout is not ideal but then, if we wanted fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere we would have chosen a different venue. As it was, I agree that it was very busy and a bit cramped as well as noisy because of the numerous children (we've been there) but the vegetarian Sunday roasts were very good and so were the Haddock, Chips and Peas. As we went early, we didn't have to wait that long for our food. We'll go there again.
