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.

Went here for lunch and was delighted to find no less than six vegan main options! This pub is very popular with locals and visitors alike and is in a great location for spending time in the New Forest. The fire was roaring and the atmosphere was friendly and busy. Staff very helpful. If you're looking for a relaxed, informal time with a good range of vegan choices at very reasonable prices then you can't do much better.

Popped in for lunch expecting the usual tired offerings of goats cheese or risotto as vegetarian food options. Really very pleasantly surprised to find a dedicated board of vegetarian/vegan meals. The aubergine gratin was very good served with warm toasted focaccia and a fresh salad. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend it.

Visited after a walk in the forest. A bit dingy inside but served a decent pint and our food order was prompt, although it was quiet being a Monday.
My wife's scampi was better than average, and my burger was also better than a lot of pubs, a good choice of food and there were some offers which would bring the price down considerably if the dishes offered suit.
Part of Old English Inn group of hotels and pubs, their food does seem better than some chains or individual pubs, but not a place for a special occasion.
