Description: Our Little Gem is a delightful country pub & restaurant that's full of charm, character and plenty of friendly faces. All are welcome in our bar area - even the beloved pooch! (Our doggy biscuit jar may be of interest to said pooch...) We have a stylish but cosy, two level dining room, a relaxed and informal bar area with a roaring log fire for the chilly months - and our lovely garden and terrace overlooking the village church is the perfect spot for those warmer days when the sun comes out to play. Everything on our menus is freshly made in our kitchen, including our ice creams and tasty chutneys. Our dishes change in line with the seasons and are made using the best local produce that we can get our hands on. In fact - If you think your veggies are top of the crops, then bring them along...we accept them as currency! (We're totally serious - Please ask) We're what you might call a 'proper pub', serving a selection of great real ales and lagers, alongside premium spirits and a good range of soft drinks and organic juices. Our wine list is carefully sourced (that bit was fun) and features boutique wineries - producing an exciting and individual list with many wines served by the glass. Planning a party? If you need that perfect spot to get some business done away from the office, or if you have something special to celebrate, please give us a call! We'll take all the hard work off your hands. Nearby, there are great walks in the beech woodlands of Common and Penn Woods, perfect for a visit to walk off one of our indulgent puds, or that Sunday roast. Whatever the occasion, if you're looking for a lovely spot to eat great food and catch up with friends and family, we think The OQH is just the place... We look forward to welcoming you soon! Tina (General Manager)

Most Fridays you will find me and Kate sat eating and drinking our way through the end of the week in the OQH. Snug, bar tables and a separate dining area upstairs means you can pick if you want a noisy or more intimate quieter meal. Menu is changed regularly with some staples always there (Bubble and Squeak, Sausage and Mash) all done well with locally sourced meat and veg, not sure how local the fish is! Tina is the Manager and runs a tight, friendly ship. It isnt cheap but nor would I say it is over priced. Now they have IPA on tap they have a decent pint to serve you! I would say the only time I have felt disappointed is when we tried their Sat morning brunch and I was stunned to find obviously cheap bread and ingredients served and the usual flair and quality missing.

This pub, and its sister pub in Marlow, The Royal Oak, are very good with clever twists on the food. The thing I like the most is how descriptive the menu is so you know exactly what you are getting. A little expensive but worth it and both these places fail to disappoint. It is also nice that you can have 2 starters instead of a starter and a main without feeling uncomfortable. Cracking wine list as well. Lovely Sunday lunch which we also bring guests to.

really wanted this place to live up to the pretty location and exterior, but came away thinking was not quite eoryh a return visit.
Food ok, but needs to be better for the money.
mixed company - some noisy people at the bar gave it a cheap feel.
shame.

We visited late on a sunny Sunday afternoon, and sat having drinks in the courtyard garden which is a real sun trap. Our table was booked for 5pm and we were under no pressure to rush our drinks, the building is steeped in history with original wooden beams, food was amazing, and the menu extensive. The roast dinner comes highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. The staff are friendly and attentive which made the experience all the more pleasant. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon/evening, to be repeated with family and friends in the near future.

We went to the Old Queens Head this week with some friends. The place was busy for midweek, must have been the St George effect!
The additional St George's menu was very good, and most of us ordered off that. The food was great. The staff were very efficient and good humoured, engaging with some lively banter.
All in all a great evening. The surroundings and the ambiance are very good. I would not hesitate to recomend the OQH for any gathering, friends or family.
