“a really lovely gastro pub”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I enjoyed a lovely dinner here over the May bank holiday weekend. Booking was important, but I could pretty much choose a time to dine. The two dining areas were large, but the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Excellent young serving staff; they really knew their stuff re wine suggestions and helpfulness generally. Top marks, too, for the food which, although slow to emerge, was interesting, delicious and worth waiting for. Yes, I thoroughy recommend the Queen and would return.

“The most outstanding country pub and restaraunt”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I visited the Dennington Queen on 2 separate occasions for dinner whilst staying for a short break in the local area. The food, beer and wine and the service were all superb and exceeded all expectations. The standard by which all competitors should be judged. Worth buying the house for sale on the green just to be able to visit the best pub in the area!

“Lunch was ok.............”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I visited the Dennington Queen for lunch with a family member last week. I had the chicken goujons which didnt have much flavour and a blue cheese dip which didnt taste much of blue cheese. My pudding was much nicer. Ginger sponge with a lemon sherbert ice cream. The lunch was ok. Nothing spectacular. I was somewhat disapointed as friends who have eaten there before have raved about it.

“Great Country Pub”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Stopped in here at lunchtime on our way to the coast for a Saturday outing. Although quiet for a Saturday lunchtime there were a few other customers around. We all (me + wife + 14/12 yr old girls) decided to go for ciabattas which were all really enjoyable. They come served on little wooden trays with some salad and parsnip crisps. We also all had chunky chips which were marvellous and a portion of beer battered onion rings which were to die for. Main courses looked very appetising and no doubt we will pay a vist for dinner some time - maybe on way back from another Suffolk coast outing.
Service was very pleasant and we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
Definitely recommended.
