“Queen's Head Restaurant”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Choice of eating places in Rothbury is limited but this was an acceptable find. Very pleasant staff and very acceptable food.The battered fish was very good value from a choice of five /six mains.we did not stay in the hotel so cannot comment on the other hotel facilities.

Drove up to Northumberland without booking a place. Turned up at the Turks Head in Rothbury and as it was my Fiancee's birthday we fancied a few drinks but when asked about rooms they did not have any available but she had rang the Queens Head and they had rooms. Was really nice of her. Turned up at the Queens Head ( Just down the road ) and was warmly welcomed and felt straight at home. Rooms were good. Had a great meal in the restaurant. Morning breakfast was one of the best full english i have ever had. Fiancee got a candle in her tomato to celebrate her birthday. Summed up the place. Brilliant. Highly recommend.

Had a lovely drive through the Northumbrian countryside today & stopped off in Rothbury for a spot of lunch, it was a snowy day and not many of the cafe's etc were particularly inspiring however we then found the Queens Head. Staff were very warm, friendly and courteous, the menu had something for everyone, my husband had the bowl of chill & I had a hot sandwich with chips, both very delicious, a lunch for two with soft drinks under £15 was excellent value, would definitely recommend, thank you

This is the 2nd visit to the queens. Again the food was outstanding, the staff lovely and the atmosphere great.
Our night away was spoilt due to the fact our neighbour in room 23 smoked in their non smoking room, which resulted in our room having a strong smoke smell all night!
Not nice :(

we recently stayed at the Queens Head with friends, and found the hotel rooms immaculate and clean, the restaurant food was of very good standard and very reasonably priced. I dont think we would hesitate in staying here, and as we had such a good time, it could become a regular visit.

Best pie ever. According to my partner. I had fillet steak with blue cheese and blue cheese sauce. My only criticism being my blue cheese sauce was served as a peppercorn sauce. Not being the type to complain I ate it despite the error. Steak was cooked beautifully. Nice seating area with plenty of space between tables. Overall nice atmosphere and a pleasant evening. With excellent food.

We've visited the Queens for food several times over the past couple of years (mainly lunch but occasionally dinner) and have never been disappointed.

Lunch is usually served in the bar, a traditional country pub layout, other than on Sundays or bank holidays when the restaurant is also open. The menu is varied and most items are reasonably priced. The Sausage (sourced from a local award winning butcher) is especially good whilst the Sea-Bass served with ginger and stiry-fried vegetables is a very tasty 'healthy' option.

Service is always good, expect to wait maybe fifteen minutes for your food, maybe a little longer if the kitchen is very busy.

A lighter menu is available for lunch (sandwiches / baked potatoes etc), and a carvery served on a Sunday.

If you are in Rothbury and looking for some good pub food, then look no further.
