“My favourite in area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Queens Head is a rare find of a great pub that has real atmosphere and good beer with Thai food that is hard to beat. If you want a beautifully manicured restaurant then do not come her but if you want great Thai food then only the Tamarind Cafe in Ricky is a match. Love going to the Queens Head with friends or with wife and if you don't know QH is there then it is not an obvious venue in Chasham. Try the banana fritters if you do eat Thai - they are a great way to finish a lovely evening.

“Still a gem...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Tucked away on the outskirts of Chesham is this absolute gem.

A traditional pub atmosphere with a selection of real ales that serves first class Thai food at very reasonable prices.

Stay down stairs to enjoy the regular pub environment while eating at cosy ( = small) corner tables or head upstairs for more seating in the restaurant.

Either way the food is excellent and authentic!

“Excellent Thai food @ Fine Beers.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Been using this pub for the last 28 years & although I'm not so much of a regular as I used to be I can say that it has consistently been one of the best places for a good atmosphere & beer in this area.
For a number of years now the pub has served Thai meals ( Have'nt tried other types of food so can't offer an opinion on that ).They are always served quickly & are absolutely fresh & non oily & the rice steamed to perfection.
Always a pleasure to visit this pub with it's cosy , traditional bars, open fires & efficient staff & of course, great beers. Only drawback, if you can call it that, is that is very popular ( justifiably )

“An Aromatic Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Queen's Head is a charming 18th century public house in Buckinghamshire located in a beautiful setting at 120 Church Street opposite St Mary's Church in Old Chesham.
Quietly tucked away from the centre of Chesham, this traditional country pub and bar is on the ground floor with the impressive Thai restaurant upstairs via its own separate entrance.
Walk up the stairs to the smartly furnished restaurant and you will experience a warm and welcoming feel to the attractive half-timbered high ceiling dining room. Friendly Thai staff provide an attentive service and the delicious cuisine is of high quality both in preparation and presentation, produced at reasonable prices, particularly for this high quality level of dining. The restaurant is popular and busy, therefore bookings are essential particularly at weekends when 2 hour bookings are taken at specific times.
There is a car park on site, but better still on a summer evening, park close by at Water Meadow and walk along a pathway crossing a small bridge over a passing stream, absolutely perfect!
An ideal venue for adult family and friends to enjoy a quality evening outing, highly recommended for repeat visits.

“Surprise Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Found this through Tripadvisor,. Great pub, great prices, great service, good pub beer as promised but very surprised to find the restaurant was Thai! Forunately the four of us like Thai food, ( had it been Chinese I wouldn't have stayed, but that is a personal preference.) My husnband had mild, which was fine for him, my friend's husband not only had hot but ate the hot chillies as well!!
Would go to the beautiful Olde Englishe pub again for beer, would visit the restaurant if I was in the mood fot Thai food.
Please mention the Thai on your website!!!!
