“Great food but can't stand the lay out!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

I love the food, service is grand but the lay out frustrates me. Not the most comfortable place to sit and relax.
It's not my cup of tea but may be somebody else's. I'd simply go for a quick bite and then onto somewhere else.

“Wow - one of the best pubs I have ever visited!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The Queens Head is located in Old Chesham, a few minutes' stroll from the town centre and the most northerly station on the London Underground.

This wonderful, historic public house has a great homely feel as soon as you walk in the front door - several small inter-locking bars, roaring fire, friendly bar staff and a great range of real ales!

In addition, the pub offers fantastic Thai and English cuisine at very reasonable prices - I would particularly recommend the Steak & Ale Pie.

Miss this gem at your peril!!

“Good (and quick) Thai food”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We are very fortunate that The Queen's Head is within walking distance for us. We visit it many times but, being close, never thought about doing a review!

It is a 'proper' pub with mainly Fullers on tap but a good selection of beers and lagers. Can get busy at times but adds to the atmosphere.

For eating, you can either eat in the pub or upstairs in the Thai restaurant. Booking for the latter recommended but the menu for both is essentially the same. They have a small traditional pub choice at lunchtimes.The service is phenomenal! There have been times when our order is in front of us soon after having sat down!

The upstairs is nicely themed and the service, once again, is friendly and efficient. The soups are particularly good and there are always specials on the board. A drink service is also available which is fetched from the bar.

As previously mentioned, the outside area and the area under the arch/footpath seems to be exclusively for smokers but not a huge problem unless it's very crowded.

To summarize - would fully recommend!

“Good Thai food”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Eat here early one evening. Good quality Thai food in a pleasant atmosphere. The pub down stairs looked good too, although did not have time to have a beer.

“Good thai food”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I have visited the Queens head for its lovely Thai food many times. The food is always freshly cooked and the portions generous. The menu is good and I have never been disappointed. It is also useful to know that if you prefer a restaurant setting there is a restaurant open in the evening that is separate from the pub.
