My partner & I stayed here for 1 night. The room was clean & tidy & nicely decorated. Had a good nights sleep though you can hear the traffic as it drives past which is a bit disruptive. I would recommend staying here though :)

We visited the Queens Head last year, we were 5 in number, had a great meal with good service. So we were confident that this year we would have another great stop over, this time we were 14 so phoned to make sure that they could cater for a big group, they were very helpful and friendly on the phone...

While on business in the area I needed a place to stay overnight at short notice in or around Saffron Walden . After discarding most of the characterless value chain hotels I settled on this pub because the profile said that it was warn and friendly with good pub food on offer . The cost was well under my company...

We stayed Friday, Saturday and Sunday mid December and thought it was a lovely inn full of character with friendly hosts and great breakfasts (even though tables weren't laid up) However our room was a huge disappointment. On arrival it wasn't ready at four o'clock in the afternoon and it was freezing. We were given three small bath towels which...

Went there for a works lunch. The menu is nice and varied and the food was good. They coped well with 22 at our table. Nice selection of beers and a lovely old pub. The Snug with an open fire is gorgeous.

We stayed overnight at the beginning of December after a visit to Cambridge and a planned day at Duxford The room was quite small but adequate for an overnight stay. The bed was comfortable and shower worked very well. Probably a little more attention could have been paid to the provision of toiletries as there was 4 conditioners, 2 shampoos...

We stayed here for 1 night whilst we visited the IWM at Duxford. The inn is a charming old coaching inn with beams, uneven floors, blazing fires and creaky floorboards. The inn is ran by Simon and his wife who are truly lovely people, accommodating, polite with a wicked sense of humor. We dined by the blazing log fire and...

Just returned from a night staying at the Queens Head. I was not looking forward to it as I'm generally not a pub person, but the overall experience has changed my opinion. Yes its old and creaky, but that's definitely part of its charm. The staff were fantastically accommodating, and I cannot fault their 1-1 approach. Felt like I was...

As a travelling engineer I visit many places all over the UK. I have recently been working in Saffron Walden and needed somewhere local to stay. I contacted the Queens head and found the staff very helpful indeed, after speaking to the landlady Claire my accommodation was sorted. Upon arrival I was greeted by friendly and helpful staff member Kim...
