It's a bit like watching the England football team; you just know when everyone involved believes in what they are doing and gives it 100%. That is the feel you get at The Queen's Head. The result is a wonderful customer experience. Thank you Queen's...More

The Queens Head has a nice feel to it inside in the restaurant and also has a nice outdoor area to sit during the summer time. The food menu is quite standard for a pub but the food is always very fresh and well presented.
