We enjoyed a late Sunday lunch at the Queens Head early May. Could not fault the service from 'booking to bill paying', everything went very well. Look out this special venue!

Had a brilliant meal here after mooring nearby on the canal. Walked up the hill to increase appetite. I had vegetarian fish and chips, which was the best I've had anywhere. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed what they chose. Highly recommended.
