Booking process worked well. Waiting staff were helpful. Food arrived hot. The Chicken, Ham & Leek pie was great. Prices were reasonable. Just what a modern pub meal should be like. Great experience!

We have been patrons of this pub/ restaurant for many years. I am sorry to say the standard of food and service has declined. Problem exacerbated by smelly dogs on a nearby table.
Is this a restaurant or a pub? If its a pub then provide more access to the bar area. If a restaurant ban dogs

Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback on your recent visit to The Queens Head.

I'm sorry that you feel we have gone downhill. I can assure you that myself, the head chef and all of the team are working very hard to ensure that we offer high levels of food and service at all times.

As many pubs these days we advertise as being dog friendly, we do allow dogs in just one of the rooms in the pub as well as the outside dining area. We are always happy to move people out of this dining area if anyone is uncomfortable.

We do hope you visit us again and trust that any future visits will be more enjoyable.

Kind regards

We went to celebrate a friends birthday and had an extremely pleasurable evening. the hot weather helped considerably as we ate outside well past sunset.
The car park accommodates a good number of cars too.
Service was very good and the menu was a varied choice.
I had the pie and would recommend it, a proper pie with great veg and thick chips.
Its a restaurant more than a pub these days but it also promotes a dog friendly provision so may be also worth a revisit one lunchtime.
Reasonably priced meal and drinks for the 4 of us and a good wine selection.

We went there for a late Sunday lunch at around 7pm. Thought it might be very busy, which it was but managed to get a table outside. Lovely welcome from the staff who sat us and very quickly got us some drinks as it was very hot. Food was served quickly and was delicious. Possibly the best roast beef I've had in a long time. The staff fussed over our two dogs and brought them water and biscuits.Its these little touches that make an outing special. A special mention for our Australian waitress who was wonderful. Good luck being a vet back in Aus.

Visited for a meal on a Saturday evening. We were greeted at the bar by the manager and were offered drinks which we took outside to enjoy on the sunny patio. When it came time to eat we ordered the charcuterie sharing board to share as we could not decide between the individual starters. For mains I had the chicken and leek pie with delicous chunky chips, vegetables and gravy while my partner enjoyed his steak, which was cooked to perfection. Left no room for pudding but i will definitely go back to try the apple and toffee eton mess!!
Lovely place, great service, buzzing atmosphere - what more do you need?
