Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had Sunday lunch at the pub today and 5 stars isn’t enough. The service was fantastic from Liam, Di and Sharon nothing was too much trouble even from a demanding table of 5 🤣 The food was absolutely delicious and such generous portions and the...dessert was just amazing! Leigh works so hard and the food reflects his dedication to a little gem of a pub. If you are looking for amazing food, great staff and a friendly atmosphere then look no further than the Queens Heads 🥰More

We didn’t plan to go here, but after deciding to go for a walk we ended up in Eye, saw the pub was open so decided to go in. What a great pub, the owners made us feel as welcome as their favourite regulars. It...has a really warm, friendly vibe and both me and my partner are thinking of returning soon. It would be great if we could duplicate the owners and have them run one of our pubs in Costessey.More

Amazing! The food was delicious, service was great, all the staff were very attentive - great festive atmosphere as you arrived. The owner also gave our table a complementary drink during our meal which was so lovely and thoughtful. Impeccable host and amazing food. We...all ordered pretty much of the Christmas Menu, all the starters - mains and desserts were delicious, very well presented and really reasonably priced. There was 11 of us in total, all our meals came out at the same time, the staff checked on us throughout the meal and offered to get us drinks and bring them to the table, considering how busy the pub was, we were all really impressed and really enjoyed our Christmas get together! All of us have planned to come back in the new year. Highly recommend. Thank you Queen head & merry Christmas! XMore

We visited the Queens Head with friends in a recommendation for Sunday lunch, and did not disappoint! Wow what a roast, absolutely perfection. Would recommend to anyone, but would also say skip Breakfast.

Had an excellent Sunday roast here. And then the dessert was homemade and to die for. Wish we had one each instead of sharing! Fantastic service throughout and such a lovely pub. Would highly recommend!

Great pub. Five of us turned up unannounced, late lunchtime on Monday (today). Was told they didn't do food on Monday. As we were leaving, we were approached and asked what we were looking for in the way of food. We only needed a sandwich....We were invited back in and served with some lovely sandwiches and bowls of chips. So grateful and much appreciated.More

Rang up the pub and said we would be there between 7.30 and 7.45. Got there at 7.50 and was told the kitchen was closed. Even though their website states the kitchen closes at 8pm. WILL NOT BE BACK

We needed to book a function room in Eye for my Mother’s wake. This was on a Monday when the pub is not normally open and they made special arrangements to open for us and our small group. Everything was seamless from booking onwards. On...the day the buffet was home cooked, plentiful and delicious. Service was spot on and all at a reasonable cost. I appreciate everyone at the Queens Head making a sad day more bearable. I look forward to visiting again on happier occasionMore
