Queens Head Inn at Kettlesing

Arrived a little after 12 having walked from Hampsthwaite - surprised to find almost full but no problem, table for two allocated at window, and order taken quickly and despite the crowd of other diners food arrived quickly too. The soup was heavenly! The Sicilian pinot grigio was also first class. We were very glad we'd planned our walk to target this pub.

Wonderful welcome, lovely clean room & very comfy bed. The food alone makes this place worth a visit. We only went for a couple of nights but wish we could've stayed longer. Definitely recommend the Queen's Head to anyone wanting a quiet break with great food & drink!

As it was my turn to organise a 'boys'' walking weekend, I wasn't sure how easy would be to get everyone (12) in the same place. It can be a bit of a struggle to get 5 or 6 twin rooms that aren't spread across different sites. However, this wasn't a problem at all at the Queen's Head. Louise couldn't have been more accommodating, turning what, I believe, are normally doubles into twins without any complaint whatsoever. The bedrooms were light and airy and with all the accoutrements you'd need (not that we stayed in them, really, other than to get changed and sleep).

That was just the start.

The breakfasts were something else: you could - seriously - afford not to eat for the rest of the day.

After Friday's and Saturday's very pleasant walks in wonderful countryside, coming back to the Queen's Head and being able to sit by a real fire with a couple of beers was superb. The evening meals were just right for this time of year and there was a good selection of wines (inc baby bottles of prosecco) and some good local draft beers (that we did comprehensively sample).

What really made it for me, though, was that both Louise and her daughter Megan were able to spend time with this group of middle-aged men and, on the Saturday night, allowed us access to the pub's music collection and PA. There was some serious 1980s' back catalogue played that night, with dancing to match (it defies imagination). It was a late, but wonderfully enjoyable, evening.

Bleary pairs of eyes and some sore heads arrived on Sunday morning; but with the memories of the previous night's jollities and a Queen's Head breakfast still fresh, they were soon banished (well, mostly). Mustn't forget Louise's husband, Glenn and the slightly more matur lady, both of whom sorted out us with our breakfasts. Everyone was very friendly and for whom nothing was too much trouble.

We were looked after fantastically well.

Would I recommend the Queen's Head? You bet!

Regular haunt due to lovely food - real home cooking and the Steakpie to die for! All the dishes are beautifully cooked real pub food. From lovely roasks to scampi and chips the food is excellent - not the chain ofr cheapo pub hammer it out! People don't like venturing off t5he A61 - its their loss!

The village is lovely food is great and the beer - well they serve Old Peculiar.

Decor wise its a quirky homely pub - landladys great and shows she enjoys running it.... been there years...

So real food real pub.... well woth the visit...

We were allowed to check in early in order to get ready for a wedding, and a taxi was arranged for us. The pub was still open when returned in the early hours and there was a very warm welcome home!
Breakfast was great the next day, we would definitely stay again if they would have us!

We loved our short stay at the Queens Head Inn. The pub is very cosy and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very large and comfortable with a modern bathroom. The open fire in the bar/dining area creates a lovely ambiance and was very welcome on a cold, wet evening. We had dinner at the pub and it was by far one of the best meals we have had during our travels The food was fresh and beautifully presented,with portions large enough to fill you up but not so large as to be daunting. There was a good variety of choices and also plenty of choice of wines to match. Breakfast the next morning was cooked to order and just as good as the dinner the night before. This hotel is definitely worth a visit for a weekend or break away.
