I took a foreign business colleague here for dinner because it is a lovely village and the Queens Head always looked appealing when passing.
The menu is quite small but this is fine if it is all seasonal and well cooked. Some of the dishes are way overpriced, scallops for £7.95 when all you get a two very small scallops is stretching it!
We ordered the steak with black pudding which was nicely cooked, but aside from mash it isn't served with any vegetables, strange!
What really annoyed me is it is a village pub/restaurant with one young lady serving, who did an OK job, but they have the audacity to automatically add a 10% service charge! This frustrates me because when you are in company it is not nice to start asking for it being taken off, and I am sure this is what they rely on, so I for one will not be returning because there are many other better establishments in the area, The Thomas Lord, The Hurdles, The Pub With No Name, who do not adopt this distasteful practice!
