Visited the Queens Head for a Sunday lunch. Beginning of October out walking out 3 dogs called into the Queens Head on the off chance we could get a table were made to feel very welcome including our 3 cockapoos's. We had a table just round to the right as you enter and can honestly say everything was great we opted for a 3 course meal with Sunday roast and enjoyed it all, service, quality and how welcome the dogs were.
Highly recommend for quality and being friendly
With be back soon

Many thanks for your complimentary review mickwendy. It must be welcoming from a customers perspective that you can relax eat & enjoy in a nice restaurant with the dogs without the worry & the usual not so dog friendly attitude. Although we offer dog treats, in truth the market is so competitive these days you have to be able to cater for all customers requirements & this I think we achieve but by no means are we complacent as we are always looking on how we can improve certain aspects in our trade.
Hope to see you both in the not too distant future.

Stopped here for dinner and it was brilliant. Fillet steak one of the best I have eaten. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Many thanks for your complimentary review, although brief 'is to the point'. It is great to know your beef was one of the best you have tasted, in truth its not just about the cooking of the beef. We buy full fillets & trim them up accordingly. As service starts the meat is left out at room temperature which is an important process part of cooking, followed by sealing the meat & leaving the meat to rest before serving to customers. Although I have mentioned this process briefly it's pivotal part of having a god piece of meat without the normally allocated steak knife. Maybe I am waffling on a bit but I am still passionate about my business.
Sincerely hope to see you in the future if you decide to return to our beautiful area.

My wife and I recently visited the Queen's Head for lunch. We don't live in the area but had been there previously and always enjoyed the food & ambience. On this occasion, a rather unpropitious October Monday, we were warmly greeted by the front of house, whose name we failed to get, but she was so friendly and attentive we definitely should have done so in order to give her a mention by name. The menu was good and our food excellent and inexpensive, and complimented by the perfect timing of the arrival of each course. A must if you are in Berwick or its environ.

Many thanks for your kind words & the saying 'you are only as good as your staff' certainly bares some truth. We seemed to have ticked all the boxes on your visit with us & I can understand everyone has their own perception 'of value for money' as we are not the cheapest or the most expensive in the town but in truth it's the whole package of atmosphere, service & food which needs to be taken into consideration. The price is 'what it is' including complimentary breads & vegetables with no extra sides added.
Again many thanks for your kind words & hope to see you in the future.

My wife and I ate here last Saturday and enjoyed the most superb meal. The staff were attentive, friendly and the owners should be very proud of the team in the kitchen presenting delicious, perfectly cooked food. We both had a plate of scallops to start followed by halibut with a mussel risotto. Outstanding. I hope you enjoy the experience as much as we did. Thank you.

Christopher your review is appreciated & I will certainly pass on your thanks to all staff involved. Although we have owned the Queens Head for 17 years thankfully in this time we have managed to retain many of our team which is great. Regulars certainly like to recognise staff faces as they build up a rapport & continuity is an important factor in running a business.
Your review mentioned that you both had scallops followed by halibut. Again as mentioned in our previous management response suppliers can deliver fresh produce 'seven days per week' & our halibut we get is wild halibut with the size varying from 11kg up to 40kg & this providing chunky fillets rather than farmed flat fillets which are tasteless. Maybe that is just my opinion?
Sincerely hope all other customers in the future have just as much enjoyment as yourselves?

Visited this restaurant a few times and always had a wonderful meal. Extensive menu for lunches, dinners and meals. Lots of local meals with seafood a speciality. Selection off draught beers at reasonable prices
Would certainly recommend for evening dining for to our larger numbers.

Thanking you for your complimentary review headdolphin & upon reading your review you have dined with us & enjoyed on all occasions. I can only assume you a gluten for punishment lol.
On a serious note though the size of the menu depends on the time of year as they vary significantly & our aim ids to always use fresh local produce. In all honesty there is no excuse not being able to offer fresh produce as demands these days local suppliers offer seven day service. This being part of the 'knock on effect' to provide customers with what they expect & demands are so much higher these days as well as competition.
May see you in the future all being well?
