We had an absolutely lovely family meal here for my mum's 80th birthday.

Felt really welcomed on arrival and the service throughout was so nice. They even put some decorations on the table when they found out it was a birthday.

Really good choice of dishes, for both starter and mains. Quite a few seafood choices if that's your thing. Also some good veggie choices. I had soup to begin which was really nice, and my steak was excellent.

The wine was good and reasonably priced. Real ale too for the beer drinkers. I think everyone left happy!

Overall, we were very happy and will hopefully be back. May even stay over next time!

Some of the restaurants shut on a Sunday night in winter, so we were relived to walk into the Queens Arms and be welcomed. The food was delicious and well presented, look at their menus online.
From the outside this place looks like an old pub, but is now a privately run hotel with a restaurant. As we did not stay there (wish we had), we cannot comment on the rooms. There were several diners, some of whom were residents, all seemed satisfied with the quality and ambience.

Many thanks for your complimentary review & thankfully your Sunday evening turned into an 'oasis in the sand' lol sorry my twisted humour! We are happy everything exceeded expectations & next time you are both in the area you could possibly reside with us.

From start to finish our experience at the Queens Head Hotel was very pleasurable indeed.
Gary, the owner, was extremley knowledgable on all aspects of the menu. We chose starters of Pan fried king scallops with a sun dried tomato tapanade topped with parmesan shavings and Smoked mackerel fishcakes served with honey creme fraiche both of which were delicious. The main of roasted venison served with a berry and port sauce was certainly the highlight of the evening although the pudding of rich amaretti coffee and mascapone tiramisu was like nothing I had tasted before.
On a Sunday evening in November there is no better place to enjoy top quality food with great service.

High praise indeed Yorkie! In truth not sure we deserve the praise because all we are doing is providing restaurant food without the pretentiousness & no extras added, character building with a contemporary feel & good service hopefully all combines to an enjoyable evening with us. The saying your 'only as good as your last meal' certainly bares some truth. Sincerely hope to see you return in the future & hopefully you both will have as just as an enjoyable time with us?

After spending the morning in Lindisfarne we looked for somewhere for a late lunch. Luckily we came across the Queens Head. Even though it was almost at the end of food service they couldn’t have been more accommodating for our large group including 2 (fussy) little ones and 2 dogs. The food was exceptional. A small menu but everything ordered was amazing and you could tell everything was home made. The chap serving was friendly and knowledgeable about not only the menu but the local area advising on places to visit etc. My only disappointment was we visited on our last day of our holiday so couldn’t visit all the recommended places or visit a second time.

Many thanks for your praise & compliments. I certainly remember you party coming on that lunch time & in truth it was a pleasure serving you all, shame you were returning home the following day. Nice to be called a chap that a surfer dude like people have called me in the past. Hope to see you all return in the future all being well. Many thanks again.

This was our first visit to Berwick and we took the advice of a local to visit The Queens Head for dinner. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, warm and welcoming. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Food was excellent, my husband had the venison casserole, my son had the lasagne and I had fish and chips, all three meals were faultless; my husband is particular about venison being cooked correctly and was more than pleased with his dish. The desserts we ordered were equally delicious and did not disappoint. Compared to similar establishments we have visited, we found The Queens Head to be good value for money. We have recommended others to visit if in the area and we would not hesitate to visit once again ourselves.

Many thanks Shona for your kind words & it is warming to know all of your family enjoyed all dishes served to you. Although we are No 1 on trip adivsor for restaurants in Berwick Upon Tweed which is a powerful tool recommendation & referrals play a big part in our business, this is by no means that we are complacent & continually look on how to improve our business.
Value for money varies form person to person but guessing that's what makes our profession so diverse? Let's hope to see you if you decide to return to the area.
