Had a lovely meal here. The waitress/ hostess was a lovely lady. My partner has intolerance to chilli and capsicums, she was able to warn him off certain things and guide him to others. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Berwick as the food was delicious and they even gave me a recipe for part of the meal.

My husband and I decided to take a day trip from Paisley, we packed a bag and didn't know where we would end up. At 5pm on 2nd of March we found ourself in Berwick. As we hadn't booked in Advance we had to just turn up and ask if there was a room available. Lucky for us there was. Gary who was at the reception area when we arrived was very helpfull, he showed us the last available room which was room 3 and is a twin room . The room is perfect .It has modern decor , comfy beds , ensuite with toiletries, tea making facilities, biscuits, bottles of water, fruit , tv and free wifi and it was very very clean . There was nothing else anyone could need in my opinion bearing in mind that we turned up unexpectedly at 5pm on a sat.
We were leaving to go for a walk after we checked in and Gary told us that they were serving dinner if we would like a table . We decided to go out and see what was on offer. There were a few places that looked to have nice menus however roughly around 7.30pm we went back to the hotel to see if they could give us a table.. the restaurant was busy but luckily we managed to get a table . For the 2nd time we turned up unexpectedly. My husband had the venison stew and I had steak .Ive got to tell you that steak was one of the nicest I've ever had , it was absolutely perfect and I can't recommend it highly enough. My husband really enjoyed the stew and said he would definitely have it again. We shared a bottle of red wine with dinner which was also lovely, it was Red Faustino. We had actually planned to go back out after dinner however we were so well looked after and were very relaxed so we sat at the table and had a few more drinks .
The breakfast this morning was absolutely lovely as was the lady that took our order .
We didnt leave a tip at dinner as everything was added to our room tab however we left a good tip with the lady at reception when we checked out .
We would love to come back and plan to do so in the summer .
Thanks Gary and thanks to your colleagues also from the Harrisons

Wow many thanks for your very informative review Lyn & in truth no need but we do appreciate the kind comments. As mentioned in previous reviews we are just trying to offer a friendly, personal service with a relaxed, atmosphere but ensuring we provide continuity & consistency.
Passing trade seems to be a thing of the past as so many potential customers now book on line but thankfully we had a room available & you both thoroughly enjoyed your stay.
Let's hope we may see you both in the future but would recommend reserving & booking on line, Again we really appreciate your kind words.

What a great experience we had for our belated works Xmas party for a table of 25. Garry had hand written us a 3 course set menu to cater for everyone and delivered exceptional food and service.

Would highly recommend “The Queens Head” if you are after the best food, drink and attention to detail from a small professional/team.

Keep up the good work Garry and team, we will be booking every year as well as the majority of the team supporting this fine restaurant with their family and friends all year round.

Fantastic place!!

Kind words indeed Davey, not sure we deserve that sort of gratitude as we are only offering a service to ensure our guests are happy when they visit & leave more than content to either spread the word or return for more punishment. lol
Great to know all of you thoroughly enjoyed the evening & here;s hoping we see you next year if not before.

Decided to try this for a special treat for my wife. The food was good but very expensive. Nearly £70 for just the main course, sweets, 3 drinks and 2 coffees.
Food portions not overly big either.

Our usual place, The Castle and Magdalene fields golf club is half the above price for the same kind of food.
And much bigger portions at the Castle as well.

We may go back one day, but because of the prices only once in a blue moon.

Many thanks for your constructive comments Robb & please accept our apologies regarding your review mentioning that we were expensive. I would like to think although we have been here for 19 years generally looking back from previous comments & reviews customers mention what good value we offer considering our food is locally sourced but realise everyone has their own perception of' value for money'.
With regards to the pricing our active & upto date website displays the prices clearly as does the menu outside & the menu provide before your selection so customers know clearly what they are being charged for with no hidden extras like sides of vegetables etc.
Although I take your comments on board making comparisons to other eateries in the town, I am not being derogatory to them but these establishments have a different concept more towards price & quantity rather than quality & I think they would be the first to admit that as that's the market they are aiming for.
Looking at your other reviews you have posted on other places you certainly make your feelings known but I think myself & other establishments would prefer to know if their was an issue so we potentially have an opportunity to rectify the problem rather than saying nothing & posting it on |Trip Advisor.
