“Great food, relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Food is well cooked and good value for quality and portion size. We went on two occasions, one was mid week and also on a Saturday. We were more than happy on both occasions. It's a pub environment and very relaxed. Staff are friendly and service is good, its a small pub with unpretentious service and down to earth service. Well worth it! There's also a lovely shop virtually next door, great for reasonably price locally made gifts and original art. Parking is easy either on the Forebury, virtually opposite or in bell street car park a three minute level walk away.

“Love it!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I've been to this pub a number of times, the beer garden/ courtyard is one of the best places to be on a sunny afternoon with friends/ family. The service is always really good and friendly and the food is amazing. On Sunday afternoon I had fish and chips, which was lovely. The chips are to die for and the fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. My friend had the burger which came with fresh salad, homemade coleslaw and onion rings and chips which looked delicious. The portion sizes are very generous and the meals are definitely not overpriced for fresh homemade food.
Will probably spend a few more sunny afternoons there over the summer!

“Have your Ploughman's lunch here”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Although a few minutes early for opening, I was welcomed into the Queen's Head and treated well. I had been in several pubs prior to this stop and had not found a Ploughman's Lunch on the menu. So it was a particular treat to find this enormous plate of food (enough for at least two persons--see photo). The staff were friendly and attentive and the atmosphere relaxed. Given the food and atmosphere, I skipped my intended train and stayed an extra hour to enjoy. Hope to be back.
