The Queen's Head is an old pub with rooms. The bar and restaurant area is all beams and open fires, very comfortable. The staff are very hard working and friendly and the food is excellent. Our bedroom was very nicely appointed and the bed very comfortable but it was very small and looked out onto the rubbish bins which might...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the queens head on the 6/3/17 for one night. We stayed in room 9. The room was decorated nicely and was very clean. Bathroom was modern, the bed was comfortable and the room also had tea/coffee facilities. There was also a flat tv on the wall. Went for evening meal and the food was...

Upon arriving we were told we had been upgraded to a superior room. Room was extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. All staff were so friendly. Breakfast was great, continental table and then a hot breakfast to order. The pub itself is very cosy with a warm and friendly atmosphere. We had an evening meal which was delicious.

We had booked an evening meal and were so pleased with the food we went back the following evening. Surroundings were cosy, service was impeccable and the food was lovely. My first taste of quail and really enjoyed it. Can't wait to go back

Stayed in the family room for a last minute break. Room wonderful, staff extremely attentive, friendly and conscientious and food delicious (in particular the stunning breakfast which was included in the price of our room). Looking forward to a return visit in summer when we hope the weather will be a little kinder.

Another fantastic stay at The Queens. THis place is so relaxing. Rooms are spotless, comfy and warm. Breakfast is perfect and the lady serving breakfast (think her name was Vanessa) was lovely and nothing too much trouble for her. We had dinner in the Queens also which was also perfect. Can't wait to return. Thank you.

What a charming location for this beautiful hotel. My sister in-law and I had a very enjoyable weekend. Our room was delightful with a superb bathroom. The staff were very welcoming and we were offered a wide variety of dishes at breakfast including a glass of prosecco. The food was well presented and very tasty. I would definitely recommend The...

We have stayed here a few times previously, the last time being in 2009 but the place hasn't changed one bit apart from the rooms being very tastefully refurbished. It is still a lovely hotel with welcoming staff. Breakfast was excellent, the only downside was that the evening menu was nowhere near as extensive as on previous occasions - apart...

We stayed at the queens for the three night New Years celebration package. The food throughout was tasty and very well presented, even though every night was extremely busy. But what made our weekend unforgettable was the fist class staff, they are a shinning beacon to the much maligned British service industry. The previous poor comments seem to be about...
