We were given a weekend voucher for The Queens Head as a present. On arrival we were greeted and shown to our room very promptly and politely. At the booking stage I had asked for a room on the first floor as my partner has mobility problems and difficulty with stairs and we were already aware that there was no... More

Very old fashioned in appearance and yes in need of some facelifting in places, but cosy and good food. Room clean, plenty of space and storage. Some road noise as premises direct onto main road through village...but didn’t disturb us... More

Staff were very pleasant and helpful food was great and choice was good too, Room was warm and cosy and clean. Breakfast had a good selection and we wanted for nothing they used their own sausages made on the premises and the menu for evening meal was varied with extra specials added each night.

I am so sorry about the shower, the pump had gone and that's what was making all the noise, brand new shower in now. There is of course a bath also.
