The Queen's Head is one of the best pubs in the UK. It hasn't been updated for over a hundred years and the beer is the best for miles. We enjoyed the Adnams bitter and the Broadside though the service was a bit on the...More

I'm reluctant to waste time on this review, I want to make them feel as valued as we felt during our visit, therefore it only requires three words....dirty, overrated, unwelcoming
