Lovely pub food. Nice village and surroundings and staff friendly.

Only downside is that they do a delicious steak pie then smother with gravy. Would have been nicer to get a little jug of gravy on the side :-)

Would definately go again.

I had eaten here before and was really looking forward to a great meal. I wasn't disappointed, the sea bass with sweet chilli sauce was outstanding. Lovely cosy surroundings and excellent service too. Can't wait to be back again.

Well done guys, you are future-proofing your business by providing EV charging for your customers We came across your wonderful cosy little pub while we were looking for somewhere to charge our EV while we were in the area. Not not only did that work superbly well but we weren't disappointed by the rest of your offering either, thank you.

The pub is traditional and cosy and the Sunday lunch that we had was lovely home-cooked food. Not pretentious at all but just a really nice tasty lunch. The pub is open all day for food on Sundays which suited us down to the ground.

The staff were chatty, friendly and welcoming.

Will defo be back.

NB: For EV users there are 2 Tesla chargers, 1 x 22kw charger and 1 x 7kw charger. Free to use if you are staying at the pub or eating, just ask at the bar.

Called in here mid-week with a party of 17 seniors, we walk for two or 3 miles and then have a reasonable lunch. This excellent pub is in a tiny hamlet a few miles from Harrogate - we had told them we were coming but they did not need us to order the food in advance. Nevertheless, the meals all arrived very promptly and together, and were of high quality given the pub's location - that is it does seemingly depend on people arriving by car rather than neighbouring residents. And with the exception of a steak dish, prices booked very good value indeed. The service was professional, and everybody in the party was most impressed the organiser's choice.

Room Tip: We only came for lunch, not for a stay.

We visited the Queens Head on the way to Pately Bridge one Sunday for lunch. It is an "old school" pub - i.e. no chrome and leather seating here, but that is not a bad thing. The food was good. My Sunday lunch was well received.
My one thought as I left was when did a Sunday lunch start costing £10-12? My food was fine, and the price seems to be the going rate (which would be what most pubs would say), but should it cost that much?

Stayed here again as a team for 2 nights for a conference at Harrogate. It's out of the way in the countryside, but only 10mins into Harrogate. Very pretty setting, very friendly / welcoming, good pub food & beer. Breakfasts made to order and very good and hot. Limited phone signal, but WiFi OK. Rooms spacious and clean. Good value.
Will be back next year.

The Queens Head Inn was recommended by a neighbour when I was looking to take my dearly beloved out to celebrate her birthday. Amazing. Just what you look for in a country Inn, roaring log fire, and and very friendly reception at the bar.
The menu was as expected but the food, excellent. She had the salmon and said it was one of the finest she'd had. I had the lamb shank with red wine sauce, delicious,
