Due to lockdown we are only operating a TAKEAWAY SERVICE through November...
but it changes weekly and is full of restaurant-quality dishes to keep your tastebuds entertained, click here for menu

We are very enthusiastic about good food at The Queen’s Head.
All our dishes are freshly made, seasonal British classics with a twist and a lot of attention to detail.

We source as much as we possibly can from the farmers and producers around us.
The quality and freshness is amazing and the food miles are as low as possible.

We love making our own…we make all sorts of things in our kitchen, our sourdough, our chutneys, our beetroot ketchup. If we don’t make it for practical purposes – we haven’t mastered the brie quite yet – we find the best quality available – like Moving Mountains vegan products which are immensely popular.

Summer lunches. In the summer we have a lighter lunch menu with some amazing sharing platters to spend the afternoon grazing on with friends in our pretty, leafy garden.

Summer evenings. The evening menu is full of tasty classics with a few wild cards to explore. Linger out by the fire pit after dinner with a glass or two or an espresso or two as the daylight fades and we light the candles. The perfect ending to a long hot day.

When the nights start drawing in. In the Autumn and Winter we focus more on our large supply of local game and hearty dishes to warm you up when you come in from the cold. There are usually a couple of weekly specials on the board towards the weekends.

As it gets colder outside things start heating up in our kitchen! On Thursday to Saturday evenings in November we were offering a particular treat – a 5 course tasting menu full of delicious morsels for £37.50 a head. There was also a small wine flight of 3 glasses of wine specially chosen to compliment 3 of the courses. These were very popular and will probably be back in January, lockdowns permitting.

Our ‘Specials’ are really special!

Special purchases of luxury ingredients that suddenly become available in small quantities like a box of whole plaice or Cornish mussels, or short-seasoned ingredients like hand-foraged New Forest mushrooms. Our talented sous chef Dean, our puddingmaester, might pick a load of juicy blackberries on his way in to work in the morning and conjure up a lemon verbena, from our herb garden, and blackberry millefeuille for the weekend. Blink and you will miss them.

Our Facebook page is the best place to find what specials are on this week.

We love puddings! Regardless of the season our puddings are well worth saving room for. Made from scratch with love and boundless enthusiasm for the ingredients, sometimes they come and go by the week, or even the weekend.

We have reinvented our takeaway menu. We thought we would do things slightly differently for Lockdown II. We now offer a weekly changing menu of restaurant quality dishes designed to raise your spirits. 3 starters, 3 main courses and a few homemade puddings to bring a little luxury to lockdown dining. This is available from Wednesday to Saturday nights. In addition to this we still do an awesome fish & chips and real langoustine tail scampi & chips on Fridays only. Have a look and see what treats are on the menu this week. Ordering instructions are on the menu.

For special occasions we can serve up a perfectly grilled
T-bone or tomahawk steak with a variety of sauces; whole crab with garlic butter or lobster mayo; or a whole lobster thermidor – or with just garlic butter if you prefer.
We will need 48 hours notice for those.

Our landlord Paul is very proud of his cellar and is very particular about the quality of the pints we serve. We have a few popular resident ales, beers and ciders on tap, and guesting ales that change with the seasons. A lot of these are locally brewed, part of the fun of running a pub is discovering and offering an exciting new find or bringing back a popular local favourite for the summer or winter. Of course we are liberally supplied with all the usual spirits and stock a well chosen wine list. Paul is always happy to recommend a bottle to go with your chosen dishes and has a stash of treats behind the bar for after your delicious pudding.

We are a rural pub and muddy boots, wet dogs and children are very welcome. 
We are however an adult environment and supervision of the dogs and children
is greatly appreciated for everyone’s safety and enjoyment.

WE ARE FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES REGARDING COVID AND CORRECT SOCIAL DISTANCING PROCEDURES. THIS INCLUDES TABLE SERVICE, TRACK & TRACE AND REGULAR SANITISATION TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE. PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING FACE MASKS.
