We went to The Queens Head with a certain level of expectation. We were after a cosy, traditional ambience in which to enjoy wholesome, fresh food and fine beverages. Having never visited before, we were intrigued to see how this pub would stack up to our high expectations.

Immediately we were impressed by a wine list that helpfully graded options from lightest to full-bodied, streamlining our process of tipple-choosing. With that quickly decided, I went to town on my starter of goat's cheese bruschetta with a crisp green-leaf salad, while my partner enjoyed her classic prawn cocktail in a well-balanced Marie Rose sauce. She then tucked into a main of soft mince and leek dumplings with boiled baby potatoes and peas, while I tackled the Cajun chicken breast with homemade chips. I particularly enjoyed the level of spice applied to the meat, and the chips were chunky, fluffy and served piping hot.

To end, we split the soft, moist and oh-so-sweet toffee lumpy bumpy, after sharing a laugh with the staff about getting tongue-tied while ordering it. After such a fine meal, we decided that The Queens Head stacks up very well indeed.
