See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This village local is one of only a handful of pubs to have appeared in every edition of the Good Beer Guide. The list of landlords since 1729 has just 18 entries with the names displayed on the wall in the simply furnished but timeless public bar which includes an upright piano. The cosy lounge has a welcoming fire in the colder months. Back in the public, the stuffed goose in the case above the bar is Belinda who used to patrol the car park. There is a small roadside area at the front with a few tables. The Queen's Head is listed in the National Inventory as having a historic pub interior of regional importance. Simple but excellent food centres on soup and sandwiches. Monthly Saturday Supperclub. Sunday roasts alternate weeks. Gourmet food vans visit each Wednesday. Ales are served direct from casks on a stillage behind the bar. Guest beers often include an Adnams seasonal and an ale from a smaller brewery. The King and Kaiser are reputed to have stopped here for a pint in the early 1900s.
