About the Pub

Has had a least two makeovers in last 10 years. Its current unique and opulent design makes The Old Queens Head a popular location for photo shoots and filming. The pub has wooden tables and stools, booths, leather settees and benches, tiling including a pewter topped tiled bar counter, carved stone fireplaces, lots of antlers (some on dead animals) and an ornate ceiling. Now has music or other events most days. See website for details. Reduced to one unused handpump.
