Queen's Head  

A traditional village pub from the outside on the edge of the junction that heads into the village centre. The beer garden is beyond the car park on an elongated triangle. This road can be quiet and then busy, so keep hold of your kids, though they are allowed into the pub at lunchtimes as there is food. The present landlord is amenable to letting them in, especially at weekends. Once inside you are faced by the bar, a small L shape of dark-ish wood. Look at the ceiling behind the bar as it covered with pump clips from guest ales. They usually serve three guests - on this occasion Blindman Black Lab Porter, Cottage Old Ken and Hampshire Ironside. All were well kept without sparklers. Food is served lunchtimes only and is good wholesome pub style food with a vegetation option or two and there is also a specials board. Prices were keen and represent good value for the portions you get. A Sunday roast is also available. The decor is very village local with a red tiled bar floor - other areas have old worn carpet. Tables are a mixture of old kitchen tables and narrow sturdy ones. Chairs, other than some high stools at the bar, are old wagon backed ones. The low ceilings have beams, but not for affect, these are real. On the walls are posters and picture frames. A piano takes up one wall and was covered on this visit by the darts cups won by the pub. There is a real fireplace for the winter and a room off the bar has a dartboard and pool table for all weathers. There is also a room for eating and sitting at tables to drink. The ceiling here is open to the eaves. A local?s pub, you can catch up with gossip - like the possibility of a new brewery out back. Toilets are by the front door. Access for the disabled is ok, though wheelchair negotiation will need tactfulness. A welcoming pub, I would certainly be back.
