The Queens Head

The Street, BRANDESTON, Woodbridge, IP13 7AD

Created from four cottages and first opened in 1811, this smart pub stands slightly off the beaten track deep in peaceful Suffolk countryside. A detour is well worthwhile to sample one of the cracking Southwold ales, or a freshly prepared meal. Outside is a well-furnished summer garden, while inside the warm and richly coloured decor complements the traditional homely features of wood panelling, quarry-tiled floors and open log fires. The modern British menu, described as 'pub food with a twist', is based on local produce where possible, and bristles with interest. How often do you come across fricassée of golden beetroot, pak choi, russet apples and parmesan cream? Or mushroom raviolo, braised oxtail, pickled mushrooms and shallot purée? Sunday lunches are always popular and family-based events are organised throughout the year, including barbecues in the garden and a beer festival in June to coincide with the village fête.
