With a history dating back to the 15th century, The Queen’s Head is a traditional free house with log fires, a private dining room and riverside garden. Ales from Adnams are backed up by backed by Aspall cider and a wide-ranging choice of wines.The kitchen’s modern British approach produces starters such as blow-torched confit salmon; and crispy aromatic quail with sweet and sour tamarind. Scan the daily specials board for the likes of potted crab followed by pan-fried skate wing with caper beurre noisette.
