Tunworth Road, MAPLEDURWELL, RG25 2LU
This pub was a house belonging to shoemaker Joseph Phillips and his wife, Elizabeth, until Joseph turned the building into an inn called the Queen's Head. In the dining room, two bricks, one each side of the fireplace, are marked with the couple's initials and the date 1854. Acquiring its current name in 1973, it still displays much of its 19th-century origin through its low beams, flagstone floors and even an indoor well; outside, a large garden overlooks the north Hampshire countryside. Relax on a leather sofa with a pint of real ale, and choose your meal from the daily-changing menu and fish and game specials, starting maybe with moules marinière. Main courses to look out for are the slow-cooked game hotpot; oven-baked fish pie; and chargrilled pork, beer and watercress sausages with chive mash. Apple crumble, sticky toffee pudding, crème brûlée, chocolate brownies and a Hampshire cheeseboard are some of the desserts.
