Inviting riverside inn with treats from the grill

Wines by the glass

Standing on the banks of the River Nene, The Queens Head is a delightful mellow stone inn with a relaxed vibe and a solid line in muscular modern cooking built on locally sourced ingredients. The 200-year-old hostelry still functions as a pub if you fancy a jar, but food drives the action these days, with a charcoal-fired Josper grill taking pride of place in the kitchen. If you're up for some serious meat action, the steaks are impeccably sourced, and even extend to a rib-eye of Wagyu beef. Otherwise, you might take on potted smoked mackerel followed by sea bass with ginger, chilli and soy.
