Komakino . left this review about The Queens Head

A small, two-roomed village boozer located on an S-bend in the middle of Tebworth village, which according to the signage outside is at threat of closure due to Charles Wells wanting to sell up. The front entrance brings you into a small, square-shaped tiled floor room with small bar counter facing, a fireplace to the right, a dartboard on the wall to the left of the bar itself and three arches to the left housing a narrow strip of room, and used to store old tables, chairs and A-boards. On the bar there were four separate charity boxes along with several A4 posters on the walls donating either upcoming or previous charity events as well as totals of monies raised. A door to the right on entry, signed 'Bar' leads to a longer, thinner room, which runs at a right-angle to the other room, carpeted, and served by its own separate bar to the left and which had a handful of good-natured locals in attendance on a lazy March Sunday afternoon. The solitary pump clip offered CW Eagle IPA, but the amiable barman, who talked me through the story of their current Sword of Damocles, explained that they had two Young's beers - Burning Gold and Special available from the barrel in the cellar, so a half of the latter it was (albeit served in a hi-ball glass). It's a tired old building that's seen better days (the landlord himself is in his 80s, and made a friendly appearance before I departed) and could do with a bit more TLC but part of me wishes them well (they've already secured it as an ACV), and I hope this place hangs on.
