Will Larter left this review about Queen Bess

A post-war estate pub, but this one is listed among ten of the best: https://heritagecalling.com/2018/05/...post-war-pubs/. It's a Sam Smiths pub with no real ale, and my half of Dark Mild was very cold and very frothy (not much chance of a top-up either). The pub itself is well-preserved, though not to museum standard as some of theirs can be. The chief glories are the bar counters and the large ballroom to the rear, which has a pool table and a snooker table too. (I've taken some interior photos, to save everyone else the trouble of going to Scunthorpe to see this gem!)
