Nick Davies left this review about Queen's Head

It's alright is this, an erstwhile roadhouse on a road now doubly bypassed. As JAQPTIO alludes little has changed since at least the seventies, but all the better for that. It was fairly busy even on a midweek afternoon, we sat on the sunny picnic tables out the front, but there are various tents and whathaveyou behind. Bass seems a fixture, we had a drink of the Otter guest which was a nice drink.

There appears to be a curry house arrangement in the evenings, I didn't figure out the setup, but anyway, the best of the three pubs in Meriden, that's if it's a pub you're after rather than something with fancier ideas.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Queen's Head

Traditional pub on the old road between Birmingham and Coventry on the eastern edge of the 'middle of England'. Partly opened-out inside to leave three distinct seating areas with the bar in the centre, a lounge at one end and a dartboard at the other. Plainly furnished and decorated, and frankly looking like it's seen better days. Still, there are four handpumps on the counter, offering M&B Brew XI, Bass (£3.70, and in good form), Adnams Freewheel and Rev James.

Bit of a gem this one.... you'd think the fact its on a superceded road to nowhere would affect trade but it was very busy.

Four ales on - including Bass in fine condition. No nonsense sandwich menu. Great value for money.

Loved it.
