Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Queens Head

Stripped-out old pub retaining a fairly plain yet attractive façade, but now with sparse, modern furniture and decor within a 'L'-shaped layout inside. It looks, and is, just the sort of place where you would expect to find 'post-ironic' features such as table football and canned rather than bottled beer behind the counter. By now, you certainly won't be expecting any cask ale (so you won't be disappointed there...) but there was an interesting selection of craft keg beers in a wide variety of styles. I ended up going for the unusual Beavertown Goslar Dreamin' Rhubarb Gose (staggeringly expensive, like my modest lunch, but excellent quality in both respects). The fully opening front window doors were also a blessing on a very warm Spring day.

A rather industrial interior here with bare brick, corrugate steel to the rear, a parquet floor, benches and high chairs, industrial metal and steel tables and a young crowd. The pub doesn't have any urinals, just two cubicles which means that you might have to cross your legs at busy times.

I had a half of something crafty and overly cold, served in what looked like an oversized champagne flute and all for just £2.50!

This isn't my kind of place so I shan't be returning.

Closes at 9.00 pm on Saturdays and closed all day Sundays.

Quinno _ left this review about The Queens Head

Stripped-back craft keg boozer. Exposed brick side wall, bench seating with some button banquettes. Brew Dog paraphernalia (so 2013…). Board games ostentatiously displayed on top of banquettes. No cask, all keg from a fairly safe range of the usual suspects. My Brew Dog Hoppy Xmas was £2.90 a half and tasted as Xmassy as a tuna sandwich. Talking of sandwiches, their food menu was ludicrously priced, 8 quid for a sarnie. It's ok overall but in tune with so many craft bars it feels more like they want to fleece the punter as the primary aim. With a number of places within 10 mins offering a decent pint under 4 quid, why come here unless you want to burn your money like the KLF?
