'LES ROUTIERS' PUB OF THE YEAR 2008 and voted in the TOP 100 PUBS by 'EAT OUT MAGAZINE' - May 2009
Sitting right on the border between the lovely villages of Penn and Tylers Green in South Bucks, The Old Queens Head exudes bags of character and atmosphere. The gorgeous Dining Room, which was originally a barn, dates from 1666, the same year as the Great Fire of London; with several later additions, giving rise to lots of cosy corners, real fires and more changes in floor level than you can poke a stick at. There are great walks nearby in Common and Penn Woods, both of which are ancient beech woodlands that have changed little over the centuries.
Inside there is a world of choice. This is first and foremost a great pub, but with the space and flexibility to offer everything from a swift beer on the way home, a light bite when you can't be bothered to cook, to a fabulous dinner; special occasion or not. We've even got free WiFi for those business lunches that never seem to end!
Many hours have been well spent at local auctions finding lovely old furniture and pictures in keeping with the age of the pub. Warm heritage colours mix with glowing dark floorboards, flagstones, rugs and classic fabrics to give welcome relief on a cold winter's day. For the summer we've got a sunny terrace overlooking the village church of St Margaret's and a large garden to while away the hours in.
We've got a great mix of people to look after you with bags of experience under their belt. You can expect lots of laughs, great service and plenty of good old-fashioned hospitality. Our team love what they do and it shines through to ensure you always have a good time.
Then there's the food, which balances classic dishes with Modern British flair, resulting in a menu with something for all. We work hard at finding local suppliers and every dish starts with the very best fresh produce we can find.
Lovingly refurbished, The Old Queens Head is happy to find itself, once again, the heart of the community.
OPEN ALL DAY, EVERY DAY with FREE HELPINGS of WIFI with EVERY WORKING LUNCH or DINNER
