    The service was friendly and efficient. We had the Sunday dinner and everything was good apart from the roast potatoes which felt over-cooked

    Lovely country pub, comfortable surounding. Tables in restaurant not crowded and quite private. We both had fish and chips which was lovely. Nice light batter and not too greasy. The peas though were very odd. Tasted very very sweet, too much sugar for my liking but otherwise meal was lovely.

    We have attended The Queens numerous times but there appears to be another change of management which has impacted upon the standard of food and service. Unfortunately, our recent visit will be our last visit. Food was below par, ambience was poor and the lady that served us did not appear welcoming and struggled to smile. Such a shame, very beautiful pub in a rural area.

    The Queens at HortonResponded on September 20, 2022I am sorry you feel this way, the ambience was quite mellow with it being the Queens funeral we did not feel it appropriate to have upbeat music playing. We pride ourselves on our customer service & don't feel that the staff would have "struggled to smile". Management & chefs have remained the same for the last 12 months. Had you mentioned any of this on your visit we would have tried our best to rectify it, unfortunately there is not much we can do after the fact & with an anonymous review.

    I had a roast beef dinner. The potatoes seemed frozen not fresh. The veg was undercooked. It lacked seasoning and was overall quite tasteless. The cauliflower cheese had little to none of the cheese sauce. The service was good.

    The Queens at HortonResponded on September 20, 2022Thank you for your feedback. Had you mentioned any of this to us at the time we would have happily rectified this for you with no questions. Unfortunately, it is difficult for us to solve issues when we are unaware of them. The potatoes & vegetables are fresh, we do not serve frozen food.

    Birthday meal There were no customers when we arrived for our meal, young man serving was very polite and friendly, a balloon and birthday banner were prepared on the table. Starter served very quickly and was very nice , we had to wait for an hour for our main course, gammon inedible as was far too salty and plate swimming in fat ! For dessert I had to go find the server and asked to hurry with dessert as we had been waiting so long, dessert was delightful best part of meal . I paid £61 for the meal which was not worth it. In a nutshell, we won’t be going there again !

    The Queens at HortonResponded on September 20, 2022Checking the system, it seems you waited 20 minutes for your mains.You mentioned that the gammon was too salty for your liking, unfortunately,gammon is notoriously salty and no additional salt was added to your dish as per your request.The other member of your party didn't mention any complaints regarding her meal.I'm sorry if you felt your dessert order wasn't taken quickly enough.You paid £30.50 each for 3 courses which we believe is extremely reasonable given the price increases recently.

    Lovely food and service. Pork belly and welsh lamb where remarkable and cheesecake of the day was a perfect finish for our family dinner. Service was nice and educated although, being a foreigner, I would have liked a little more help to make my choice. Definitely a place to try!

    Really good food and pleasant place to eat. Would have given 5 stars overall as there was a bit of a wait between the starters and the main meal. However, we were a large dish group and the place was really busy. We would certainly recommend going to The Queens for a meal and will be looking to go back there in the future. Many thanks to the team at The Queens.

    Overall the meal was OK our table was booked for 8 we were asked for order we were with friends and one of our party wanted Welsh lamb was not happy when a waitress came back and said there was none left and this was 8 o'clock would think there should have been enough on to accommodate any customer that wanted the lamb when meals finish at 10

    The Queens at HortonResponded on August 21, 2022Unfortunately we were unable to get our usual number of lamb shanks from our butchers due to low stock. I understand this may be frustrating, we get our meat delivered fresh daily & can't control what stock our butchers can provide us. We do only serve until 9pm. I'm disappointed to see you rated everything 4/5 but your overall experience was a 2 due to a lack of the lamb. Hopefully you return and we can rectify any mistakes that were made.

    Bar staff very welcoming, restaurant staff less chatty, had to ask for the specials, had an empty glass for ages and no one asked if we wanted another drink, and we were early, i guess they must just be very busy - food was great.
