    The place itself looks very inviting and is cosy inside. Although the table given seemed very small for two people to comfortably have drinks/food on. It was also very rocky, so cutting and eating was an experience. The service was standard, the greeter seemed flustered and didn’t mention about what dishes they couldn’t offer, so we were left disappointed a few times. There should’ve been some music playing in the background, although I’m not sure if there was. The food looked really good, though I would advise to check the menu. As it differs from dishes like venison stew to fish & chips. It is limited in what they offer which is understandable, as everything is locally sourced. I was hoping for more options, being set in the beautiful countryside there should be more game offered. It would tie perfectly with the restaurant. As it is the festive period we were hoping for a Christmas menu, which they didn’t seem to have. The prices are inflated for what you get on the plate in my opinion. The food was to an average standard. A pint of coke is £3 which is extraordinarily expensive. Overall the restaurant seemed okay, but pricey for the standard of food and what you are served. Issues were raised but nothing really done about it. I would recommend giving it a try to see if it is to your taste. However it serves better as a place to drink.

    The Queens at HortonResponded 1 day agoThanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry we did not have the venison, but this was the only item missing from our main menu & there were plenty of other options to choose from. I'm struggling to understand how you can make a comment on the standard/price of the food when you did not eat. Our drinks prices are reasonable and match local pubs. As it was still November when you visited, our festive menu had not launched yet. Hope you return & try our excellent food soon. Ollie.

    We hadn't been for a few years, but due to favourable reviews arranged to meet friends here for dinner. Food and service were decent without being exceptional. Unfortunately our party were sometimes unable to converse due to the loud live music from the adjacent room. We don't recall any mention of this when we booked our table a few weeks earlier. Don't let this put you off going, but if you want to chat I suggest you check it is a non-music night first.

    It took 3 times to get my friends order correct, when it was finally correct they had run out of normal burger buns and without asking substituted it with a vegan bun which was like cardboard and inedible, my friend ended up not having a main course and had a bowl of chips which were served in what can only be described as a dog bowl. My friend then ordered 2 puddings as she had gone without a main course, the cookie dough was fine, however, the chocolate orange cheesecake was very mediocre, there wasn’t a very distinct orange flavour to it and the chocolate buttons in the actual cheesecake layer made for a very strange eating experience, as whilst enjoying smooth cheesecake you were suddenly surprised my rock hard chocolate buttons. I know with the pudding it is down to personal preference, however, I had wanted to come to the queens for many years and used my 50th birthday as a reason for my first visit, I have to to be honest, I was quite disappointed and fear that I will not be in a rush to return. I have put that I would recommend a friend as I hope that others would not have the same experience and in the past I gave only ever heard good things about it.

    I wouldn’t of booked a business meal knowing there was going to be live music, we couldn’t hear ourselves speak. They should of seated us in the conservatory which was further away. It was disappointing as the food was lovely.

    The Service and ambience was second to none. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing too much trouble. I had Crispy Beef Salad it was the best I have had, I seem to go for this at many restaurants but this was easily the best. I would recommend this restaurant again and again.

    We were a family of four. When we arrived, we were shown straight to our table and asked if we would like a drink whilst we perused the menu. The food choices we all made were outstanding. The food was presented beautifully, and the was cooked to perfection. The staff were warm, friendly and efficient.

    Excellent food, service was fine and staff polite, but a special request for cheese and biscuits to avoid potential waste was ignored. Requested no ciabetta or relish - came with both. This was raised and rectified but it seemed I might have upset someone in the kitchen who then returned the plate with 12 plus biscuits - I thought too many. Quite noisy near bar when door open with football on. Staff did close the door when asked if it was OK to do so.

    Service was very good, and the dining room really nice. The food was tasty BUT not hot enough - it was not cold, just warm. Reluctant to re book but, perhaps the chef was just having an off day, so will give it another try.

    The food is wonderful but the service is slow and lacking and for the third time glasses had to be sent back as they were dirty. Not only that, but we had to wait while the glasses were put through the dishwasher which meant they were still warm when brought back. Had we ordered glasses of wine instead of a full bottle we might not have noticed how dirty the glasses were. Whilst really pleasant, the waitress showed no shock that we were returning the glasses and that’s really disturbing. The glasses were brought to the table by the barman who put them on the table and walked off never to be seen again. Due to this lack of hygiene I wouldn’t recommend to a friend without warning them to check the glasses.

    Thoroughly disappointed in our evening out with friends. The service was exceptionally poor. The waiting staff made us feel like we were an inconvenience, and if there had been sort of disagreement between those who were serving. Drinks being banged on the table, no cutlery replaced after our starter we had to ask for replacements, we had to attract staff to ask for additional drinks. Liqueur coffees brought to the table with the liquid swimming in the saucer… with no offer to replace it or apologise. The restaurant wasn’t busy with only two tables occupied when we arrived, and only two other tables after us that we saw. The food was reasonable however the veg on the steak and ale pie was watery, as was the gravy in the pie itself. Unfortunately we won’t return and I certainly wouldn’t recommend to other friends. Maybe it was just a bad night… but enough to deter a future visit.

    The Queens at HortonResponded on October 9, 2022Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you feel that your experience was not adequate as we would never want that to be the case. Our waitress are always complimented on their friendly attitude & they were last night. So I am disappointed that you feel this was not the service you received. Unfortunately, as you did not raise any of these issues with myself when I brought the bill to your table & took payment it is very difficult for me to rectify it if I am unaware until after the fact.

    Lovely place although not a wide range of meals for a vegetarian. Waited ages to ge seated although we had a booking. No one at restaurant reception. We had to walk through the restaurant to get to the bar to find someone and let them know we had arrived. The server wanted to sit us on a very dark and dingy table with hardly any lighting. Asked to sit at a different table and was initially told oh we don't normally use those tables. But she did seat us there. She said that the original table was quite popular to look put and see the sunset, it was 7.15pm and dark!! Food was acceptable.

    The Queens at HortonResponded on October 9, 2022Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that you were unhappy with the table you were assigned, however it was no problem to move you at all. The waitress did comment that the table was normally quite popular to view the sunset, as a passing comment. Unfortunately you didn't bring up any complaints with the food whilst you were here so we were unaware that you were unhappy.

    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.
