    We have not been in The Queens for a time so we were pleasantly surprised by the menu. A far better range of food was on offer, not just burgers and steaks. The venison dish was really tasty and the service did not take too long.

    Food was just ‘ok’. Had sirloin steak which was horribly gristly. Nobody checked how our food was so battled on with it. Did mention it to waitress when she collected plates but no response. Waited forever for drinks. Very busy which was fine & sign of a good pub but this meant service was slow. Liked the huge apple crumble however. Waited a long time for someone to come over so we could get the bill but had to go & find someone in the end. Average experience for the price. Shame really as we’ve had better meals.

    Never been disappointed at any visit to the queens, the food quality and portion size is amazing we all went for the lamb it was cooked to perfection as was everything else. Would highly recommend the cheesecake for dessert . All of the staff were helpful well mannered and professional. Looking forward to our next visit.

    We had a very pleasant birthday lunch. The staff were so helpful and accommodating, they went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. Service was efficient and the food was good quality and reasonably priced. It was a lovely setting and relaxing atmosphere. The staff had the perfect blend of attentiveness and availability but not over imposing. Perfect customer service! Thank you so much.

    Enjoyed a family get together over the Christmas period. Food was okay but one of the party had a very tough fish and really did it not enjoy their meal. Staff were friendly and attentive and atmosphere pleasant. Was really hoping more from the food choice and standard - average pub meal at best.

    We had a lovely welcome and staff were very helpful . However sauce for my steak was not very warm and the Chicken parmigiana was dry . By the time someone came to do a check back we had already eaten most of it so felt too late to make a fuss.

    Lovely meal. My friend and I had the pie which was really tasty . Just a couple of minor things. The new potatoes on the menu we’re supposed to be garlic new potatoes and there was no taste of garlic. My friend had the mash which was a little dry, maybe a little jug of gravy would be a good addition. Staff were very helpful and attentive.

    Food wasn't as nice as previous visits. Mash was hard and rubbery and profiteroles didn't have 'baileys' cream as described. Drinks were wrong but Still enjoyed our meal out and will try again

    Greeted as we arrived and took to our table for 3 people. Christmas crackers on table and a lovely ambience quiet but a little background music on and cosy. Drinks order taken and given enough time to order. Ordered starters and mains from festive menu which included; Artisan breads , prawn cocktail and mushrooms which were delicious. Mains were tasty and well presented too I had fish and chips which were lovely batter was just right. Desserts followed to include profiteroles- Baileys, Prosecco dessert and Banoffee cheesecake. Good sized portions. Customer service - very attentive- full marks to The Queens. Thankyou

    We have been to Queens several times and never had a bad meal however our recent visit, the service was awful, we sat with dirty plates for 25 minutes and only after calling someone over did they get removed. The food was dry, and had been reheated and sat… the food was very poor. Considering it was £29 for a roast dinner and a pudding the food and service was appalling

    We booked a festive meal with friends, food is always good however there is a set 2 or 3 course festive meal. Last night we were charged this but still tried to charge sweets on top, and one sweet didn't come complete (chocolate tart with no ice cream). We did mention to waitress who was going to investigate but never came back- this was eventually removed from the bill

    We've been many times in the past for lunch and been very happy but for this evening meal we were very disappointed. The menu was limited to Christmas fare, the lamb shank and gravy bland and insipid (despite incurring a £4 supplement), and the cost was high for what was actually received. We were introducing a friend to Queens for the first time and the impression he got didn't live up to the picture we gave him. I don't know if he'll choose to visit again.

    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 on December 2, 2022Thanks 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.

    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.
