The Old Queens Head Mar 27, 2011
Seen by day, the Old Queen's Head is an large, attractive pub, its big fireplace surrounded by upholstered sofas and gilt-framed portraits in a church-like interior. None of this will be visible most evenings, when young, urban musos gather in force around pints of Guinness or bottles of lager.
A dozen cocktails are also offered - nothing too complicated and nothing too sophisticate, but nice enough - as well as around ten wines at fair prices.
The food is pretty mainly (burgers, steak baguettes, but otherwise it's a good and very friendly mix here.
On weekend nights, everyone drinks outside. Entertainment is generally a mix of DJ or bands on any given night, though there's also a fine folk series staged in the comfortable upstairs room.
