Lovely pub, good location. Simple rooms

It is a great little country pub. They brew their own beer. The food is great. A good base to explore the local area from. The rooms are basic. Old plumbing and low water pressure. The walls are also a bit thin, being ear plugs just in case!

Two nights at the Queens Head, dog friendly xx

Problem with the heating was very cold, loads of cobwebs above bed behind beams, could see them blowing. Beding clean but old, the carpets were hoovered but need a wash, the food is excellent as is the staff, very friendly , wouldn't stay there again, as disabled, too many steps, but would go back for a meal, good selection of ales .

The Queen's is a typical village pub with excellent food and friendly,helpful staff. Don't be put off by the current bridge closure at Pooley Bridge, it really is worth the effort to get there. Although the accommodation would benefit from a refurb , particularly the carpet we had a comfortable stay.
