Description: Reopening in April 2017 after a £2 million refurbishment, The Queens Head Hotel is Located 4 miles from Ambleside and Windermere and nestled on the side of the fells which overlook the Troutbeck Valley. The new Queens Head will feature a large drinking area with cosy dining areas and 10 newly-refurbished en-suite guest bedrooms providing the perfect base for guests to Cumbria and, of course, their four legged companions. Renowned for serving some of the finest food in the area, The Queens Head’s new menu will highlight a mixture of homely classic pub food with a Cumbrian flair. So, whether stopping by for a pint of one of Robinsons award-winning cask ales, enjoying some wholesome home-cooked food or staying the night, you are always guaranteed to receive a warm Lakeland welcome when visiting the Queens Head.

We were warmly welcomed for our overnight stay at this delightful pub with rooms. Everywhere is spotless and the interior decor is gorgeous. We stayed in Pillar, a very spacious bedroom with a huge super comfy bed and a fantastic bathroom with both bath and shower. We ate in the restaurant, but on a future visit would probably eat out for a more exciting menu. Our breakfast was delicious and cooked to order, with options other than the standard bacon and eggs. This was a very enjoyable stay and would certainly visit again.

Highly recommend the queens head. I've been several times since it reopened and always had great food and excellent service. The waitress is just lovely, she couldn't look after us more (can't remember her name but she has two teenage sons and she has blonde hair), she's made our visit on 3 occasions now.

On this occasion there were three adults, 2 had fish pie and one had hotpot. All three of us raved about our food while trying to keep my baby under control.

Apparently the beet is good too and believe me my dad knows a good pint.

We will definitely keep returning. Thank you.

We had an evening meal here and the surroundings and service are great. Not the best meal I’ve had but not the worst.

Stopped for a quick drink on a visit to the lakes. Nice friendly and warm! Dogs welcome if well behaved - a bonus! Decent selection of drinks and great selection of guns. Only problem was we had to leave the warmth to continue our travels!

Called in for a late lunch. Friendly staff, good ale & food, and welcoming atmosphere. Went for the cod and triple fried chips and the better half went for the hot beef sandwich with a portion of onion rings. Served quickly even though most tables were occupied. Good pub well worth the visit.
