Welcome to The Queen"s Head Fyfield, a traditional family run 16th century freehouse country pub, beautifully located on the banks of the River Roding. The Queen's Head uniquely feels like a pub where locals are comfortable nursing a pint of real ale, but is also renowned for good quality seasonal food in contemporary, comfortable surroundings, with friendly service and a warm ambiance. You can choose to eat at big wooden tables in the pub or, if you prefer, in the smart upstairs dining area. Ingredients are locally sourced and everything is made on site. We stock a good selection of real ales and lagers and have an extensive wine list.

When we first had dinner here about 3 years ago we thought it was excellent. However we feel it has gone down hill somewhat and the menu a little disappointing. Downstairs in the bar area was a little noisy for us so we headed upstairs which was fine. Service was a little slow but the serving staff polite and courteous.

We ate at this restaurant and it was the worst food both my friend and I had tasted in a long time. My friend had pie from asset menu- this looked like a pie bought in and heated up - not homemade. I had fishcake which was mainly potato and very little sauce. We were very disappointed.

The Queens Head Fyfield, is a fantastic little restaurant, with a cosy, intimate feel. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and eager to help your enjoy a special evening out.
My wife and I had a really enjoyable night, away from the noise of the main high street chains, to this quaint little pub in a great setting. The restaurant inside is inviting and fresh, although managing to maintain a certain historical charm (open fireplace looks great for the winter). I would highly recommend you try the Queens head, who's menu certainly beats it's Michelin starred competitors for taste, comfort, and of course variety!

One of the best Sunday lunches we have had in a long time. My husband had the king prawns as a starter which were really tasty, both our roast dinners were excellent and the sticky toffee pudding was to die for. We will definitely be back for more!

Dinner was really good. There’s a real cosy intimate feel especially in winter with candles lit and the log fires. Food was terrific. Every course was lovely and beautifully presented, with the best of it being a wonderful Rabbit Casserole!! Service is prompt and friendly and overall thought it was excellent value for money.

Too many old pubs have missed the boat in updating to the current lifestyle of wining and dining. So many resort to full-on restaurants and lose the ambience and clientele for those who want their local pub. The Queen's Head is both a local pub and an exquisite dining venue. The warm, cosy atmosphere and cheerful, helpful efficient staff blended with superb food made this a night to remember for our special anniversary dinner. It may be small but it is a gem worth seeking out.
