Why we love it...

Well located sister property of Askham Hall

The Place

The sister property of Askham Hall, just a few minutes’ walk away, The Queen’s Head is a village pub hosting six recently-opened rooms. Refurbished in 2019, it’s excellently placed among beautiful surrounding countryside.

Its rooms are uncomplicated but spacious and in varying degrees of traditional: some have exposed beams, wooden four-poster beds and rustic furniture, others have more modern beds with bold wallpapers and glass tables.

The menu is short and classically British, although there is a useful selection of vegetarian options, such as the black bean burger. Indeed, the food already has a reputation locally – especially the desserts. Evening food is offered for residents of the pub or Askham Hall, from 6 to 7:30pm. This is replaced every Friday evening with a ‘pop up restaurant’ offering a different set menu each month, designed by the chefs of Askham Hall and its other sister property, the George and Dragon, also recommended.
