user reviews of Queens Head, Coggeshall

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Sadly this pub was closed last year, but through no fault of the landlord who had invested heavily in the business. It is unlikely to re-open in the near future. If you are hoping for some Red Fox beers, I suggest you google their website for their phone number and/or email address to find out where you can find some.

OMG, WHAT a shame. Entered the pub through a lovely lounge area with leather sofas and a very unusual menu board and were greeted by a pleasant lady behind the bar who served our drinks promptly. She asked if we were going to eat and explained about the menu, the carvery and the specials, informed us that we could take a seat and think about it and automatically gave us a bar tab. After reading the extensive menu I decided to have a look at the cavery. There were 3 people in the restaurant and all the salad dishes were covered in cling film. One meat was already out and one of the chef's (who I think was the landlord) stared at me and I said 'it okay, I'm just looking' - he stared at me for a moment and then said 'I have people in the restaurant, how would you feel if I walked aroud your dining room'. I actually thought he was joking for a moment - how can you decide if you want the carvery or not if you can't see it. You would have thought that I'd sneezed on the roast! I have NEVER been so insulted in my life. We decided that we weren't going to eat and then, when we went to pay for our drinks, the chef (!) came to stand at the bar and stare at us with his hands on his hips. How intimidating for 3 women on their own. We paid and left, we ended up in The King's Arms down the road. So glad we did! No wonder when we went past 2 hours later the roasts hadn't been touched - he probably scared off all the customers.

A visit personally facilitated by the brewer at the Red Fox, Russell Barnes, who supplies the Queens Head's cask ales, and kindly agreed to take our party over to the pub and partake of some rather tasty sandwiches alongside more of his beer. None of your cheese and pickle either - meatball salsa, if you please! If this was a taster of the food at this establishment then I dareesay it can be highly-recommended; there is certainly a large enough dining room/conservatory to the rear which can service a large number of eaters so I imagine it's popular.

Ale-wise, only 3 on, but each was kept perfectly and if you enjoy Russell's range - it is extensive and he advised us that the pub turns over many different beers - you won't be disappointed. The Wiley Old Fox, Guy Fox (seasonal) and Red Fox Bitter were on song. All were dispensed by friendly and efficient ladies behind the bar.

An unspectacular building to look at outside, although apparently there has been an inn on the site for many centuries, and rather spartan and restauranty on the inside. One might be forgiven for thinking this is your routine by-numbers family Harvester-type operation, but think again: there are some hidden pleasures at the Queens Head. And you don't need a personal invitation from a local brewer!

Slightly outside the main village on a main road. I was pleased to stumble across it on a country walk. Large, clean interior with a big adjacent restaurant. Probably more for passing trade than for locals. However the barmaid was very friendly. The three ales were all local brews and well kept so I think it must be a free house. Didn't try the food but presumably good value, no-nonsense cooking.
Lots of country lanes and footpaths nearby so well worth calling in if you're on a walking or cycling trip.
The Bell in nearby Feering is also really good.

A large traditional free house that re-opened late last year. My visit was back in November which I was unable to review until now. I had to get the pub listed on BITE first. As Red Fox brewery is also in Coggeshall it made sense to both that they are the beer supplier. Three hand pumps with the Red Fox range are usually available. The brewer also started earlier last year. On the visit the beer was slightly colder than I usually prefer however the quality was very good. The pub has a large rear area for dining with many tables available. The food we tried was very tasty and seemed top quality ingredients. I understand the Sunday carvery roast is well worth a visit.
