user reviews of the Queens Head, Littlebury

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

Went to littlebury to visit my family again and had another great time at The Queenshead, Just wish my local was as good,the darts team were playing and provided some well mannered entertainment, the new burger menu is stunning.We ended up staying in one of their guest rooms which are lovely and payed Audley End Manor house another visit. Going back today as Den and Dave Duo are playing aka Dennis Stratton ex Iron Maiden guitarist,they play lots of various tracks including Eric Clapton,The Beatles,ect. Well worth a visit!

We paid this inn a visit back at the begining of the month and went back last weekend as we were visiting family and it just gets better,the landlord and landlady remembered us from our previous visit and looked after us from start to finish,they had expanded their range of real ales and im ashamed to say i tried them all and was in ale heaven,the food was outstanding,so was the atmosphere.If you are ever near Saffron Walden and find a little village called Littlebury then you must try it out.Will deffinately be going back!

My local, which I sadly don't get into enough. The Queens Head has changed hands many times over the past 15 years. It was a very decent Good Pub Guide free house with really good food, but the landlord's brother (the chef) ran off with the landlady and it all fell apart, changed a tenanted/managed house, with various, mainly large brewery owners, the chains fleecing a variety of well meaning and hard working landlords/ladies over the years.
A very old, nice looking inn, with decent rooms, a restaurant area (I used the restaurant a couple of times, a few years ago now, and the food was good then) the usual bar food/snacks, and most importantly, a well kept cellar.
Sometimes it could get very quiet (the fault of people like me), and had a touch of the "Slaughtered Lamb" about it, but the standard of the beer served here has remained consistently high. The current managers have really put great effort into making it a success, running quiz nights, theme evenings and similar, so if you like that kind of thing you're often be in luck .
Though a proper traditional pub, with a couple of outsize original open fires, it does have a few mod cons like decent flat screen tellies (not 50" jobs, but in keeping with the size of the bar) which get turned on for special sports events, and an electronic dart board (a couple of darts teams are in the local leagues) large and attractive garden, and an occasional bouncy castle for the small pubsters.
The rooms are up the narrow stairs, and are not big, but clean (I had a look when planning a possible family event), and apparantly much in demand by people going to the open air concerts up the road at Audley End.
Has a loyal local following, as well as many from the villages round about, and is the after match venue for the local cricket team.
Watch it when turning right out of the car park, as the visibility is not good, and the main road suffers from speedsters, but you could always go left and left again to get back to the main round in 2 mins.
