The Queens Head is a pub full of character, tastefully restored with some of the original features remaining in tact.

My first visit a week or so ago on a Monday night for tapas and a few beers with work colleagues.

A good selection of 5 beers, I opted for Adnams Southwold and it was perfect time.

As there was a large group of us we were given the whole of the upstairs dining room, the food was plentiful and quickly dispatched to our tables. Good value for money, with quality ingredients used...I must say I thought it was some of the best Tapas I have ever had.

Attentive and quick service from the waiter / server...all in all I had an excellent experience here and will not hesitate to come back

I am glad other reviewers have had more favourable experiences than me here.
Against my will I was dragged back in here again last night, and to give credit where it is due my experience this time was better in certain aspects.
Firstly the French landlord has finally realised that on hot sultry days people want to stand outside in the air, and therefore the exterior wooden bench tables are now packed away to provide some space so that he no longer has to do his very annoying impression of a sheepdog on heat trying to get everyone to stand inside some imaginary white line that appears to be only drawn in his head.
And secondly , all five handpumps were functioning and the quality of the ale was quite good.
Unfortunately what hasn’t changed is the ability of the staff employed here. Frankly long gone members of the Guild of Barkeeps who were adept at serving several customers in parallel and keeping the charges in their head before taking the money to enter into the push key tills in the days before EPOS terminals, would be spinning in their graves when watching this lot.
Firstly , when you make it to the bar, be prepared for the lottery to be served as they still have no inclination to who arrived first or second and still serve whoever is closest to their eyeline when they turn back from the EPOS terminal
Secondly, when you do get served be prepared to have to ask for top ups as on three occasions last night I was the victim of woefully short pulling unless you like a good 2 centimetres of foam on the top of your pint.
And finally when you try and pay expect further delay whilst the complexity of pushing a few buttons on a state of the art EPOS terminal has a hypnotic effect on the user.
So an improvement , but the Queen & Artichoke still does not inspire me to return out of choice.

I was actually reasonably impressed by this pub. Despite it being very crowded and a little trendy, it had a reasonable pub atmosphere and an acceptable choice of ales. For some reason I had imagined it would be a typical gastro type offering, but the food trade seems to be mostly absorbed by the upstairs restaurant, in which by the way, the food was pretty good. Deserves way more than its current rating.

Seems ok, landlord was good, pedigree and others all on, middle of the day so quiet but nothing else to report...

Well worth a visit. Last Friday (Dec10th) very crowded but speed of service acceptable. Five ales on hand pumps: TTaylor's Landlord (being changed); Marston's Pedigree; Adnam's Bitter; Sharp's Cornish Coaster and Sharp's Abbey Christmas.
