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.

This is our local which I love and we had a great time with friends who had travelled a fair way to join us from South London.

They were very flexible on moving our table time on what was a busy Sunday service, but general table service was a bit slower than usual, which was a shame. Nevertheless, I will be returning and already have a table booked Wednesday evening with my girl friends!

We have been to the Queens Head on many occasions and the food is consistently excellent, and this time did not disappoint. the only reason i am not scoring higher this time is that the service was not as good as it usually is.

We do enjoy The Queens Head.
Due to the close nature of the restaurant - it was extremely warm - which did make it ever so slightly uncomfortable. We also struggled to get out of our table passed other tables, as they are so tightly packed.

Lunch was lovely - Great menu, and very tasty.
Only 2 negatives - the Mussels on the menu, there were a few closed ones in the portion, which should not have been served - the dish was lovely, but that made it a bit picky to eat with having to check them.
The Yorkshire puddings were a little dry / crispy - needed a lot more gravy to make them moist.

We would visit and again and would still recommend - I believe in constructive comments

Staff were lovely (as we were sat upstairs - maybe a little more attentiveness could be given - we didn't get to order another round of drinks for our main course as no one came up to see us)

We went here for the first time with friends who are locals. I had to phone to let them know about my allergy. Chrissy bent over backwards to help me & ensure that I was taken care of on the night. As soon as we walked in, my allergy was mentioned & I was told it was all in hand. The staff are friendly & professional. Our meal was delicious & beautifully presented. We will definitely go again.

This is a nice pub and obviously very popular. The menu was quite upmarket for this type of country pub and it was noticeable that there were not many diners on the Friday evening. I believe the meals were overpriced with starters being particularly expensive. We eat out regularly and whilst the menu was a little different from the norm, the prices did not warrant to be at this level.

Lovely Sunday Lunch. Hearty portions and tasty sticky toffee pudding. The lovely lady at the bar was very patient when my American friends went “off piste” with their drinks orders. She did a great job.

There were a couple of hiccups with our order but they were handled very well. Our main issue is one we have with a lot of restaurants and that is the service charge. This should not be automatically applied to the bill and be left to us to decide if we feel the level of service wanted a tip. Saying that we do not want to pay it or not pay the amount suggested is embarrasing for all concerned. We chose a modestly priced bottle of wine (relatively speaking) but had we had chosen an expensive wine we would have been penalised by the adding of a sevice charge to it. The waiting staff find it no harder to open and pour a dearer bottle than a cheaper one. As it happened the sevice was excellent on the night and we would have given a similar amount to the service charge as a tip anyway, but it should neither be automatically added to the bill nor expected as a right. So yes we would recommend the Queens Head but with a caveat that they have a bad policy in terms of the service charge.

The food was very good with good service and friendly staff. The dining area was fine but the entrance from the carpark could do with updating. We were there on a quiet evening amitly but bar staff cleaning up the bar when you are half way through your expensive meal is a little off putting. It's restaurant prices and food quality, possibly let down a little by the pub atmosphere. More pub with very nice food than restaurant basically.

Very pleasant atmosphere both inside and in the garden although the garden furniture is very tired.
Well balanced and enticing Sunday Lunch menu with lots of choice.
The food was well presented and very good. The roast beef was very tender.
Good wine list with plenty of choice.
£95 for Sunday Lunch for 3 (bread and main course only and drinks).
