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.

A lovely, historic local village pub, with genuinely good food, and beautifully renovated recently during the opportunities afforded by lockdown.

Totally fulfilled our expectation except slightly more expensive.
Cracking little pub/resturant. Lovely food and smashing staff.
Just slightly more expensive that we had hoped for a Sunday roast. We would still visit again

very nice old style pub with good menu choices. was a little noiser than might have been due to the family get together/chides party in the same area as us. Didn't really effect us

Popped in for a first visit - quick lunch. Rarebit - delicious and enjoyable. Monkfish "scampi" was delicious while a pollock hotdog with pickled jalapeno read deliciously - as pollock is a good fish for this type of food. However, fish was overcooked and batter hard as a result... tasty just a bit over done.

The only Rosé by the glass was a good crisp Provencale wine, but 125ml for £7.50 was a bit rich. Sadly the two pints of Adnam's Ghost Ship were odd. The first pint was possibly the first out of the pump - and not good, but they swiftly swapped it out for a fresh one. Which was great.

But the follow up pint has the same issues as the first - yet it was from the same barrell. Not enough to prevent us from coming back to try the full menu in an evening meal. Lovely interior, cracking staff and the specials would have been perfect, had I noticed them. A gentle nudge in that blackboard's dorection would have been good. But I missed it so my bad.

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.
