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.

Four of us went for lunch. Was not given any menus on seating. Had to ask for them. Had to ask if our order could be taken. One of our party asked twice for mayonnaise it never turned up. Steak had a blood clot in it which made me feel queazy. Service charge was added to the bill which should have been an option as the service was poor

Family meal. Pleasant staff but sometimes little things get forgotten like cream on a desert or an ordered jug of water for the table but food is excellent and place is lovely.
One mini gripe is unlit lighting on table. If it’s on table please light it! If it’s not lit just take it off the table please. A burnt down tea light adds nothing to the dining experience.

The food was really quite nice (could have used a gravy jug as was quite dry and they forgot my stuffing!), however the service was incredibly slow. We were seated for two hours for a two course meal (we are fast eaters!).
The staff were nice, it was just a lot of waiting. Also sucked that we were directly under the speakers so could hardly hear ourselves think.

I went to the Queen's Head for lunch yesterday, we were a party of 4 including a young child. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed our lunch in the garden. The food, the atmosphere, the garden, the staff were all exceptional. We had such a lovely experience we have already booked our next visit. The Queens Head Fyfield is a real gem.
