The Queens Head

recommended by 4 people 4 recommends

The Queen's Head is Pinner's oldest Inn and steeped in history. Records show that there has been an Inn on the site since 1540, although there is a theory that there was an Ale house on the site here when King Edward III signed the Royal Charter to create Pinner's annual fair in 1336. We know for certain that our cellars are 12th century. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the Inn was called The Crown; only in 1715 was it renamed The Queen's Head. In 1872, Eleanor, the daughter of Horatio Nelson, Nelson's only daughter, was killed by a bolting horse outside The Queen's Head. She was unmarried and predeceased her mother. It is said that her benevolent ghost still roams the rooms of the pub. Both Eleanor and Horatia are buried locally.
The Queen's Head being a traditional 'Real Ale Pub' and CAMRA Pub of the Year 2015 serves 6 permanent real ales and 2 guest ales which are changed weekly. We also have 4 beer festivals a year with different themes. Our next beer festival, a Greene King Celebration, starts on 25th November. The Queen's Head is one of only 9500 pubs in thew UK which is Casque Marque Accredited. Please look at the real ales page on our website for tasting notes and current guest ales. Lagers and beers on tap include: Stella, Peroni, Heineken, St Miguel, Brewdog IPA, London Meantime, Estrella, Fosters, Carlsberg, Aspall Cyder and Guinness. There is also a wide selection of white, rose and red wines, as well as a range of popular and premium vodkas, gin, whiskies and other spirits. Lunch is served from 12.00 - 3.00pm. Monday to Sunday and Dinner is served 5.00 - 9.00pm Monday to Saturday. Bookings can be made online or over the phone.
Our food offer is based on hearty home made pub food with all meats supplied by Hilton's Butchers of Pinner. Please look at our menu pages for current offer.
We are a dog friendly pub, and small dogs under their owners control are most welcome. We even supply dog biscuits and water bowls on request. Please ensure that dogs are on a lead and supervised at all times. We cannot accommodate dogs in the bar area during published food service times. The Queen's Head has a large car park at the rear which is free to guests who have collected a permit from the bar when making a purchase. We also have a large heated garden which is in use throughout the year. We have free Wi-Fi and mobile phone charging. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate children in the bar area.
We are very proud of our highly trained staff. As an ethical employer, we pay the London living wage, plus benefits, free travel and regular training. 4 of our staff are doing NVQ courses in Hospitality, 3 are license holders and 2 have done residential management courses. We use a private company to do our Mystery Shopper reports, and these are done 4 times a year. If you click on 'mystery shopper' report you will see our latest report.
We are extremely proud of the accolades we receive for the condition of our ales and lagers. This is in part due to the comprehensive Cellar Cleaning programme we undertake every Monday morning. This involves using copious amounts of water to flush the lines through, then a special line cleaner, followed by even more copious amounts of water to complete the task. To give you an idea of what this involves, please click on 'line cleaning' to see a graphical representation of the cellar. This information is extrapolated from our idraught system, and shows the last 4 weeks cleaning.
