Welcome to The Queens Head
The Queen’s Head is Pinner's Oldest Inn.
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 site here when King Edward III signed the Royal Charter to create Pinner's Annual Fair in 1336.
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, Nelsons only daughter, was killed by a bolting horse outside the Queens 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', serves 6 ‘permanent’ real ales and 2 guest ales which are changed weekly. Please look at our real ales page for tasting notes.

We are very proud of our cellar and the high standards of cleanliness which we maintain. All beer lines are cleaned every Monday morning with copious amounts of water, a proprietory beer line cleaner, which is then followed by even more copious quantities of water. This ensures a consistently high quality pint of ale or lager. If you double click on cellar cleaning which is highlighted, you will gain an insight into our cleaning regime over the last 4 weeks, which is reproduced from our idraught installation.
