History

 
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.  If you click on History and Conservation you will be taken to two very informative documents about our past.

Our Cellar

 
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 cleaning  programme undertaken by Clear Brew Oxford 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 Cellar Cleaning  to see a graphical representation of the cellar. This information is extrapolated from our idraught system, and shows the most recent reported 4 week period.
