The Queens Head

recommended by 1 people 1 recommend

The Queen's Head is Pinner's oldest Inn and steeped in History of The Queens Head 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.

To finish why not try one of our fantastic alcohol infused ice creams by Speakeasy.

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. The Queen's Head has a large car park at the rear which is free to guests who have registered at 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.  Well behaved children supervised by their parents are very welcome until 7.30pm. at the managers discretion.  Blankets for outdoor use are available from the bar for a £5 returnable cash deposit.
We are very proud of our highly trained staff. As an ethical employer, we pay 15% above the upper end of the London living wage, plus private health care, private pension, free travel, complimentary food,  perkbox, and regular training. 4 of our staff are doing NVQ courses in Hospitality and 4 are license holders.  We use EGM 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 cleaning  programme undertaken by our senior staff, Sean White, Kier Howard & Florica Bumbuc 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.
Every Monday night at 8.30pm we have Quiz Night.  Come and exercise the grey matter, great prizes and lots of fun.                
Join us on Saturday 17th March for our St Patrick's Day celebrations.  Live music from Jason Hakin.  Open till midnight.
We are now partnering with Uber Eats, so you can have any of our pizzas delivered fresh to your front door, with any of your favourite beers and wines and speakeasy ice creams.
