Friendly Staff, Good Accommodation, enjoyable stay
I've stayed before and thought I would revisit as I had work again in the area.
Different Room this time, and it was as enjoyable as my last room. Well presented, clean and tidy, Tea/coffee facilities and bottled fresh water. Usual friendly welcome by the Lad who works behind the bar, efficient check-in, food as last time was excellent. Free Wi-Fi with a good connection.. Its an old Grade 1 listed Building, so has some really nice features, a bit limiting for the owners, but they do a great Job and have made my stays all enjoyable, and the rooms I have stayed in have all be presented very well, with food that is far better than other more high end hotels I have used. Keep up the great work, will be staying again for sure.
Traditional English pub
The landlords have been at the Queens Head for less than 2 years and are working hard to make it a success.
They and the bar staff are friendly and welcoming to guests. It's an old pub building, and maintains its traditional character in the bar/snug/dining room. The accommodation upstairs has been modernised, but is constrained by the old building; my room was rather small with a comfortable bed but otherwise minimal furnishing (no wardrobe, just hooks on the wall; no chair; no dressing table/desk) which was adequate for two nights' stay. The Queens Head isn't a gastropub, but provides reasonably good traditional English pub food; the breakfasts were good. The location is just outside Saffron Walden, close to the M11 and convenient for Cambridge, which is about half an hour's drive.
