The Dennington Queen: a great restaurant near Woodfarm
One of my favourite local places; formerly The Queens Head, it is now very much more a restaurant than a pub. A large timber-framed building set back from the road and close to the church. Spacious dining areas and a small retained drinking area. Parts date from the early 16th century, others from the early 17th.
Landlord Peter Mills says their ghost (nicknamed Albert) can be heard pacing around above the bar. There have also been instances where the stereo has been turned off by a ghostly hand and the vacuum cleaner switched on! Apparently. I’m saying nothing!
It gets extremely busy, particularly on Sundays so it’s well worth booking.
Re-launched as The Dennington Queen in 2008 after an extensive refurb, it’s privately owned.
The food is excellent and in very nice surroundings! It has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and seems to have a great approach to customer service, which is something close to my heart. They have great food, wine and beer.
There’s a lovely decking area at the back with views of the church next door. They do light lunches, a la carte dinners and fabulous Sunday roasts.
Their website has more photos, info and menus so have a look.
Open 7 days a week from 12-2pm & 6.30-9pm
