Review on Queens Head
An unusual three-tiered garden overlooking Bramfield's equally distinctive thatched church is part of the attraction of Amanda and Marc Corcoran's forward-looking Suffolk gastro pub.
The Queen's Head was one of the first hostelries outside London to take on board and promote certified organic ingredients in a big way, and it procures as much as possible from named local suppliers: Wakelyn's Farm for vegetables, Temple Farm for free-range chickens, Bramfield Organic Meats for beef and so on.
Grilled dates wrapped in bacon with mild mustard sauce and Longwood Farm lamb à la grecque with couscous are signature dishes, but the menu also takes in twice-baked goats' cheese soufflé with marinated beetroot salad, whole mackerel with pipérade, and filo-pastry parcels filled with Ricotta, sun-blush tomatoes, pine nuts and chard. Homemade ice creams and sorbets are top of the dessert list.
During the week, the pub also provides 'one pot lunches' of – say – lamb tagine or beef and vegetable casserole with crusty bread for a fiver.
