Review on The Old Queens Head
The Old Queens Head (OQH, for short) stands on the border between the lovely villages of Penn and Tylers Green, just a a stroll away from the ancient Chiltern beechwoods.
The dining room dates from 1666, but it's seen a lot of improvements over the years. Warm heritage fabrics, flagstones, cosy corners and real fires create just the right atmosphere, whether you are looking for a pint and a snack or a full three-course blow-out.
'Small plates' head the seasonal menu and you might opt for an OQH tapas plate, a smoked haddock and salmon fishcake or baked field mushrooms on olive toast with Taleggio cheese. The list of 'main meals' ranges from crispy roast belly pork on chive mash with Puy lentil and Madeira jus to bacon-wrapped cod fillet on Moroccan bean tagine with crispy leeks.
The pudding menu majors in homespun offerings like apple and cinnamon crumble or chocolate mousse cake, and everything on the affordable, all-European wine list is available by the glass.
