The Queens Head, which was destroyed by a fire in 2014, will feature both a large drinking area and more secluded dining areas when it reopens in April. The bar, a former four-poster bed, has been restored and will serve the pub’s new range of gins along with ales, lagers, wines and spirits.
William Robinson, managing director or Robinsons Brewery, said: “It’s no easy feat restoring such a historic pub. It was of the utmost importance that we worked closely with the local council to ensure the most authentic restoration of the original building’s fabric.
“The Queens Head has never been a case of ‘reinventing the wheel’ and it will pick right up where it left off - a cosy, family friendly pub where you can enjoy a pint, a great night’s stay, and a warm, hearty meal. The outpouring of support from local residents and previous customers has been brilliant and we can’t wait to welcome them back to the Queen’s Head this April.”
The brewery consulted old friends of the pub when creating the menu to ensure their favourite dishes are available. The new menu will feature hearty classic pub food.
Ten newly refurbished en-suite bedrooms will be available, starting from £110 per night, with four rooms suitable for dogs.
