Welcome to the Queens Head

Since the early 17th Century The Queen’s Head Inn has been welcoming weary travellers and visitors to the village of Hawkshead. Some things don’t change, whether you want to drink, dine or unwind, you will find The Queen’s Head the perfect base to explore the beautiful South Lakes of Cumbria and beyond. We have thirteen comfortable guest rooms all with private bathrooms and all individually styled and furnished. Free Wi-Fi is available for all our guests.

Our restaurant, awarded an AA rosette, has a menu to suit all tastes. Each dish is devised and perfected by our Head Chef Kevin Hodge and is designed to utilise local ingredients from local suppliers. Whether it’s a light lunch or an evening meal, The Queen’s Head offers a warm welcome and good food to those in search of a relaxed and traditionally English environment.

A big shout out to our Kitchen Team for retaining our 1 Rosette Award! Well done lads!!

What a fantastic achievement for all of our staff here at The Queens Head. We have just had our annual spot check with the AA and are ecstatic after being upgraded to a 4 star Silver awarded Inn & Restaurant. We have also retained a rosette for our food.
A personal thank you from the management to each and every staff member here that have made this possible and to all our guests that come and visit us!null
