Bradley and I have been home all weekend (gym aside) and we pretty much want to kill ourselves! It was because of the cabin fever we decided to go for a walk around our lovely Weybridge and head down to The Queens Head.
Situated quite close to Weybridge station, on Bridge Road, The Queens Head was built around 1700 and has apparently been both a coach house and court-house (with gallows and everything!) and legend on the website says it is also apparently haunted by a quarrelling couple!
We managed to get a last-minute reservation, via bookatable for 3.30 pm and made the walk down.
On arrival, the place was very busy and were offered either a table in the bar or, in the restaurant. The bar table had a love seat so there we sat. Now usually, our Sunday lunches end up lasting for 3 hours and this was no different. We had wedding planning to do and it took us nearly one hour to order our starters. We went for the Ploughman’s Sharing Board (£10.80) that had, what I can honestly say, a piece of the best cheese ever (Exmoor blue cheese), a piece of Glastonbury Green Cheddar, Kettle Ham and a Pork Pie. Now whilst I am not partial to a Pork Pie, Bradley assured me it was super tasty. The board wasn’t huge, and only had one piece of ham but it sure was a treat!
After another hour or so, our very patient waitress took our order for mains. By this time I had drunk a very tasty bottle of red wine (Château Maris Organic Syrah)(£22.00) which I thought being organic may stop the hangover…so far so good? Bradley, as always, ordered the Fillet Steak, with Harissa butter (£23.90) and I had the Bœuf Bourguignon (£16.80). The food was really amazing, great sizes and a decent price. As standard, sides are extra and all we had were French Beans (£3.90).
Our meal including service, a few beers and my whole bottle of wine was £87.60 (plus tip). Not cheap but definitely well worth it. We will definitely go back, it’s so close to home. The staff were all lovely and welcoming and the whole atmosphere of the pub is nice.
