Scenes from the Weekend... Part 4

We enjoyed a very pleasant evening at The Queen's Head... There were only a few people around this time, either chatting to friends, having a meal, reading newspapers or just relaxing at the end of their weekends. It was nice to catch up with a few of our friends and find out about the things that they had been doing over the course of the weekend - Sarah and Mark had been gliding, and Roger and Maureen had been busy in the garden and windsurfing.

Here's an image of the main fireplace at the Queen's...

This is one view from the table we sat at to eat our meal. There probably aren't too many pubs even in this country with the Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom on the wall... England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are each represented on this Coat of Arms. If you look at the top right hand image in the collage, then you can probably get a better impression...

And here's the other view from our table, looking through into the bar area itself. Roger and Maureen are seated to the left.

And here's the view from the other side of the bar, with Jerry doing his stuff behind the bar - he's an excellent bar manager. We're standing and chatting to Sarah and Mark who had just come in as we were finishing our meals...

They decided to eat also so we sat down with them whilst they enjoyed their meal. Here's a close up view of the beer engines behind the bar, taken from the table just near the fireplace.

and a final view of that wonderful fireplace with the wood burning down at the end of a very pleasant evening.

Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we did. Warm wishes, Vxx


  1. Lovely - I'd been waiting in the parking lot ever since you dropped us off there the other day! I was glad to finally get inside for a look, and the wait was worth it. It looks just like we all imagine an English pub should look. What did you eat???????

  2. Goodness me that was pretty remiss of me to leave you waiting all this time! I ate venison en croute with red wine sauce, vegetables and side salad, my husband was wicked and ordered the monster rib eye steak platter - both meals were deliciously yummy but no room for pudding/dessert sadly.

  3. Looks like a wonderful place to hang out with friends.Of course you would find me by the fireplace. I'm glad you had an enjoyable time over the weekend. I did as well. It's so fun seeing these lovely establishments in your pretty country.

  5. What a cozy place! Wish I were there...

  6. Queen's Head looks super awesome. If I'm not mistaken, you have taken a photo of a pizza in one of those tables in Queen's Head.

    I really like how the bar looks. It's somewhere I would really like to relax to.
