Situated in the idyllic village of Askham in the heart of the North Eastern Fells in the Lake District National Park The Queens Head is a traditional local village Inn. Dating back to the 17th century it offers a comfortable 'olde worlde' interior retaining many of its period features such as a wealth of exposed beams brass and cooper memorabilia and local hunting prints.
Open fires warm the main bar where many a weary walker and huntsman has lingered where locals sit enjoying their usual or where diners chat over a bottle or two of wine. Browse over our menu while enjoying pre-dinner drinks by the warmth of the open fires before moving into our dining area. Relax and enjoy watching the world go by from our cosy snug or just have a refreshing ale and sit by the fire to rest aching limbs after a hard day on the fells.
