The “Queens Head” is proud to be considered locally as “Stratford’s best kept local secret” mainly due to our determination to stay “traditional” whereas many hostelries these days go “Gastro” or “wine bar” Carol, Geoff and Dan are very passionate about keeping the great British pub an ongoing institution. We offer home cooked “pub grub” at very reasonable prices (the hand cut chips are a must!) to suit most tastes, be it a snack or one of our succulent steaks, should you be celebrating a special occasion during your visit, we would be happy to personally recommend one of a number of local restaurants and even make your reservation. We also offer a range of real ales, draught beers, wines and spirits. Our courtyard garden is known to be “the best suntrap in central Stratford” (when we are fortunate enough to enjoy the sun!)Where you can enjoy your food with a relaxing drink. Our bar area has an abundance of oak beams, exposed brickwork and an open fire for those chilly winter evenings, the bar servery is a regular topic of conversation due to a false wall being removed to reveal a forgotten inglenook fireplace with an antique cast iron cooking range. The “Queens Head” has recently been refurbished throughout (with an emphasis on keeping with tradition) to include new toilets and a magnificent full length window where customers can sit and “watch the world go by” while enjoying the friendly atmosphere in our lovely pub. The front door in the bar leads out onto Ely Street with access directly towards an adjacent shopping centre (soon to be revamped and include a cinema and a range of new retail outlets) and Stratford’s “High Street” where the true magic of Stratford’s Tudor age comes into view. Our aim at “The Queens Head” is for you to enjoy every aspect of your visit to Stratford and to make us your first choice whenever you have the opportunity. “Enter as strangers, and leave as friends' x
