Queens at Freehay

Gently civilised dining pub with real ales and attractive garden

The good pub guide review

This friendly pub draws in people for many reasons. Some come to enjoy the good food, but those who want a drink and a chat are made just as welcome. In warm weather, the attractive and immaculately kept little back garden is a fine place to sit among mature shrubs and flowering tubs. The neat rooms have some cottagey touches that blend in well with the modern refurbishments. The comfortable lounge bar has pale wood tables on stripped-wood floors, small country pictures and curtains with matching cushions. It opens via an arch into a simple light and airy dining area with elegant chairs and tables on tartan carpeting. Helpful staff serve Marstons Bombardier and Timothy Taylors Landlord on handpump and ten wines by the glass. Disabled access. Handy for Alton Towers.
