Welcome to The Queen's Head, a pub with a difference nestled in the heart of Askham, a charming village in the Lake District. As part of the esteemed Askham Collection, our 17th-century village pub with bedrooms offers a cozy and inviting atmosphere. With our recent AA accreditation as a 4-star gold inn and an AA Rosette restaurant, we are dedicated to providing an exceptional dining experience.
Under the guidance of our talented head chef, Anthony Amos, who honed his skills at the nearby Michelin-starred Allium at Askham Hall, our food offering embodies the essence of the Lake District. Anthony brings refined, creative, and modern touches to our dishes while maintaining the warm and cozy feel of a welcoming country pub. Each bite showcases the flavors of the region and highlights the best seasonal ingredients available.
Our regularly-changing menu features an array of mouthwatering dishes crafted with care and passion. Every dish is a celebration of the bounty of the land and the skill of our culinary team. To complement our delectable menu, we offer a wonderful selection of wines curated by the sommeliers from our Michelin-starred sister hotel, Askham Hall. Allow our knowledgeable staff to guide you through the perfect pairing to enhance your dining experience.
