The Queens Head Rothbury, Rothbury


The Queens Head is a family run pub and has been in the same hands since 2001. Situated in Rothbury in The Heart of Northumberland it was built in 1792 and originally known as the Golden Fleece. The name was changed to The Queens Head to commemorate the accession of Queen Victoria to the throne.

In 1877 the then proprietor, Mrs Temple, bought the old building next door and rebuilt it to extend The Queens Head into a Hotel and the ground floor still has the original lovely leaded windows.

Nowadays, classed as a 4 STAR Inn we hope to offer the same friendly welcome and level of service that has always been extended to visitors and locals alike in our well loved Hostelry.

Our family-run Inn offers very comfortable accommodation, fresh home-cooked food and a friendly setting for business and pleasure. At breakfast you will find homemade sausages and black pudding, free range eggs and good quality bacon as well as a choice of cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit and juices.  We cater for vegetarians and coeliacs. All rooms are  fitted to a high standard with pocket sprung mattresses. Each room has an en-suite bathroom, flat screen colour TV with built in dvd, hair dryer and tea/coffee making facilities. A comfortable TV/reading lounge is available to guests at all times.

The Queens Head is host to Rothbury Roots, a monthly music evening featuring the best of acoustic and British roots music with local, national and international performers in a very intimate setting. Visit the rothbury roots website for more details.

We are open for Lunch and Dinner every day with all the pub classics on the menu as well as a blackboard menu which changes frequently. We have Cask Marque accreditation for our 4 real ales and are listed in the good Pub Guide. We have a great wine list and wine by the glass as well as a good range of Premium Spirits and Malt Whiskies.
