Under the helm of chef Nathan Madden, the quality of the British and European-inspired dishes on offer at The Queens Head have made it one of the most popular places to dine in Dorking. If you’re in for lunch, we love the garlic and thyme chicken Caesar salad topped with dried Serrano ham, anchovies, parmesan croutons and a soft egg; The Queens Head beef burger filled with pancetta, cheddar pickles, housemade bbq sauce and slaw, or the Hampshire free-range pork belly served with roast sweet potato, Cornish crab, lemon balm, crackling and a red wine jus. We told you it’s the crown jewel of Dorking!
If you’re visiting this Dorking restaurant and pub for dinner, we recommend starting with a serving of the breaded halloumi served with green peas, pomegranate molasses and aioli; salt and pepper calamari with a lime and sweet chilli avocado salsa and The Queens Head tasting platter. Then, try a veggie take on the classic with the Portobello mushroom wellington stuffed with Mediterranean vegetables, feta and fresh basil; 28-day dry aged rump steak served with all the trimmings or the Cumberland sausage ring with Hampshire black pudding, smoked applewood and truffle creamed potatoes. This British gastropub also offers a particularly enticing drinks list, so book yourself in to the The Queens Head on Horsham Road in Dorking and try it all out for yourself.
Great food, great service. Really lovely pub with good choice of beer too.
Had the 2 specials for starters and main course - mussels and panfried salmon. Both were excellent with lots of interesting flavours. The staff are very friendly, efficient and professional.
Lovely food and great service, will be back! Had the beef roast, tender meat with a good amount of veg, roasties and Yorkshire pud! Waiting staff attentive and friendly!
