Queens Head Inn Information

Description

The Queen’s Head Inn set in the centre of the village of Tirril, which nestles on the edge of the Lake District National Park, is the epitome of an English Country Inn. Originally built in 1719 the Queen’s Head has been in use as a Pub since that time gathering over the years all the bric a brac, memorabilia and character you would expect from an age old Inn. Typical of Cumbria’s buildings, the Queen’s has sturdy two-foot thick stone walls keeping it cool in summer and holding in the heat of the roaring real fire in winter. (With Lakeland’s notoriously changeable weather it is neither uncommon, nor unwelcome to find yourself sat in the inglenook fireplace in June appreciating the blaze.) If you are sat in the fireplace take the opportunity to look up and you can see the original meat hooks for smoking meats still in place – although not all of them - as local legend has it some are missing due to the unceremonious arrival of a plumber in the bar, who had shortly before been working in the airing cupboard above!! Earlier this century the Queen’s Head was extended into the adjoining cottages as these date from 1733 this has done little to alter the traditional atmosphere and appearance of the Inn. Recently the original flagstone and floor boarded floors have been exposed in the bars adding to the oak beams and wooden settles to give a feel in the Inn not dissimilar to the days when the Wordsworths owned the property.
