The Queen's Head Askham, Cumbria


A pub with a difference in the heart of Askham.  The Queen's Head is a cosy 17th century village pub with bedrooms ideally located in the pretty village of Askham in the Lake District.  


Lovingly renovated to the Askham Hall standard by the Lowther family, discover seasonal 'super-posh' pub food made with produce reared, foraged and grown on our farms, hedgerows and kitchen gardens. Think earthy truffle with creamy artichoke; deep-flavoured seasonal game and home-reared saddleback pork; hand-dived scallops and local lobster; brassicas, herby pestos, berries and orchard fruits. Make the most of the location with an invigorating walk on the local fells, or a more gently stroll along the river Lowther right from the door, with no need to drive anywhere during your stay. Back at the pub enjoy a local pint by the copper topped bar before a refined yet hearty dinner.  Booking essential, with just 9 tables and 6 bedrooms, this is 'posh' country pub perfection.
