About The Queen’s Head

The Chatter & Natter Table is particularly popular with newcomers to the area (of all ages).

The Queen’s Head is Pinner’s oldest Inn and steeped in History.  Records show that there has been an Inn on the site since 1540, although there is a theory that there was an Ale house on the site here when King Edward III signed the Royal Charter to create Pinner’s annual fair in 1336. We know for certain that our cellars are 12th century. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the Inn was called The Crown; only in 1715 was it renamed The Queen’s Head. In 1872, Eleanor, the daughter of Horatio Nelson, Nelson’s only daughter, was killed by a bolting horse outside The Queen’s Head. She was unmarried and predeceased her mother. It is said that her benevolent ghost still roams the rooms of the pub. Both Eleanor and Horatia are buried locally.
