Overview
The Queens Head is a traditional community pub, sitting just outside the busy city centre of Lichfield, surrounded by local businesses and residential housing. This is a one room pub with a large centre bar, there is a darts throw to the right and a cosy area to the left of the bar. There is a catering kitchen on the first floor and the successful applicant would be encouraged to implement their own food offering. The garden was refurbished last year and contains a large oak booth and giant umbrella with scattered furniture.  A great place to enjoy after work drinks. The pub is famous for great quality cask ale and currently maintains a minimum of 5 traditional ales throughout the week.
