The Queens Head is a charming village pub located in the picturesque town of Wolverley near Kidderminster.  The pub has a relaxing location away from the busy main through road and has something for everybody. This is a large property that offers two distinct trading areas, plus two function rooms and an abundance of outside space to enjoy the summer weather. On the ground floor there is an entrance which leads to the main bar. This area includes a log burner, fixed and upholstered furniture, along with a darts throw.  The second trading area, the lounge, has exposed beams and brickwork and is carpeted throughout. The U-Shaped bar serves both trading areas and the pub also benefits from a catering kitchen. There are two additional function rooms on site.  Outside there is a large front patio and a great bar area with log burner for the winter months.  Food is a must at this pub with the Wolverley Woodland Trust so nearby and plenty of Tourists popping in for a bite to eat.
