The Queen’s Head, Penrith

Queen's Head three course evening meal

The Queen’s Head is part of Ciel Hotels and so, as with all three of our properties, food – and a field-to-fork approach – is at its heart. Our kitchen here is led by Anthony Amos who was formerly sous chef at our Michelin-starred restaurant with rooms, Allium. He offers generous, creative dishes that err on the side of fine dining, using produce reared, foraged, and grown on our farms, hedgerows, and kitchen gardens – exquisite food, but without formality. Where we can’t provide the produce ourselves, we do our best to source it locally and are proud to work with some of Cumbria’s best food producers.
