The Queens, Chew Magna, Review

On a warm summer, my partner and I, accompanied by our four legged friend, decided to indulge in a delightful Saturday lunch at The Queens Chew Magna. Nestled in the charming village of Chew Magna, this family-run pub with four beautiful bedrooms exudes a welcoming vibe, making it a true hidden gem for visitors. Situated across from a picturesque church, The Queens Chew Magna Reveiw serves as a community hub that offers a memorable dining experience.

As we entered the pub, we were greeted with a warm welcome and an impressive array of ale and cider options on tap. The sight of Thatchers Blood Orange on tap pleased my partner, perfect for a sunny day. We made our way through the restaurant to the garden, where we found plenty of tables to choose from, each offering a serene setting to enjoy our meal.

The menu, curated by head chef Jordan Meagher, showcases his culinary expertise honed at renowned restaurants such as Bells Diner and Root.
Jordan’s menu features a mix of small sharing plates and inventive twists on traditional pub classics, all crafted using high-quality ingredients from local suppliers. The seasonal offerings ensure a fresh and diverse dining experience, with a highlight being the traditional Sunday Roast (which we will definitely be back for).

For starters, we indulged in the crispy fried squid with aioli hot honey and house seasoning, as well as the birria lamb shoulder with pickled cabbage and lime mayo on a flatbread. Both dishes exceeded our expectations, showcasing the freshness of the ingredients and the chef’s skillful preparation. As we savored our drinks, the garden filled up with diners of all kinds, accompanied by their well-behaved canine companions, adding to the inviting atmosphere of the pub.

Moving on to the mains, I opted for the whole brill with mustard cream sauce, muscled fennel, Jersey Royals in minted butter, and samphire, while my partner enjoyed the hunters chicken schnitzel with house BBQ sauce, bacon jam, mozzarella, fries, and slaw. The brill was a delightful and light dish, highlighting the quality of the sourced produce, while the hunters chicken was juicy and flavorful, with the bacon jam and homemade slaw adding a delicious touch to the meal.

Though we were quite full, we couldn’t resist trying the desserts. My partner went for the white chocolate and peanut butter cheesecake with banana caramel and digestive crumb, a delectable treat that combined rich flavors with a light, crisp texture. I opted for the brown sugar and smoked strawberry brickell’s ice cream, a delightful conclusion to our exceptional meal.

In conclusion, The Queens Chew Magna offers an outstanding dining experience in a tranquil rural setting. The beautiful surroundings, delicious food, and welcoming atmosphere make it a must-visit destination.

With accommodation options available for those looking to extend their stay and make a night of it. The Queens Chew Magna truly stands out as a place worth revisiting. So much more that just a great pub.
