There were once more than 20 pubs in the market town of Eye but that was back in the day before the railway came to Diss. Now only one remains but fortunately it’s fabulous, authentic and traditional – it’s got mediaeval beams, open fires, real ales from the cask, brilliant food and a lovely garden – and it’s right in the heart of the town.

The Queen’s Head dates back at least 200 years when the small ale house occupied only a small part of the current main bar.  The Cross Street Bar was a butchers shop until the mid-1900s, the tiled floor and couple of ceiling hooks remain. The Nook was part of the family home.

The garden was originally part of the old industrial area of Eye.

Eye is a beautiful town to visit, with a wealth of historic buildings including a world-famous church and a small castle, interesting shops and, of course, a perfect pub!
