Only three miles from the bustling small North Yorkshire town of Malton it is well worth turning off the B1257 to head for the little village of Amotherby. A pleasant enough place you might think but why take the detour when the heady delights of resorts such as Scarborough are calling? The answer is to be found at The Queen’s Head, not just an excellent Free House but incorporating one of the region’s favourite and authentic Cantonese restaurants in surely one of the country’s “greenest” catering establishments!
Let’s start with a drink after the journey and in the bar you will find an excellent selection of wines, spirits, lagers, cider and soft drinks with a talking point on the lips of both drinkers and those travelling from throughout the region for a meal being The Queen’s Head’s three exceptionally well kept real ales- a Copper Dragon brew and a rotating guest ale. During the summer months there is a delightful beer garden outside with adjoining gazebo and a really good quality, floodlit children’s play area. Whilst enjoying your drink you could be forgiven for wondering why in this admittedly very pleasant backwater many of the other people in the bar are waiting for their table at The Queen’s Head’s authentic Cantonese restaurant, renowned for miles around. On booking a table and taking your seat in the restaurant the answer becomes immediately apparent!
This is a very comfortable and authentic Cantonese restaurant with a capacity of around 80, it is ideal for both the party booking or with the bamboo partition screens in place a perfect setting for an intimate meal
