About us

The Queen’s Head is a historic grade 2 listed coaching inn dating back to 1835. It is the most recent addition to our pubs, having taken over in June 2011 in conjunction with Everard’s Brewery. We opened the new look Queen’s Head in November 2011 following an extensive renovation project.

Originally named the Delver’s Inn before it got its royal connection, first it was The King’s Head, then it became The Queen’s Head following Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. It was linked to a Derby Brewery long before we came along, did you know there was once a Little Eaton Brewing Company? That was until famous Derby Brewer Offilers took over them.

The pub is a stunning Derbyshire stone building situated in the lovely village of Little Eaton. It boasts some fantastic original features including low beamed ceilings and our recent rennovation has reinstated the original main entrance and relocated the bar to create a welcoming and stylish interior. There is also an attractive patio garden for those fleeting summer days.


We don’t think you’ll find a better drinks selection in a village pub for miles around, with an extensive selection of world beverages including 9 hand selected real ales, with 5 of our own Derby Brewing Company ales, world beers, including 8 on draught and even more in bottle, also world wines and a fantastic selection of spirits, there is something for everyone including our legendary racks.

We also serve a great selection of homemade locally sourced food, all prepared and cooked on site. Little Eaton benefits from a great selection of fantastic local suppliers and we are taking full advantage of what they have to offer. Our menu offers plenty of the old favourites and something a bit different, as well as an everchanging selection of specials. We’re sure you’ll find something to take your fancy on the menu.
