The Queen’s Head on Pinner High Street has unveiled a brand-new garden following a £140,000 investment by pub owner Greene King.
Back in June, Harrow Online posted about the exciting plans which included a new walled garden and a stylish pergola in the existing patio area. After months of hard work, the new area has now been revealed in images shared by the pub.
Operated by local resident and leaseholder Sean White for 11 years, The Queen’s Head – the oldest Inn in Pinner – is known as a community and social hub, famous for its extensive beer range and freshly made pizzas.
The pub’s new garden has seen a small section of its large carpark transformed to make a highly appealing and fully enclosed outdoor space.
A newly built wall now separates the pub’s garden from its carpark. A new raised patio and retractable pergola also now enable use of the garden throughout the year.
An attractive gate showing the entrance to the new garden, along with new external lighting and foliage complete the look, making it an appealing space for locals to eat and drink in throughout the year.
The Queen’s Head’s garden also has all-new furniture throughout to sit pub-goers in comfort, meaning it can host more people than ever before – particularly during the summer.
Sean White, landlord of The Queen’s Head in Pinner, said: “I am over the moon with the transformation of our garden! I really cannot wait for the local community along with our regulars to see it – I think they’ll be delighted.
“With the lighting, retractable pergola, foliage and brand-new furniture – it’s a really comfortable space to be in all year round.
“I must admit, I for one cannot wait for the summer now and beer garden season to see it at its very best!”
Phil Venables, Business Development Manager for Greene King Pub Partners, said: “Working with Sean is a pleasure and I truly believe he is one of the very best publicans out there – his record speaks for itself.
“I am therefore delighted to see our £140,000 investment in The Queen’s Head’s garden come to life. It makes an already exceptional and much-loved pub even better!”.
Pinner’s oldest Inn, The Queen’s Head, traces its roots to 1540, with a possible Ale house dating back to 1336. The Inn, initially named The Crown, adopted its current name in 1715. The historic site’s cellars date back to the 12th century.
