Orlingbury is an ancient and historic manor, held at the conquest by Fulcherius, and by his family until 1315 when it passed to Hugh de Orlingbury. The land passed on through the hands of the lane, Vaux, Toft and Chibnall families to the Youngs; and, at some time during the fourteenth century, “Joch of Badsaddle”, is reputed to have killed the last wild boar in England in this parish, the tale continuing to relate that he died soon afterwards from the effects of drinking cold spring water. The effigy in the parish church St Mary’s inscribed “I.H.C. Nazareni”, is thought by some to be his.
Over the years, the Queen’s Arms has changed landlords many times and ownership from Free Houses to Praed & Co, Watneys, Greenalls and now Punch Taverns.
The Queen’s Arms has a very proud tradition
“being one of the best cask ale pubs in the area“
serving major brands like Fuller’s London Pride and Sharp’s Doombar, and also local brewers like Nene Valley Brewery, Nobby’s and Phipps. We believe that to serve cask ale in its best condition you have to treat it with respect and most of all time to settle, to be at its best condition. The national ales are complimented with the Finest cask guest beers and also with the local breweries via the Siba scheme, the Queen’s Arms is as close to a free house as we can be, being a tied pub.
The appearance has also changed, now you will find the Queen’s Arms has a contemporary look with a traditional twist.
