The Queen’s Arms, hold a special place with the residents of Orlingbury, The only pub in the village it has become over the years a great meeting place to be with family and friends.
The written first record was in 1827, where the pub was called the ‘Kings Arms’ and in 1852 the name of the pub change to it’s current name, although the reason behind the name change is a bit hazy, with many rumours, we are proud to have Queen Anne’s coat of arms above our door as she was the first Monarch to be Queen of Great Britain, France and Ireland.
Over the years the building has looked very similar from the outside, but internally has changed dramatically, from a collection of different rooms to a spacious area which is pleasant and comfortable to be in.
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, and is pleased to be…
“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, allow it time to settle,which will allow the beer to be at its best condition. The national ales are complimented with the Finest cask guest beers, and also 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.
But the truth is we have a passion for real ale, whether you like a pale ale with citrus flavour or the dark, rich malty tasty of a mild, or something in between, then look no further than The Queen’s Arm, one of Northamptonshire’s best kept secrets.
“A pub worth driving too!”
