The Queens Head was built in the 1700’s and was formerly a coaching inn. It has been trading as a village pub since the early 1800’s.
The Queens has seen many owners, guests and events over the years. If walls had ears we’re sure the building would have some interesting tales to tell. Belton used to be home to a famous annual horse fair, decreed by a Royal Charter. The Charter Stone is just a few steps from our front door. We are sure that the pub would've been an important meeting and trading place during this time. We have a selection of old photographs of Belton villagers in times gone by displayed on the walls in our bar.
The bedrooms at the front of the building have a fine view of the St. John the Baptist Church across the Market Place where stands one of the few permanent Maypoles in England. The annual tradition of Maypole Dancing is kept alive by our local school and each May the children take part in this wonderful village event.
