We stayed for 3 nights along with other friends at this 15th century inn as our daughter was marrying nearby. The rooms are all very characterful, unique and very well appointed. The food is innovative with great choice and excellent local ingredients and booking for lunch and dinner is recommended: breakfast was as good as the other meals, too. We... More

A group of us go there every year and have a very enjoyable meal. The food is very well cooked, but the menu is a bit limited. One of the female staff certainly didn't want to be working that night and needs some training in table service. The big shocker was when the bill came. West End prices for a... More

I stayed at the Nags Head for five days this past week. I had a room right in the corner of the inn, which is five feet from an intersection. Road noise was very loud at almost all times. The room and bath were so small I tripped over items and ran into things! Lovely decor, but the convenience factor... More

Poor service in spite of several staff in evidence and few other customers. Very disappointing. The fish was greasy and the chips were not particularly enticing. A member of the party had the lamb and no offer was made for mint sauce.

My husband booked us into the restaurant for a family 40th birthday lunch. We were given the menu and told that they could do most things for coeliacs( gluten free) no gluten free menu was given. I therefore had to try and work out what I could eat. I chose the main course and was then told I couldn't have... More

Didn't stay in the hotel. Just visited for evening meal in the restaurant. Easy to find, even though it us slightly out of 'town' and plenty of off road parking. 'Oldy worldy' type interior, plenty of room between tables so that you don't feel 'packed in'. Lots of choice on the menu across all courses. Friendly staff who seated us... More

Me and fiancé decided to spend our Valentine's here after we had an amazing meal at the sister pub Bricklayers Arms in flaunden recently. We were not disappointed. The room we stayed in was one of the best rooms according to one of the bar staff and it was amazing. Large clean bedroom with large adjoining bathroom. Dinner was absolutely... More

My wife and I stayed here during January and we were met by a wonderfully pleasant young lady. The room was fairly small but very clean and pleasant. The one chair was situated under the wall mounted television which could only be moved next to the inner door blocking access to and from the bathroom. Dinner was acceptable, nothing wrong... More

We had an overnight stay paid for by our family for a birthday. Really nice room - excellent meal in the restaurant - staff very accommodating. Although the prices are quite high the quality of the food is very good. Breakfast next morning was excellent

This must be the fourth or fifth time my wife and I have visited this restaurant over the past couple of years both on our own and with friends. I can only say that it has remained consistently good in terms of not only the quality of their food (they even smoke their own fish) but also their service. Some... More
