We've enjoyed some lovely meals, both evening and lunch, at The Nags Head and absolutely love the food and the welcome we get, great staff, pretty pub with charming décor and a super garden. We also organised a larger party recently for my husbands 50th and the evening went fantastically well, the staff looked after us perfectly and the food... More

Small country inn with really helpful staff. Fantastic menu with quality to match. Wifi really stable to complete end of day emails. Room small but you expect this with a small country inn. Set in the country on a busy little road in peak times. Would definitely use again if working in the area

I stayed two nights in this pleasant country inn, which has a pretty country setting and a big garden. My bedroom was a good mix of traditional and modern - black beams, with stylish modern decor (e.g. silvered furniture) and an equally stylish bathroom with original exposed brickwork. The bedroom had a very pleasant view of trees. There was some... More

Loved our stay in this historic old Inn in a great location to explore the Chilterns. Our accomodation was unique in a very quaint old room, with large ensuite facilities. Close to the roadway we were not disturbed by the traffic. Delicious breakfast served. Enjoyed a delicious evening meal in the dinning room. Can highly recommend the Nag's Head for... More

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
