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

we stayed here for one night after a trip to London. We had a very warm welcome despite the fact that they were hosting at least 40 Xmas revellers. We had had afternoon tea at a famous London hotel so were not really up for the full dinner experience. However this was not a problem and we just ordered what... More

We booked in for dinner with friends. We found the food to be very good but the service was too speedy to the extent that we thought our table was to be turned. The speed detracted from us being able to relax fully and we ended up settling the bill and retiring to another establishment. If we ate here again... More

My elderly Mum and Dad stayed here, it was £115 for a double. Their main complaint was the small room , not much bigger than the bed, with only one chair in it. At their age they really need to be able to sit down. The decor and food were excellent. Overall it felt like hotel prices without the facilities.

I have stayed here for one night, the room was clean but very small. The overall stay was good, the service was excellent. The downsides were it was very cold in the room and in the shower room was dark.

It was seen as very good news locally when the owners of the renowned Bricklayers' Arms bought one of our local pub/eateries a few years ago. Whilst well-blessed with good restaurants in beautiful locations in The Chilterns, the arrival of one more could only be positive ………………………. couldn't it? YES: it was. The Nag's Head "gets it right". Firstly, it... More

I have a 200+ mile commute to work and occasionally stay in the area over night to break up the driving. My husband has booked me in here twice and travelled to stay with me both times and we can't fault it at all. It's great for a business traveller as an overnight pit stop and equally good for a...

The Nags Head is the perfect place to stay. Beautifully appointed rooms, very comfortable beds and a Michelin quality restaurant all in a tranquil country pub. The setting is perfect, the service very good and everyone was friendly and helpful.

I visited on Sunday, 31st August 2014 with friends and family, six of us. We enjoyed drinks in garden and the meals were lovely and service excellent. Great atmosphere. Looking forward to visiting again.

(Restaurant only - did not stay) Difficult to put my finger on why I am reluctant to give this restaurant a higher score, but I think it’s a combination of rather slow service and, for what you get, it’s a bit pricey. That said, good food and enjoyable. Would go again if in the area.
