We had what was almost a perfect stay at the Nags Head. The staff were all so lovely, I really wanted to give it 5*s but it's just not quite there. The food was fantastic (we had lunch and breakfast) and service could not be faulted. I would happily go back. The setting is great, building was beautiful and room... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Nags Head for my sister's wedding, the reception for which was also held at the Nags Head. We had room 1 which is a really nice room with a very spacious bathroom. Only drawback is the road and the traffic more or less all night and can be a bit disturbing for some on... More

The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. I had a separate, large bathroom with a bath and toiletries that were all of a high standard. As this hotel was built in the 16th century the doors, beams and ceilings are slightly low but this wasn't anything of a problem for me just worth noting as people 6ft and... More

Passing by and decided to stop for lunch, pub is set in a lovely location and parking is good, initially the service was quick, we received our drinks and the menu but the young lady serving was also wrapping a parcel at the bar, we waited, and waited, eventually getting her attention we placed our order and asked for more...

We dined on a travelzoo voucher, the service was excellent, very curteous and efficent staff, the food was very good with a fair choice and cooked extremely well. Overall we couldn't criticise the overall experience

Great food and service, a place where a lot of care has been put into everything, without doubt with its brother in Flaunden. (The Bricklayers) there are very few better Gastro pubs to be found. There are others of course with great menus but the chefs in both these places have found a solution to excellent cooking. Perfect for couples... More

Four of us dined here with a Travelzoo voucher. The food was really first rate, service efficient and friendly, and the décor and ambience welcoming. Possibly a little expensive if we had paid full price, but as it was, it provided excellent value.

Stayed for one night for a break from London in the twin room (no 4). Clean, comfortable and with a fabulous shower, the room may have been a little expensive but worth it. We had a gorgeous breakfast - really good produce cooked well - and the evening meal was similarly lovely. Staff were friendly, efficient and really helpful.

The Nag's Head look's like an unassuming pub, but it was recommended, so 2 friends and I visited for a late lunch. Inside it's full of old world charm, with low ceilings and beams, although bathrooms were totally modern. Service was was welcoming and efficient. We ordered several starters to share: the food, which was served with a basket of... More

Booked at this 15th Century Inn as we were attending a show at High Wycombe. The hotel is well situated opposite a river and has a nice garden to enjoy in warm weather. Were greeted warmly but dissappointed that food was not served until 6.30 which was too late for us. This was not the only inflexibility shown - one... More
