Mixed feelings on this place. The good is - Great bar, great food, good wine list, fabulous breakfast. Rooms are clean and fine but pretty basic and at £80+ I would say overpriced. There are a number of sticker instructions around the room including one headed 'Read This' !! The staff were perfectly reasonable, barman did ask 3 times which... More

The bed was soft but very comfortable, the room was very clean with tea & coffee facilities and a biscuit. The bathroom was well... More

Rooms spotless, food excellent staff attentive and pleasant and a great Yorkshire breakfast. Great region for touring with Knaresborough Ripon and Thirsk on the doorstep. Advised to book early for the races what with Ripon,Thirsk and Catterick along with Weatherby race courses all nearby.

It was indeed perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious . The rest of the party all enjoyed their meals of salmon , steak and ale pie , and... More

I spent two separate nights at this hotel/pub. Warm welcome, comfortable accommodation for me plus two dogs. Delicious food for evening meals and generous, well served breakfast. Even on a Sunday evening, the menu was excellent and the food quick to be served and super taste and freshness.

We have stayed here before and it is as good as ever; very good dinner and comfortable room. However, do not rely on your SatNav unless it is reasonably current as mine sent me on the upgraded A1 rather than the old A1 running parralel. It is well signposted to Pickhill providing you are on the right road !!

A few weeks ago, we called in for a week day lunch. We shared the tempura prawns from the starters menu on the blackboard and had a round of sandwiches each. Both were excellent with a selection of good wines by the glass. We were in the area a couple of weeks later and, having seen the mains on the... More

Country pub with a small but clean and functional bedroom and bathroom. The staff were friendly and the breakfast delicious. We also ate in the restaurant which was very good too. We would stay again if in the area.

This was our fourth visit to the Nags Head. As usual, an excellent stay. We especially enjoyed the venison, and the wine Edward chose to accompany it. Our experience has been that, whatever the menu, there will be something to delight the palate.
