We needed somewhere to stay in York on a Saturday night and this was one of the only places we could book into that had a family room and a single that was in our price range. We had read many good reviews and felt confident in securing a nice place to stay. The young lady behind the bar showed... More

Used to come to the Nags a lot, but stopped a while ago when it started to go downhill. Heard good things about new managers so we gave it another go. Massive difference. Great welcome, food wonderful, and the place was CLEAN. Definitely be back.

We returned for a weekend in York after a fantastic experience at The Nags Head back in August. The couple managing the place were amazing, they catered to our need, involved us in every possible way and it was clear to see they were loved by the locals. The one thing this place is missing is them, a good management... More

Stayed here with friends for a December visit. Lovely friendly staff, 10 minute walk to the centre and comfortable rooms. Landlord was happy for us to leave our car all day after we had checked out which was kind of him. Would definitely stay here again.

Hi this was a really nice B & B close to the town clean rooms and nice food, we tried to get a cab into town and the owner Jim took us, really nice guy and good service. He recommended places to visit and where to eat. All in all the Nags Head is worth a visit :))))))))
