We ate here on a very busy Sunday evening (fathers day) for my daughter's birthday with family and overall had a good meal, however there is some lacking with service and attention to detail. Upon arrival we were given a menu but no drinks menu and as we'd entered via the rear of the building hadn't been anywhere near the... More

Went here with my son this evening, very busy, but we did not have to wait at all. The food/staff/ambience were brilliant. Very clean, all the staff were very smiley and made you feel comfortable. You must try this place, you will not regret it. Very yummy !!!

After reading some of the reviews I was very surprised that there were some negative ones on here. We visited The Nags Head for a late lunch today. We found them purely by chance when we parked in a different car park! We were seated immediately and drinks arrived promptly. We ordered the duck salad, the chicken salad and a... More

My husband and I went to the Nags Head for a meal after shopping. The Pub decor has certainly improved but the food was expensive and not very good. I had fish & chips, my husband had a beef burger. My fish was very small, lots of batter hardly any fish and it was very dry. My husband liked the... More

My partner and I have eaten at the Nags for many years and always find the service and food very good. However, I must admit we had not been for a while and decided to return a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday evening at gone eight o'clock so it was not particularly busy. Firstly, it would appear the... More

We were also at The Nags Head for a family meal at the same time as the comment below. To say they were not busy is extremely unfair. The restaurant was to the roof with very happy customers and wonderful food. The staff were all very bubbly and as every year it was a great all round experience considering the... More

Went to the nags last night to celebrate a family birthday. After finally getting served we then waited over an hour for food. Even though our meals were nice the waitress service was very poor. We was not happy with the way we was treated and when we complained they said they had staff shortage and were busy. They certainly... More

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We pride ourselves in quality service, and it is unfortunate that your experience wasn't stellar on such an important occasion, this will be looked into. Your late arrival during our busiest period of the night did put extra pressure on the kitchen. Our food is freshly prepared, which does take time,... More

We booked a night with this hotel at a reduced price via www.laterooms.com and received emailed confirmation of our booking complete with booking reference number. Unfortunately we were then told by the hotel, only an hour before we were due to arrive, that there had been a mistake on the pricing and they refused to honor it!!! This left us... More

Thank you for expressing your concern with our room prices. Unfortunately, we do not offer our rooms for £1. This was a very poor error made by a third party website, seeing as our rooms have never been offered for £1 on our own website. We are also sorry that when we offered you a discounted price due to the... More

I booked into this place on business. I got a good rate on a comparison website. To be fair - it was worth what I paid - but not worth the usual asking price. Why? Well, I've had to give this some thought. Essentially it is a pub. It had big screens in the public bars and as I arrived... More

We dropped in for a quick sandwich and were not disappointed. They used fresh bread, and not the sliced "plastic" variety, filled with plenty of tasty fresh ham and salad in one and generous portions in the club sandwich. Overall we were pleasantly surprised and would gladly return.
