Varied Menu

Well the Nags Head Inn makes for a great venue for a business meal when you do not know what others like, the varied menu as something for everyone. Accommodating larger groups means shifting tables but the owners are very accommodating. A bit of a hidden gem, but it is a destination worth... read more

The Nags is open again, just for drinks at the moment while the kitchen is sorted out, its' not going to be the eatery it was, more a traditional pub grub/drinkers pub type place but good luck to Chris, there's a bit of work to do there

Myself and my wife had a great Sunday lunch here. Full of flavour and a great place with character to visit. Unfortunately I believe it has now closed. Hopefully it will open again soon with the same high standards.

Read reveiws a few weeks ago on Trip Advisor, still marked it as a good place to go. Arranging a mid-way meeting point to have a meal with friends. Went to website and sent an e-mail to book. Never phoned. No email reply. Too busy dealing with house and family problems to do my usual double checks. Arrive today to... More

I met a friend for lunch here one Friday in June 2014. My friend had been before but I hadn't. It was a beautiful hot day so we sat outside, thankfully at a table under an umbrella. We ordered food which was very good. Very pleasant experience all in all. It became very busy during our visit so is obviously... More

The pub looks nice from outside and its woody and cosy inside but it has a poor lack of beers. I would have expected more than the typical cheap pub standard beers in a nice place such as this especially as the theme of the menu and food is Mediterranean. The menu is one that you either will love or... More

We called in here for a meal as we were flying the next morning, the service was very slow although their were only 4 people in the place ! The pizza was ok apart from the chunks of fatty meat, the garlic mushroom came in a white sauce that smelt like sick ( and it tasted like sick too )... More

This restaurant has obviously changed ownership since I last visited and not for the better, which is such a shame as it has always been a lovely place to dine for lunch or for an evening meal. The building was dark, cold, we were greeted by staff in dirty clothes, the waitress needed to wear more clothes and have a... More

Went here to see off a work colleague. There were 9 of us eating so we had pre-ordered the food. When we got there the place was cold, no heating. They took an age to get round to taking our drinks order, a few had asked for j2o which they told us they didn't have in stock 5 mins after... More
