We were a group of 8 eating here in June on business. The prices are not cheap by any means (£27 steak, £20 kebabs) so was a little perturbed by the price but figured the quality would be reflected. Sadly, this wasn't the case at all. One of the starters that were served (mushrooms with a cheese topping I think)... More

Food was pleasant enough. The pub had no bitter and no rose wine when we visited. Drinks always seemed to cost the same regardless of whether we had a pint of lager shandy or a pint of Guniness. Their stocking system needs sorting out.

Visited recently for lunch with work colleagues. Good selection of lunch time food from "lite bites" to more substantial meals. Despite being a party of 12, we were served very quickly, politely and efficiently. Nice informal & relaxed atmosphere for all ages. Prices reasonable and reflected the quality of food being served. Nice decor and good quality of cleanliness. Highly... More

We took our two children to The Nags Head and we all enjoyed a fantastic meal. The welcome is warm and the service was attentive. My lebanese lamb kebab was seasoned very well, would definitely recommend this dish . Also the cheese covered garlic bread, which the children loved. Ice cream is to die for. Children were catered for very... More

Nice quality freezer food but not a quality restaurant. Tiny muscles and a steak that missed the published weight on the menu

This used to be one of my favourite pubs. However, the food has changed for the worse and the prices are much higher. Mediocre, tasteless food at a high price. Won't be going back any more.

We have visited here on numerous occasions and never had an ok meal, it has always been great. Usually go at lunchtime and service is friendly and efficient. Small dog friendly area, only 3-4 tables, so timing must be right. Very nice restaurant area and menu is in both areas. This is not expensive but more than normal bar prices,... More
