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

We are locals, and we have frequented the Nags head on several occasions. Unfortunately, within the past few months we have found the quality of the food; prices; and the customer service to have fallen below the high expectations that fall within the said criteria. For example, a family meal for four exceeded seventy pounds and my husbands pizza based... More

Fancied trying here after my Boss said it looked nice whilst driving past. Menu looked pricey but thought if it was good then don't mind. Place itself looks nice but that is were the praise ends. The Waitress was very uninterested and unfriendly. When food arrived there was no asking if we wanted any sauces or Parmesan. The pizzas where... More

Oh No the only explanation I can think of is that the Nags has forgotten it's roots. Admittedly it is four months form our last visit but good grief we could hardly believe our eyes to see the massive price hike, most definitely NOT a cost of living issue as some dishes were at a third higher than previous. Intrusive... More
