“Wonderful”

Visited for a birthday meal for my boyfriend and everything was simply perfect; the food, the wine and the service were all first class and we will certainly be back. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

“Surprise Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Staying outside Abingdon for a romantic weekend break we decided to visit the town, (a little disappointing) and found the Nags Head by accident but thought we'd have some lunch. What a lovely surprise, the location is fantastic as the pub opens up once inside and gives great views of the Thames, very much in flood at the time. The river flows under the pub as it is built on the bridge/island and you can see the water flowing from a low window under the stairs.
The service was first class, especially from the gorgeous Izzy who looked after us, answered all of our silly questions but smiled and laughed throughout. The food was delicious and well priced. Whilst we loved our meal we are nosey and watched each plate as it came out and everything looked delicious. We were a long way from home but would absolutely love to visit again.

“Best summer pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The Nags head has been decorated very well, it feels bright and fresh, but keeps all the pub charm.
If you are after good pub comfort food then The Nags Head caters perfectly, The garden and outside space is perfect for a drink or meal in the summer. They also do a BBQ when the sun comes out and there is great music which adds to the atmosphere.

“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

I've been to the newly refurbished Nags Head a few times now and can find nothing to fault about the experience; attentive staff, very decent food (especially the fish and chips!) nice decor/surroundings and a welcoming log fire.
