“Friends visiting from Zimbabwe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We visited the Nags Head on a Sunday evening and had a warm welcome from the landlord. It is situated in the main square in Usk and parking is available in the square. We opted for the scampi and chips with veg - the portions are large and great quality. Our friends found the pub interseting as the walls are strewn with fascinating artefacts. This is a place that we have visited on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed.

“Great menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Looked a little dark on the outside. A proper country inn on the inside, Very attentive staff, lovely atmosphere and a magnificent award winning menu. Cooked to perfection and good portions too.
Well worth going for a meal.

“Lovely pub and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Every time my husband and I 'venture' out of Wales or stay near Abergavenny we always make a detour to have lunch in this fab pub. The landlord always gives you a warm welcome and the service is quick and professional. I always try and have something different from the menu but you can't beat the sausage and mash- 3 massive sausages that are simply divine- and the best creamy mash . The veg may not be to everyone's taste- swede and broccoli -( my favs!!) but its always fresh not frozen. I recommend the homemade soup- thick and delicious with lots of warm bread- a meal in itself the sweets too are amazing - treacle pud is still our favourite.
If passing do drop in - the horse brasses and brass signs make interesting reading too!! Well worth a visit

“Fascinating country pub.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This traditional pub is right on the square in historic Usk. Parking in the square is necessarily a challenge but there is a large - currently - free car park just a short walk away. The pub is loaded with atmosphere and the walls strewn with fascinating artefacts of rural life. We found the landlord welcoming and his attention to details makes this an exceptionally we'll run pub. There is a good menu of robust country food and portions are substantial. A good place to go at the end of a good walk or for a cosy evening.
