I visited The Nag's Head recently, and was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. The venue was friendly, lively and comfortable. The bar staff seemed to enjoy my company and treated me with respect. I will definitely be visiting again!

Absolutely fantastic pub, cosy with a lovely 360 feel to it; but it's definitely the staff who make the trip worthwhile. Big hello to Steve, Chris and Jimmy.
