The bathroom was a good size and had a very long bath with a shower over the bath. The real... More

Gastropub with rooms. What a delightful find. The food was absolutely superb and the pub is within walking distance of Great Missenden and all things Roald Dahl. It's a great place for lovely walks in the Chilterns too. The rooms are good. If you're touchy about noise, ask for one at the back (modern part) as the olde worlde ones... More

We picked the Nags Head for location, small number of rooms and it was a genuine restaurant. The room had great character and all you need. Service with a smile from all the team and it was genuine. We looked for to the evening meal which was superb. Thoroughly recommend for business or pleasure and looking forward to staying again.

Stayed here for a couple of nights over our Son's marriage. Lovely rooms, although one has really low medieval doorways, so watch your head. Ate lunch here twice and both times the food was great. The staff really are happy and friendly which is delightful. Can't recommend the Nags Head strongly enough.

The staff were very friendly & enthusiastic. The menu had all the normal choices of roasts and a vegetarian option, the wine... More

Stayed at The Nags Head in June 2016. Food was truly magnificent. Bedroom very comfortable. Would stay here again. Breakfasts are excellent with plenty of choice and served at your table. Evening meals were of the highest quality including partridge, pork, beef etc. Wine list is excellent. Nags Head is 15th century and has oak beams.

We needed to find a place to stay and this place was recommended to book. We got the last remaining room and didn't think further. Once we arrived we felt it was brilliant. The staff from the moment we ran in and needing to leave as quickly as possible were friendly and helpful. This did not change for the whole... More

Very nice dinner. Rather quiet for a Saturday which was pleasant since we got good service and never felt rushed. Typical gastro pub type menu, having an varied a la carte as well as a specials menu. Good choices. Very nice prosecco served too!
