Apart from anything else, there was no Reliant Robin van parked outside ! A shared name is probably the only thing this delightful hostelry has in common with the (in)famous local in "Only Fools and Horses". Apart from anything else, the food is truly enjoyable, and the staff are all friendly and helpful. We visited on an appallingly wet day... More

Really cute touristy pub in the lovely square at USK. We take visitors there more for the experience than the food which is OK but a little up and down. Had nice grub one day and very dry not too fresh sardines on another visit. The Pub closes before 2pm for food and even on a bank holiday the landlord... More

We went specially to the Nag's Head to try their rabbit pie - an unusual dish, but one which they advertise on the board outside as always available. When visiting earlier this year, we had enquired about the rabbit pie to be reassured it is always available, and similarly when making the booking. However, there wasn't any - a real... More

Visited the Nagga Head with my husband for lunch and was really very pleasantly surprised. Service was swift and excellent as were the surroundings. My husband had rabbit pie which he thought was the best and I had ham with boiled potatoes and veg. Everything was served piping hot. Will definitely be back.

The owners were fantastic, very friendly and attentive plus service with a smile .Service was top notch and the food was excellent. Atmosphere was typical of an old English pub..very strong wifi connection. Would certainly go back there.

If you are looking for an old fashion pub with brilliant food look no further. When you walk in it is like stepping back in time. I would recommend the home made Welsh leek and cheese soup. I would warn you that it is a meal on its on. My husband had the prawns and avocado which was also beautiful.... More

The Nags Head is situated in the square in the picturesque town of Usk A lovely spot to stop for a pint and something to eat in this beautiful part of Monmouthshire. I would echo other contributors' comments with regard to service at this establishment. Simon the landlord has always provided a great welcome and cannot be faulted in this... More

This is a traditional pub in a small country town which serves great food. The choice is above average with partridge, pheasant and other game on the menu in season. I had the chicken in red wine which was delicious with saute potatoes cooked perfectly. The welcome from the landlord was friendly and the staff obliging. Being a country pub... More

We booked to go out for Easter my husband and my Auntie. It was at first a shock as I didn't realise that it did not offer traditional roast dinner. Staff service was excellent. My Auntie and I had prawn cocktail to start and my husband had the homemade pate. I must say the amount of prawns was fabulous portion... More
