The display outside advertised jumbo fish and chips for £8.95, when you got inside the menu started this was for the lite bite, jumbo f&c was £10.50, nice ploy to get customers in.... But not amusing to people ordering at the bar who'd walked in without checking the menu.
The bar staff couldn't muster a smile if his life depended on it, didnt enquiry if we had enjoyed our meals, appeared not to care in the slightest. My drink was flat so I returned it to the bar, and he emptied half into another glass then topped it up.
We ordered pie, chips and peas, the peas were put of a tin and tasteless and gravy was cold and full of grease.
On a positive note the pie was lovely but wouldnt make me visit again......ever.

We live close to the Peak District and often have breakfast out at the weekend. I have to say that the Nag's Head breakfast is one of the best. Fabulous sausage, lean smoked bacon, good black pudding, tomato and egg cooked to perfection, all served with a cafetiere of coffee. What more could you want on a Sunday morning?

Had 2 courses and drinks at the Nags Head. My food was reasonable but nothing special, while hubby's had mixed reactions. We did not find the staff very friendly and there was not much atmosphere. Hubby enjoyed the real ale though.

We started a weeks stay in Castleton with an evening in Ye olde Naggs Head.We enjoyed a lovely pub meal,all 4 of us ordered different meals and they were all delicious.All cooked fresh to order.We then joined in with the quiz during which free food was brought around (sandwiches,sausage rolls,chips) sadly we were too full to indulge.Food was great,staff very hospitable.Definitely recommend an evening here if you are in the vicinity.

We have previously eaten at the pub for lunch and really enjoyed the sausage and mash so we decided to eat dinner there one evening. We sat in the upstairs section which I don't think has as good as an atmosphere as downstairs, this also wasnt helped by the same album being played on loop. We picked off the specials board and were overall quite disappointed with the food. The squid looked like it had been fried earlier on in the day and reheated. The duck breast was overcooked and the vegetables looked like had come out of a pre-prepared bag. The meal was slightly salvaged by a delicious aero mint cheesecake but our other dessert was a very runny eton mess. Considering we were paying normal restaurant prices I don't think it was value for money. Service was good however and would return but only for a pub lunch!
