“Imaginative food in a good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

I like the atmosphere in the Nags Head. Its design is well suited to the wide range of customers that it attracts. It probably fits most peoples requirement. The bar and lounge area creates a relaxed atmosphere and the restaurant has a country gastro pub feel. The food was imaginative and substantial. Particularly the steak and ham hock were very good. The house wine was good value. For the price and considering its atmosphere and location at the M25/A12 junction, probably you would have to go someway to find something better.

“Must try harder”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

The Nags Head looks good, is clean and has a friendly trendy atmosphere, but the food was awful. Obviously microwaved (badly) and the menu is deliberately written to misrepresent. Don't be fooled into the '2 or 3 course menu' as its a con. The prices are exactly the same as the normal menu as it is priced 'from £10.95' and not '£10.95', so you pay for each course as per the normal menu. Food was fried in old oil. Complain and return food if you are the slightest bit dubious and then they may up their game. A shame because it is a nice looking place. Still feel sick.

“Nothing remarkable”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Overall I wasn't imprssed. I didn't dislike it here but I didn't love it either. The food was not remarkable but did the job. Small inside as well.
