Restaurant staff were pleasant, friendly and attentive without being overly so. The atmosphere was good. It was good to be able to talk with our friends who we had not seen for a long time without loud music belting out. We were allowed to sit and talk without being forced to leave stayed until quiet late. Unfortunately the food was not good. My wife had the Sea Bass, shortly after eating it she complained that her tummy seemed to be fizzing. So much so that so could not eat a dessert. She complained again of not feeling too well once we arrived home. in the early hours of the morning she was sick and ill. We suspect the sea bass was not properly cooked/prepared. Unfortunately the restaurant was so dark it was not possible to actually see what we were eating. My wife has been unwell now for nearly a week with an upset tummy. Obvisously we can not recommend the restaurant after such an experience and would not go there again.

We stopped on the off chance of getting in here for lunch having missed the motorway services! So glad we did! Obviously we hadn't booked but got in just before the lunch time rush! We very pleasantly surprised! Inside the pub is really lovely. the staff were very helpful and friendly. The menu had something for everyone on it ( my 2 teenage sons were with us) and the service was very good. the food was very tasty. Its nice to see a more upmarket pub that doesn't rob you with its prices. Also so often in places like this you get silly little mouthfuls of food bistro pub style but this wasn't the case. the amount of food was just right and filled everyone up!
We don't live near by but would go again when visiting family near by!

I went to the Nags Head on Saturday night with some friends for a Christmas Dinner it was lovely. it was quite busy although we went at 6.30pm so it was rather early. Staff really nice and helpful. I had Mushrooms to start , turkey as main was really good i was impressed good selection of veg too. And then chocolate torte for dessert which was lovely. All in all a great night, good value especailly for an Xmas dinner all of us thought the meals were great. I would recommend ordering the wine beforehand we got a 20% (it may have been 25% i cant remember) discount which took about £10 off the bill! To finish we had a few cocktails at the bar which was nice. Be coming back again - especially as i live only up the road

Unfamiliar with the area I made a table reservation for lunch in advance. Reservation was professional and polite in response. Busy lunch time period was friendly, efficient and prompt. Menu was concise and varied with a good selection for most palate's. The entire experience exceeded our expectations. A nice little find just off the M25, I would return if in the area.
