    Diolch yn fawr👌 An enjoyable evening with a beautifull ambience. The service was excellent, warm friendly and hospitable. The host/maître d' was experienced at his job and present whenever needed but not overpowering as is common these days, which for me disrupts the flow and enjoyment of the meal. As for the meal itself, a lovely varied menu with ample choice and the best seasoned steak I have ever eaten. Consider us “Locals” from now on, you will see us soon. Da iawn, dalwch ati. Aled

    We had the Mac cheese and cod bites for nibbles there’s were AMAZING!! The cod cooked to perfection. Following this me and my husband choose the cod for main but sadly it was rather over cooked but we still really enjoyed it!! Dessert we shared the trio of choc -out of this world!! Delicious ! Service was ok, friendly waitresses but could be more attentive in seeing if we required more drinks etc I asked one waitress for some ice and I never got it. We would definitely go back!!

    The food at the Nags Head is fantastic, the flavours and attention to detail is first class. The lamb meal we had was exceptional and cooked exactly as we wanted it and the whole ambience in the restaurant is relaxing and warm. We used to eat here a lot years ago and the food was always good but on this visit it has clearly moved onto a different level.

    Coming to the Nag’s Head is always such a treat - the food is delicious: particularly the starters and deserts! There is a wonderful, warm and welcoming feel to the place and due to its layout, it’s lovely and quiet and doesn’t feel crowded at all. Service is excellent and well-timed between courses. Highly recommend and always look forward to our next visit.

    The food was really tasty but you do need to order extras as the main meal is small on its own .One of our party had steak and she said her meal was cold.The choices are quite limited but different and they have a specials board. The service is very good and all the staff are friendly.
    Nags Head Inn AbercychResponded on 13 February 2024
    Thank you Lesley for the review and we are pleased that you enjoyed the majority of your meal with us last Friday. Firstly, we do not serve "cold" main meals, if you one of your party wanted their meal warmer, that could easily have been rectified if we were informed. Secondly, we feel in the current climate, that we provide excellent value for money, maybe your budget expectations were exceeded. We offer three courses and encourage our guests to fully utilise the menu, that's how we survive as a business and continue to support our local community. Finally, to say that our choices are "quite limited" is baffling. On the main menu alone (does not include our Vegan or Specials menu) we offer a choice of x8 Nibbles/Starters, x10 mains, x7 sides and x5 desserts, and a kids menu! Diolch.

    Lovely cosy pub. Food ok. Was looking forward to some tasty home cooked chips and was sad to see they were just oven chips. Expensive for what we had / quality. However fab service by young people and great to hear them approaching in Welsh language first. Diolch ferched. Would go back but no one in party would choose same dish again.
    Nags Head Inn AbercychResponded on 9 January 2024
    Very disappointing review score, based on the fact that the majority are 5* and our overall recommended score is 4.8 from 5. We used to make hand cut triple cooked chips many moons ago, when we were not an Award Winning gastropub, when staff and utility costs were much lower, and when we were not as busy as the present day with more time on our hands. You will rarely find home made chips in pubs or restaurants other than Fish & Chip shops for that reason, and like the majority of our feedback, think we provide good quality food at a sensible price. I do understand that we won't always be able to deliver to everybody's budget and that everyone is entitled to their option. So we thank you for yours and look forward to welcoming you back to the Nags Head for our new menu. Diolch Yn Fawr.
