Nags Head Inn & Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Great Sunday roasts. Amazing cauliflour cheese which is a 'must' to try. Have eaten here several times and the food has never disappointed. Ideal for a special occasion as although not overpriced it is over the average cost but worth it for the exceptional quality of food
Went with friends for a Sunday lunch to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant was easy enough to find and parking was straightforward. They have a real log fire there. I love them in pubs. Our table was ready when we arrived, and they told us we could sit down at our leisure. A brownie point to them. I never liked going to a restaurant to be rushed to sit down, order, eat, pay, and leave because they want to get the next round of customers in the next hour.
We decided to skip starters and went straight to the main course. Therefore, I cannot comment on them but from the menu the starter choices looked good. We all had roast sirloin beef except for one person who had lamb. The food took a while to arrive but when they did they were delicious. Just the right portion size for me. The roast potatoes and vegetables were done perfectly. I was the only one who ordered a dessert. There were great selections with a mixture of hot and cold items. In the end I went for the ice cream. The menu said the ice cream came from a small specialist producer and it tasted great.
Two issues that lost them a few marks. One of my friends specifically asked if she could have her beef rare. She was told yes but when it arrived it turned out to be medium. She loved what she had anyway, so it was all good. The same friend also asked for a second glass of house wine which never came. We were never changed for it, so they did forget. In any case, my friend said that with hindsight it was probably a good thing that she did not have the second glass of wine. She would have fallen asleep in the afternoon had she had it.
It was a very pleasant meal and a pleasant experience. The restaurant was busy, but the staff was friendly, professional, and willing to help. Will definitely come again and recommend to friends.
My wife & I live locally to the Nags Head pub and visit there for a meal half a dozen times a year. The menus are creative and vary regularly with a good choice of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes to select from. We have found that service is always consistently good and so the pub has become a venue of choice whenever we are celebrating a special occasion or have special visitors.
This is one of my favourite restaurants. Peaceful setting, excellent garden, for eating when weather is good. Inside nice old interior, comfortable seating. Not too noisy. Excellent food, good choice, but not too much. Really good service, amusing, and given one dessert, 'to try', which was not charged for. Will be going back.
