Restaurant was cold as front door was open. Service very slow and food of a poor standard, waitresses very young and inexperienced and staff changed halfway through meal. Half an hour wait for deserts and were told a trainee was the reason. Will not be returning.

Absolutely outstanding service from the whole team especially the effort made to extend the booking on arrival from 4 to 5 people. Orders taken and food delivered promptly, as were drinks on arrival, all conveniently booked to the table. Food quality was good VFM: plentiful and well presented although my Wagu Burger was rather massive with the addition of the haloumi! Deserts were super and the whole evening was most enjoyable. Look forward to a return visit soon. Thanks to all at the Nags Head.

Consistently high standard, like the new look. (Lino in the ladies now looking very grubby in comparison)

The waiting staff were lovely. Friendly, helpful, attentive but not intrusive. We had to wait for a very long time for the food and when it came it was burnt, dry, and completely overdone. They offered to replace it but we had waited too long in the first place. A disappointing evening.

Went to this local restaurant with some friends. Very close to M25 junction, so would recommend to others without having to go into the centre of Brentwood.

When we arrived we were told we didn't have a reservation and when I showed him my OPEN TABLE confirmation he said "oh sometimes that doesn't work here " so I said " so how am I supposed to know that when I have a confirmation " he was very unhelpful and didn't offer a table until I said "well can we have a table then !?.. BAD start !! Then no draught beer only bottle beer , and trying to talk to friends constantly interrupted with are you ready yet are you ready yet ! Fish cakes mostly potato and hardly any crab or lobster , actually probably no lobster at all ! Will NEVER go there again ever !! What the reservation mix up was all about I have no idea but suggest OPEN TABLE contact the nags head brentwood asap .

A nice place for casual dining at a reasonable price. Cool inside and a nice garden to the rear.
