Pub
The Nag's Head is a quintessential English pub in a village called Haughton Moss, near Tarporley in rural Cheshire. It has been re-mixed and re-imagined by the people behind the multi-award winning Altrincham Market; Mackie Mayor, Manchester and Picturedrome, Macclesfield.

The Nag's Head is a listed building that dates back to its origin as a Smithy in the 1740's, on the trade route connecting the ports of Liverpool and North Wales to the Potteries.

At The Nag's Head sister venues we have earned a reputation for high quality food, delivered in beautiful buildings, served informally. The point? - to make eating out with family, with friends, with kids with dogs accessible, rewarding and part of your 'everyday'.

Expect seasonal changes, kitchen co-labs with our sister venues, glamping, growing and outdoorsy stuff on our adjoining 4 acres in the not-too-distant future.

    Lovely restaurant and atmosphere, food was nice but more variety would have been nice it was more having too choose what I actually liked out of all the menu rather than struggling to decide between a few things Overall good experience though

    Nicely done but not enough light to read a menu at the bar and then very large light over the table thdt was tough on the eyes. I’m sure the interior designer was thrilled but the experience not so great. Flowers on the table were dried… or as my partner put… dead. Again… it’s a look but a few dead gypsophila does not a table make. Set hide was attentive and very pleasant. Sauv Nlanc selection was expensive and dews way off the mark for a £10 for a large glass. I expected more from the wine list and the menu. The menu that was served was fresh, well balanced. & seasoned well

    It's good to have the Nag's head reasonably close to home but we'd make the effort if it were further away; pleasant staff, excellent food, it's a great gastropub.

    We had a lovely boxing day lunch at the Nags Head - the pub is located in some lovely rural countryside. It's very warm& welcoming, with easy access and plenty of real fires to warm the place. Menu was great - cooked to order and tasted excellent. Staff were attentive and friendly.

    Food was decent when it finally arrived but sadly that took an hour and half. It may never have arrived at all if I hadn’t had to remind the staff that we were still there. A real shame as the pub is gorgeous and we had been really looking forward to our visit. Staff didn’t deal with the situation well and whilst it was ultimately resolved we left not likely to ever return.

    Nice pub/restaurant. Good atmosphere. Polite staff. Homity pie excellent but had three fish and chips which we found were disappointing. The batter was overcooked and there was little fish to be found inside. We don't like to complain but no one asked us how our food was so we didn't report back to the staff. Pudding was a type of Knickerbocker Glory. Quite nice but mainly just ice cream which was good. Bit pricey for what it was. Overall a pleasant experience but won't be rushing back.

    After reading a review in The Times newspaper, we decided to try The Nags head. We usually have sunday lunch at The Inn at Huxley. I was dissapointed with the food, the sunday lunch is not in the same league as the Inn at Huxley, and poor value in my opinion. It was ok but nothing special, so i have no idea why it was mentioned in the Times. We will return to the Inn at Huxley in future, or the Fox and Hounds at Sproston, both are better.

    We went for my husbands birthday, I was firstly miffed paying £60 deposit (4 adults,2 babies), so much so I was coming with mum friends, partners and kids potentially a group of 12 people, and no longer coming due to that. Then my poor husbands main meal was missed completely, so we waited for a while and had to start without him so ours didn’t go cold, he ordered pie, they said it would be 20 mins, so would he like the roast. So he had a roast, which he didn’t want. The roast with all the trimmings (half a carrot, and cabbage) was £23.50. Mine was half a chicken and dry, with a Yorkshire pudding. Others seemed to like there’s though. Staff were friendly, and would give them a tip regardless but really dislike being told to pay a service charge of 20%. It’s really put me off, shame because as was excited to make it a regular thing. They do nice classes for kids.
