Wish we could have eaten outside as the ambiance was better. It was a little hot and stuffy inside. But besides that it was a delightful meal. There was a little confusion with the bill at the end. They didn't apply the eat out to help out discount correctly but once I mentioned it they were really quick to correct the mistake.

All three of us all enjoyed our food immensely. The gazpacho was everything you want a gazpacho to be, particularly on a hot day. The steak with egg was the best steak and egg my friend had ever eaten. I wasn't sure how eggs, courgette flowers and hung yoghurt would come together on a plate without bread or some kind of carb, but it worked beautifully. Oh and the smoked hollandaise sauce was to die for. Highly recommend the chelada for a refreshing take on a shandy/bloody mary. This was all brought to our table by Nuno himself. We will be returning...

We went for lunch / brunch at Nuno at the Scolt Head at 1.30pm on a Friday, expecting a bit of a feast, albeit pub-style.

Although our starters came promptly, the main course took an age to arrive. Not that we ordered anything too complicated - a burger and a steak. Sadly, when it did eventually arrive, the steak order was wrong (a sandwich rather than a main meal). With that said, the food was delicious.

We were there over 2 hours for two lunch courses. We'd hoped to have a dessert too, but had to leave to get back to work.

Great spot with a lovely cosy terrace. They've managed to keep a good vibe whilst also keeping on top of covid-19 rules. Had a lunch with a friend, we ordered some salads and they were delicious. Service was on point and people were kind and chilled. Thanks for a lovely experience!

I’ve been to the Scolt Head quite a number of times over the last two years. Since opening post Covid, it still has the same vibe, however the food seems to have dropped in quality a little. It might just be teething as they get back into the swing of things. Social distancing procedures aren’t the best compared to other pubs

Had a great dining experience at The Scolt Head - all the Coronavirus measures were in place and made me feel very safe, the service was great and very attentive, we had their steaks and I have never had a better steak in my life, I will never be able to have another steak! Once you have tasted caviar..you cannot settle for catfish ever again...

Was only noisy as we had a table of guys nearby obviously excited to actually be out! Lovely pub and weren't hassled at all by staff they let us chat over our lunch for ages, absolutely the best pub roast I've ever had. Only downside was the confusing and I'm need of maintenance loos.

Decent value roast, busy venue, friendly staff. Avoid dessert and be aware their prices on the website are not updated so expect to pay more than what’s quoted there.

The pub is very nice and the roast dinner we had was good, with lovely vegetables, but the beef was quite tough. The pub allows dogs, which is fine, but there was one dog that kept coming under our table because the owner did not keep it under control and I think the pub should have told the owner to put the dog on a lead. I would not go again.

Yes |I would because I like the Scolt Head, but first the toilets need attending to. One cubicle had no light, the other had a broken lock. The floor needs a proper cleaning; I could hear my shoes sticking to it.

Noise level - energetic?! We couldn't hear each other.
The louder the voices, the more people are enjoying themselves - without regard for others in the room. That's what people think, and it's hard to know what can be done about manners. But the acoustic in the dining area is unsympathetic. I won't book a Friday lunch again.

The long table next to ours was moved back against the wall and the chairs rearranged, after our lunch had started. Conversation was impossible. It was an unprofessional thing to do, should have been carried out well before service.
