My husband, in laws and a friend stayed at the Nags Head for 2 nights. This is the second time my husband and I have stayed there. The rooms are lovely, with oak beams and modern style mirrored furniture. The food is outstanding with excellent service from the staff. A lovely atmosphere in the bar/restaurant, and a heated seating area...

We stopped at the Nags Head for Sunday lunch very late on a Sunday afternoon (more like early dinner). They serve Sunday until 7pm. The service and food were fabulous. My husband particularly enjoyed the duck parfait and the roast beef and lamb were excellent. It's always good to get vegetables cooked correctly too. I loved the ambience of this...

I have to start by saying I have stayed a number of times at this pub and have always enjoyed my stay. Its close to my head office and I come down for meetings. However something has changed, I phoned to book my normal room and restaurant booking but instead of taking my name I was pressed for practically my...

We stayed for 2 nights in room 6, a small room at the rear of the hotel, very quiet stay. It was very interesting using the toilet, situated in a very narrow area, if you were a little on the 'large' side forget this room, you would need to find another toilet! The bed was ok, although the wooden frame...

Great evening last night with excellent food, great wine recommendations and top service from the front of house team. It was only second time we have eaten there in the last couple months but got a great welcome and a relaxed friendly service throughout. Definitely recommend here for a great meal.

This is a lovely little place, the staff are amazing, the food even better, however the room we stayed in was disappointing. We have booked to stay in dozens of hotels up and down the country, and keep them all withing a price range and have stayed in some stunning places. This hotel was a little more than what we...

Friendly, welcoming, efficient staff, comfortable room and pleasant decor, very comfy bed, great breakfast and a superb dinner what's not to like! I suppose it might be noisy if busy or full, but we were there on a Sunday night and last food orders were at 7.00 so it was a peaceful evening.

The age and location of this beautiful old country pub makes it a very desirable place to stay. It is located on a fairly quiet road and therefore traffic noise is not really an issue at the time of year we stayed there. Our room overlooked the back of the pub, was very quiet and the view picturesque. The room...

From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Siobhan on Friday afternoon to checking out Sunday morning, everything was perfect. We were down to visit my daughter and boyfriend in Wycombe but didn't want to impose on them and wanted a bit of a treat for ourselves. The room was small but perfectly fine for a couple of nights...
