My husband and I visited here at the weekend. It was fairly busy but the service was very good and quick. The food was very good. It was a nice atmosphere and we would definitely go back.

We booked a table here for Sunday Lunch (would recommend booking as it gets really busy here) and our table was ready when we arrived slightly early. The service was quite slow but the food was lovely. We did find that we had to stop a waitress a couple of times to either ask for condiments or to order drinks... More

I ordered the seafood platter. I was a bit disappointed as it said I was also getting crab mayonnaise and I got a bowl of mayonnaise. I couldn't find any crab.. The crayfish cocktail was nice as the squid was too. Also I had three nice pieces of bread. not butter and it took a while after asking for it,... More

Visited with some international guests for the last two evenings; very good food and attentive staff, in particular the 2 young ladies on duty (one being the owners daughter). Whilst the menu is not extensive, the quality for what could be just described as "pub food" is very good. Left on both nights completely satisfied.

Over the years, we have had many excellent meals at the Nags Head and often find ourselves there to celebrate a family birthday. This trip was no exception. The food lived up to our high expectations and the service was attentive without being obtrusive. The restaurant was very busy as it was a Sunday lunchtime, but the service/food quality did... More

Ate here tonight as it looked lovely going past it on occasion. Went for the sharing platter as the mains seemed a little heavy and wanted a bit of everything. Food was good and selection on the menu is nice but nothing I would say I would have again. Sad part is I came home to have a seriously upset... More

This was not the first time I had visited this Pub and if anything it has improved. Great food at reasonable prices and a good selection of beer. The service was excellent and thanks to Lewis who was behind the bar and mac the management for keeping us entertained. Should you be visiting Brentwood on business or pleasure then drop... More

Went there last night and had salmon and horse radish mash which I have to say is lovely, just wanted more of it. Service was good, staff friendly although through the night my stomach started to ache and have been close to being sick all day, struggling to eat. Might not have been the good but can't think of anything... More

Good all round place to eat. Nothing incredible, customer service is okay and the food average to good at best. Would I eat here again? Probably not. Would I recommend it if you're in the local area? Why not, I'm sure there must worse places to eat in Brentwood however, I am sure there are better places too....
