Sunday lunch mid afternoon booking. Roast beef at £23 was very poor meat indeed, and my roast pork was little better - both quite chewy. Staff were very pleasant however although food service was very slow.

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner and presentation was good. Service was bit patchy with no plates being provided with the cheese and biscuits. Ambience was OK but on three occasions staff had to reach over our table to obtain wine for other guests and one had to stand on the chair next to me. These should be more accessible to avoid disturbing diners.

Perfect English country pub. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left it was exactly what I was hoping for on a Sunday lunch.
I look forward to our next visit.

Amazing food, service started off well but they did take a long time bringing bread, one of our deserts and the bill and could have been slightly more attentive, but overall we were very impressed with the food and drinks and will be returning

an enjoyable anniversary meal with my wife. a good menu, although I did have my heart set on a steak, but it being a Sunday it was more of a traditional roasts menu. friendly staff and while I think a little pricey, its a venue I like for special occassions.

Excellent food and service in magical setting. Just felt a bit stung on price, especially drinks with a glass of rose at over 12 quid and cheaper ingredient dishes such as mussels priced at 18. But it was all very well done.

Lunch was superb. The outside seating areas have been really well thought through, tables not too close but no feeling of isolation either. Food is beautiful and plentiful. Service is friendly and relaxed, everything you want. Brilliant.

Expensive particularly belly pork. Greasy, minuscule gooseberry Rissole was pork mince, not potato as waitress indicated Squid overcooked. Too much batter. Salmon first course very good.

Very enjoyable meal at Nags head Inn. We sat outside on the picnic benches for drinks first and then moved in to the tipi for dinner. It was a lovely quiet atmosphere and the food was amazing. We will definitely be going back.

Great service, very friendly staff.
We sat in the Tipee on a lovely summer's evening which couldn't have been better.
Our starter course, which we shared, was perfect.
Unfortunately, although my wife's main course was excellent, mine wasn't.
We were asked our opinion and to be fair the staff apologised and deducted the charge of my main course from the bill.
The desert was fantastic!
Overall we had a lovely evening, and understand that things don't always go according to plan, but I have to say my complaint was dealt with in a very professional and sympathetic manner. Taylor , one of the waiters was excellent, as were the other members of staff.

Chose to sit outside in the canvas tepee with fresh air & view of the garden but inside looked charming & cosy. From our arrival the staff greeting, meal service, ambience, quality of food was all outstanding. Best pub experience we’ve had in the Chilterns since moving here 2 years ago. A pretty, historic, quintessentially English pub to visit with family, friends & foreign visitors.

We ate in the Yurt and spent a happy couple of hours eating and drinking with friends. The ambience is fab with a wood burner and twinkly fairy lights adding a touch of magic. The food was delicious and the service was attentive yet unobtrusive. A special place for a celebration - we loved it!
