It was like travelling back to the 50s. The decor was shabby and faded and there was no atmosphere. Staff performed their roles in a perfunctory manner and seemed anxious to clear the pub, switching lights off as soon as tables were vacated, wayptchung for...More

We have eaten here a few times and never been disappointed.. the food is tasty, well presented and good size portions. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the pub even though a bit old fashioned was comfortable and cosy..

The staff were pleasant and welcoming. Not too busy but a enjoyable ambience. The fish and chips were tasty but the mixed grill was disappointing. It looked fine but the steak and gammon were tough and really chewy. Generally the other meats were not best...More

The fish n chips were lovely, freshly cooked, and you can even get take away, but the small fish was extremely small, more suitable for a child, and I think this should be emphasised when ordering.

Genuine good pub food, with that little extra. One of the few independent inns, well run, friendly, nice outdoor seating for warm days, and a generally good atmosphere

Dear TripAdvisor, I am a customer at the Nags Head and these reviews are getting two local venues mixed up!! The Nag's Head (Tel 0115 9654885) is a very pleasant local pub serving good food, beer etc---and is NOT 'formerly Woodborough Hall' I believe that Woodborough Hall ( Tel 0115is still a hotel / wedding venue. The review dated 22nd April is not flattering!!!!!! The manager/owner of the Nags Head would be horrified to read these comments (about Woodborough Hall) made in reference to his own pub. I will be visiting the Nags Head next Tuesday and hope to make this unfortunate mistake clear to him. Bob F
