The Nags Head

Tel: 020 8520 9709
Been going to Nags Head for 20+ years and tonight decided to
try their food for the very first time big mistake - after 1 hour 30
mins waiting gave up. Service for drinks was slow and with such a lovely
weather wash surprised not more staff on. Ordered food and waited
....waited and waited. Checked at bar and after 1 hour told it would be
there in 10 mins, in the end gave up and cancelled. Poor attitude at bar
I get they are busy but they should have told us that we would have to
wait so long time for our food. As wouldn't have bothered if we'd known.
I visited the nag’s head on Saturday for a drink and food,
we traveled down from Harwich in Essex and came across this pub, we
were welcomed by the landlady flossy ,very, very friendly ,we tasted the
lovely selection of wines and real ales, the meal was very nice.
recommend this pub to anyone wanting and nice wine and meal to chill
The Nags Head
now has an 'Italian Kitchen', run by a proper Italian chef.

The Nags now has it's own web site and a much needed new wine list. This has been very carefully researched by the pub's wine expert and host of their monthly wine tasting events. (Well done Sean. It must have been It's a tough job but someone had to do it.)
sure it's no coincidence that the exterior of the Nags Head has recently
undergone redecoration - after all, every other pub in the village has
done it. (Particularly that Mrs. Jones at number 22.)
odd place. Books, real ales, fruit beers, the decor of the Wheel-Tappers
& Shunters Social Club, a weekly jazz band (4 musicians playing
different songs at the same time) and no food. It also has the worlds
largest (known) collection of notices. There are notices for everything
- no food, unless bought there (they don't sell any), no kids after
19:30, keep the noise down, no pushchairs beyond this point, bicycles go
here. There are at least 3 of each plus the ones inside the pub!
Nags Head describes itself as contemporary and compared with other E17
pubs it is. The simple decor is enhanced by old film and music pictures
in frames on the walls, The atmosphere is generally polite and pleasant.
The Nags attracts wine bar types from the Village area and
beyond. There are no screens, jukebox or gaming machines and music is
piped by barstaff. Warning - this pub gets very busy at weekends so
arrive early to get a seat. Also expect occasionally to wait for
what you may consider to be too long at the bar despite healthy

much as I like the Nags Head I have to say there really does seem to be something
wrong with the lager - all premium lagers are usually flat and quite
often warm, even in the winter!

East end pub with west end prices. But certainly the most gentrified and, call me a snob, my favourite! Only complaint, not the child friendliest (as no indoor area). And whatever happened to the Frulli on tap? (Bottled strawberry beer not the same). With the superb garden and music comfortably the best local. A hidden gem.
