Awful landlord

Hadn't been to the nags head since last Christmas due to poor health and was disappointed to hear that Alan and Laura had left as we always made a point of eating wherever Alan has worked during his career,but the new young man behind the bar seemed very pleasant and we were glad that the Guinness was as good as ever,though slightly sorry to see no real ales on offer,especially as it is a casque Mark pub.
Another surprise was that the mixed gril is now not on the menu as I always had that but I settled for a steak and my wife had good old fish and chips which took about 15 minutes to arrive.
Presentation was very good though I asked for my steak medium rare and it was nearer well done,quite tough too but not enough to complain about.My wife's fish was a good size and tasty though she said the batter was very greasy which was a shame.All in all not too bad but not worth rushing back for unfortunately.A lot of quality eating places around the area at the moment and personally I think the Nags Head needs to up it's game to remain competitive .

Me and my mate Dave Piits were on our way to Wrexham to watch our team play football. (Newport County)
us had a meal at the Nags we had steak & Chips which we enjoyed
But a couple of young pretty girls also had steaks but theirs were almost twice the size. cant help thinking because they were a couple of hot babes they got the big ones. Not Fair but i guess thats life.

great place !
Good evening,
I can't seem to find anywhere to write a review so I thought I would just drop you this quick email.
We came into the Nags head today with my Nan and 2 year old son for some food before we travelled back to to Kent.
We were met by a very warm welcome into your pub and were treated how I would expect to be treated in a family pub, we were let outside so my son could play on the playground which was good fun for him and then we were served our food.
Now this was out of this world, me and my partner had the burger and my nan had the fish, my son was even served some chicken nuggets which were freshly made and I don't recall being on the menu, so it shows that you can cater for all needs, all the food was freshly made and served with a smile, I will certainly be coming back when were next up your way, thankyou for you hospitality and great experience, hope being new managers and staff for the pub really work out for you.
Kind regards
Nathan Green - Sittingbourne,Kent.

Please cut and paste into your review section if you have one.

Not Good
Disappointed to see the previous tenants leave but as we like the pub we thought we`d give the new people a chance.
Went along for sunday lunch as usual but carvery was awful.Overdone meat,bland vegetables.Husbands steak was only just warm and very tough.Guy who I presume was the new owner seemed very cocky and unapproachable.Dont think we`ll be rushing back

Apologies
My apologies,I just took it from the date of the review that Jackie ate there on the Saturday.Dont want to get involved in a row,just simply stating that Ive always had good food there,and a really warm welcome.
I suppose this site is like trip advisor and other review sites though,one person loves it one person hates it! Each to their own.

Just read both comments below. Phil how did you know Jackie ate on Saturday ?.Her comments are dated Saturday but she could have eaten there any day of the week. You ate on Saturday but didn't enter a comment until Friday so no clues there. The chef has admitted problem with cold air in kitchen.Probably repaired before you ate.

Conflicting Reviews
Some of these reviews make me laugh !I ate on saturday night,the same as the reviewer below and my meal was excellent.I too had the mixed grill and my wife had the lamb shank.Both meals were presented well and were piping hot.Also thought the barman and the owner/chef were very friendly and welcoming.
Nice pint of real ale,roaring log fire and great food,the Nags has it all.Shame there arent more down to earth places likje this in wrexham.I,for one will definitely be going back.

Reply to Jackie (Below)
Hi Jackie,sorry to hear of your comments but please could I address them.I am the owner and chef.I remember your meals well and I asked John,the barman to explain to you that we were having problems with cold air blowing round the kitchen,sorry if this was not conveyed.your steak and the mixed grill were returned to the chargrill to save you waiting and even then only for seconds,and you had fresh chips,not microwaved as suggested.had you again said you weren't happy I would have course fully refunded you,though when you were asked you told John that everything was fine now.we do have a comment card on each table and we put them all good or bad on the wall by the bar,though you chose not to leave one.I can assure you we have very few complaints and always strive to make the customer happy,so please once again accept my personal apologies and if you would like to contact me I would like to ask you and your husband to come back down to The Nags and Enjoy another meal On the House ....thanks Alan.

Really excited going back to Nags for birthday treat. Always had excellent food before fire. Welcome good, wine good. Starter very good. Mixed grill luke warm, sirloin steak and red wine sauce stone cold. Returned to kitchen where obviously microwaved. Steak now inedible. Even the free bottle of wine could not make up for a ruined birthday. Surely when a meal is returned it should be replaced not reheated and made even worse. Return again ? NEVER. Its not as if the chef was busy. Only 4 other people besides us. If only the chef could cook as well as the barmans courtesy in trying to but a bad situation right.

Worst food
Lamb chops on what was supposed to be mashed potatoes . more like mush. swimming in gravy and surrounded with peas. medium rump was more than overdone with tips and peas. Medium rare rump . I DON'T think so ltd was terrible chips and peas an so called fried egg. what joke. My mother had the salmon which was served on top of 5 new potatoes and surrounded by YES! peas swimming in some disgusting sauce. I was last at this place 4 years ago and it was brilliant and i told them so. This the worst meal I have ever had. EVER had. What would Raised say?

Welcomed back to pub :)
Our bike club always had our meetings in the Nags, but after constant no beer, not very friendly bar staff including the landlord- we moved to another pub. BUT after the fire, we were contacted by Alan ( New landlord), to be openly welcomed back to the Nags- which we have done- it's nice to be home after a long time away. thanks

bad
When we arrived it seemed quite good, but as soon as we sat down, everything changed. There was a lingering smell from the waitress, Hannah I think her name was. After ordering a meal, it had been 1 hour; I decided to take matters into my own hands and went to the kitchen. When I got there, the chef was locked in the freezer. The chef was screaming his head of, shouting the fat land lord or Joe to come to the rescue. Joe came parading in, in a fireman suit, and a chain saw, to open the freezer. He cut the lock and the door flung open. The chef jumped out with excitement and relief and gave Joe a big kiss to show his gratitude. As that was our excitement for the day, me and my wife went to the door to leave and heard more screaming, we turned round and Joe was stuck in a bin, but this time the fat landlord had to get in the fireman suit, it was very revealing and my wife nearly threw up. The landlord managed to get Joe out of the bin and we decided we were to go home. We got in the car and as we were leaving, the fat landlord came running out completely naked, there was another lingering smell off the waitress.

to live the rest of your life. do not visit there

When entering the pub we had the worse welcome off the fat landlord he smelt real bad. the food took around 1hour 30mins to come. And was cold when it arrived. i think the chef didnt realy want to cook or hasnt heard of anything called a oven or how to heat something up. the toliets smelt and look like they have never been cleaned i would think a rat lives in clean conditions than this the beer wasnt working and they could only offer us tap water which we was charged for which cost us more than our meal 30!!!!! this is a disgrace for 1 pint of tap water. i also noticed the waitress dropping the food then picking it up and putting it back on the plate. I find this horrible i would not recommend it.

The food was horrible and a young chef, i think his name was Jack or Jake or something like that and he was not very proffesional.
The place was very smokey and people were smoking in there and they werent saying anything to them.
The toilets were hardly washed as seen on the chart the plates were dirty and the beer was warm. I would definatly not reccomend this resteraunt to anyone as it is terrible unless you are absolutely ass-mental

Monday Night 3rd August I visited The Nags Head - that was the second time in just over four months. The quality both times was excellent - real value for money and with such a delightful menu even the most finnicky earter should find something to enjoy. A definate must when I'm next in the area.

Poor food
21st August 2006 after all the good reports we where given they where dashed with the food and drink. Steak was tough,mash was lumpy,coke was flat ,veg arrived 5 minutes after we had started . Overall a very poor meal in all and the Chef sitting in the bar looking fed up was not welcome site on arrival

A Country Pub & Restaraunt with a difference.
The old building has many charming features, including real fires and a warm welcome. The staff are friendly and the location is peaceful. I found the carvery to be exceptional value and the extensive menu provides something for everyone. Children are welcome, and there's even a bunny ranch and play area. The extensive bar serves many ales and lagers, with a phenomenal array of spirits and liquers. The wine list is more than adequate, with something to suit every palate and everyones pocket. We made the journey from Manchester and I heartily recommend a visit and will certainly return.
