Having already eaten at the Bricklayers arms, which is the sister pub of the nags head, me and my girlfriend decided to try the Nags head for lunch on NYE. As much as I liked the Bricklayers arms, I think the Nags Head is better. It feels a bit more warming & welcoming when you walk in and the setting is lovely, perched right in the rolling countryside in the heart of the Chilterns. The service was excellent and despite the fact they were closing at 4, they weren't too pushy to get us out of there. I went for the fish and chips, which was delicious. The batter was lovely and crispy and the haddock was soft and flakey, just the way that fish & chips should be, with hand cut chips and peas on the side and a delicious tartare sauce. Then I had the fruit crumble and custard, which finished the meal of perfectly as the fruit was a mixture of sweet & sour. Even the bread was great, lovely and warm with home made butter. We paid £32 per person, which represents excellent value.I'll definitely be making a trip back there in the summer!
On the drive up there there are numerous banners voicing concerns about HS2. I sincerely hope that HS2 doesn't go ahead, because little hidden gems like this will really suffer if the government gives it the go ahead.
