“Nags Head dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Four of us dined here with a Travelzoo voucher. The food was really first rate, service efficient and friendly, and the décor and ambience welcoming. Possibly a little expensive if we had paid full price, but as it was, it provided excellent value.

Stayed for one night for a break from London in the twin room (no 4). Clean, comfortable and with a fabulous shower, the room may have been a little expensive but worth it. We had a gorgeous breakfast - really good produce cooked well - and the evening meal was similarly lovely. Staff were friendly, efficient and really helpful.

The Nag's Head look's like an unassuming pub, but it was recommended, so 2 friends and I visited for a late lunch. Inside it's full of old world charm, with low ceilings and beams, although bathrooms were totally modern. Service was was welcoming and efficient. We ordered several starters to share: the food, which was served with a basket of warm bread was attractive, good quality and quite delicious. The fois gras was especially delicious. We didn't have any main courses or deserts, although the menu did look attractive. It is definitely a place I'd like to visit again.

Booked at this 15th Century Inn as we were attending a show at High Wycombe. The hotel is well situated opposite a river and has a nice garden to enjoy in warm weather.
Were greeted warmly but dissappointed that food was not served until 6.30 which was too late for us. This was not the only inflexibility shown - one had to specify when you wanted breakfast at the time one booked in. Also, a check out time of 10.00 on a Sunday morning is very early.
As it turned out, our show was cancelled at the last minute and we decided to eat at the hotel. Despite being fully booked, they offered an hour's slot before a latish booking was due to arrive. As it happened, we were able to have a full 3 course meal without feeling rushed at all.
The food was excellent - a had a crab and smoked salmon starter and my wife the fois gras. For mains I had a filet steak and my wife had lamb. desserts were also very good. I had real ale from a choice of three, the one I chose was well kept.
The room was smallish but came with an en-suite. Decor was unusual with exposed beams contrasting with mirrored chrome furniture and fittings. There was a radio and a flat screen TV and coffee/tea making equipment (including fresh milk). Also provided complimentary bottles of water.
The shower (over the bath) was good - the control needed to be turned a full 360 degrees to get hot water. Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash and Body Lotion were provided as well as a shower cap.
The only problem with the room (No.3) was the poor mattress on the bed. It was soft and when someone moved on one side, the other person was moved as well. Getting on or off the bed there was the twang of a spring (one of the few in the mattress. As a result we both had a poor nights sleep.
Overall, we enjoyed the stay though with a better mattress and some more flexibility, such a stay would be memorable and deserve the final star in the rating.

We have visited a couple of times previously for Sunday lunch,this was our first evening visit.I had purchased a voucher (3 in fact) through Travelzoo for what appeared to be a very good deal?
We were greeted and immediately seated and served with complementary prosecco's followed swiftly by the menu.
The starters proved to be excellent and beautifully presented,especially my gratinee'd mussels.
We both chose the skewered lamb for mains,also very good,although I found the sauce to be a bit heavy. Puddings of creme brûlée and lemon tart rounded off what was a really good meal,the staff were friendly and attentive,the ambience warm and comfortable.
All in all I would thoroughly recommend The Nags Head as being one of the best places to eat in the area and look forward to our next visit (next week!)

One of the first dry, sunny, windless days for two months and we decided to go out for the day. Hadn't been to Great Missenden before, so chose that and looked for somewhere nice for lunch. Well, we struck gold finding The Nags Head. It's a lovely place, full of 'olde worlde' charm, including the excellent service and we couldn't fault our lunch: the menu was varied, all the food was beautifully cooked and presented and they have a solid wine list. Fantastic meal: would definitely recommend and we shall definitely return.
