“Great base when visiting York”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

We stayed at The Nags Head whilst visiting York for the night and we couldnt of picked a better place. The rooms are spacous,nicely decorated and very clean. The staff were lovely,welcoming and very helpful. The food was lovely too. When we woke up in the morning and shuffled downstairs we was welcome by a full english or choice of cereals and toast. We would definatly stay here again and can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay just out of York centre.

Note * Taxi fare into York £6 - £8

I ate here with My Mum, Sister and my partners family on Sunday 11th November 2012. It has a great Sunday Carvery priced at under £8 with discount for pensioners/children. A choice of 4 hot roasts of the day and as much Vegt as you can pile on your plate! Lovely cosy locals atmosphere showing live sports in a separate bar. Staff very friendly. Always a pleasure to visit anytime of the week when popping back to my 'hometown'. Thanks again. Mark Lewis

Room Tip: Go for Sunday Lunch

I cannot stress just how bad the food was here, most people prefer less on their plate ,so they can actually see what they are eating. My husband ordered steak, and it was hidden under a mound of awfull chips, and hard core peas,When he finnally managed to get to the steak it was to say the least tough and poorly cooked. My meal Lasagne was also just thrown on the plate and didnt appear appetising what so ever. Both meals were left, and we would recomend that you choose to eat elsewhere if you are visiting York, Presentation goes a long way where food is concerned, and as I say this is definatley a case where less is more, should be on the menu. There is also a charge for paying by card.

We traveled up from Chorley Lancs, and met some family up from cormwall. We were met by a very helpfull landlord who took our bags to our room and showed us around. Walked to york city centre which only took us 15 minutes to the minster,and returned about 5 oclock. Towels and a spotless shower awaited us . The room had every thing you would expect,T/V.tea and coffee.and clenned to the highest standard . We met up with more family at night in the bar and all had an exceptal meal, all piping hot and typical yorkshire portions (large) .The bar stayed open until we went to bed, and the helpfull bar staff couldntr do enough for us.The breakfast in the morning set us up for the rest of the day. Got to be one of the best prices in york and value for money, yet still managing to maintain the highast standards.We all enjoyed our time at the Nag Head, and when in York again will be the first place we contact for our stay. Simon Wellerd, Chorley, Lancashire.

Room Tip: dont folow the sat nav. follow a map and save yourself going all round york city centre.

Stayed over at the Nags Head when going over to York to visit friends. Having lived in York previously I had drunk in the Nags Head before but never stayed. The pub was warm and inviting and the standard of the room was good value. Everything you would expect to find in a B&B was there TV etc. The Nags Head was handy for our friends who live in York and was only a 15 min walk into the city centre. The breakfast was great and really set us up for the day. Thanks to Jim and the team our brief stop over in York was made even more enjoyable.
