“Decent pub with good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We have been to the Nags Head a few times to eat and it has definitely improved over the past couple of years.
There is a good range of beers and the food is good quality pub-type and well presented.
If possible, sit outside as you get great views across Derbyshire towards Mam Tor.

We had a fantastic overnight stay at Ye Olde Nags Head in Castleton nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very helpful, we only stayed the one night in the Peveril room but we were surprised to find a complimentary bottle of red wine waiting for us and two bottles of fresh spring water in the room as well.
After having a full day out we retired to our room for a short kip before going out to one of the other pubs for a meal it turned out not to be a good idea and we returned back to the Nags Head and tried their Mulled Cider & hot Mince Pies they were delicious and we both sat by the log fire relaxing with the friendly locals.
There was ample food for breakfast and once again the service was excellent I had scrambled egg and my wife had the full english both of us were very happy with our meals and the young man who looked after us kept making sure everything was fine with our food.
We will definitely be booking again after Xmas as they are having a special offer of three nights for the price of two which is a real bargain!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Peveril room and you have a fantastic view of the local church and Peveril castle i...

Booked this hotel the day before and was very happy.
The hotel is cosy, clean and the staff very friendly.
Breakfast choice was great, I don't particularly enjoy a full English so usually end up having the continental breakfast but here there were different hot choices and was very nice that we had an evening meal here to which was exceptional.
The room was very clean and nicely decorated and there was also a good choice of tea, coffee, biscuits and even a small bottle of wine.
We had a great two days stay, would highly recommend this hotel.

Had a very enjoyable evening in the Nags Head. There are a number of cosy areas which have open fires in some. The bar has a good selection of real ales and the menu offered a wide choice food and the salmon and burger we chose were delicious.

We booked a "three nights for two" deal staying from Tuesday to Friday in mid-November. We arrived a bit early but were immediately made to feel welcome and settled down to a drink beside the open fire while preparation of our room was completed. We were in the Derwent Room which was to the rear of the building on the first floor with nice views of the castle on the hill.
The room was well-appointed with a comfy four-poster and a bathroom featuring a bath with shower above. It was also nice to see plenty of tea/coffee making stuff plus complementary bottled water and even a free 25cl bottle of wine. Plenty of free toiletries in the bathroom as well but we'd brought our own shower gel and shampoo anyway. Towels were large and fluffy.
Staff were wonderful throughout our visit and were keen to address any minor issues that were raised by any of the guests, even those that came across as somewhat "fussy".
We ate in the restaurant downstairs every night as the food was so good we saw no need to go elsewhere. Prices were reasonable given the quality/quantity of what was on offfer. The cooked breakfasts were also fantastic and kept us full until the evening. Like a previous reviewer we had the "Steak Special" one evening which provided excellent value for money.
Last but not least, the beers. There were six different real ales on offer along with a good selection of everything else. They were all (yes, I did "try" all of them) in superb condition and tasted lovely.
But the key thing was to feel welcome and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff transformed the good break we had hoped for into an excellent one. The pub has a policy of "Families, dogs and muddy boots welcome" - they really mean it.

Room Tip: Ring up and ask.

Really nice room (Howden see the picture!) with very comfortable bed. Lovely towels too. Location at the end of hope valley is perfect for walking. Food was good - we picked up a good deal with 2 rump steaks and bottle of wine for £24.99: absolute bargain

I went with my son so we had a 'cottage' above the pub which was clean and basic things in it - great for a weekend but not that cheap as we had a bedroom each - obviously - I had the bunkbed room as he is lot bigger than I am and had the double. I could barely get out of bed the room is so small ok for two nights but no more. Pub grub ok but should try harder - just lazy as no competition. I know other people have said it was great and pub is so interesting but just a bit lack lustre and obviously always busy because of where it is. Would stay again but do not agree with the 'comfy bed' tripadvisor contribution.

Room Tip: perhaps stay in pub... don't have cottage unless you are using a double or use bunk for kids...
