Myself and a few friends visited one Saturday evening. The owner/manager was really nice, made sure we were served quickly as we were in a rush. The food was great! We enjoyed ourselves. The prawns were a little pricey for a small portion, but I had battered halloumi which was delicious!

We went to the Nags Head with friends for a meal yesterday, it was sooooooo busy, but the service and the meal were very good. We will return sometime soon.

We have eaten here several times before - as a couple and with friends. Generally the food and service is good however yet again we were let down. Prior to booking we contacted to ensure we could use our 'Gourmet' card, we were informed no problem, On arrival we were shown directly to the table and left ........... 10 minutes... More

Not sure if there is a new manager or all new staff that havent had much training but its hit and miss at this place now whether you have a pleasurable experience or a frustrating one. 2 weeks ago we had lovely food and pretty efficient service. Tonights experience was terrible, and i felt like all the staff needed training... More

The restaurants front of house didn't acknowledge us whilst he was on the phone booking table, not even a glance to acknowledge us. His greeting when he eventually got off the phone was poor. Service time was slow, 25 minutes for a sandwich. My rib eye roll was the driest sandwich I've ever had, it's literally just mean in ciabatta... More

Great food and great decor. We have eaten here several times and my partner has entertained friends also. The sea food is particularly good and the puddings to die for. The service is pretty good too. All in all we would recommend this place for social gatherings and for couples as the atmosphere is usually relaxingAs for the price of... More

Table booked for 4 people on a saturday night but our table wasn't ready on time so we had to wait for 10/15minutes at the bar. Once our table was ready, we had to wait 20min before anyone came to take our orders (we unsuccessfully tried to catch the attention to one of the staff). We ordered bread and olives... More

We've visited this place a few times over the years. It's nicely decorated inside, and you quickly forget it's on a busy main road. The food used to be good but it's really gone down hill. My 'wagyu' burger was overcooked and tasteless. The onion rings accompanying it were dripping in oil, and the burger bun was just a weird... More

After drinks in the bar we were shown to our table and looked forward to a pleasant evening with our friends. After 10 minutes the waitress came to take our food order - we said we would actually like drinks first as we had sat there for 10 minutes without drinks. I also asked to light the candle. After we... More
