Based on good reviews on this site, we took a detour for supper on route to The Highlands. Whilst the pub was cosy and the food ok (more oven chips than triple cooked) the experience was marred by the service. The gentleman owner was friendly throughout but the lady that "greeted" us had the feel of a stern school matron...

Thank you for your review. I am the lady in question and I apologize if I appeared matronly. It was a very busy evening and as you had not booked we had to find you a table which was done quite speedily. Obviously, I was serving food to other tables when you arrived and asked you to go through to...

Lovely clean room with a very comfortable bed. WiFi ok but a bit slow. Food was fantastic, if a bit pricey. Can recommend the 14oz Barnsley Chop - so tender and cooked to perfection. This is a serious piece of meat so you might want to give the starters a miss. Lovely traditional English pub with a good atmosphere.

Best room we've had pretty much anywhere, so spacious and comfortable. It was only a stopover at a convenient break in a long journey but was terrific. Made very welcome and it's got a very cosy traditional bar. The dining was absolutely fantastic and excellent breakfast the next morning.

We have just been to the Nag's Head for lunch and we are full of superlatives ! The food was par excellance, the wine second to none and the service could not have been better. The only mystery is "Why was it so quiet ?" People are really missing out by not going here. It cannot be faulted.

Each time I have stopped-over here, either alone or with friends, the service and welcome has been warm and helpful. The food delicious at dinner and generous servings, freshly made, for breakfast. Dogs welcomed and easily managed.

Booked a table for 7 for lunch, from entering restaurant to leaving it wasn't easy, very abrupt service, food however was very nice, but wouldn't go again due to attitude of main waiter/barman, shame for such a lovely place

Had a meeting today and Christmas Lunch. Food was excellent everything was hot and everyone cleared their plate. Service was good and polite it was as though nothing was too much trouble. We were not over faced with too much food there was plenty for everyone. The place is clean and tidy and looks like a good selection of ales...

First class food snd drink, just off the A1 near Thirsk. A foodies delight, unpretentious quality offerings at reasonable prices, great beers and an exceptional wine list. Also sells wine to take away. Some amazing offerings including a great South African red, available in large formats for a special event.
