The staff were charming and good but very scarce, I had to call for service several times. A great pity as they tried their best.

Nice local bistro style pub on the outskirts of Brentwood, close to the M25 J28. Decent food iodine options but need to book as it can get busy

What a fantastic evening we had! Firstly, our waitress Laura was wonderful. She gave us good recommendations for food. I had the salmon and king prawn pot to start, followed by the fillet steak which was cooked to perfection! Can’t wait to return

Travelled to Brentwood for the weekend to watch the boxing, close to our hotel we noticed the nags head and fancied a bite to eat to line our stomach’s, with pub grub you never expect michelin star but you can usually gauge the quality of...a restaurant via the dishes they serve, based on that i remained hopeful. I was thinking the toughest thing i was going to come accross in brentwood was the Heavyweight co-main event starring the undefeated Croatian Alan Babic - but the £30 fillet steak should’ve been main event as that was tougher than any fight i watched.. I requested medium rare, i appreciate fillet can sometimes be abit more difficult to get perfect but it really was medium well at best. Sadly uber was unavailable as i went contemplating popping over to peckham to see if any of the local top boys could provide me with a weapon sharp enough to get into my steak, with a bit of plate creeking and table rattling though we got there in the end.More

It keeps getting worse and worse... after having been here a few times today had to be the last time for me. Asked to move tables to a less busy place because of Covid, we were moved to a filthy table... asked the lady to...clean it 1st she threw the cutlery, plates and serviettes on the empty chair while they cleaned it. Lady cleaning sprayed bleach or what ever they use and took no notice or it. Food was extra ordinarily greasy and burnt.. had to use the serviettes to drain the oil as I was hungry. definitely not worth the money or benefit of doubt again!More
