Mid-day break in a walk. Good range of well priced real ales. Big menu - we opted for sandwiches which were very good. Pub has been recently refurbed but keeps its historic linkages with the Pennine Way and the Kinder area

Pick and Mix. First choose the sausage then select the mash, the gravy. Finally add a Yorkie? Tasted great too. Lovely welcome from the lad behind the bar. Tasty food and a great atmosphere I highly recommend this pub. Walkers with or without dogs welcome too.

Really nice food, with excellent choices, specially the Carvery on Sundays with the trying to be funny carvery guy haha lovely man and the friendly staff, behind the bar, the only downfall with this pub is the limited parking and the lack of music choice, we came twice the first day was a disappointment as the website said food was...

This pub has something of a captive audience (thought there is another eatery by the station) so bargains are not to be expected here. It is a pleasant olde worlde ambience and there appeared to be a range of real ales but sadly only a fizzy cider (not unpleasant). The fish and chips was fine but no better than you... More

We visited this pub on the basis of a gushing review in The Times. It was the only one they could find in this part of the country between the Pennines and the North Sea . I had fond memories of the Nags from fifty years ago when, as teenagers into hiking and drinking (a lot), this was our pub... More

I ate at the pub following a long walk and was very hungry. My friend's meals looked substantial and generally most were satisfied with their meals. However I had the Steak and Kidney with puff pastry and when I removed the pastry I found one piece of steak and about three pieces of kidney. The sauce was good but I... More

We did the Kinder Scout walk from Edale and after a long exhausting day we stopped at The Old Nags Head for dinner. When we walked into the pub it was like stepping back into the past. Inside we found a cosy atmosphere in a very old traditional village pub decor and our hearts and bodies warmed up instantly. We... More

The pub is at the start of the Pennine Walk in a beautiful surroundings but the food and impersonal service spoilt the whole. We ordered fish and chips and boy, they were so greasy dripping of oil. The service was not particularly friendly (was not unfriendly either) but it made us feel as one of many walkers they have seen... More

Came on a Sunday for lunch, had the pick and mix sausage recommended by the staff and my wife had the ham egg and chips, the chips where slightly crispy but apart from that everything tasted really good, we had a couple of drinks after too in the beer garden. We picked the right day for it then we went... More

I visited The Old Nags Head recently and had the classic burger following a walk to Kinder Scout. Sadly, the meat was of a quality akin to that of a greasy burger from a late-night, car park burger van. I wouldn't usually have minded save the fact that it cost around £11, which is fairly extortionate considering the poor quality... More
