Steve of N21 left this review about The Nags Head

I was a bit confused by the Nags Head and initially couldn’t work out if it was a pub, a restaurant or a hotel. And my conclusion was that actually it is trying to be all three. The mock Tudor exterior certainly makes it look like a Historic Inn from the outside and fortunately this is carried on when entering the traditional rustic wood panelled front bar with its separate smaller bench seating areas and traditional bar counter. But when you move from this the rustic ambience disappears to be replaced by something altogether more modern and different. The big sports lounge with large pull down screen, lounge settee area and Ikea style plain wooden tables and chairs is more akin to a modern hotel and the large dining room conservatory extension had more the feel of a works refectory to me. And beyond this was a very pleasant large walled patio garden area.
It is a 10 room hotel, but for staying or eating here best to look at Trip advisor for how it performs in those regards.
As a pub the front bar, although clearly largely not original, is a comfortable place for a pint and in that respect there are 5 Ale pumps and Flowers, Directors, London Pride, Young’s Special and Hop Back Summer Lightning were available. So not the most exciting line up , but decent enough and the Summer Lightning was well kept.
Personally I wouldn’t choose this place over some of the more traditional pubs in town, but it was decent enough.

This pub is a lot bigger than it looks from the front, with a traditional main bar well propped up by locals, a side extension with comfortable sofas, and a dining area to the rear leading on to a back yard which is very pleasant in the sun.

There are five hand pumps serving a well kept if slightly unexciting range of ales (London Pride, Directors, Summer Lightning and a couple of others I can't recall) and at £3.45 for a Pride it's one of the more expensive watering holes in the area, though it's certainly worth a visit.

We stayed here last night and can recommend the accommodation.

Really nice old looking frontage with the main bar inside to match. This place has been extensively extended to form more of a restaurant than a pub but is still a pleasant place. A number of real ales are normally available.
