Situated just in front of the 13th Century Eyre Chapel, the Nags Head itself is also a Grade II listed building. Inside, there are 4 rooms, with most locals congregating in the one nearest the doorway. We chose to take a seat in there too.

Whilst Sharp's Doom Bar is the regular beer, there is a good selection of guest beers. For our visit, there was Peak Ales Noggin Filler, Chatsworth Gold & Swift Nick & Little Critters Little Hopper & Single Batch Cask Specials #12 Galaxy & Comet Session IPA. We enquired about a CAMRA discount, but apparently the price (I seem to recall less than £3 for two halves) was already substantially discounted on a Tuesday. The landlord/lady seemed quite offended with us asking.

A 4pm opener, we arrived a few minutes after opening to find a few in already. It soon filled up even more. All customers were men, mostly people finishing work, but there also appeared to be people who had attended a funeral.

Clearly a popular local boozer, I quite liked this one and would happily return. If the beer is always this cheap on a Tuesday, I know what day I will be returning.

I was surprised to read on WhatPub that this is an 18th century building with Grade II listed status. Having arrived a few minutes before opening I formed an orderly queue with one of the regulars, and we trooped in through the door in the flat roofed extension at 4pm. The bar counter is here, with smaller rooms to the right in the original building. The licensee was friendly and welcoming, and we were soon joined by others of the afternoon faithful. There were six hand pumps, with the beers listed on a blackboard to the right. I tried the Purity Ubu which was very good, and as I had a few minutes before my bus into town I went for the Doom Bar too. This was also in very good nick, but just a little bit on the cold side. I agree with Alan, "a really nice comfortable and cosy pub".

The Nags Head looks pretty ordinary from the outside,its painted white,it also had its old Mansfield brewery type letters in the pubs name.
The main entrance is to the left side.
Once inside there is a small corridor and the main room is straight on,this room is the only one with a bar in it,the room is oblong shaped with a beamed ceiling and very comfortable bench seating,there are two small rooms to the right which is at the front of the pub,bot room had carpetes and beamed ceilings,one had a piano in it,there is another small room to the rear right.
The pub is an ex Mansfield house,now Marstons,there were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Banks's bitter which went down very well,the other bers were Marstons Old Empire,Wychwood Black Witch and Hobgoblin.
This is a really nice comfortable and cosy pub,the sort of pub i could settle in for a good session.
If you happen to be in the North Chesterfield area give this one a go,you wont be dissapointed.
