Reviews - The Nags Head

4Self Classified Bed and Breakfast Ratings explained
London Road, , , Great Missenden, HP16 0DG
The Nags Head in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire is a traditional 15th century pub and Inn situated along the valley of the River Misbourne in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. Great Missenden is a large village in the valley of the River Misbourne in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire between Amersham and Wendover.

It closely adjoins the villages of Little Missenden and Prestwood. Great Missenden at the head of the Misbourne valley is an attractive small town, with a long curving High Street of half timbered and Georgian shops, a graciously proportioned Baptist Church and a number of traditional pubs. Church Street is full of interesting old houses and leads, via a bridge over the by - pass, to the mainly 14th century Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul. Great Missenden has been host to a variety of famous people over the centuries, including Robert Louis Stevenson (author of Treasure Island). The village is now best known as home to the late Roald Dahl, the internationally famous children's author.

The newly refurbished Nags Head keeps all of its original features, including a large inglenook fireplace and old oak beams, but there's a new bar, a new kitchen and stylish new furnishings throughout. Known for its fine dining, The Nags Head serves a new menu of English and French fusion cooking.

A Few Changes
I last visited the Nag's Head 25 years ago and it has certainly changed. A really careful and thorough refurbishment make it an excellent base for a short stay. Also to be recommended are the lovely food and very friendly, welcoming staff. The room we stayed in was comfortable, clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated; not huge but not cramped either, just as you would expect in a country pub. For information, it's just under a mile from Gt Missenden itself and there are no streetlights for most of the way, though there is a footpath.

The Nags Head
Didn't actually stay here because Laterooms had double booked so no roooms were available, however the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful and even offered to find me alternative accomodation. I had an email confirming the cancellation in minutes - if the customer service is anything to go by then I'll be staying next time I'm in the area

Lovely place to stay
We had an excellent stop-over. Staff were welcoming & helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. Our meals in the restaurant were of a very good quality and the evening dining experience was very enjoyable.

Great Stopover
Very pleased with service, lovely warm welcome. Had not booked for a meal but were given an early table that suited us. Excellent food. french influence, but plenty of food on plate!
Bar area decorated with Quentin Blake illustrations from Roald Dahl books. It was apparently Dahl's local inn.
Room over bar but after 11pm, very quiet, so no problems getting to sleep. Excellent facilities in room and great ensuite. If you are a "Big Friendly Giant", watch out for the low ceiling as you enter the room!
