Housed in an 18th-century building and boasting a sprawling al fresco dining area, The Nags Head is a refurbished gastro pub serving modern British food with Mediterranean influence. Its cosy interiors, including open fires, distressed wood furniture and nostalgic artwork adorning the walls, makes it an idyllic country-style retreat.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Nags Head menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Nags Head bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Nags Head in Essex is a 6-minute drive from Brentwood Rail Station.

    Visited for my sons birthday as he loves this restaurant. Great meal very tasty and quick service. Shame I had to ask for the midweek menu as it was not offered. My son loved his rack of lamb. Our food was cooked to perfection.

    All good. Revisiting after a few years gap, still up to standards as before. Very friendly staff in a busy session.

    Starters of Squid and Breaded Camembert were good. Mains - Roasts of Lamb and Beef we’re okay. Lots of vegetables but the beef was very over done. Puddings were standard fare but cheesecake lacked a side of cream. Service was friendly and efficient.

    We were at The Nags Head on Easter Sunday the 1st April. There were four of us as it is half way house to meet my daughter who lives in Kent. We have visited many times over the last 15 years. Three of us ordered roast dinners which were cold on arrival and had very few vegetables. Therefore we asked for more vegetables but a male waiter brought menus so we could pay for more vegetables. We felt that more should arrive without payment and a different waitress brought some hot roast potatoes and some hot gravy to heat up the meal. On collecting the plates the waiter said to me "You had enough vegetables then" as I had left some which Were unpalatable .These had been left as they were so cold. I found this very rude of him. The restaurant was noticeably quieter than in the past and we were genuinely disappointed with our meal.
