Nags Head, Usk, Wales, NP15 1BH – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Spotlessly kept by the same family for 47 years, traditional in style with a hearty welcome and good food and drinks
This remains excellent in all respects' says one of our readers. The long-serving Key family run this beautifully kept coaching inn with as much friendliness and enthusiasm as ever. The traditional main bar is cheerily chatty and cosy, with lots of well polished tables and chairs packed under its beams (some with farming tools, lanterns or horsebrasses and harness attached), as well as leatherette wall benches, and various sets of sporting prints and local pictures - look out for the original deeds to the pub. Tucked away at the front is an intimate little corner with some african masks, while on the other side of the room a passageway leads to a dining area; background music. There may be prints for sale, and perhaps a group of sociable locals. They offer nine wines by the glass, along with Brains Rev James and SA, and a guest such as Sharps Doom Bar on handpump. The church here is well worth a look. The pub has no parking and nearby street parking can be limited.

Good Pub Guide Food

Generously served, the well liked, tasty food includes lunchtime sandwiches, leek and welsh cheddar soup, faggots and gravy, steak pie, sausage and mash, partridge stuffed with apricots, a brace of quail, and puddings such as treacle and walnut tart and sticky toffee pudding.

Bar food times: 11 - 2, 5.30 - 9.30

The food is very good (we had rabbit pie and steak pie) and reasonably priced but note it is served in huge portions. Rev. James probably the best of the beers. Parking in the Square can be bit of a problem but there is a large car park a little further away.
