This bright, homely pub accommodates quietly spoken ale drinkers, well-meaning ladies of a certain age keen on self-improvement (classes here include Egyptian dance and pilates) and, crucially, cats and those who love them.
The place is dotted with images of the little darlings, refugees from a nearby rescue home; one of them, Tetley, ‘the village cat’, has a near-permanent place at one of the tables on the front terrace and in a lovely illuminated garden.
The beer-hunters eschew Tetley (and, for that matter, Tetley’s) in favour of Landlord, Woodforde’s Wherry, Mighty Oak’s lovely Oscar Wilde Mild and Nethergate Itinerant, brewed in the cats’ honour.
The Nags Head also offers jazz on a Sunday night, and gives house room to an art project investigating the origins of the Barbie doll.
