Extension Works Underway at The Nags Head!

Extension works are well underway at our original Brewery Tap!

Works to extend the internal area of the pub began in February, with local Stone Masons Ray & Ollie Walters appointed to carry out the stone work required.

With the extension now nearly water tight, internal works can begin and very soon visitors will be ale to enjoy a more spacious offering at the pub with additional seating for diners as well as more space for social gatherings.

Bradfield Brewery acquired the Nags Head at Loxley in 2008 and since then it has built on a reputation of serving up Farmers Ales in fine form as well as a good homemade food menu. Only being a small venue with limited space, the extension has been long awaited and will hopefully mean more enjoyability for our returning visitors.
