Discover our Island Retreat

Step over Abingdon Bridge and join our little piece of paradise on our very own island in the middle of the River Thames.

Surrounded by rushes and willows, our peaceful haven offers the perfect setting to relax with family and friends while watching the world drift by.

Enjoy the highest quality, locally-sourced ingredients in our restaurant, riverside gardens or comfy pub.

Perfectly placed for travellers, locals and tourists alike our beautiful riverside gardens offer a breath of fresh air. It’s the ultimate spot to spend a summer’s afternoon sipping and soaking up the sun, with our welcoming garden bar staff on hand to take your order or top up your favourite tipple.

We offer a wonderfully warm welcome over the winter months too, cosy up inside our comfortable restaurant and bar with a host of hearty seasonal dishes to enjoy.

Whatever the weather, our superb food and friendly service make our island THE destination to relax and enjoy quality time with family and friends.

COVID-19 Response

To all our amazing guests & staff.

As much as we don’t want to, we’re temporarily closing our doors due to the Government’s mandate.

Even though it’s already been said, the most important thing is that we all look out for each other & check on each other. Now is the time to be united, not lose hope, stay positive and keep active.

Please call us on 01235 524516 or email info@brakspear.co.uk with any queries about deposits and future bookings as there will always be someone on site.

We'll be back before you know it, and when we are, we'll be back with a bang!

So, stay safe & watch this space.

James, Manager at The Nag’s Head
