About The Old Nuns Head
If you’re looking for a quirky pub that celebrates street food and describes itself as “the Ryan Gosling of pubs”, The Old Nun’s Head is the place for you. This fun pub has it all; it’s covered in artwork murals made by local artists and invites local street food traders to serve its diners. Inside this cosy pub, you’ll find a traditional pub setting with reds and woods throughout, but look out for pops of colour and culture added by the artworks.
Whether you’re visiting for a casual pint while you work (on the free Wi-Fi no less), looking for a Sunday roast or wanting to catch some sun in the beer garden with your pup (yes, this Nun is dog-friendly), the Old Nun’s Head is open for business from midday every day.
Food wise, the pub has a constantly changing line-up of street food vendors coming in to feed guests. When you’re next there, you might spot burgers from Burger Bear or a unique fusion of Korean and Mexican food with Komex. Flygerians are there permanently for Nigerian street food every Wednesday with lightly battered hot wings in a pepper stew sauce for starters and a traditional dish of a jollof rice plate with plantain for mains. End with a banoffee pie or rustic dough balls with icing sugar.
If you’d rather enjoy the pub’s own grub, try the Sunday Roast menu with a choice of rump steak, chips and chimichurri or traditional roasts served with potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. Choose between beef topside, pork belly, chicken or vegetarian haggis. Finish it off with a cake by Cat Food Cakes (don’t worry, there are no kibbles involved).
The Old Nun’s Head frequently hosts live music and puts on themed evenings. Head there on a Monday to enjoy discounted pints of cask ales or have family lunch on Saturday afternoons with the kiddies getting a free burger with every adult burger. The Old Nun’s Head holds weekly pub quizzes and drag bingo nights, hosts comedy clubs and is home to a drag show on the first Friday of every month.
