No 1 London Road in 1919 and 1939 directories.

The Nags Head was purchased by the Cirencester Brewery Company on 23rd November 1937. In its latter years it sold beers from Simonds Reading Brewery.

The Nags Head was situated opposite the junction with Victoria Road. It was demolished as part of the Waterloo development c.1965-69. Before redevelopment the Waterloo was a very narrow winding track less than half of its present width.  The site of the pub is now occupied by the position of the ‘give way’ sign across the left hand lane of the Waterloo coming into London Road.
