Had mixed dining experiences here over last 12 months but will not be returning after this recent episode. Steak sandwich was inedible with nearly half the steak gristle and fat. Member of staff described as 'chef' reported 'that is how steak comes and you should expect fat'! Any decent butcher/chef would have trimmed before serving. He would probably say the... More

Arrived here in pouring rain. One of us had cycled all day . We were warmly welcomed and had a late lunch in the bar which was served by the amusing manager. Our twin room was fine with a nice full bathroom and plenty hot water. Breakfast was good ,both continental and English fry. Theres an emergency access door to... More

We travelled a fair distance to the Waddington Arms after reading the very favourable reports about the food and staff friendliness. Well, I'm wondering now if there are two Waddington Arms in Waddington and we went to the wrong one! The pub itself was ok, if a little too 'rustic' and a bit too quiet with no background music. What... More

Lied about the entertainment performing on website. Asked in bar and literally clueless. Fair enough it wasn't the staff's fault but management were even worse to explain. Contacted the band in question and they had zero knowledge of advertised gig. Ok for a beer but nothing more. Can't comment on good because they also couldn't cater for us as well... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We were greeted by Andrew who made us incredibly welcome. We had a bedroom on the front overlooking the square, where we could see all the comings and goings of a thriving, beautiful village. The room was decorated as if it was ready for a photo-shoot for "Homes and Gardens". Verytasteful with top quality... More

What an ideal stop over the Waddington Arms is. It is hard to find somewhere that caters for folk that like a nice quiet pint in pleasant and charming surroundings and this place has it all. Lovely rooms, quiet bar with no music and good food at reasonable prices, not to mention reasonably priced wine. The garden is also a... More

Really pleased I chose the Waddie Arms - I cannot fault the hotel for comfort & service. Only negative was the clock across the road chiming every hour throughout the night but that is not something the Management can fix. I will use earplugs next time and still stay at the hotel as it is delightful

Stayed here for two nights and dined in one night. The quality and quantity of the food was excellent and accompanied by a good choice of beers and wines. Breakfasts were freshly prepared and good quality. All staff were friendly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Room wise you need to think of this as a pub with a... More

We have stayed overnight on a previous occasion - Waddington Arms is a charming little pub in a wonderful picturesque location. This is our second time here for a meal and all I can say is Wow! Absolutely superb! We had Curry Spiced Cod Loin, Saag Aloo & Basmati Rice and it was excellent. Andrew is a perfect host &... More
