Old and authentic pub, friendly service if a little harassed. The sunday lunch was fine rather than fantastic .

Used to come here as a child, and came here not too long ago and everything is as good as I remember. Lovely food, especially for the children and polite staff. Good pub to visit as a family especially if you want a good meal (we visited in the evening).

We have visited this country inn over many years with close friends, and decided we should try the Waldegrave again as we knew there had been ownership changes. A most disappointing dinner with limited Dinner menu(no fish or sirloin steak)available and cold rump steaks & overcooked chips served Our starters were also poor with heavily breaded budget whitebait and prawn...

First visit and was not disappointed. Lovely old pub smartly decorated with welcoming staff. We were a party of 6 one of which was a child, the Sunday Lunch menu was either 2 or 3 courses, homemade soup or pate to start, choice of lamb beef or pork, with an apple and Brie tart as a veggie option. The food... More

Came in last night with the wife as we hadn't eaten in here for a while. The presentation was top notch. Atmosphere was good. My faggot starter was unbelievable and I can't stop raving about these faggots. I asked for more faggot gravy and the chef said he would be delighted to knock out more faggot gravy so that I...

We had been here once before a while ago and enjoyed it so thought we would try it again. The pub was very quiet with nobody else eating but this wasnt an issue. The menu was quite limited with not many evening main choices maybe because there's not much trade in the week? The lady who served us was lovely.... More

A group of 8 Walkers fell upon this great Pub following a very tiring walk around the area of East Harptree. I chose the London's Pride beer - perfect - kept well and served well. Our food order were taken and the Roast Meals delivered promptly by a charming waitress. It's a small country pub, full of character - off... More

We have been coming to this pub for many years and enjoyed very many wonderful meals. We have recently visited and were dismayed by our experience, how can a pub that was so good be so changed. Firstly the menu now consists of really basic food such as burgers, no fine dinning anymore and secondly I would enjoy a burger... More

I visited this pub some years ago with my family & had a pleasant meal then, so decided to go back again to see if it had changed. We found that the standards had been maintained & that the food was still very good & the prices were very reasonable. The pub itself has a lot of character & is... More
