I have to say that I was a little surprised to read the latest reviews for this pub. We had a meal here on Monday 18th August and couldn’t fault it. The pub is what I would class as a typical traditional local pub, yes it’s a little dark and has a more old fashioned feel to it unlike your... More

Not been to this pub for a long time but went for a meal with friends and very disappointing as seemed neglected and in need of modernisation. Food was OK but nothing special, a bit pricey for a run down pub. Its owners, presume a chain, should invest and make-it worth a visit again, until then we shall leave it... More

The food is basic home cooking which was reasonable. Unfortunately the more expensive cuts of meat and other improved items on the menu also suffer from the 'home cooking' method and presentation. The Waggon and Horses is trying to be a little more that it is actually capable of. The Gluten Free aspects of the menu is good and is... More

This is a pub that is past its sell by date, you walk in and your feet stick to the black dirt covering the once red carpet, the walls and furnishings all need decoration and replacement, it is all sticky and unpleasant. The food is very average and again a tired menu offering little to wet the appetite. On the... More

Dear drfcok I am so sorry that your visit to The Waggon and Horses was not a pleasurable experience for you as I can see based on your review. My husband remembers your brief visit as it was he who greeted you as you entered the pub with a lady and one child and your dog. Unfortunately we do not... More

This pub was recommended to me by a friend. We are a family of 8 and 3 of us are GF. The choice for GF is the best I have ever seen and the staff are certainly up on this. For once we can go out and eat what every one else is eating with no fuss and not expect... More

Dear ChocolateBec Wow what a lovely review. Thankyou! It is brilliant to know from customers such as yourself that our efforts are being rewarded via your satisfaction. Gluten free is an area which we feel strongly about as we believe - like you - that choices for eating out should not be limited to jacket potatoes and salad. We look... More

My family and I had dinner in this pub last Sunday and I cannot rave about it enough. The food was lovely - a beautifully cooked Sunday dinner that I would highly recommend. All our portions were generous (including the kids') and the two meat option on the roast went down well. The Bakewell tart we had for dessert was... More

We go here fairly regularly but first time since new menu. This is our favourite place to eat locally. The food is fab and the staff are all lovely. You can't find a better place to go around here. Loving the Goats Cheese and Black Pudding Fritter and the Fish and Chips. This is the place to go!!

I telephoned the pub the day before Father's Day hoping that they would have a table for 3, for Father's Day. I had been searching online for somewhere that catered for a 'gluten free' diet and a choice of more than the usual 'carvery' and boring 'ice cream' for dessert. The gentleman who answered the telephone told me that they... More
