“Always Delivers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Visit usually twice each year and it is always well worth it. It is difficult to beat the quality of food and the service at The Waggon

“noreen,radcliffe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

this place is the best in bury for top class a la carte food the menu is not huge but what they do is cook and present it perfectly, they have a great choice of wines and an added bonus champagne by the glass mmmm! so if you want special grub at a reasonable price get yourselves to this restaurant.

“Good, wholesome food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

The food was excellent, and the service was upmarket. The food was prepared fresh, although there was a hint of over-cooking.

“Good but can be too elaborate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I liked the actual restaurant, the menu is good, but be careful what you choose to eat as it can be very elaborate and rich.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Mr H had booked a deal through Travelzoo for a gourmet meal and we booked the Waggon at Birtle on the day. Booked for 7pm on a Sunday and arrived there were 3-4 tables full and another party in the bar. Our deal started with a glass of champagne which we had whilst sat at the bar.
We were shown to our table by a lovely waitress and all the staff were very smiley and helpful.
Couldn't fault the food it was excellent and was a little bit different which was nice. When we left at 9pm there was nobody left in the restaurant but we had an extremely good evening and fully enjoyed it. Will book again to take family back.
