I have been coming to the waggon and horses for years now, throughout all the different names or changes it has had and usually it's a decent place to eat.
They usually have offers on - and even when they don't it's still cheap enough. If you just want a drink or even a family meal it's good value for money.
It can be busy sometimes but you can normally find a table easily and it's not too loud even on busier days. The food is nice, edible and worth the money you pay usually.
It's a good place for families and for couples, they also have a wacky warehouse on site for the children and until recently they had an outdoor play area. No idea why they got rid of this, they have simply added more outdoor tables that they cannot fill, even in the recent heatwave they were still half empty - the childrens play area outside was more useful than tables.
I visited the waggon and horses recently, for something to eat and a few drinks. Firstly when ordering my drinks, the barmaid ignored the fact that we had been there first and chose to serve somebody named Ian, who I assume to be a regular - despite us having waited for ten minutes before he even arrived. When she did serve us, the woman I believe to be called Sharon, was the absolute definition of grumpy - she stood talking to her colleague, gossiping and moaning about another member of staff with a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp. When we later ordered our food she made out like it was a massive hassle for us to substitute our chips for herb potatoes, something we do every time we order there (they are much tastier than the chips I promise you) every other member of staff is happy to do this for us no problem. Whilst waiting for our food she barked at my boyfriend that he wasn't allowed to use his electronic cigarette in the bar area - this is a fact we are already aware of - he simply had it next to him on the table and he leaves the bar to smoke it outside. Once ordering a dessert, she complained about us asking for no ice cream, cream or custard on the chocolate fudge cake - she actually tutted at us when we asked for it plain. Now, we come here a lot, she has served us before and is usually pleasant, never overly enthusiastic but pleasant. She was clearly in a mood about something - now I am the kind of person that believes you should not bring your personal life in to your work life, and if you do then you should not take it out on other people especially not customers. As I say she is usually pleasant, but we shall be avoiding her from now on - nobody wants to see someone miserable when out having a nice tea do they!
Other than that I would highly recommend it here, other than the odd grumpy member of staff - it's a lovely place.
