“Nothing fancy, but good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Rang this restaurant at the last minute for an early Saturday night meal. On arrival was shown straight to our table, we were served with drinks and ordering of food immediately. The staff are polite and were very attentive. The food is good English food, nothing fancy, but absolutely piping hot!! (which I like) even the plates, and the prices are very reasonable, the only downside is you feel you have to leave your table once you have finished your food, as someone else needs it (the restaurant is not overly big). But on the whole had a lovely meal, decent portions and not too expensive, would recommend you book though.

“If you enjoy food cooked to a high standard as appose to giant portions this is not for you.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We decided to give it a go and we didn't expect much and we left dissapointed. The ladys duck was tough and chewy. My steak was blue even though i asked for it cooked medium. The stuffed mushrooms were very poor i can produce far better at home. Very very average food. I can think of lots of local places with a lot more to offer.

“Excellent value for money-never dissapointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

I visit the New Waggoners every week and I am never dissapointed. The menu is varied, reasonably priced and always value for money. One slight improvement that could be made is air-conditioning! Its always extremely warm and this can put you off eating, there are always plenty of people fanning themselves with menu's and the staff also look near to boiling point. However this never puts me off returning (know it has others), I would advise booking in advance otherwise you will be waiting for a table as it is extremely popular.

“Disappointed - Will not be returning!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Visited on a Tuesday for a birthday celebration and chose this restaurant as we had been to the Old Waggoners many times. The venue is not that big but is crammed with tables which were all full and the noise was deafening and not at all relaxing. Food was let down by by mediocre Veg - peas and carrots with most dishes - not very inspiring, and the chips were terrible. On a higher note the Steak and Kidney pudding was superb as were the Thai fishcakes but my wife's salmon was let down by a peculiar sauce. Food overall very average and a real disappointment - four of us and two drinks at the bar each the final bill was £90. This was not at all good value for money - especially when you take the surroundings into account - my son said it was like being at school dinners. The most annoying thing of all though was when we were confronted by a member of staff because we had moved a 'Tee Lite' from an adjacent table which was vacated. We pointed out that our table did not have one and we had lit it and put it on ours. the inference was that she thought we were stealing it and she had been tasked with keeping an eye on them - my son took it to the bar when we left! We will never return and neither will many of our friends!
