Went there with the family, 4 of us. Got the Sunday roast, ordered different options: pork, lamb and beef. All delicious. Great Stickly toffee dessert. + getting a table by the window and close to the fireplace was really nice too.

We ended up leaving without ordering as the restricted lunch time menu was so uninteresting Probably Sunday roast or eveing meals offer more choice.

A quaint and homely country pub. The atmosphere is great and the service excellent. There is a beer garden for the summer months.

Really nice pub. We were a party of 15 booked for Sunday lunch. As it was a big group we pre-ordered. Were very disappointed that, although 4 roast lambs were ordered, they did not have any mint sauce. Might seem a small thing but important!!...More

A stunning 15th century Inn, the Waggon & Horses is full to the original rafters with period features. With three open fires, a library, beautifully decorated in keeping with its age, this pub is at once cozy and romantic. With live music on certain nights, it transforms into a happy party venue with a real old fashioned buzz. The food is inspired by Mark Hix and celebrates the best of seasonal Britain. With a great wine list, cutting edge world beers and expertly kept ales, you will be left wanting for nothing.
