Lovely food, excellent service and friendly staff. We chose to eat in the garden, which was fine on a hot July day, but you are relatively close to the A1 (nothing the Waggoners can do about that - and probably the reason for the name!). Good lunch, would go again and eat outside or in.

A little lacklustre. Service on nibbles v mixed up and waitress had inadequate English. The Sunday lunch lamb roast was not good enough. A few slices of shoulder would have been better.

Excellent food and service, the lunchtime menu represented good value and the quality of the food was so much more than regular ‘pub’ food. We will definitely be returning.

We went there for our anniversary and were greeted with complementary glasses of champagne. I had the tasting menu which was filling and well spaced, and good value with wine. My wife had certain things she wanted to try in the menu and they were flexible to work it in with the timings of my tasting menu. Great food. Good value.

Food was very overpriced and service was rubbish considering it was nearly empty. It was over £200 for 4 adults and 3 children without wine or starters. Gamon was incredibly salty and despite having no childrens menu and being told the could do childrens portions a lot of items couldn't be turned into childrens portions. Charging £14 for a chocolate fondue was incredible enough to serve grapes with it was beyond ridiculous..grapes and chocolate...grim. The cheese 'plate' was 4 types of cheese (No idea what they were as we weren't told) and crackers, no fruit or condiments...never seen such a poor offering. The steak was nice enough but we won't be returning.

Extremely pleasant, friendly and efficient service from the waiter. We were there for an anniversary meal and had the tasting menu, beautifully cooked and presented. This restaurant is our first choice when going out for a meal.

Lovely meal and waiting staff. We had taster menu with wine. Great value and would certainly have the same again. Only issue is the place looks very tired and dull and is in serious need of a refurb.

The quality of food was great. However we were a bit disappointed that only limited Sunday menu available. No kids option. Ordered small portion for youngest daughter but served and paid for normal. Also ran out of bread - only admitted when we asked where the bread for soup was..never appeared and not compensated. Service not great. Would have liked/expected some time with nibbles (bread and olives) before mains, not at same time.

Fantastic. We've eaten here a few times now, the food is consistently good, extremely tasty and very well presented. Menu choice is enough, but not too much. Slightly tired interior but warm and comfortable. Service exemplary. Highly recommend.
