The staff and service were excellent, but what let’s you down is the price. Two roast dinners, 1 beer, one wine, was almost £50.00. I didn’t feel that was good value to be honest

Awful food that was bland and under seasoned, it was an unimaginative tasting menu and showed a lack of passion for food. The watery wine that didn’t pair well with any of the food and I top of which I was told my starter was goats cheese, after not been given the tasting menu at all after asking I had to trust my waitress and thankfully I am Not allergic to shellfish as what I was told was goats cheese was actually a crab ball, which was like warm and cold in the middle. The outside was dark brown which shows a dirty fryer. I can go on with my negatives but the only positive I have is how polite my waiting staff were. My partners birthday meal didn’t go well at all and left a very bad taste in our mouths

We have dinned at the Waggoners several times in past but found this time a little disappointing. While the food was ok it was not great and not as many choices as previously. Previously we could choose items from the Fixed Price Menu but were told we could not this time.

Our first return visit after a few years' absence. Limited choice of menu and fairly expensive. Good, friendly service and not too long to wait for our food to arrive.

The dishes were classic rather that innovative but excellently prepared, delivered and the service was as sharp as we've seen anywhere. Pricing seemed a little high until you realised that side dishes came with the course and the fillet of beef was double the size of a comparable restaurant. Really great value for money. Couldn't fault the meal in any way.
