Enjoyed a pleasant evening with quality cooking in this fine old cottage building. Located in a country setting and ideal for a summers evening or a log fire in winter.

Just had beetroot cured salmon with sour dough bread. Everything on the plate worked so well together, bursts of flavour kept coming. Delicious !! My two friends had duck and pork which they said was very good. Highly recommended for food and service

Popped in for lunch, had the pan fried salmon on a bed of mash potato with peas in the most amazing sauce I have ever tried. Food was incredible and the white wine was perfectly chilled. Super friendly staff! Thank you, will be back soon...More

Just had a delightful evening at the Jolly Waggoners. The locals were super friendly and very welcoming. Great food: steak and pork burgers were both excellent, followed by rhubarb 5 ways- yum! The service was excellent too. Nothing's too much trouble. And to top it...More

Hi What are your opening times for food, lunch and dinner? We would be looking to book for four people, one of whom is vegetarian allergic to nuts, and gluten free . Can you accommodate her need with your menu? Rest of us happy to eat anything. Regards Caro and Colin

They are open from 12 till 23.30. They serve vegetarian food, if you ring them on 01438 861350 I'm sure they can answer any doubts you may have. The food is always good quality and fresh.
