Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely ambience and staff very attentive. The Full English was tasty and was most welcome at 7pm on an evening. Can highly recommend the cheeseboard. Would definitely go again and I would recommend.

The family and I went for a New Year's eve meal (2023/24) and to be honest I was expecting the usual Christmas fare thrown at you with abysmal service.....wrong. The pub was very busy (as you'd expect on new years eve) and we had pre...booked the table for 7. When we arrived we were seated immediately because they were organised. To keep it simple... Service - excellent Food - excellent Atmosphere - excellent Value for Money - excellent Would I go again - definitely Would I recommend - definitely Found a gem here because if it was poor I'd certainly write about it.More

Visited today on my birthday. Waited at the bar with drinks until a table became available. When a table became available we sat at the table in the drinking area not the restaurant. The waiter cleaned the table hoping to enjoy food & drinks. I...asked waiter if we were ok to sit there for a while and that wasn’t reserved. He said I will ask. At the same moment 3 other persons entered the pub. A lady assistant came over to us and said I’m so sorry but you can’t sit there as this table is reserved from now. Me and my disabled husband were asked to move immediately from the table and we had to stand back at the bar. Shane really because we wanted to sit, relax and enjoy my birthday with wine etc. Very disappointed in your service today!!!!More

Myself and some friends went in for a Christmas meal and the food was incredible. I had an soy glazed ox cheek starter, then the best belly pork main ever, followed by a lovely festive gingerbread martini, it was all delicious! The atmosphere was festive...and fun, the xmas decorations that were on display made the evening extra special and the staff were 10/10! Highly recommendMore

We visited the Waggon for breakfast as it was my birthday. We’d prebooked the table. On arrival we were told we would be seated at high stools. I explained that my elderly mother who has a disability would not be able to sit on a...stool. Although they did change the table we were told that we should have explained this at the booking stage as this question is asked. This is not true. There is no such question at the booking stage. We then waited over 15 mins to receive menus and only received drinks after 30 mins. It’s was 1 hour and 15 mins before our breakfast arrived. They were cold and my mum who is vegetarian had bacon on her plate which she hadn’t ordered. Staff were stood around whilst others were run off their feet. It seems they have designated roles. So if the bar is not busy, the bar staff can just stand around chatting. Very poor service and cold food. Disappointing!More

Amazing food and service. Could not fault anything. The staff there are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Reasonable price’s excellent quality with a good atmosphere. Plenty of choices on the menu with a large range of beverages.

I booked online for 13:30, We went for dinner and arrived at 13:05 and was seated straight away, we was trying for a while to be served with drinks, which took around 20mins for us to receive them, which was nothing special a couple of...Pepsi’s and a vodka and Pepsi. We had our order for food take which arrived at 14:20, which was Haddock, chips & Peas with tartare sauce and cheese & onion pie with beans and some salad. The fish and chips was nice but, the cheese and onion pie was warm, the beans was in a watery sauce barely warm, the chips was mad hot which burnt my mouth as I wasn’t prepared for part of the meal to be so hot when the rest was barely warm! And I don’t even know what the small bit of salad was all about 🤷‍♂️. It was a good job I was in good company and we had lots to talk about. Wouldn’t go again and don’t think I would recommend it.More

Came for lunch midweek and we were very pleased. Two had lunch from the sandwiches, very good, one had Caesar salad, very good, and one had a starter and main from the 2 course 'deal' for £17 also very good.
