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.

We were visiting Wales for a staycation, and stayed in a nearby village. We were looking for a nice meal to enjoy whilst away and the Waggon and Horses did not disappoint. We booked here mainly due to other positive reviews, and it surpassed our...expectations. The food was incredibly tasty! We would highly recommend the Sticky Toffee Pudding - even if you think you have no room for dessert, you HAVE to try it! The service was also exceptional, very friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will return if staying nearby in future.More

Excellent food - very good quality and everything to perfection. Starter pasta was perfect, the lamb tasted brilliant and the toffee pudding sauce is to die for. Lovely evening

Super Sunday lunch - really generous portions, and tasted unreal. Really cute, quaint little pub and really glad we stumbled across it on our weekend break away.

A charming family run gastro pub set in the middle of Newtown in Wales. The food is outstandingly good, the friendliness of the owners and staff made us feel very welcome. Most of the customers were local I think, and very friendly. The pub and...restaurant spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. I overheard the landlady tell another customer that the pub and restaurant had been going 29 years under them, I'm not surprised, there's a reason for it's longevity it think, evidenced below... We visited during our log cabin holiday nearby, for Sunday lunch. I had the seafood platter to start, 'fish fingers' (fresh pieces of fish battered), fresh scampi and whitebait. All deep fried to perfection, juicy, succulent, fresh tasting, absolutely gorgeous with a sense of the sea throughout! The whitebait in particular was crisp on the outside while remaining fleshy underneath, and tasted yummy. It takes real skill to turn out this type of deep fried seafood with such perfection. Served with a small side of fresh salad leaves in a crisp dressing and a fine tartare sauce. First class! Next came the wonderful Welsh lamb shank, big, cooked to tender perfection in a delicious gravy, with incredibly tasty roast potatoes (crisp and seasoned on the outside while fluffy inside), creamy mash, and a mix of carrots/peas/root veg, all cooked to fresh tasting perfection. A rustic dish prepared with a real touch of class, using local ingredients... Absolutely outstanding! My better half had the chocolate brownie and raspberry ice-cream dessert which she says was soft, melty and delicious. The guest bitter was excellent and just as it should be in the glass. The portions are generous, you won't leave hungry. 2 people with 2 courses each, 2 beers, 1 coke and 2 coffees = £54... yup that's right, £54 incl drinks and coffee!!! Eat this quality of food etc in, say, London, you would expect to pay at least 2.5 times as much, probably more, I would say. This place is a real hidden gem, well worth the visit if you are visiting Wales anywhere near Newtown.More

We loved this place! A real find for anyone looking for a high quality meal and a friendly pub with plenty of character. The food was seriously excellent (think gastro pub with local ingredients and top service) and we were lucky enough to be able...to watch the rugby semi final v South Africa with real South Africans (rather than welshies pretending to be) in a banterous bar next to the restaurant. Top place.More

Absolute perfection on a plate! meal out with my sister last night before going to the theatre. As soon as we stepped in we were greeted with a very warm welcome and it didn't stop there! Service was above and beyond. They made us feel...so comfortable. The food was the best I've ever had out. The spiced soup apertizer was delicious and an unexpected extra treat! We had a share brie and creamed garlic mushrooms to start. Because we were sharing it the staff gave us extra crockery and cutlery without us asking! they just knew how to look after us! For main we both decided to have the vegetarian option which was a goats cheese tart with beautiful veg sides and a moorish tomatoe and pepper sauce. At one point I was recreating the scene from when Harry met Sally! Every mouthful was savoured! It was perfect! We finished off our cheese themed mal with the most amazing lemon cheesecake and the cake base was genius! icecream side was so creamy and flavourful! It was worth every penny and even though I live in Shrewsbury, I'm already planning my next visit to the wagon and horses! Thank you guys for the most delicious meal and and welcoming atmosphere. Like I said it really was perfection on a plate!More
