The Waggon & Horses Pub and Restaurant
Character pub and character food, real ale and real food. Whichever way you look at it the Waggon & Horses serves some great local produce, from a simple bangers and mash (Gloucester Old Spot sausages and proper mash, with rich homemade gravy) to trio of rabbit (liver pate, slow cooked leg, loin pan fried with bacon). Or T bone steak, you just don’t see those on menus now but David fancied one.
The proper Sunday roast is a bargain at £9.95 but then the menu is good value for this quality of freshly prepared and cooked food.
Food is served in the relaxed bar or one of 2 dining rooms and with the dining rooms dining rooms seating 28 and 26 we welcome larger bookings. Pop in for a chat about a set menu, buffet or BBQ.
