Waggon & Horses39 High Street
Imposing mock-Tudor one-room pub, rebuilt after a pre-war fire. The wooden bar, lined with barstools, faces you on entry. Seating areas are to the left and right. There is a large garden to the rear. Once a Good Beer Guide (2001 to 2012 editions) pub run by legendary landlord Nick Winnington, and his wife Mandy, until their retirement in 2012. The pub then went through several changes including as an Italian restaurant where non-eating drinkers were not welcome. Thankfully in October 2017 it reopened as a friendly pub once more and now offers a choice of up to five ales from Elgoods and other regional brewers. Ales are £3 a pint between 4 and 8 on Tuesdays. Food ranges from coffee & cakes and breakfast 9:30-11am, brunch from 10:30, lunches 12-2 to Sunday Carvery 12-4. There is also a gourmet food van each Thursday evening.
