Welcome Home to Customers Old and New!

Here at the Waggon and Horses, we are so looking forward to welcoming back our customers, both old and new, It has been a very long three months and we have made some lovely changes to the premises, both to keep our Customers and Staff safe.

We are sure it is going to be very different and may feel a little strange for you, and for us, but please be assured,  we are determined to welcome everyone back as safely as possible .

Saturday and Sunday the 4th and 5th July, our beer garden will be open for drinks and a BBQ from 12 noon until 10pm. PLEASE BOOK to be guaranteed a table/seat. This will also be in two and a half hour slots, and the guidlines below apply.

With that in mind please consider the following before booking your visit.

  1. We request that guests book in advance, walk ups that we cannot immediately accommodate, will be asked not to queue but a telephone number will be taken and we will try to call you if, and when we can accommodate your party.

    2. Bookings are for an initial two-and-a-half-hour period, if there are no bookings following yours, this may be extended but your table must be vacated 15 mins before the next booking to allow for cleaning.

    3. On arrival we will request personal data, this is a condition of entry. Personal data will be held securely for 21 days before being destroyed. Data may be made available to authorised authorities on request.

    4. Due to the fact that everything is outside, we are able to operate a bar service for drinkers. You will be asked to sit/stand socially distanced in a separate area of the garden from the diners. We recommend that even if you are only popping along for a few pints that you call ahead to confirm we have adequate space and enough staff on to serve and keep you safe.

  2. Food orders will be taken at your table by our professional staff wearing appropriate PPE, card payment at the table is preferred but cash will also be accepted.

    6. The size of our toilets only allow for 1 person at any one time, or 2 from the same household, please respect this and queue following the marked system.
    Queue monitoring will be in place, our staff will be cleaning the toilets more regularly than usual and we will leave some sanitising solution or wipes out for our customers to use if they feel the need to.

    7. We will be operating a combination of one-way systems and give way points, these will be clearly marked and we request guests follow the signs, staff will be on hand to assist.
  3. We have outdoor seating only at present, with shelter.

    9. Please follow all requests by our team, obey all signage and maintain social distancing requirements at all time.

Those unable or unwilling to may be asked to leave.


  1. Children are to be supervised at all times, including when using the facilities, due to the chemicals available for sanitising purposes.

    11. All bookings are provisional and may be cancelled at any time by us in response to changes in government guidance.

    12. Opening hours will be available on our website and Facebook page.  These may be updated at any time, so please check regularly.

  2. Dogs are welcome in the beer garden but must be kept on a lead and under control at all times.


14.There will be no smoking in any part of the beer garden, there will be a designated smoking area in part of the overflow area.


We will start a new menu from Thursday the 9th of July, our new menu will be served all day Thursday – Sunday 12:00-7:30pm with the bar being open 12:00-10:00pm.

We will be accepting bookings for food from tomorrow morning Wednesday 1st of July on the phone, at the moment bookings can only be made a maximum of two weeks in advance and the maximum size of party will be six people from no more than two households.

Our outside bar will be open Monday to Wednesday from 4pm – 8pm.

And then all-day Thursday to Sunday 12 mid-day until 10pm.

Due to guidelines there we will only allow a maximum of six people in a party.

While these rules seem strange, they are essential to our safe operation but will allow us to open again.

Please be patient with us as this is all new to us too, feel free to ask any questions or provide any suggestions you may have. Rest assured all our staff will have completed a new Covid-19 induction and risk assessment to ensure your safety.
