Every Friday lunchtime we four intrepid pensioners travel around looking for a place to have lunch and a drink in nice surroundings. Today we found a cracker, The Waggoners Inn!
It's a lovely friendly place, the food we had was smashing, the staff were all lovely and the prices were very fair. In all we really enjoyed it and will certainly go again. Can't wait.

98% there
To start I live less than 5 mins away from this pub and after a horrific visit a couple of years ago I refused to return.
Hearing that it had changed hands I decided to give it one last chance.
I'm SO glad I did. The new staff are incredibly friendly and I genuinely can not fault their service at all.

YOU HAVE TO BOOK! Word of mouth seems to have spread about the fantastic service and it is ear impossible to get a table without booking (even on a Tuesday which is when we went!)

It is priced very reasonably and the quality of food is very high.

The views are beautiful outside and I can not wait to sit outside in summer.

I have ONE suggestion to the chefs. I am a vegetarian and it was so disheartening to see only one option - cheese and onion pie. Don't get me wrong the pie was BRILLIANT but I hope that it is not my only choice going forward. Bring maybe two other vegetarian choices to the board and you'd have hit the 100% mark for me.

I will be back up again for my mother's birthday along with all my family. It says something when I recommend a restaurant (I rarely ever do it!). I look forward to seeing you again.
(and again, and again and again).

Thank you!

Very good food and excellent service
Had a saturday lunch a couple of weeks ago and the food was really good. Tried to get in on a Friday evening but it was packed so you need book. Will definitely go again.

Great food and service - but drop the oven chips
Just tried the new Waggoners. Lots of positives, nicely refurbished, good selection of food, excellent staff who were really helpful and obliging, nice atmosphere. Only one thing that would stop me recommending it across friends - please change to real chips not oven, it makes all the difference to us!!

Food Lovers
As long time customers of the Calfs Head we did not know if New Waggoners would live up to it but am pleased to say it was excellent. Great service, food, and price. Very busy so would book in advance so as not to be disappointed.

Top Class
As a long term admirer of The Calfs Head, Worston - when I heard about them opening at The Waggoners I just had to go and try it out. I wasn't disappointed.

Although very busy, the standard of service from the staff was exellent and the food was top class. Great variety off good home cooked food, a specials menu and some tasty ales on offer - all round a great experience. WE WILL VISIT AGAIN.

Excellent food, great service
Tried the New Waggoners in Burnley recently and at first I was a bit dubious because I knew what the old Waggoners was like! However I was extremley impressed. Food was excellent with great service and there has been massive improvments to the surroundings. As you walk in you are presented with an open fire and friendly new bar. Waiting time without a booking is from 30 - 40 minutes but you can relax in fron of the fire with a drink and newspapers. Menu very basic but the quality of the food is amazing. I would recommend the thai fishcakes to start and the fillet steak for main. Also had a great menu of desserts.

when i complained to the staff behind the bar they basically didnt care, very poor manners.
