about us

If you’re passionate about delicious, seasonal food, cooked by an award winning chef, using only the very best ingredients, then The Waggon at Birtle is the place for you.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our food, our great selection of wines, spirits and beers, great service and of course a warm, friendly atmosphere.

The Waggon at Birtle used to be an old, rundown pub, before we converted it into a modern, yet warm and homely restaurant. It took us the best part of a year to do, but now our customers know and love it just as much as we do.

Now The Waggon is a busy, cosy restaurant open 5 days a week, serving at lunch and evening.

Since we’ve been open, we’ve been presented with several prestigious awards and have been recommended in many renowned food guides, including The Good Food Guide, but our most prized thing of all is the fact our loyal customers come back time and again.

We like to think this is down to our attention to detail, not just in our food, which changes according to the seasons, utilising seasonal ingredients and keeping our menus interesting, but also in the warm service we provide to our customers.

So why not book a table and see for yourself. We hope you won’t be disappointed and that you too will become one of our regulars.

‘The Waggon is a hidden culinary gem’.
