We visited the restaurant on a Friday recently at 1pm. The booking process was really straight forward and used the Quandoo app to keep track. The restaurant itself is very nice with a conservatory to the side is really nice and this is where we sat. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was delicious. The only thing was that it was quiet but that could have been on a weekday. Highly recommended
Was attracted to the valentines menus (burger and drink) advertised on Facebook. So thought we would give it another try under the new management. Wasn’t offered the special menu on arrival (albeit I did comment on the Facebook advert) and we were charged drinks extra. Didn’t cause a fuss and just paid the bill. Menu was a scruffy stained bit of paper - why! Get it laminated - it’s the small things that make all the difference. Food was ok but no atmosphere - very few customers. I don’t think we would go back.
Friendly and accommodating staff. Chef also came out to us. Fresh veg. Well cooked and tasty meat dishes. Hot. Well presented. Perhaps background music a bit loud at times.
No two visits to Waggon & Horses Westhoughton are ever the same, thanks to the extensive British food offering which changes seasonally based on whatever fresh produce is readily available. From its central location on Chorley Road, just a stone’s throw away from Bolton, Waggon & Horses keeps the people of Westhoughton well fed and watered seven days a week and all year round. If you’re in for a few scoops and find yourself a wee bit peckish, ensure you avail of some light bites or nibbles off the extensive British and European menu. We love the Mediterranean platter to share with olives, hummus, taramasalata, sharing breads, olive oil and balsamic vinegar or the salt and pepper squid with a lemon and cracked black pepper mayonnaise
When it comes to the main event at Waggon & Horses, you will be absolutely spoilt for choice. So much so that we suggest dining with someone you enjoy sharing food with – that way you can try out a few different dishes together. We love the king prawn linguine with roasted peppers, garlic, chilli, baby spinach and sun-blushed tomatoes; Aberdeen Angus beef burger with skinny fries and homemade coleslaw and the pan-fried fillet steak and Stilton sandwich with fried red onions. No matter where in Bolton you’re coming from, ensure you arrive at Waggon & Horses armed with an advance booking to ensure you nab a spot!
