Delight in the beautiful Cheshire countryside at our welcoming inn. Look no further than the Waggon & Horses for a delightful pub and bed and breakfast in Cheshire. In the tiny village of Eaton lies the picture-postcard Waggon and Horses public house, ready to refresh the weary traveler with good food and ale. Be amazed at what our fine English pub has to offer. From fine cask ales, to locally sourced produce we have just what you need. We take great pride in our delicious food and at least 90% of what we serve in our restaurant is entirely home-made. It's tempting to get stuck at our warm and cosy bar with a real log fire on cold days complemented by the warm welcome of a family-run pub, but if you look that little bit further you'll see our beautiful caravan park situated at the heart of the idyllic Cheshire countryside. Not only that, we also offer clay pigeon shooting. Ideal for any day out, it is a great way to spend the day. For the summer there is a large garden overlooking open countryside, with a children's play area to allow parents to enjoy the good weather in peace! There is also ample car parking, and the front entrance is equipped with a ramp to allow wheelchair access. The restaurant serves all homemade freshly prepared food from an extensive menu, and on Sundays and Bank hoildays traditional roasts. The excellent food is accompanied by a wine list featuring both European and New World wines. We also have our own Clay Pigeon Shooting ground ,the only pub in Cheshire to do so You always get a warm welcome at the Waggon & Horses. Come and visit us and discover a home away from home.

Five of us plus dog dined here “al fresco” last night and had a great time. Congratulations to the owners and all the staff - the food was delicious and served with lots of smiles behind the masks! Our dog was welcomed with treats and water and had a great time. Keep up the good work......we will be back! 😊

Having found out that the Waggon and Horses had been taken over by Vanilla in all seasons my husband and I decided to visit on a very rare spare couple of hours without the kids in tow. Amidst a life of COVID, face masks and sanitisers stations it was a welcome reprieve to have an evening in a welcoming country pub, fire roaring, mulled wine on the stove and delicious food. We had a sharing board to start, baked Camembert (gorgeous), salt and pepper squid (again lovely) and sausage roll (I would have much preferred this served hot) followed by a hunters chicken and a pie- the pie was amazing! Topped off with a salted caramel torte and coffees, it was a lovely visit and we would definitely return.

We visited expecting good food since the new owners already have an outstanding reputation. We were not disappointed! Amazing Sunday lunch with delicious food at every course. The staff were all delightful and very attentive. It’s so good to find somewhere that takes a pride in serving excellent quality food at a very reasonable price. Book a table now whilst you still can.

We visited the restaurant on one of its “Tuesday/Thursday” deal it had running through September. I’d decided to book it as the deal seemed good value and the menu to support it was still a good size. The pub is a little tired and dated and the room for the restaurant felt a little like a school hall. The girl who took our order was very polite and was very attentive for the first order we placed. After starter and mains arrived, we found ourselves having to really get the attention of someone for another drink and to order a dessert. It felt a little bit like the locals were there and they were VIPs. It took a long time to get drinks and dessert, we weren’t in any rush but it is frustrating. The food was okay. The fish and chips was lacking taste in the fish and wasn’t as crispy on the batter as I like (personal preference), dessert was okay but felt it had been rushed so the waffle was a little tough in places. I am planning to give the pub another chance as the surroundings are lovely and a lot of places have felt the pressure of having offers on so maybe another night would be better.
