We had Sunday lunch last Weekend. Food very nicely and imaginitively prepared. They were very busy, but service was prompt polite and accompanied by some fun quips. I would definitely go again.

Arrived 12.15 had to wait to be seated even though staff walked past us. Extremely busy so service was affected, left with dirty plates for a long time. Had trio of roast, sorry but meat was tough, chicken dry. Veg not very hot. Pudding, melting choc bomb diappointing. Not good value for money. Had to endure staff dragging furniture across... More

Group of 4 who attended on Thursday night. Location and Setting - Excellent. Very well located and very pleasant environment. Open fire, clean, well decorated and overall very nice experience. However it was hotter than the surface of the sun inside. Granted very cold outside (c.3 degrees) so was welcome but the balance was all wrong. We weren't seated near... More

Attractive decor and nice outside eating courtyard. The food is excellent and easy parking. The menu changes with the seasons and there are different levels of tables and seating and cosy areas for a drink.

We dropped in here with the teenage family, expecting the same result as our previous visit. Sadly not.. The burger was nice but just had a crude slab of lettuce in it, the pizza wasn't cooked through in the base, the soup was a little too spicy. So its was OK, but when you look round upstairs parts of the... More

Myself and my husband are relatively local to this pub however this is the first time we have popped in for a drink due to parenting and busy life's, we don't always get out very often. It is perfect if you are looking for just a quiet drink with your partner or maybe family gathering. The decor is modern with... More

I often visit The Wavendon Arms with either friends of family and always have a lovely meal, reasonably priced and tastes good. Nothing is to much trouble for the team working there and they always offer a friendly welcome which adds to the experience. I would recommend booking before hand as it does get very busy.

As others have mentioned, this very pleasant pub is ideally placed for a pre-theatre meal before visiting the Stables. Why, then, can they not make the most of it? My group of 5 booked for 6.15pm, arrived on time and ordered as soon as the waitress came the table, making it clear that we were heading for the Stables afterwards... More

Having travelled over 75 miles to get to the Stables venue, I had booked a table at the Wavedon for our anniversary meal. Initial impressions were good and we were sat by the fire. I asked to be moved as the fire was incredibly hot and there is no way anybody could have eaten in that temperature. Given that it... More
