Cricket club open every day from three. Was there earlier this evening for a quick drink and game of darts. Very friendly venue and gaining in popularity. February 1st a local singer appearing. Well worth a visit.

Agree too with your G’dog comments, although I’m usually gone before the idiots come in in a Friday and Saturday wanting to fight everybody.

yeah me to, i often go out about 9pm (after the kids have vacated the pub to go do their homework) the waggon was good for a quiet pint or 4 , i miss it....

, the 'g hound' imho just has that ' atmosphere' that i dislike.... so rarely use it now..

the hart on a friday night can be difficult to get to the bar as its busy and a large number drink while stood at the bar, so can be difficult to get your drinks ...plus they have had no hop house for 4 weeks now....Unhappy 

what is it with a pub with no beer ?

looking forward to light nights when i may well wander to the cricket club or up to the jolly farmer and sit out for a while...


need a stella and i need one now !

Couldn’t agree more. I love sitting out the front of the Jolly on a lovely sunny evening and berating the church gang as they park around the front within 10 yards of the junction causing traffic back logs on that very difficult bed. Apparently God is on their side. 😜😜

Walked past the Waggon this morning to see a notice for planning permission to demolish the place, presumably to build whatever on the site.

Before there are sharp intakes of breath, please remember that this was just a business that has now joined the George and Poachers as being not required. Business come and go, and fail if they do not reflect need. We have lost Stratton bakery, the Book Shop, the florist in the precinct, numerous restaurants / food outlets and the bike shop to name but a few, and the Party shop is going. All this shows is that these businesses could not keep afloat for whatever socio-economic reason, and have moved on to join BSA motorcycles, British Leyland, Woolworth’s and other numerous brands that no longer exist.

I have to be truthful and say that in 25 years of local living, I didn’t like the Waggon and preferred to walk past and take my trade elsewhere. My opinion only, but certainly reflected by more than a few to my knowledge.

Today’s prophecy; the next to join this band will be the White Hart. Gone south since Rachel left, and has an odd business model. Why shut a bar and fill the place with TV screens? It doesn’t seem to be attracting customers.

Today’s observation. If you want something to remain, use it. I can see the Co-op going since the herd are now clamouring into M&S as though it is the only outlet in the village that sells foodstuffs; it isn’t. Support independents, or don’t moan if they go under.

Not sure The Co-op could be considered an independent store and it has come a long way from its Socialist roots, but to those who feel it is a shame to lose the only pub on this side of the village, I would say that The Waggon and horses will not be demolished at least until after the application to have the building listed has been considered.

Is it officially listed?
Too many laws...
Too few examples...
