About the Pub

This 16th century pub was once farmworkers' cottages. Now managed by the nearby Church Farm, the Jolly Waggoner has a reputation for fine food, most of it sourced from the farm itself or local suppliers. Cooked food only Sunday lunchtime, booking essential. Real Ale is sourced locally too, from Buntingford, Red Squirrel and Nethergate. Regular events include speciality food evenings, guest landlords, and a beer festival in August.
