The Waggon and Horses is under new ownership from the 9th January 2018 following the closure of the previous business. We are a pub-restaurant that specialises in home cooked, freshly prepared British and International dishes and we have a range of dishes priced to suit most pockets. Our business is building and we are looking forward to expanding even further. We are open from 12-00 noon until 11pm Mon-Saturday and 12-00 noon until 10-30pm Sundays. Food is served Monday to Saturday 12-00 until 9-00 and until 8-00 pm on Sundays. Our superb range of cask ales and other alcoholic drinks and beverages such as freshly brewed tea and coffee are available. We are also open on Bank Holiday Mondays 12-00 noon - 10.30pm. We have a great patio at the rear of the pub that looks out over the local countryside and across to Rivington Pike and we have, probably, the best example of stained glass windows-outside of a church-in the area, which depict scenes from the history of Westhoughton.
