About
We Serve Extremely Tasty Food! – Everything here is made from fresh ingredients by our fantastic team of chefs. We only use the best cuts of meat sourced from Marsh’s Butchers & Fresh Veg sourced locally. Every meal is made to order. Our Kitchen is currently open from Wednesday to Saturday serving the main menu and on Sundays when it’s our amazing roast dinners! Top Quality Drinks – We have spent hours taste testing wine (someone has to do it) to make sure everything is top quality. Our wines are often found in Michelin Star restaurants at more than double the price. We are not tied to any brewery which means we get to pick and choose the beer and make sure we have the best selection around!

We have been here on several occasions. The Sunday lunch is fantastic with lots of vegetables and big portions. The young lady who always serves us is Kyra and she goes above and beyond in her customer service. Always lovely and really can't do enough...for us. Great place for a nice Sunday Pub lunch.More

This was our first visit to this bistro pub for my wife and I as we don’t live in Gt Wakering. However, we were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff (Sam & Sherry). Food was very...tasty and reasonably priced. We will definitely be revisiting this restaurant.More

Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and the best Sunday Roast. Staff apologised that we had to wait for our food . It was packed out and we were happy as we could see that the food was well worth waiting for :)

Lovely food, very reasonably priced with specials that are great value. 3 course Christmas dinner £15. Very friendly staff, made sure everything was ok throughout. Both Robyn and another young lady behind the bar who’s name I didn’t get were great. Will definitely be back...and look forward to enjoying their lovely garden in the summer too. Although the outside bar was open and looking very festive. Well done it looks greatMore

Had our Xmas meal in the Waeccer on the 7th December we were well looked after by Kessi & Kyra. The meal was tasty and hot(which is a must where I’m concerned!) and not a bad price considering the time of year!
