Hands-on proprietor Joe Wright is justifiably proud of The Waggon Inn. Since taking over this centrally-located venue in September 2006 he has drawn on his long experience in the hospitality industry to restyle The Waggon into a welcoming restaurant with wide appeal across all age groups. In keeping with the family-friendly atmosphere I was very impressed to discover that there is a dedicated playroom suitable for smaller kids. The clever seating arrangements mean that parents are able to enjoy a relaxing meal and a drink while keeping an eye on their children. The comprehensive kids' menu will also appeal to families looking for somewhere suitable to dine.

The menu offers a wide selection of dishes including steaks, pasta, Tex-Mex and some more traditional favourites. For starters the beer-battered mushrooms, generously stuffed with local haggis and served with a creamy whisky and peppercorn sauce, is a delightful start to a Scottish evening out. For something a little more decadent try the golden Brie melt, oozing out of golden breadcrumbs and complemented with a tangy gooseberry coulis. It was difficult to choose just one of the sauces on offer for my rib-eye steak. I opted for the port and Stilton and was not disappointed. The locally sourced meat was well-cooked and tender and served with gorgeous homemade chips. The onion rings deserve a special mention too - they were fantastic. One of the most popular dishes on the menu is the classic lamb's liver wrapped in smoky Ayrshire bacon and served with creamy mash and a sage and red onion gravy. This too was cooked to perfection and very generously portioned.

The waitresses were friendly, informative and obviously enjoy their work, which adds to the welcoming feel of the place. The Waggon Inn is not just a restaurant - there is live music on Friday nights and on Wednesday nights there is a regular pub quiz. The Sunday carvery is popular with locals and visitors alike and there are special lunch deals for pensioners. For good food, great value for money and friendly service you won't go wrong with The Waggon.
