If you don’t know “The Wags” as it is affectionately know, Laurent serves a great pint of London Pride or Doombar, and somehow manages to run an amazing French Restaurant at the same time. From Ladies that Lunch, via corporate get togethers to a romantic evening, Laurent and his staff cater for them all with great charm and enormous style – not to mention fabulous food. That’s my experience anyway, it is well worth a visit. Nick
The Waggoners pub and restaurant is set in the picturesque village of Ayot Green not far from Welwyn Garden City town centre.
It has, for decades, been a popular destination for food and drink lovers from far and wide. From November 2017 it will boast a new marquee to add to its existing facilities. Its opening will pave the way for a host of additional activities at the 400 year old building.The marquee will be able to accommodate 80 guests sitting down and 120 for a standing reception.

The Waggoners is owned and run by Laurent Brydniak and his wife Aude.
They see the new marquee is being an ideal venue for a host of events ranging from weddings and private dinners to wakes and corporate gatherings.
Wine dinners, murder mystery evenings and magic nights are also planned.
Highlights for the existing cosy bar and restaurant include:
New Monday mussel lunches with five different sorts of mussels.
Tuesday to Saturday – lunch menu for £15 and £18 for a la carte.
Two-course bar menu for £10.
Evening a la carte menu plus three course table d’hôte menu for £22.
Fish and chips lunch and dinner, with a glass of fizz, on Fridays.
Sunday lunch two course, £19, three course £24, and three course with a glass of Champagne, £28.
It is believed The Waggoners began life as estate cottages for workers from nearby Brocket Hall, but was used in centuries gone by as a coaching inn on the busy Great North Road which ran by its front door until recent times when the new Digswell Hill and A1(M) were built.
There is extensive parking outside.
