“A favorite of famous jockeys and trainers. Wagner’s Pharmacy is a must try for anyone staying at The Churchill Cottage. This is a dinner style resturant and we love everything on the menu! We would have to recommend the omelets if you’re there for breakfast. If you happen to be there for lunch on a Friday, you must try the fish. ”
