The Waggoners dates from the 17th century and is thought to have been built as housing for workers at Brocket Hall. It later became a coaching inn on the Great North Road, latterly called the A1. The construction of the A1(M) in a deep cutting to the west in 1974 resulted in the pub being left in the cul-de-sac where it is now.

The pub is sited on level ground at the top of the hill between Lemsford and Welwyn. This enabled waggon drivers to give their horses a rest after the long pull up “Mountain Slow”.
