After being a local to this pub for a long time, I asked the day before if we could have a meal the following day. They said yes if we got there early, but we couldn't book a table in the bar. I got there with my family to find that two tables were booked in the bar for locals,... More

Our review is based solely upon a visit for an evening meal and, sadly, we found that the Inn fell short in two areas. The meals were not thought to be particularly good, fish somewhat tasteless (slightly undercooked?) and a meat meal over spiced. In short, edible and not bad enough to complain about but not enjoyable. In addition, although... More

Having driven past this pub on several occasions we decided to give it a go and were NOT disappointed. Staff were all very welcoming upon our arrival and we were shown to our table which was lovely. Menu was lovely and varied - something to suit everybody - even had a few "different" dishes which was refreshing to see. Considering... More

This was my third visit over the last year and I have always been happy with the food and service. This time around, it seemed like there were new owners or something similar? We only wanted a light lunch but were given the full menu, which didn't have any light bites so we opted for soup. Then we noticed a... More

Before I write a review I always have a look at what others have said and in this and other establishments I ask myself the above question because I cannot agree. I noticed the sign in the car park adjacent to the disabled parking area which invited users to ring a bell if assistance is needed - nice touch. I... More

We were staying in a hotel up the road overnight and called in to the Wheelwright for dinner. It had only opened under new management two days before, so we really weren't sure what to expect. We sat in the dining room, which was lovely and cosy on a cold night. The service was great, but the food was nothing... More

Like the previous entry, we arrived when it was not so busy. No local ales to start with but sat at a table. Waitress delivered a well used and stained paper menu. No real big deal but when the food arrived after a wait, the burger was over cooked, the bun burnt as where the fries and no dressing and... More

Only 2 Waitresses working bar and restaurant on a Friday Bank Holiday we should have known we may be in for a wait - but 2 HOURS for our main meal to arrive. Having been seated at our table we waited 20 mins before the menus were brought to the table. We ordered a bottle of wine and a Guiness.... More

We had been wanting to visit the wheelwright for sometime after reading some of the reviews... We arrived and were very briskly taken to our table it's a shame we were not able to have a drink at the bar before hand .. But service was good. Very polite and helpful.. After being seated we were reading through the menu... More
