We had two delightful nights at the Wheatsheaf Inn in July 2014 We arrived at the Wheatsheaf Inn about 830pm after one of those horror days of travel with two missed flights from Venice to Birmingham (not our fault) and the drive down to Northleach, about seven hours behind schedule.. We walked into the bar and asked where reception was... More

We stayed overnight here to break a journey. The building is beautiful inside and out, and our room had such a huge bed in it we didn't bother using the Z-bed that had been set-up for our son - we just all used the main bed. Really beautiful garden courtyard to sit outside with a drink. Friendly staff. Great wine... More

Stopped on the way to a family party in Gloucestershire. We approached from the car park above the steep garden. On going into the nearest door we came into a bar/kitchen/dining room, which only had one table for guests to eat at which was occupied, it had a huge kitchen counter behind which a chef was toiling and a bar...

I absolutely loved this hotel, the room was lovely with the most amazing bath. The food was just lovely and the service was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble and all the little extras such a nuts and chocolate made the whole stay perfect. Thank you to the hard working staff who made the stay so lovely

I visited with some friends, we just went for a few drinks, when we arrived there was one person serving drinks and there were about 15 people waiting so the service was very slow. I got a jug of pimms and lemonade which was lovely, it was £10 which isn't a bad price, however a friend then decided to get... More

Yes the gardens are gorgeous and it is in a lovely Cotswolds location! But the room was dusty, heavy dust? £150 a night I feel like il pay but not happily! We had a... More

This was our second visit to this hotel and we absolutely love it here. The rooms have got a really nice feel as do the building and gardens in general. The position of the hotel is in a really quiet little village and if you are looking to relax this place is completely recommended. The staff are all really friendly... More

We met some friends for lunch at the Wheatsheaf Inn which was recommended. We sat at a table in the garden area outside of the main bar. The special menu for the day was very not very appealing so we ate a la carte. The pricing of the menu is high for the food on offer and whilst the meal... More

The wheatsheaf is very much a coaching inn. You check in at the bar, its more a pub with rooms than a hotel. On arrival walking from the pub car park through the garden, the music was blasting out and was not the beautiful serene place it had looked on the photo. However, the room was lovely , very contemporary... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In years gone by the Wheatsheaf Inn hosted large parties in the hall above the stables below where the teams of horses and coaches would be kept and above blindingly drunken parties would be held where coachmen, travellers and mysterious highwaymen would drink (the water wasn’t much good so it was mostly yards of ale), dance, tell tales, sing and generally be very badly behaved. The hall is now bedrooms but in the private dining room we still hold feasts where you can do the same thing. Whole suckling pigs or large joints of beef will be carried in, copious amounts of wine will be drunk and they you can just crawl upstairs to one of our 14 beautiful bedrooms. A feast may be a bit too much food on a normal night so you can also opt for simple bar snacks from £5 for something delicious on toast. All the food comes from our amazing suppliers, some is organic, some is not but mostly it is local and seasonal and is cooked by Anthony, Tim and the Wheatsheaf’s talented team of chefs. We are child and dog friendly and have a great garden. The inn in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds in the historic market town of Northleach. It is within easy reach of Cirencester, Cheltenham and Oxford and about 1 1/2 hours drive from London. ... more   less
