Ate here only, dinner. The inn is well known throughout the area and has a traditional feel to it. I remember it from over 40 years ago! Warm reception and nice areas to dine in. There were a few decent draught beers. The menu was limited and offered a bargain penny pudding. Our starters were only average. and the same... More

We had called in a couple of months ago and had a few drinks. The pub has a lovely atmosphere and the menus look enticing so we decided to eat again when in the area. Beer excellent but the food from the Penny menu was disappointing. The black pudding starter and pate starters both lacked finesse and were served on... More

We visited with a friend mid week and it was initially quiet although it did fill up later on. The service was with a smile and we had no quibbles with the service. The menu had a good selection and the food came quickly and it was very good. There is plenty of parking in a car park just across... More

The Wheatsheaf is a very pleasant country pub just off the main A6, the staff are generally friendly and helpful. The food is good and the"penny menu" is good value. A penny for a starter and penny for sweet while paying full price for the main course. We visit regularly when in the area.

We stayed two nights. We have stayed and eaten here many times over the last 30 years. The welcome at 7.30 on a Saturday night was okay, but certainly not overwhelming. The room (Leighton) was good, warm and clean. Dinner was disappointing. My steak was fine but the fish was overcooked. The wine we ordered was confused by the waiter.... More

My wife and her family have been to this public house for over 20 years, on-and-off, but the food quality has gradually become less acceptable. The final straw was last Monday when 3 of us ordered "cheese-and-onion pie"; expecting to be served with the usual dish with pastry top-and-bottom. To our horror we were served with a dish comprising mashed... More

This was our 4th visit and thoroughly enjoyable as always. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming, couldn't do enough to assist. The food is reasonably priced, fresh produce and a decent selection. We will be back again.

Not much to say about this charming village hostelry...other than, well, it is just that. Delightfully relaxed...an olde worlde inn feel without being over the top. Food was hearty and delicious...slightly overpriced but in keeping with the relative cost of living in these parts... The inn is perfectly situated for walks too...including the fairy steps...so very worth a stop off... More
