Description: Named as a 'Rising Star' in the Michelin Guide 2008, The Wheatsheaf in Combe Hay - only 15 minutes from the centre of Bath – is hotly tipped to become one of the south west's top dining destinations. This award-winning restaurant overlooks the village of Combe Hay which is nestled at the southern tip of the Cotswalds, and was recently voted as one of The Times top 20 villages to live in. It goes without saying the food at The Wheatsheaf is spectacular. Head Chef Lee Evan has earned a stellar reputation for his modern British cooking, and signature dishes include the lasagne of Cornish crab, ginger and lemongrass foam; and the loin of venison served with apple and truffle risotto.

My partner booked a table here valentines day and it was romantically perfect. I've visited here once before, some four years ago and had an equally good experience. For me it's always felt like a special treat to come here. The food is fantastic, the wine list is lengthy and it's set in a quaint country village amidst a beautiful... More

The thing that I really love about the food here is the fact that in normal pubs you might get one boring vegetarian option (some bland mushroom packed dish or similar) but this place has an entire vegetarian menu! I have eaten at the Wheatsheaf a couple of times now and the veggie meals have been of a consistently high... More

I visited for Sunday lunch with my partner and two friends on 12th January. Firstly to be fair they enjoyed their meat-based meals very much and had no complaints about the food whatsoever. However I am a vegetarian so I ordered the one vegetarian starter option and the one main option. The starter was a cauliflower soup (with the now... More

Off the beaten track and somewhere I, personally, would not find easy to locate, the Wheatsheaf probably relies on returning trade and personal referrals for the majority of its business and you can see why, as this is a place I would be happy to return to time and time again - so why wouldn't everyone else. The small country... More

The restaurant is on the outskirts of Bath, in a very picturesque location. We recently visited as a couple. I expected the food to be good, but it certainly exceeded our expectations. The dining experience is certainly very relaxed, which in my opinion enhances the experience. They also allow dogs into the venue. We had: Starters: - Scallops with pork... More

I took my parents to The Wheatsheaf last night for dinner as it was a small family celebration and my mother has standards way above her station. The Wheatsheaf didn't disappoint and was once again 100% flawless. Great service, incredible food (all 3 courses and all 12 plates) and some much appreciated advice on the wine selection. They had a... More

Have visited for both lunch and dinner, both for business and with family and friends. At the end of the day, certainly not the cheapest meal you can have, but certainly one of the best - the adage that "you get what you pay for" couldn't be truer. Beautiful setting, especially in the summer months (or days in the UK!)... More

The cuisine was excellent. Quite a variety of quality, country, gourmet choices. The only thing we disliked was that the waiter offered fries rather than something more congruent with the meal.
