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.

On recommendation from our b& b we had great meal at this restaurant. Service good but did feel a bit rushed as larger parties in as well. Definitely worth visit

Once you have managed to find the Wheatsheaf its well worth the trip. This was our second visit, the first of which was a summers day when we ate outdoors overlooking the fantastic country side and beautiful gardens. My fish course was sublime - fresh and cooked to perfection. How often is fish overcooked and smothered in sauce? This restaurant... More

I was not disappointed on either occasion, this time i visited as part of a party of 8 on a Saturday lunchtime. The pub was not packed but busy, the staff were helpful and very efficient without being in the least intrusive, the food... More

I recently met some friends here for lunch. It's not easy to find, being down lots of little winding country lanes. But when you arrive, it is well worth it. I could see that in the summer the garden must be beautiful. The pub itself is really nicely decorated, and very comfortable. But the food is the star. I had... More

A bit o the pricey side but lovely setting, good choice of menu well presented in a lovely old English Pub. Not the easiest place to find but worth a visit for a special occasion meal

A warm welcome is guaranteed at the Wheatsheaf. Family run pub with modern decor and a roaring fire. 2 sofas either side of the fire mean that you can relax there after your meal, or take a walk in the glorious quiet countryside around the pub. The landlord and his family are genial hosts and you feel very at home... More

We have done christening meals, 40th Birthdays and lots of memorable meals at the Wheatsheaf. it has the perfect mix for me; great locally sourced food, friendly service and amazing setting. Whether you are sitting around the fire in winter or basking on the terrace in summer it is simply my favourite place to eat.

This was our 4th visit over the summer and I struggle to understand why anyone owning this business hasn't worked out that Friday and Saturday evenings are going to be busy and get the service sorted out. Each time we have had to wait 2 or 3 deep at the bar, we always reserve a table but still we wait... More
