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.

The Wheatsheat is located in an idyllic setting in Combe Hay, about 10/15mins from the centre of Bath. We have visited the Wheatsheaf numerous time this year and are always impressed with the great, friendly service, and amazing food. Every time we visit the Wheatsheaf we can't help but be impressed by the menu offering, there is always a nice... 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

Sitting outside on the terrace could be in the hills above Cannes. Well prepared food from a skilled kitchen, one operating well above many more lauded bath restaurants Some dishes could be lighter. Very family friendly and a great wine list. Really warm staff and welcome. A perfect pub.

The Wheatsheaf is situated in a small commuter village in beautiful surroundings on the southern outskirts of Bath. The car park contained a fair number of Chelsea Tractors and the pub itself, and most of the customers on the night we were there, could easily have been airlifted in from Fulham. The welcome was friendly but it took three attempts... More
