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.

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

This restaurant is a 10 minute drive out of Bath, hidden in a small wooded valley near a little river. You might need a GPS to find it as it is tucked away off the road. It is also an Inn with rooms though we did not stay there. It has a patio so outdoor dining is an option. There... More

Having cycled 70 miles I was ready for lunch! We choose to sit outside as the weather was warm. Our table was laid and ready and the staff were well-organised and friendly. We opted for the two course lunch and were quickly served with excellent starters. Main course was also very good, well prepared and full of flavour. Drinks choice... More

We were very interested to try the Wheatsheaf again having loved it many years ago when it was a vibrant country pub serving interesting high quality pub grub. We booked a table for two to celebrate my retirement. Booking was not made easy as you cannot book on line and they are closed all Monday. The setting is to die... More

As a business we had our first ever sales meeting with all of our agents, the pressure was on us to provide the entertainment for the evening. We booked into the Wheatsheaf at Combe Hay, on arrival we were all made very welcome by all members of staff. We sat outside on the patio overlooking the valley on what was... More

We booked lunch for 4 to celebrate my sister's birthday and the food was delicious - they were also very good about the fusspot special diet person (me) and I had dairy free, egg free options that were yummy. We had my visually impaired sister and her guide dog with us and they had put us in a good location... More

My boyfriend and I had planned a lovely country walk followed by a nice lunch, and after a little searching on the internet we found this lovely looking pub and booked a table for lunch. When we arrived (after our walk) we ordered some drinks at the bar and told them we had reserved a table. They appeared to have... More

Usual Sunday lunch haunt was full so we came here, a lot of diners taking advantage of the gardens in the pleasant weather. Limited choice of food with only one roast on offer, not a problem for me as I feel vast menus equal large freezers and lack lustre fare but this did cause some issues with some of our... More

The starter chosen by two of our party was not available so they did without . Looked forward to dessert but our choice from the dessert menu was also not available . Very disappointing, had we visited on a bank holiday Monday I would have understood the lack of choice but we visited at lunchtime on a Sunday.
