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.

Lovely Brunch

We had a very long lunch with a group of local friends at the Wheatsheaf, and enjoyed every minute. The food was exceptionally rich, but very good and a nice value. The interior is super cozy and comfortable and we loved the garden and the spaniels. Enjoy!

We were expected but hadn't ordered. Bit of a wait at the bar for drinks, food came fairly quickly (all cold) & was good. Various sandwiches accompanied by crisps & salad garnish (£6), ham & cheese ploughman's (£9), smoked salmon Caesar's salad (£9). The cheese on the ploughman's was very good & there was plenty of salmon in the Caesar's... More

We took a trip out to this country pub that we used to visit regularly in our teens nearly 50 years ago whilst we were taking a break in Bath. Whilst they were heavily booked they managed to fit us in early evening. We arrived on time, and had a very warm welcome. My first surprise was a pint of... More

The previous reviewer Trish Roath says it all, and perfectly. It was our first visit too, and even the owner's spaniel was delightfully friendly and well behaved. On a sunny day it'd be complete bliss.

We recently became aware of the Wheatsheaf in Combe Hay and have just returned from one of the loveliest meals I have had since we moved to the UK from Australia six month ago. The pub is set in an idyllic setting, surrounded by the most wonderful scenery. It is exactly what I imagined an English pub would be like.... More

Amazing location, peaceful, lovely views and a great fireplace. My wife and I visited for a rare night out without the kids. The welcome was friendly and I was directed to the appropriate wine quickly and successfully. The place looked, however, as if it was in need of a bit of a change. Whilst not immediately obvious the decor looked... More

Had a meeting with my boss early in April, and just loved the laid back approach, the jolly staff and the wonderful food, so decided to return there again with my wife. It was a Saturday evening and we went in for a drink and they had a spare table so decided to have a meal. I had a very... More

I go out quite regularly and most of the time if I do I go to the here. The burger is by far my favourite item on the menu and I am always greeted by the friendly owners Ian and James (and their dogs). It is a sophisticated country dining experience with delicious yet not pretentious culinary delights. The atmosphere... More

We had a really superb stay at The Wheatsheaf. The food was delicious with the best local lamb rump I Have ever eaten and seasonal wild garlic leaves included in the potatoes dauphinois a delight. It was relaxed and unfussy. The room was comfortable and quiet. The staff were friendly and considerate. If you are looking for somewhere relaxing to... More

A lovely pub with beautiful grounds. We ate inside and had a traditional Sunday lunch of pork with all the trimmings. Beautifully cooked and presented. Will certainly be back.
