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.

Situated in a beautiful, if difficult to find, location. I was looking forward to my first time visit to the Wheatsheaf. However, I was greeted by cold bar staff and a sterile interior obviously aimed at the Chelsea tractor set who can afford the over inflated food prices. With only 2 bitters offered the experience was made even worse by... More

We have visited the Wheatsheaf on two previous occasions and the food was excellent as was the friendly service.But on our third visit we were very disappointed with the quality of the food, the portions were small, the vegetables were too salty, the plaice was supposed to have come with capers but was sadly bereft, the pork and roast potatoes...

Decent pint great selection of bar food and an interesting menus, but we're did they dream up the prices, the food is good and the pint has been well cared for and presented well. Lack of eye contact and service does not appear to be a prerequisite from the staff. Beautiful location set in well maintained gardens, but the place... More

We took friends to this lovely restaurant as we have been very pleased with it before. We were offered a table inside on the garden terrace or indoors which was good. The venison was tender and beautifully cooked and our friend said the duck was the best she had ever tasted . This is an excellent family business and they... More

I'm a big fan of this place. You can always go there knowing that you will get a great meal in a beautiful setting. We went for lunch yesterday, as a group of 4 adults and 3 children and we had a lovely time. We sat in the absolutely stunning gardens, had a delicious meal and gorgeous wine. The kids... More

On a fine summers day, lunch here on the terrace or inside, could not be more perfect. This country pub has a certain magic about it from the glorious setting, the characterful building, consistently good pub food, a warm welcome and lots and lots of thoughtful little touches. A very well run establishment with a nice buzz and lots of... More

Roast tomato and pepper soup and their excellent treacle tart completed a great meal. The house rose Was excellent with a light fruity taste and just the thing for summer drinking.

Consistent outstanding quality on each visit over several years. This really is as good as it gets. I do hope they start doing triple cooked chips again, they were the best in Bath!
