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.

a brilliant meal again from the love,y Wheatsheaf. The lobster was tender and perfectly cooked and the accompanying sauce was absolutely delicious . 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!

I visited the Wheatsheaf for a family meal (7 people) recently and I was very impressed. The food is fantastic – the desserts in particular – the staff are very welcoming.

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.
