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.

Sunday lunch

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.

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

The Wheatsheaf is a well positioned pub, with many of the components needed to compete in the country gastro pub market - but oh my, how it fails to deliver on the promises it suggests it will make. The decor is firmly country-Sloane; collections of corks displayed as a sign of parties past and other long forgotten interior decorating ideas.... More

The service was vacant and the food bland, menu try hard. We were barely registered, dinner was tasteless and even though we only ate half of the main course nobody bothered to ask why. £100 poorer for diner for 2, we won't be returning. Over-rated, over-priced don't bother.

It must be about 15 years since we last visited and it was wonderful to drive through the tree tunnels down single track lanes on a wild, wet and windy night last weekend. The welcome was warm and professional, service attentive and relaxed, food top-notch pub restaurant fare, and we passed a delightful evening with good friends which went all... More

On recommendation from our b& b we had great meal at this restaurant. Service good but did feel a bit rushed as larger parties in as well. Definitely worth visit

Once you have managed to find the Wheatsheaf its well worth the trip. This was our second visit, the first of which was a summers day when we ate outdoors overlooking the fantastic country side and beautiful gardens. My fish course was sublime - fresh and cooked to perfection. How often is fish overcooked and smothered in sauce? This restaurant... More

This is the second time I have visited this pub following a recommendation in the Telegraph. I was not disappointed on either occasion, this time i visited as part of a party of 8 on a Saturday lunchtime. The pub was not packed but busy, the staff were helpful and very efficient without being in the least intrusive, the food... More
