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.

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.

My partner booked a table here valentines day and it was romantically perfect. I've visited here once before, some four years ago and had an equally good experience. For me it's always felt like a special treat to come here. The food is fantastic, the wine list is lengthy and it's set in a quaint country village amidst a beautiful... More

The thing that I really love about the food here is the fact that in normal pubs you might get one boring vegetarian option (some bland mushroom packed dish or similar) but this place has an entire vegetarian menu! I have eaten at the Wheatsheaf a couple of times now and the veggie meals have been of a consistently high... More

I visited for Sunday lunch with my partner and two friends on 12th January. Firstly to be fair they enjoyed their meat-based meals very much and had no complaints about the food whatsoever. However I am a vegetarian so I ordered the one vegetarian starter option and the one main option. The starter was a cauliflower soup (with the now... More

Off the beaten track and somewhere I, personally, would not find easy to locate, the Wheatsheaf probably relies on returning trade and personal referrals for the majority of its business and you can see why, as this is a place I would be happy to return to time and time again - so why wouldn't everyone else. The small country... More
