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.

We have done christening meals, 40th Birthdays and lots of memorable meals at the Wheatsheaf. it has the perfect mix for me; great locally sourced food, friendly service and amazing setting. Whether you are sitting around the fire in winter or basking on the terrace in summer it is simply my favourite place to eat.

This was our 4th visit over the summer and I struggle to understand why anyone owning this business hasn't worked out that Friday and Saturday evenings are going to be busy and get the service sorted out. Each time we have had to wait 2 or 3 deep at the bar, we always reserve a table but still we wait... More

Sitting outside on the terrace could be in the hills above Cannes. Well prepared food from a skilled kitchen, one operating well above many more lauded bath restaurants Some dishes could be lighter. Very family friendly and a great wine list. Really warm staff and welcome. A perfect pub.

The Wheatsheaf is situated in a small commuter village in beautiful surroundings on the southern outskirts of Bath. The car park contained a fair number of Chelsea Tractors and the pub itself, and most of the customers on the night we were there, could easily have been airlifted in from Fulham. The welcome was friendly but it took three attempts... More

This restaurant is a 10 minute drive out of Bath, hidden in a small wooded valley near a little river. You might need a GPS to find it as it is tucked away off the road. It is also an Inn with rooms though we did not stay there. It has a patio so outdoor dining is an option. There... More

Having cycled 70 miles I was ready for lunch! We choose to sit outside as the weather was warm. Our table was laid and ready and the staff were well-organised and friendly. We opted for the two course lunch and were quickly served with excellent starters. Main course was also very good, well prepared and full of flavour. Drinks choice... More

We were very interested to try the Wheatsheaf again having loved it many years ago when it was a vibrant country pub serving interesting high quality pub grub. We booked a table for two to celebrate my retirement. Booking was not made easy as you cannot book on line and they are closed all Monday. The setting is to die... More

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
