Not Wheeler's any more!

This is no longer Wheeler's of St. James's and is no longer owned by MPW. it is now a local gastro pub serving very good food. I won't continue except to say that I've already reviewed this fully under the Angel 'banner'...just go into Lavenham restaurants and take the 'Angel' option...although I... read more

They bring you a salad as a starter included in the price. This consisted of avocado and a few rocket leaves. I don't like avocado so there was a lot of waste. I ordered grilled chicken. When it arrived the skin was moist, almost oily and was not even slightly crisp. It came with grilled tomatoes which were sweet. The... More

This use to be in keeping with other Wheelers but its changed beyond all recognition. Students are the bulk of the waiting staff with either no training or they dont care. Three of them had no knowledge of the menu or wine list. Even the chips tasted frozen. Long gone are the triple cooked variety. As they other writer says... More

Lovely old building. Staff were friendly and the restaurant had a nice relaxing feel. Food was very good and very reasonably priced. Two courses and a bottle of wine for circa £55 + service which we felt was very good value.

Just another place that trades on the name of a celebrity chef who own but makes no contribution so why bother to go, and he suggests we all use Knorr stock, an instant mark down. Just don't wast your money walk across the road and get a seriously excellent meal cooked and served professionally. Look at what the locals do... More

If you want Sunday lunch here I would go soon. I won't be surprised to here it has closed or been taken over by someone else. The food is always delicious and this Sunday was no exception but the menu was very disappointing. One choice if starter beet root salad with a bit of celery and only ice cream selections... More

Taking my mum and dad for a birthday lunch, she was looking forward to her first dining experience under the MPW banner. It was mid-week and only one other table was occupied, so service was very quick and attentive. The staff are extremely friendly and professional. We opted for fish and chips and the liver. My fish was fine, however... More
