Think of the Wheatsheaf as a place to relax. For people looking for comfort to socialise where it is as much about drinking as eating think "The Wheatsheaf Inn".The Wheatsheaf is about value for money, your need to escape, to relax and enjoy, somewhere where the food is traditional and comforting, all homemade on site using nothing but fresh local produce. Enjoy the company of family and friends. Watch the latest sporting event on the large screens. It more than just a pub it is a time - honoured village pub at the heart of the local community

This pub is a real pub with lively locals who were friendly and welcoming. The food was unpretentious, very tasty, great value and ideal for us on a rainy summer Friday evening.

We go here regularly we can never fault the food drink or atmosphere. Its lovely I the summer with the garden to the side and cozy in the winter with the open fire!! Food is always to a high standard and the service is great. One of the best country pubs around!

Yes, we enjoyed it. The food was very nice. Our party of 4 tried the Gammon, the Lamb Shank, a Pork dish from the specials board and, since it was a Sunday evening, the Beef Roast from lunchtime.

Specials menu never dissapoints, generally wide range of choices on the menu, good size portions and prices are reasonable for the top-quality food. If you're after a splendid meal, look no furhter. Highly recommended.

Well done to the chefs, the food was beautifully presented and tasted absolutely gorgeous. I just wish your restaurant was bigger so I could bring a huge group of friends. Will return soon!!

We were a group of 30 who had a meal on Friday 15th May. We had all pre-chosen our meals from the menu before-hand, each of us having different meals/ courses. This was all easily and very helpfully arranged via e-mail. Everyone said they really enjoyed their food, the staff worked very hard to look after us and we had... More
