Set in a lovely rural position surrounded by farmland, this charming old-fashioned timbered and thatched building has been well known in the area for a great many years. It is always a pleasure to return to and has retained a bygone era atmosphere. There is ample off the road car parking. There are log fires buring in the winter months.... More

As the title states very pleasant setting and friendly and helpful staff. The food was very good quality but could have been a bit warmer. Also the service was a little slower than we would have liked. That said it is a weekend just before Christmas which could have contributed to both those minor observations. All in all it was...

Celebrated my birthday her with family. Really good choice. The food was excellent and the service very personable. All within a quaint setting that I know our Aamerican friends will love when they come over next year. Can't wait to go back.

Quiet attentive service, oodles of choice from the menu, really tasty and well presented food. No complaints and even got to keep the lamb bone for the dog!

Went out for a special occasion meal with family and it was worth the journey from Cheshire. Couldn't fault it, although we all thought the lighting was just a little too dim. Staff attentive but not pushy, food was wonderful, wine list comprehensive. Don't mind paying a bit more than usual for this quality. Keep it up,

Boyfriend took me here on our first ever date and we've never looked back since. This place serves the best food we have both ever had and it was here that we realised that we had a lot more in common than we realised. We hadn't made a booking but we were still given an amazing table - the service... More

A bit of background first. As a Birkonian born and bred, going back to the early seventies, a trip to the Wheatsheaf was a rare occurence as it was the haunt of the well healed, and should we say, a "cut above". As pubs in general evolved, serving food became more and more common with the Wheatsheaf being no different.... More
