Dining here is a special experience. The setting is stunning in all seasons. Dining in the glassed in colonnaded Portico dining room is a wonderful treat. The surrounding manicured gardens are beautiful, and it is all overlooking a lovely valley that is deep green in Spring and Summer, and blanked snow white in the winter. The room is very comfortable,... More

We wanted to try the Library due to some of the great reviews. How completely disappointing! We knew it did not bode well when we realized we were going to have to sit on the laps of other diners. Okay, not really, but elbow to elbow. Way too close! One should not be able to hear each and every word... More

Dining at the Wheatleigh is special. Situated in an old estate converted to a small, 19 room hotel and restaurant, you will be privileged and pleased to dine here. The staff couldn't have more friendly and accommodating. Our waiter, Andreas, was knowledgeable in both food and wine. Everything was beautifully presented and exquisitely delicious. It is expensive but it's nice... More

Firstly, oenophiles rejoice! The wine list is a dream. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and charming, taking the time to explain the various wines and why he had selected them for us. We took a Coravin wine pairing and the vineyard and vintages that came one after the other were superb - including a 1990 d'yquem! The restaurant also offered... More

After a meal prepared with the greatest attention to detail and replete with a full bounty of culinary pleasures, our food experience at The Wheatleigh was completely compromised by a total mishandling by the manager of a question concerning the bill by one of the members of our party. Even though I was not directly involved in the conversation, it's... More

We celebrated an important family birthday and elected to have the 7 course meal. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff treated us like royalty. The champagne was perfect and the cheese course was to die for. We're already planning our next visit.
