We were in the local area for the weekend and were lucky enough to come across the Wheatsheaf Inn. It is a charming, very well presented pub with a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. It has lovely views and outside seating which is where we sat for our first drink. Once inside the pub the staff were very friendly and asked... More

The service at the wheat sheaf is always with a smile, but the wait for food to arrive was far to long for a quiet lunch time. Deserts didn't arrive for half an hour, and were not as good as previous visits. The uniform seems to have changed since our last visit, standards may be slipping slightly and it does... More

My husband and I were recommended the Wheatsheaf Inn by friends, after they had popped in for a meal since the new management. We were so glad we did as what we found was friendly staff nothing was too much hassle, great food at very reasonable prices. If you are out that way give it a go, we will definitely... More

And in this instance that's not we found. It's under new management since I last wrote a review and it appears to be heading the wrong way. The food was ok but the whole overall experience was just very average and average just isn't good enough when there are places in the area which are good. There is very little... More

Myself and the wife popped in for lunch on our route to Yorkshire. Lovely place and great atmosphere with great surroundings of a church tower ready to collapse! I had the chicken sandwich which was lovely and the other half had cod and chips. Both great! I would say we will return again when in the area.

Call here en-route to a rugby match. Didn't know it was advisable to book. However, when we arrived there didn't seem many people in the restaurant but was told we'd have a 30 mins wait to take our order. Nothing really leapt out from the menu. My son had the chicken which he said was okay, my wife had the... More

My husband and i came across this little gem on our recent trip to yorkshire when we decided to stop for some lunch.

Myself and fiance were fed up with the usual service station fast food so we found this just off the A1 on the route back from visiting friends in London, Thursday lunch. Great little place, staff were really nice and helpful as well as chirpy! Can't fault the crispy battered cod and twice baked chips, my fiance had the steak... More

Took a colleague for a working lunch after having had a good experience a few months earlier when visiting for an evening meal. We both ordered from the lunch menu. We waited a long time for food even though it was nearly empty and when the food arrived it was tasteless. Really terrible and extremely poor value for money. Due... More
