Although it is a little out of the way for us it was worth the trip! The atmosphere is lovely and the food excellent, all in all a brilliant evening!

Booked table, but no one could find booking, no apologies, no smiles. My parents had travelled to take me for lunch for my birthday. Third visit and still making same errors! But the food was faultless, enjoyed. Shame.

Went for Sunday lunch with my husband and parents. Good selection of roast meats and they were tasty however the customer service was abysmal - I only hope they were temporarily understaffed for their own sake. There appeared to be two working on the bar...More

The Wheatsheaf belongs to Dan Garner, former head chef and part-owner -- now sole owner -- of the Farndon Boathouse. The Boathouse has long been a favourite for me, so visiting the Wheatsheaf was largely out of curiosity: would it match the standards of the...More

Found out that this is our new local - having moved house in the summer. Great reception, and very good food. Excellent value for money and will certainly be back!

Hi, We didn't have an evening meal but the restaurant side looked well set up for it and if they put the same effort into dinner as they did for lunch it should be a winner.
