Wnet with a large group of family and friends just before Christmas. The place was very busy with Christmas patrons and Sunday lunch customers. We had 3 course Christmas lunch which had everything including vegetarian. Serve was great and staff friendly even though it was very busy. Would go again.

I had liver and bacon which was excellent was glad I didn't have a starter as the portion size was generous. Staff were lovely would certainly go back if we were there... More

The Three Wheat Heads is a highly popular choice for locals who want a smashing Sunday lunch. Best to book ahead to ensure a table. Excellent choice of roasts and vegetables are cooked to order and served at your table. Friendly and efficient staff who make sure that things run smoothly.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our lunch today at the Three Wheat Heads. Four of us were vegetarians out of a table of ten. The vegetarian options were delicious. Everyone was very happy with their meals, the excellent service from the efficient staff and to George for catering and providing a well thought out Christmas Fayre Menu! A big thank you... More

My wife and I called without a booking at 5 p.m., so it was quiet but the kitchen was open. We waited in the saloon bar which was cosy with leather sofas. Our meal was well-cooked and plenty of it. Service for dessert was a little slow as we hadn't realised the main restaurant was also open, but the puddings... More

We stayed at Three Wheat Heads with friends as an early Christmas celebration and it proved an absolute gem. Our rooms were fairly basic in terms of facilities but very comfortable nonetheless. The food, however, was outstanding. The a la carte dinner menu is very comprehensive and everything we had was delicious. The wine list is perfectly adequate and the... More

As we have been regulars for Sunday lunch and having been disappointed it seemed an appropriate place to go with friends for Tuesday lunch. The staff are amazing in friendliness and efficiency. To say we were looked after well is an understatement. It's as if we were long lost friends. We all like good friendly service. Just as important is... More
