We checked in here on a sub-zero temperature day back in November. The beautiful gardens were twinkling with frost, you park right outside the main building with a small flight of steps leading down to the three rooms where you can overnight. To call this a pub with rooms, personally I feel would do it a dis-service as the food... More

I recently visited the Wheatsheaf for our annual in- laws Christmas get together. When our food finally arrived the beef I had ordered came out extremely rare with my potatoes and veg virtually swimming in blood from the meat. As someone who likes their meat well done I could not eat this. As well as this the meat was stone... More

I visited the Wheatsheaf together with 3 friends for our annual pre-Christmas 'gentlemens' lunch. The staff were courteous and efficient, almost in too much of a hurry but that may have been due to some larger parties that were expected after us. I thought the menu choices were a little restricted - again this may have been due to the... More

Today we decided to go to the Wheatsheaf for a drink. At one time we used to go there at least once a fortnight, walking over the fields from Southstoke, for a drink and a pub lunch. When The Wheatsheaf changed hands some ten or so years ago, we were unfortunate enough to arrive on the day that they were... More

Very warm atmosphere and delicious food. The garden is lovely with a view to the village. There are two lovable friendly dogs who made our baby laugh all the evening. Personal service and huge range of wine. Highly recommend this place!

My main was tasty but for the price there was only a small amount of mash and no veg. Complete ripoff. Resulted in me having really bad indigestion due to too much meat.

This Restaurant/Pub with a few rooms is in an idyllic setting. On arrival the pub was still closed but the room had been made extremely welcoming with low lighting and classical music. Menu is seasonal and food cooked very well, although on each occasion the main was a hot meal on a cold plate! The father and son team work... More

We had read about The Wheatsheaf but never stayed there, so put that right last week. My wife and I stayed for two nights in this beautifully located and peaceful part of the country. The food, accommodation, location and staff were all excellent. The prices were realistic and yes, even Gloria and Margeaux (the two beautiful spaniels) added to the... More

Very luck to find this place (dare I admit it, on Google) and they had a table at short notice on a Saturday. Very friendly, welcoming atmosphere, open fire. Five of us were all very happy with our food - classy cod and chips with peas, sole with shrimps and capers, and a steak. The delicious chocolate desserts were a... More

Beautiful situation, the weather was good so ate outside. Starters were pretty good but expensive for what they are. My fish was overcooked (£20) and small, my wife's ham was undercooked almost raw, unfortunately she would not let me complain so brought the ham home for the dogs who enjoyed it ! Rather aloof owner at the bar, we won't... More

Description
Named as a 'Rising Star' in the Michelin Guide 2008, The Wheatsheaf in Combe Hay - only 15 minutes from the centre of Bath – is hotly tipped to become one of the south west's top dining destinations. This award-winning restaurant overlooks the village of Combe Hay which is nestled at the southern tip of the Cotswalds, and was recently voted as one of The Times top 20 villages to live in. It goes without saying the food at The Wheatsheaf is spectacular. Head Chef Lee Evan has earned a stellar reputation for his modern British cooking, and signature dishes include the lasagne of Cornish crab, ginger and lemongrass foam; and the loin of venison served with apple and truffle risotto.
