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

We stopped here for two nights on our way back to the midlands from Cornwall. A bit of an unknown quantity from the website but we were really pleasantly surprised when we arrived on a warm sunny afternoon, just before they closed, and in time to get a good bottle of Rose and sit in their beautiful extensive and tranquil...

Saturday night meal, place not very busy but a nice friendly atmosphere. The food was brilliant, maybe even exceptional...one of the best meals in a long long time. No sign of the begging dogs others have mentioned. Not cheap, but decent value given the quality.

The room was lovely and cosy with great attention to detail. The meals were all fantastic and the hosts were very welcoming. The dogs were around when in the bar or dining area, but were incredibly well behaved so lovely to have around. Most definitely worth a visit!

I highly recommend coming to this lovely establishment. We found this pub/restaurant in the Waitrose good food guide otherwise we'd never have stumbled across it. The food was excellent and beautifully presented, really superb as was the service, ambiance and decor. I took my parents as a treat for their anniversary and for the three of us with 3 courses...

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.
