What a great pub. We came to collect a horse, and we were early. So a small libation was in order. Great atmosphere. Lovely presentaion. Slightly on the expensive side, but it is the Vale of Belvoir! The Wheel seems to specialise in game but we did not experience it. I would love to return for a full dining experience.... More

This pub came highly recommended but the reality did not match expectations. The presentation of the food was more pub grub than gastro pub...two of us ordered the pork ballotine which arrived as a pile of mush in the middle of the plate rather than the stuffed shaped piece of meat we were expecting. The red cabbage served with it... More

How to make your loved one happy......first rate food, fine wine in a fine glass and no fuss. A very relaxed Sunday lunch in an informal rustic setting where the food quality was perfect. Excellent host who cares that you have enjoyed yourselves. We did and the experience has prompted us to write our first ever review.

Enjoyed a relaxed pub lunch with friends. Great food, ale and service. Specials with local ingredients feature. Nice village location near Grantham in Vale of Belvoir.

Took my boyfriend and his friend here for Sunday lunch as per a recommendation but didn't rate it that much to be honest. Service was incredibly slow. We actually ended up asking had they forgot about us! Sunday dinner was average and slightly cold, prices were quite expensive. Wouldn't go back in a hurry. Disappointed.

We like The Wheel, and the food is good, but today it was 65 minutes from ordering to the main course arriving. It was quiet in the dining room compared to previous visits (maybe others have been disappointed by slow service?) and the prices are not cheap. It may be a while before we return....

Me and my family came here for lunch. The staff were pleasant, they told my parents the special things added to some dishes. The food was delicious. The flavour was on the dot, and the gravy was really good. Keep this up!
