Being a regular customer, I could be accused of being biased, but the fact that I am a regular surely suggests that it is just a very, very, very good pub. Dishes such as Schnitzel, Tartiflette, Mussels, pasta with fresh truffles, cold beef sandwiches, Devilled Kidneys, Escargot, Osso Bucco and a fantastic Sunday roast have kept me coming back for...

We last visited this pub in 1973 when it was hosted by a German couple and had a very pleasant meal. After looking around the area again for alternatives to the many eating places in the Bottesford Grantham area we decide to try the Wheel again,with disappointing results. The staff (two young peoplein the bar area were very pleasant.. The... More

Having dined at The Wheel Inn on a number of occasions, it is really an exceptional pub and never fails to keep us coming back. We thoroughly enjoy the very relaxed dining, really fine wines and truly sumptuous food! The steaks in particular are outstanding, and rank amongst the finest I have eaten - even being from the Southern Africa's... More

Lovely roast with lots of fresh veg, gluten free gravy and chocolate terrine ! The rest of us had the roast beef or turkey with all the trimmings... More

Early doors on a cold Autumnal Evening - Slow cooked Pork Belly with Dauphinoise Pots and Braised Red Cabbage and a classy glass of Syrah. A dish that perfectly suited the atmopshere; the season; and the mood. Well cooked, well presented, and a hearty portion. This was an honest delivery of super pub food.

We went to there for dinner and it was ok. My food came and was cold, it was returned and the waiter said it was a fresh dish but it was not- you could see the fork mark where I had tried the cold food! The portion size of the fish and chips was very small and the pea puree... More
