Not recently (ie in last 9 months), but been 2-3 times in the previous year. Always good, fair-sized portions. Reasonable prices. About 3 separate rooms to dine in, but still has a lot of character.

Thanks Peter. I knew I wasn't alone on this forum in having enjoyed many a meal there in the distant past. OK I thought it was a bit quirky to be served the same 'pub salad' with both starter and main course, but the rest was pretty good and hey, salad IS good for you;-)

I've lost count of the number of times I've recommended it to people in search of a nice cozy pub supper, which makes it all the harder for me to say that I've just had the most awful visit. Everything that could possibly be wrong was wrong. I didn't even leave a tip and that never ever happens:(

you've got to call it as you see it. Is there a place for pub reviews on TA? What about a pub site like beerintheevening?

Your right of course, but I'm kind of reluctant as it used to be one of my favourites. Perhaps I should do a review here in the restaurant section. I've calmed down a bit now, but I was pretty upset about it yesterday.

Thats life I suppose:-)

Hi guys:

I ahven't been in the Wheatsheaf for a while so looking for some advice - if you were hiring it out for a party what type of numbers do you think it could accomodate?

Lots of different sized rooms, none especially big. Not really sure, sorry. How many people do you want to accommodate?

Why not give them a ring. I'd be interested to know how hospitable they sound.

Good to know Annie. How recent was your visit and what did you eat if you don't mind me asking.

thanks
