Having visited this establishment previously we were expecting good things, sadly on this occasion we were disappointed with the menu choice, the service - one girl dealing with both the bar and the restaurant - The food when it arrived was nothing to write home about. Sorry will not be visiting again.

We booked a Sunday lunch for a large group well in advance as we were visiting the area. When we planned our order they informed us that they had run out of roast beef, so only some of our party could choose this and the rest had to order other dishes. They had no horseradish sauce which we found bizarre as it is a classic with beef! They did cater for one of our party who was gluten free which was good. We felt that the price was a bit high for the quality we received.

We have been to the Wheelwright many times before however our most revent visit was very disappointing. When we booked the table we were told they only had availability at 7.15 pm, however when we arrived the restaurant was very quiet and the bar deserted. We were shown to our table in the back room which now accommodates a large selection of secondhand furniture and bric a brac. The room was very warm, even though there was only one other table in use, and we asked if we could have a window open. The menu was presented on a well used piece of paper. Two members of our party ordered the prawn salad starter which comprised of a plate of shredded cabbage with a few very small prawns. Our main courses were also bland and not worth the money.

Visited on a saturday night = Only time available 6.15pm. Two staff dealing with bar and waitressing - long wait for service as the waitress appeared to have to bring crockery etc from the kitchen. My wife ordered fish and chips - chips luke warm and greasy. I ordered liver and bacon.- bacon appeared to be "old pig" and was awful as was the lambs liver which appeared to be the edge cuts of the liver - completely tasteless and a complete waste of money - was totally disappointing and a complete waste of money which probably accounted for the car park being almost empty on a saturday night!! Perhaps this is the reason why the pub cannot be adequately staffed on a Saturday night.
