Visited The Wheatsheaf at Brigsteer just after Christmas having learned that it had been reopened under the same ownership as one of my favourite haunts - The Masons Arms at strawberry bank. Its obvious that they have made a significant investment to turn this place into a real destination and it didn't disappoint. The interior is warm and welcoming, akin to the staff who were superb. I must admit being ready to eat my own arm by the time the food arrived, but once it did, it was what you'd expect from a restaurant such as this - gastropub food, done very well. I've no doubt that the Wheatsheaf will become very popular in the area and we look forward to returning in the summer...by which time there may be a terrace by the river if I'm not mistaken...

We dropped in on the Wheatsheaf Inn following a brisk winter walk. Great facilities for muddy boots & coats. Menu choices extensive & a good range of specials. Bright, efficient Italian waitress ensured our needs were met. Excellent beer & gd wine choice. Tasteful & relaxed decor. We will return.

We recently met a friend at the Wheatsheaf and had a really enjoyable, relaxed lunch. The hotel has been decorated very attractively, and has a welcoming atmosphere, with friendly and very helpful staff. We enjoyed delicious food and, although the vegetarian choices were not extensive, there was definitely enough variety to choose from. The three of us - two meat-eaters and one veggie - enjoyed very tasty and attractively-served dishes. We will defintely be spreading the word about his little gem and will be returning, soon we hope!

Recently refurbished to a high standard. Really lovely ambiance. Lots of nooks and crannies to sit in. Parking is a problem, even on a Wednesday night we struggled to find a place.
This is the second time we have visited and we were disappointed in the choices on the menu. There was only one special left on the board and no pizzas available. We were only given one menu for the four of us! Slightly over priced for what it was. Not as good as it's sister pub the Mason Arms for food.

Recently refurbished Inn with good food. Belongs to the same chain as The Mason's Arms on Strawberry Bank. Good atmosphere and menu. More of a gastropub than a straight pub food wise. Good selection of beers including Wainwright.

Parking can be limited if busy. Car park at rear often full.
