“Warm and Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

I have stayed at this B & B twice, each time for a week. Only once did I hear noise from the pub and that was on Christmas Eve. Noise was a concern before my first visit but I was not disturbed at all which is surprising because the pub is very busy. I found my rooms very comfortable and clean although the first single room upstairs had a shower that was useless as a stand under. This was because of the roof eave making it impossible to locate the shower at a suitable height. There are several chefs and I think this is why another reviewer found quality varies, however, nothing is too much trouble and the staff are very friendly with a special mention of Sheila. I think I know who the grumpy staff member mentioned in another review is, maybe grumpy is the wrong word but he doesn't have the personality suited to be front of house. Overall the atmosphere is very good. I have taken a point off because I found the wifi non existent in my first room and very hit and miss in the second one. Wifi elsewhere in the pub is excellent. I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: If wifi is important in the room choose carefully, likewise do not choose room 8 if you like to show...

My wife and I booked a table for two for the 'Wheatsheaf' Christmas Day lunch and what an amazing meal it was. Food all wonderful and the service and detail second to none. The Mulled wine was fantastic and just nothing was too much trouble for the staff to deal with. All the staff were clearly enjoying what they were doing. The Wheatsheaf is onto a winner with this kind of service. We have found a gem of a pub to relax in and to enjoy the great food on offer. Give it a try you won't be disappointed

Have stayed on a number of occasions while on business in the area. Always a friendly welcome, food varies from very good to excellent in terms of value for money and quality. There is also plenty of variety on offer. Good bar though some of the locals can get a bit loud; still beats a soulless hotel chain bar though. If your in the area on business or a short break, give it a go.

We stayed at this hotel as we were doing a wine estate tour at the nearby Bolney wine estate. Although it is near the main road through the village, it wasn't at all noisy. The decking/garden area is peaceful and beautiful. The food was excellent and good value and the locals were extremely friendly. Don't let the landlord blame you for his hangover though!

The room was clean and comfy and had everything you could want. Even though we arrived early they let us put our overnight things in the room. All in all it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a beautiful part of the country. We're already looking at dates to go again for a weekend as we enjoyed it so much.

Just returned from a 3 night stay here with my sister. We arrived and were greeted with a big smile which is a good start and we found all the staff to be helpful and pleasant. We decided to have lunch before we checked in and the food was delicious. The Goats Cheese and Caramelised Onion Tart comes highly recommended. We had requested an earlier check in for 2.30pm (normally 3pm) and the room was ready on time. We were then shown to Room 1 which is a twin-bedded room on the ground floor and as the room was at the back of the pub it was very quiet. There were plenty of towels, complimentary bath products, small tv, kettle and plenty of tea, coffee etc and a hairdryer. The only downside was that the room was very small and we kept trying to get out of each others way. The bathroom was small and dated although adequate but hadn't been cleaned particularly well (although cleaning did improve on subsequent days). The shower head had seen better days (needs a new one) so the shower wasn't too good. The breakfast was very good with a choice of juices, cereals, fruit, yogurt, full English etc. All in all a good stay and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 1 at the rear (twin bedded) is very quiet but don't choose if you're claustraphobic as...

Stayed here whilst on business. We received a very warm welcome, were shown to a small room on the first floor with a very snug bathroom, lots of fluffy towels, everything working and a comfy bed. We ate in the bar where the food was tasty, generous, reasonably priced and served by great staff. Breakfast was perfect, good quality ingredients cooked well.

There were two major problems staying here, the noise from the road, I only managed two hours sleep, and the member of staff who was winning the competition for the Mr Grumpy Award.

Room Tip: Take ear plugs
