In the past I have come here a lot, and I've always been very satisfied, but I came in about a month ago and it was a disaster. I did say something to the management at the time. I went back today, and what a difference. The staff were friendly & efficient, the food ( roast) was delicious, hot and lots of of it! There was no wait and I couldn't have been more pleased.

This is actually a hotel but we went there for Sunday lunch.

The restaurant area is huge and it was FULL of people - probably a good 20-30 too many to be honest.

We did get a reasonable table by a window so that was fine.

The food is chain-style pub grub - nothing to write home about in all honesty. We were 8 people and chose a selection of roasts: gammon and pork (beef was sold out at 2pm - sadly!) and a rump steak. The roasts looked very different from plate to plate - some had a lovely large fluffy Yorkshire pudding - others had a small flat one. The gammon was COVERED in gravy - so much that you couldn't actually see the meat (it was there though). This was too much and made the plates look rather unpleasant.

The pork was tasteless and over-cooked. The rump steak had no seasoning on it whatsoever and it came with overcooked chips (so-called 'triple-cooked' chips - but what's the point if that just means over cooked?), a few onion rings and cold cherry tomatoes and some dry leaves of rocket.

The puddings were also disappointing - the smallest crème brulee ever seen and apple pie which looked like something you buy frozen in Tesco!

Not a great meal by any standards.

They did have a reasonably priced Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wine at £17.00 - which was delicious - so if you are going for a drink, this place is probably fine.

This is a perfectly satisfactory basic hotel cum pub. The room (no 4) was front facing so gets road noise but I slept well. Restaurant is not wonderful but there are lots of local alternatives. Hotel backs directly onto Virginia Water lake which is great. At the price I was quite happy and will stay again.

In the past this has been a wonderful place to eat after walking in Virginia Water but to day was frankly awful. The service was so bad we had to ask for our money back and go as it was taking so long to get our food, very sad as am loath to go back there again.

Stayed here for works Xmas party as this was at Wentworth. Decent enough, rooms were clean, good shower, comfy bed.

Bar is well overpriced though. Didn't sample the food here as didn't have breakfast, but sure that it's decent.

I've certainly stayed in worse hotels!!

This is a hotel with potential but is in need of complete refurbishment and, may I say, a need for management to stand back and look at the basics The first impression of any traveller is the hotel reception. In this case its a mess with paperwork all over the place, stuffing sticking out of the receptionist's chair. Pressing the call button produced no result until one of the passing staff attended to us. It did not bode well passing tthe toilet with an 'out of action notice stuck to the door' and yet more chairs with stuffing sticking out. The room was a good size with a double bed however, the heater did not work and there was mould round the bath.
The evening meal was well prepared and breakfast was good, the staff were attentive given the demands on their time.
All in all we would not stay at the Wheatsheaf again unless it is brought up to standard.
I trust management find the comments helpful
