“Sunday Lunch!”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Can only say positive things about this place. Beautiful location, dog friendly, very friendly staff - and although it was a very busy Sunday lunchtime, the service was excellent. Sunday lunch was superb - a real visual delight, and beautiful to eat. Quality. Booking is essential for a Sunday. And the ladies loos are a treat!

We stayed here with our 3 year old on our return journey from Cornwall. We arrived in the afternoon when the pub was closed but our keys had been left in a convenient place to enable us to enter our room. We struggled to find where the rooms were and then saw a couple sitting outside the accommodation sunbathing who looked horrified to see our 3 year old and struggled to exchange pleasantries - note - if people want a romantic night away without children you should check with the hotel to see if they allow children to stay overnight. Anyway, there is a lovely sitting area outside the pub and as we had a mini bar in our room we were able to take our drink and sit outside admiring the beautiful views and enjoying the weather. The room was lovely, the bed very comfortable as were the pillows and duvet. The decor was good and there was enough room to fit a travel cot down the side of the bed without feeling too cramped. We did feel that the shower need a good scrub though. The food in the restaurant was delicious, there wasn't a children's menu but we overheard a member of staff saying that the chef could create a suitable dish with pasta, we just ordered a starter for our daughter. The staff were friendly and welcoming, although we didn't want to outstay our welcome with a 3 year old in the restaurant. The room was warm and the surroundings serene although there was the gentle thudding of music until 7am, which we couldn't work out where it came from. Breakfast was good, although again didn't cater for children. Overall a good stay.

Food is of the highest quality and reflects the skills of good chefs, however let down by thoughtless management who put tables of two in a room with a party and children on a Friday night. A nice dinner out became a eat and let's leave as we can't hear ourselves talk. And what's even better typical french waiter who knows more about food than any one else and dumps food and runs. No explanation or pleasentrys. The chefs work very hard and they are let down by the team front of house. Would I go again ? For the food yes for the service no.

my wife and I have eaten here on many occasions lunch and dinner and recently stayed one evening to save the usual car worries. we were not disappointed. do come early and or book as it is very popular for meals. the service and food were of the highest quality (must have an excellent chef) and the room was well prepared and with pleasant decor and full facilities - shower room, tea/coffee/free water and juice etc good quality bed and very clean and cosy - the quiet and the sound of morning birds on a frosty but sunny morning was a joy to wake up to as was a full english breakfast and all the usual top level offerings of an equvalent 4 star hotel - everything you would expect from the friendliness and quality of this country business. the Wheatsheaf is easy to find with satnav and in a quaint and wonderful dell just 15 minutes from Bath. Beer and wines, dogs welcome - great outdoor eating and drinking areas for the summer - a grown up country pub/restaurant. this is on a par with the better restaurants in Bath

Room Tip: there are only 4 and are in outbuildings with own doors - this is the countryside so be prepared for...

We came here with my baby 10 months and my 3 yr old. My baby had spilt some food on the floor the manager flipped asked of we were just going to leave it (we hadn't even finished yet and of course would of made good before we left) then came back with a dustpan and brush and couldnt believe it when I asked him why he felt the need to talk and treat us so badly.
I have eaten in pubs and restaurants all over bath and couldn't believe how horrid this man was to us. We were just sat quietly eating our lunch!
A waiter who I have to say was rather lovely to me apologised and said he couldnt control him. Nice.
I would really eat somewhere else bath is full of wonderful places to eat with grey customer service. Maybe one at that man will realise that and buck his ideas up.

We arrived on a beautiful Spring morning to a wonderful welcome, and sat in front of a large open fire enjoying a pre lunch drink. The memorable experience was one not to be missed.
The staff were all very attentive and helpful, particularly the cleaner who shared my love of horses and ventured into our room to turn the TV on for us.
Having enjoyed an excellent lunch we relaxed in the very comfortable room, just a few steps from the pub.
The only drawback we found was the space for pre dinner drinks was limited once the pub was busy. A larger sitting area would be nice.
Would we go back again....definitely.

We had a night at the Wheatsheaf last week. Our only advice to arrive in daylight (it really is up and down the lanes, would hate to have done it for the first time in the dark!) Our room in the cowshed (Buttercup - nearest the road (irrelevant!)) was lovely, nice touches like home made cookies (v good) and fresh milk, super shower (bring a shower cap if you don't want soaked - or utilise the bin liner as I did!), seriously good bed and pillows (and we are fussy). Dinner was, well I am struggling for words. memorable is inadequate and the foie gras benedict was simply historic - I could probably have had it for all 3 courses (and I would have had to fight off my husband !) Excellent (and not unreasonable) wine list. It was an absolute treat. Go - and stay (there are 3 rooms) and breakfast was lovely too!
