The Wheatsheaf is a pub that is full of character, and the staff are really friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Our party was offered the upstairs private dining room and we were allowed to play our own background music whilst we dined. The food was good, and the Wainwright's bitter was excellent. The rooms are basic but very comfortable,...

Decided to call in on a whim for Sunday Lunch. The place wasn't busy and we had a choice of tables, we chose one by the window in the front bar. Nothing fancy, just what we required. We were served fairly quickly and opted for the Sunday roast at £10.95 each. The food arrived in good time, hot and plenty...

Thank you for your review, although you label us as average it would appear that we performed really well so thanks again for the positives. The only thing we would challenge is your assertion that "a certain aunt" may have been responsible for the roasties, I can assure you that the only "Aunt" working in our kitchen is a lady...

We needed to stay overnight somewhere near Milnthorpe, and found the Wheatsheaf on the internet. It is a very old village pub which serves excellent evening meals, and has a number of comfortable bedrooms. We booked at the last minute and the only room available was a twin room with en-suite. There was a large shower cubicle in the en-suite,...

Returning home from a lovely three night stay at a cottage in Ambleside, we were in need of a good lunch. Travelling south on the A6 between Milnthorpe and Carnforth we started scanning for a good pub. As we were about to pass the turn for the village of Beetham we saw a sign for the Wheatsheaf Inn. Unfortunately, we...

We were recommended this restaurant and were so pleased to discover a lovely village and a charming place to eat with tasteful furnishings. There is a large car park opposite. The menu was extensive but we went for the £7.95 two course menu and had the choice of 4 main courses and four puddings. My husband chose well with the...

The hotel is situated in a very quite village good for walkers. The food served is excellent and a good choice is served each night. The sleep quality and rooms are also very good and clean with a very good car park over the road

After driving through dense fog from Lancaster we decided to have a break and pulled into Beetham to have lunch at The Wheatsheaf, a place we had been to several times before. I have strong memories of it from the time I was a student in the 70;s. We used to do some fieldwork on the nearby Fairy Steps. The...

Two of us popped in for lunch yesterday and had a great meal. Staff were very friendly and food came relatively quickly. Couldn't fault it. My husband, as always, wanted a slight amendment to his menu choice - which they sorted willingly. The only downside was a group on a table next to us who had a young child with...

Went here with colleagues from work for a Christmas lunch. We were sat upstairs as there was 15 of us. Lovely friendly service and meal was served quickly considering they hadn't asked us to pre-order. Food was excellent value for money - £7.95 for two course. Would definitely go for lunch deal again.
