Welcoming and friendly staff, we were served quickly. We had pheasant and a halloumi burger for main and cheesecake and honeycomb crunch for pudding. Everything was very tasty. Lovely atmosphere.

The vegetarian starter and main course were both well cooked and tasty. Beetroot main was particularly good. Clearly not out of a packet. Pub was welcoming and friendly

We went to this place by accident as we were looking to go to another pub in the area. What a lovely place to have a drink and dine. If your the kind of person that loves sitting by the fire I would recommend this...place!!! We had a table next to the fire which was brilliant. The staff are so friendly and the food was pricey but well worth the money as it is fine dining. What impressed us more was the layout of the pub, even though it is small the place is evenly spaced out so your not too close to other visitors. A job well done and I can’t wait to come again 😊More

Booked for Sunday Lunch after calling in for a drink a few weeks before, arrived early but this wasn't a problem as we were shown upstairs to our table. Excellent Sunday Menu with plenty of choices unlike many other places, opted for the mixed Sunday...Roast followed by the gorgeous Lemon Curd Cheesecake which was recommended by our quirky waitress Stevie who informed us that she takes 2 slices home with her each weekend and I can honestly see why. Fabulous meal in a wonderful setting, if your in the area you must call in and try for yourself. Thanks again to everyone especially Stevie, looking forward to revisiting soonMore

Visited the wheashef today on a walk nearby and had a lovely evening. Stayed for food and a few drinks at the bar and by the end of the evening we felt like we have been coming here our whole lives. The lovely woman Danni...who served us was amazing. Had some lovely conversations and a few laughs with her. Defiantly a credit to the business and we will definalty be back soon.More

We popped in during a walk from Cropston reservoir, were met by a very polite young man and lady, we ordered a few drinks and were chatting like they were old friends within minutes. Very unusual in this day and age, the girl fussed our...dog and we talked about Formula 1 for half an hour. Reminded me of how pubs used to be with the emphasis on hostelry and not profit. Altogether a real refreshing experience and will definitely return. Well done to the young staff at the Wheatsheaf!More

The seven of of visited the Wheatsheaf for Sunday lunch. We had a fantastic table in the new “garden room”. The food was beautifully cooked and well presented, served by friendly and efficient serving staff. A well stocked bar left us all well watered and...with full tummies. Vicky and the team should be very proud of themselves!More

We visited The Wheatsheaf Inn to have a quick evening meal when we were in the area. We had one burger and an altered burger to suit dietary requirements as I can’t have black/white pepper. Thought I would have to eat food that didn’t suit...and deal with the consequences. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they could accommodate and it was really tasty. We've been here before lockdown and the food has always been nice but usually I have to book somewhere before to see if I can eat there/warn them of my dietary requirements so it was great to just be able to pop in somewhere and be able to eat. We were too full for pudding but they’re always amazing when we do have them. The employees were all really nice and the whole place was very clean. There’s indoor and outdoor seating. Great experience, will be visiting here again.More
