Location and contact

The Wheatsheaf Inn is a friendly, traditional pub and restaurant at the heart of the Woodhouse Eaves community. The inn dates back to the 18th century and used to be a meeting place for the local slate miners, when it was know as the 'Slate Splitters Arms'. The character of the building and courtyard can still be felt today - the warm welcome and friendly atmosphere still hold true too. Its rural location on the edge of the village makes it the perfect place for friends, families, dog walkers, riders and visitors from near and far to share a hearty meal or a cooling drink. We can sit groups of many sizes and our spacious interior has a wealth of cosy corners to escape into. There's nothing quite

After visiting Bradgate Park, on recommendation, we found the Wheatsheaf Inn at Woodhouse Eves for a light lunch. We arrived slightly later than the lunch time rush (it gets very popular and booking is recommended). There was a warm welcome from all staff, an open...More
