Lovely country pub on the outskirts of the village. Large outside seating area and perfect for a summer evening meal. This is spoilt slightly by the road to the car park going through the middle not ideal if you have children. We chose the fish...More

Called in at short notice. Staff as friendly and helpful as ever. Food was very hot, obviously freshly cooked, and beautifully presented. Cost was good.

An ordinary menu that is very expensive. Over £40 for two rounds of drinks and 2 Fish and Chip suppers. Service was good with friendly staff. It appears however that the locals appear to get served quicker than anyone else. There are better pubs in...More

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 like a crackling wood fire to welcome you on a wintry day and our extensive courtyard garden is the perfect place to relax throughout the summer. Join us for a taste of good old-fashioned hospitality.
