Our first visit & certainly won't be our last. From entering to leaving the whole experience was perfect. I had a goats cheese & beetroot salad followed by fish pie. Loved it all. The red wine was great as was the beer. Can't wait for our next visit. So glad we couldn't get in to our first choice for the... More

We had lunch here, in this lovely pub / restaurant. We had a Fell Man sharing board which comprised of locally sourced meat, cheese and breads. Absolutely fantastic. Service was efficient and friendly. Would definitely revisit.

This country pub is tastefully furnished. The staff are very polite and attentive without being over the top. Our food was very good indeed and I have to give a big thumbs up to FRESH pineapple on the flatbread. My only criticism is the cost of the wine, I paid less in central London last week!

Water a small lunch so had ciabatta with Brie and red onion relish toasted. It was absolutely gorgeous! Home cut chips were heaven and the small portion fish and chips was plenty for a main meal and superb quality.

We ate a sea bass dish and a steak, both very tasty and well cooked. The waitress and service were good. We both had sticky toffee pudding with apparently peanut butter ice cream, though it tasted like vanilla to me. My only criticism is the price. We paid almost £60 for these dishes and a couple of pints of ale,... More

We always eat at the Wheatsheaf when in the area, which is about 3 times a year and are never disappointed with the food, service and atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. On this occasion I had the fish pie, easily the best fish pie I have had, I couldn't manage desert as it... More

we have been for a meal for the last to weekends with different members of the family who were over the moon with the food selection. The only slight downfall was the vegetarian selection which was poor as two members are veggies, Perhaps the menu could do with changing a bit more often. Special mention must go to the Italian...

Following a recommendation from a local, we popped in for a light lunch of sandwiches. The food was delicious, the decor and ambiance was very pleasant, as were the staff. Would call in again.

Atmosphere is lovely and the staff are very polite and helpful. Food is tasty overall. However the options and choices for vegetarians is extremely limited. Wouldn't go purely for that reason as I'm veggie myself.
