The Wheatsheaf Inn Restaurant

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Think of the Wheatsheaf as a place to relax. For people looking for comfort to socialise where it is as much about drinking as eating think "The Wheatsheaf Inn".The Wheatsheaf is about value for money, your need to escape, to relax and enjoy, somewhere where the food is traditional and comforting, all homemade on site using nothing but fresh local produce. Enjoy the company of family and friends. Watch the latest sporting event on the large screens. It more than just a pub it is a time - honoured village pub at the heart of the local community

This is a public house with a limited number of tables and booking ahead is advised. The food was fresh, hot and well presented in a bar setting. On balance we felt the portion size of the vegetables was slightly short in the main meal...More

Hi We do allow dogs in the pub as long as well behaved and will just sit by table and they are not massive dogs. Thank you.
