Location and contact

Welcome to The Wheatsheaf at Bough Beech, an independent pub restaurant serving freshly-made, inspiring food, cooked in our own kitchen by chef David Fuller and his talented team. We use only the finest local ingredients and produce from our kitchen garden to create seasonal dishes we think you'll love. But don't just take our word for it – have a look at our menus. Situated on the edge of the High Weald in west Kent, The Wheatsheaf is a stone's throw from Bough Beech reservoir, and just five minutes drive from Hever Castle. Once a hunting lodge rumoured to have been a much-loved retreat for King Henry VIII, it's still a firm local favourite today – and with its welcoming atmosphere, it's not

Visited whilst staying at Hever Castle. Even though they appeared to be short staffed service was very good. Food was excellent and cooked to perfection. I dine out regularly and this was one of the best meals I have eaten in a long time.

Stopped by here for lunch with a friend while out in the area. Was very impressed by the menu and the quality of the food. It's not often you find such high-quality food in country-side pubs. Definitely recommend for anyone passing by.

We stopped here for lunch and had fish and chips and burger. Both tasty, fair sized portions and enjoyable. Tables nicely spaced and good area outside. Priced about £50 (inc tip) with one alcoholic drink each.
